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

I didn't check every film, but for the ones I need to see:

Netflix
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
The Guest
Jauja
The Look of Silence
The Overnighters
Phoenix
Tangerine

Amazon Prime
The End of the Tour
Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem
God Help the Girl
Slow West

Not sure how I'm going to see Anomalisa. It's not on DVD until May.

I will certainly watch unless the creek rises
The Assassin
Mommy
Spotlight
Steve Jobs
The Big Short

I will watch if the opportunity arises
Brooklyn
Creed
The Hateful Eight
The Peanuts Movie

I will watch if the mood strikes me
God Help the Girl
Jauja
Kurt Cobain
Mistress America

I probably won't ever watch
Look of Silence
The Revenant
Son of Saul



Final tally:  Only seven unseen before my ballot is turned in.  Not bad.

I would really push for Gett.  Except it's only for Overlooked Film.  But it is so great.

It's something of a relief to me that the nominees for Overlooked Film do appear to be relatively unseen. For comparison:

Overlooked Film         
29%
Debut Feature
34%
Documentary
41%
Surprise
45%
Animated Film
50%

Lots of potential influence to be wielded in those first two categories.

Even with two nominations I've been seeing a lot of people voicing low interest in Blind. I don't know if that is based on reading the description or just assumed based on not knowing about it. But either way, it saddens me.

Of the four unseen I have, three are in the bottom five, so I feel in good company.
