It's hard to fill out a ballot when some of these first posts haven't been updated in weeks. Good recommendations are going to be overlooked.

Oh yeah, I think in my rush to get the ballots posted, I forgot to update Lines and Scenes/Shot. :-/

Are any other threads out-of-date?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

@noff. I love the Jack Reacher love! I can't believe you wouldn't love the books. Actually they work very well as Audiobooks, the dialogue and action scenes.

I like this scene in the bar because MacQuarrie has attached his dialogue style to the character. Reacher tends not to talk this much, because he doesn't need to. Don't you think Cruise is saying a lot given the situation?

I used to encourage everyone I knew to make art; I don't do that so much anymore. - Banksy

My nomination ballot. I'd better send it in quick - tomorrow I've most certainly changed my mind again.
And yes - I didn't nominate anything in the animation category. The only one I've seen on the consideration list is poppy hills and I didn't care for that very much. I watched and loved Frankenweenie which opened in Sweden in 2013 but I guess it's not eligible...

Also: I don't watch a lot of comedies so I found it a little hard to remember anything special here. Sorry. I guess I'm a bit of a bore. :)

I know! :(
Frozen hasn't opened in Sweden yet. I missed Monsters Uni.
I watched the poppy hill one but didn't like it a lot.
And I think Frankenweenie counts as a 2012 movie for the rest of you guys. So I couldn't come up with anything atm

Only if you want to be transparent with everyone about what you voted for.
