Glad that Tangerine made a good showing. Also glad that 45 Years didn't make it anywhere so that it can get a full push next year.

Considering that 2015 was one of my worst years for catching new stuff in quite a while, I have fewer multi-nom films to see than expected (and only 5 with 3 or more noms).

Thanks for the info on The Assassin, Bondo. That'll be my top priority.

Is it of any concern to the Best Debut nomination that Selma was Ava Duvernay's third theatrically released film?

I'm pretty cool with this group of nominees, even if my Steve Jobs bombing didn't really work.

At least it got nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.  Unlike the Oscars, the Filmspots are immune to Laurene Powell Jobs' you-didn't-mention-me-or-my-kids campaign against the film.

The Sorkin commentary (with the Editor, too!) was really interesting. Basically laid out how much of the incident of the film was made up (his boss and he never spoke again after Jobs was fired from Apple) but the truth of the relationships were there.

That's my thought on the lack of The Lobster.

From FAQ:

Why are there no FYC mentions for the Overlooked Film category?

The nominees for Overlooked Film are not determined by direct vote. The category isn't a part of the nominations ballot. Rather, the nominees are chosen from among the films that received votes in all of the other categories but failed to earn any nominations.

I wonder if I single-handedly got A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night a nomination here?

I am very much out of the loop this year. A couple of these I'll be watching in the near future, but not enough to be comfortable casting a vote.


Seen:

     Spy
     The Martian
     Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

     Trainwreck

Really want to see:

     Song of the Sea
     Amy
     The Overnighters

Would maybe be willing to watch:
     Inside Out
     The Big Short

     Crimson Peak
     Mistress America

Don't much want to see:
     The Revenant
