I'm still accepting ballots for another twenty-four hours or so. Just give me a heads up if I should still expect one from you.

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

Can you do a call of everyone you've gotten a ballot from so far?

Let me tabulate them real quick first! (Been a busy week.)

I don't want to overburden pixote in terms of whatever presentation is opted for, but I'd like to note forum chat was working again as of the Oscars so the prospect of a live chat reveal is available.

When will winners be announced?

The winners will be revealed in a live chat at March 14, 2018, 09:00:00 PM. (That time should be correct in your local time zone, if you have your Time Offset configured correctly in the Look and Layout section of your profile.)

'Tis the plan!

Sadly, moving and vacation kept me from seeing more than 4 additional nominees post announcement (have a hard drive with like 8 more!) in both of the weighting switches, I opted for the other one :(.

Of the 4, 1 was a nice return to form and one of my favourites of the year. 1 was a mildly interesting formal exercise but lacking any punch. 1 was pleasant fluff with some questionable charater development. And 1 was the worst film of 2018! So quite the varied selection spotters, well done!
