That sounds like a lot to me, but I suppose it is only because I did not live through the golden age of the forum, back in the 2012's. Would you share how many of those ballots are from lurkers?

Except I haven't received a ballot from mañana, and that pretty much invalidates the current results. So we must wait.
Especially since he is one of the The Forbidden Room supporters (and even was already back in 2015, IIRC).

If mañana has seen at least four of the Overlooked nominees, he'll likely decide the category.

Would you share how many of those ballots are from lurkers?

A small handful came from regular members who have been quiet lately, but I don't think any of the voters qualify as true lurkers.

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

Insane week at work has put me behind. Will definitely submit soon.

Can't believe I actually saw everything and there wasn't a single film that was a complete waste of my time (Dory was the closest).

Finding Dory is the Happy-To-Be-Nominated film of 2016 — the only nominee to receive zero votes on the final ballot.

Watched after the Filmspots:

Moana 20°

This was lesser than Zootopia and as a whole, I think it exoticizes Pacific culture in a cheapening way. On the positive side, Moana is a great role model for young girls. The crab scene was disliked by some of you here. I think it was a great show stopper at the one hour mark and the psychedelic vibe of it was the take away thing from the movie for my part.

Long Way North 60°

Another young girl who take her destiny in her own hands and sails away; what a great double feature this is together with Moana! I loved the way this film was animated. The flatness of the images. The restrained color palette. It escapes me how this didn't get a Best Animated Film nomination.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

It wasn't for lack of me trying...Glad to see more people catching up to it, even though you're the only one who was properly enthusiastic about it.
