This is my first year voting, and tbh I'm really shocked how many categories resemble my ballot.
and One 5/5's
The category i got 0/5 in: Biggest Surprise
The category I got 5/5 in: Best Soundtrack
The categories I got 4/5 in: Best Supporting Actress, Best Animated Film
Biggest Disappointment: Best Cinematography (1/5)
I'm not too disappointed to see Selma and The Raid 2 be looked over, but who put Interstellar above Cavalry or Blue Ruin?
Happiest Surprise: Best Actor (2/5), Best Picture (2/5), Best Original Screenplay (3/5)
Really glad to see Whiplash and Nightcrawler getting their due love. Especially in the acting category (was sure Teller would be overlooked). Even though I didn't get a lot of my films through, I'm happy with the nominations that beat them out (The Grand Budapest and Under the Skin in particular).
The Snubs: Selma and Imitation Game were both great films, but honestly the reason I love FS is because you guys focus your love on the more effective indie scene; and in that way, the indies are out in full force. Even Locke and Frank managed their way into the nominations. My only complaint may be that Starred Up seems to have been overlooked, if no where else, for best actor alone (though i really am happy with the best actor category, so I'm not too upset).
I guess I have some foreign films and doc's to catch up on. Aside from that I'm pretty well versed in the nominations, and already see where 90% of my votes will be going.
