Nominations are due in like 18 days. Not sure I can watch all 50+ movies I want to see before then, but I'm damn well gonna try.

(Spoiler: I will continue my annual tradition of watching like just three movies and too get too consumed with organizing the Filmspots to fully participate in them.)

edit: I generally like mirroring the Oscar timeline, but this year the nomination window seems too short and the post-nomination window seems too long. I'm thinking we should push the deadline for nominations back from January 22 to January 29 (with nominees announced February 1). Final ballots would still be due March 5. Any thoughts on that?

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

Means the last of the big contenders should get to me right on time for the final ballot. Fine by me

Can we do Best Costume Design this year? Or maybe can somebody remind me why we're not doing Best Costume Design?

There was a poll way back when, and eventually it just became nice to keep consistent categories through the years. If Costume or Makeup were going to return, it'd really have to be in place of one of the existing categories because an additional category would create additional work, and I'm already at or beyond my limit each January and February.

I think leaving that under the umbrella of Artistic Direction is fine.
