Filmspots 2016: Final Ballot
« on: January 27, 2017, 02:11:27 PM »
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 Monday, February 27 (extending into Tuesday 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 at March 02, 2017, 09:00:00 PM, if a working chat room is available to us. (That time should be correct in your local time zone, if you have your Time Offset configured correctly in the Look and Layout section of your profile.)

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.

If you submitted a nominations ballot, I'll send a copy of the final ballot to your private messages about a week before the voting deadline.
