I did not have Time in a Bottle on my ballot but I fully support its nomination!

It managed to stick on mine all year. Mostly because I didn't do a good job of noting other candidates and there wasn't even a FYC thread until recently.

The Wind Rises (5)
     Adapted Screenplay
     Non-English Language Film
     Animated Film
     Sound
     Score

Note: The Wind Rises qualified for a nomination, tying for fifth place in the balloting. However, out of an abhorrence of ties, and taking into account the film's 2014 theatrical release in the US, I made the (rare) executive decision to delay its eligibility until next year, where it might well be competitive in other categories besides Animated Film.

Hope everyone is more or less okay with that.

Good job, me! :)

I've seen seven of the nominated film. Maybe I'm the wrong person for this job.

I'm in better shape with the Filmspots than the Oscars. Not having seen Whiplash or Nightcrawler is gonna hurt my voting power a lot though.

I've seen all of the originals, zero adaptations. How long do I have to watch these?

March 1.

The following vote-getters were the most painfully close to making the final ballot. A single extra fifth-place vote for any of them would have been enough to make the difference.

Actor: Selma - David Oyelowo
Animated Film: The Boxtrolls
Cinematography: The Immigrant
Documentary: 20,000 Days on Earth
Editing: Gone Girl
Line: Snowpiercer - "Know your place. Accept your place. Be a shoe."
Non-English Language Film: We Are the Best!
Original Screenplay: The Lego Movie
Dramatic Scene: Under the Skin - In the Goo
Dramatic Scene: Interstellar - Video Tapes
Score: Only Lovers Left Alive
Score: Inherent Vice
Score: Whiplash
Visual Effects: The Grand Budapest Hotel

A more complete list of runners-up is below. The nominees for Supporting Actor appear to have had the most consensus.

The films in blue became the nominees for Best Overlooked Film. The initial shortlist for that category (based on screens played and current availability) also included:

The Guest
Nymphomaniac
The Rover
Dear White People
The Skeleton Twins
20,000 Days on Earth
Happy Christmas
The Double
Starred Up

After analyzing the voting data, there were four clear nominees plus this final group of candidates:

Dear White People
20,000 Days on Earth
Bird People

Bird People's single vote for Best Picture was the tie-breaker here, earning it the final spot. (NOTE: That spot would have gone to Listen Up Philip, but that film won't be available on DVD until March 10, so it's Filmspot eligibility will extend to 2015 instead.)

Interesting, since Philip did get a VOD release. I know VOD isn't quite the same thing as a DVD release for many, but I wonder if it is something we should take into account going forward.

It's been considered in the past, but the main obstacle there is I'm not aware of a good resource to determine what had a VOD release and when.

Even then, I might be resistant to adding another wrinkle.
