This may have been discussed elsewhere, but how is weighting going to work for Best Year?

I was pondering that myself the other day, and I think that category will be have to be unweighted. I haven't thought of a weighted approach that really makes sense. Plus, you can sort of evaluate a year just by reputation, the effect on a person's career, etc., with only a passing familiarity with the actual films.

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

Agreed, I was hoping it wouldn't be weighted.

Thanks for the link!
This took a turn I definitely did not expect.

The final ballot will be posted tonight and sent out to those who sent in a nominations ballot (though that's not a prerequisite to submitting a final ballot).

The deadline to vote will be Wednesday; winners announced on Thursday.
