So let me start off by saying, I think it can be universally agreed that 2015 was a rock solid year in film. It seems like everyone has a top 10 they are happy with, and those 10 films seem to be entirely different person to person. In one way, that is fantastic, but there is a small issue I imagine will come to light very shortly; With only a few exceptions, there may not be very much consensus regarding this year's filmspots.
That being said, I've thought this would be a good idea since I started voting in the filmspots and this year is a perfect year to see if it has value, I propose this topic be used to write up shortish voting campaigns for nominees we feel the strongest about. Obviously, this isn't the oscars, who wins isn't of much actual significance, and this tradition is more for fun and discussion than anything else; Still I think given the maturity of the community and our collective want for discussion, these campaigns can prompt conversations and additional consideration if not actual support.I'm not suggesting we argue over who should win. But we definitly can discuss why we feel something is worth voting for, so that
(as the filmspotting forum creed should read) no good film go unseen/unconsidered.
If this is an idea you think might be interesting, go on and defend your votes; if not, i understand that maybe you all aren't as naturally argumentative as I am, and that this might be making too much of something that should just be for fun. Either way, I'm very excited for the filmspots to commence.
