Looks like a good list to me FG

I take it we can only nominate stuff released in 2006? Is there any leeway on that at all?

Try and take it from roughly the past 12 months. That smudges the boundaries slightly.

Things from the past year or lifetime acheivement. Nothing speciific, just things you think merit such a prestigious title.

No I mean I don't have the opportunity of reading many screenplays before the film is made - or screenplays of which films are ever made.

Me neither. So take as best screenplay based upon what you get from the film.

Can we only vote for certain categories? I generally don't watch television... so I'd be at a loss for that section completely.

This is one of those things where I can't vote honestly, or half of my nominations will be worthless because I'll be the only one who nominates them.... :sad:

I think I might have to start a campaign amongst my Wire-loving brethren to get The Wire into at least one of the categories, either best TV show or best TV actor, I suppose...

I nominated The Wire for best TV Show, I couldn't decide on which Wire Actor to vote for so I nominated Michael C Hall but added if there were nominations for an Actor from the Wire that my nomination should go to them, and of course Lester Freamon got my vote for best Screen Detective.

Holy shit, what I douche I was, when I was considering which Wire Actor to vote for I was considering Freamon, Omar, Bodie and Bubbles, now that I have actually thought about it I should have voted for Seth Gilliam who plays Ellis Carver, man he was without a doubt the best last season.

I was thinking that but really she doesn't have a lot to do.

I nominated Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer, not that I think it'll matter, it'll probably go to someone from BsG anyway.
