Filmspots 2016: Nominated Films Checklist

Select the films you HAVEN'T seen in the poll above.

(Hopefully it's not a spoiler that the final seven films in the nominations countdown all received at least one nomination. Truth be told, they all received at least six.)

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

I've seen 31 or 46 so far, keeping alive my goal of finally seeing all the nominees before submitting a final ballot. Certain Women is the one I'm worried about, in terms of availability. I'm hoping in magically appears on DVD sometime during the next four weeks.

The Edge of Seventeen
Embrace of the Serpent
The Forbidden Room
The Invitation

This group looks like one of those games where people collectively write a story — or, in this case, erotica. "At the Edge of Seventeen, she received The Invitation to The Forbidden Room and felt the Embrace of the Serpent ... something something something ... Lemonade!"

Maybe it's time for bed.

pixote

Do you mean "out of 46" ? Because otherwise, that is one large margin of error...

EDIT: If my timestamps are not misworking, you've stayed up all night working on the nominations countdown? That's a huge workload to expect of you in the middle of a week. Wouldn't it go easier on you if we spread this out during one week next year?

Should we update our answers before you compute your results if we watch new things until then pixote?
