I will, thanks. I ignore the spoiler section before and usually forget about it after I have seen a film.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

The Hateful Eight (Quentin Tarantino, 2015).

Reviewed for The 100 Club.

It won for Best Score 2015, the sole win out of nine nominations.

Mommy — Soundtrack

Reviewed this one here for the Top 100 Club. Had I seen Mommy in time for the 2015 Filmspots, I would have added another vote to its already dominant Soundtrack win — though with some reluctance, given that the use of Oasis' "Wonderwall" ("every last note of it") struck me as a rather stale choice, especially in contrast to the other more inspired selections. With the Counting Crows song, for example, the film was able to take a largely forgotten track and reinvent it as something new and fresh (as vintage). Not so with "Wonderwall", which reduced the underlying visuals (in their 1:1 ratio) to YouTube B-roll for the song.

I wouldn't have added any final ballot votes in the Non-Foreign Language Film or Dramatic Scene categories, and my additional votes on the nominations ballot wouldn't have been enough to garner nominations for Dorval or Clément.

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

Certified Copy.

I don't remember Yun Jung-Hee's performance in Poetry well enough to know whether I might have chosen Binoche over her, so I guess I'll continue to abstain until I catch up with Fish Tank, Meek's Cutoff, and Melancholia.

A Separation and The Tree of Life would still have earned my votes in Certified Copy's other nominated categories.
