Filmspots 2015: Final Ballot
« on: April 06, 2016, 04:19:05 AM »
Below is the final ballot for this year's Filmspots. To vote, please copy-and-paste the ballot into a private message to me. You can vote anytime from now through Sunday, April 10 (extending into Monday morning).

You don't have to vote in every category, but there's also no need to abstain just because you haven't seen a key nominee or two. Part I of the ballot lets me know which films you haven't yet seen, and that's taken into account in tabulating the results. That way, your vote for the best nominee you've seen doesn't hurt the nominees you haven't seen.

Voting is open to everyone. You don't have to have submitted a nominations ballot in order to vote on this final ballot.

Winners will be announced in a live chat on Thursday, April 28 at 7pm Eastern time (if a working chat room is available to us).

If you have any questions, please ask them here.

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