Here’s the link to the list:
by my count, there will be between 650-700 feature films that will have played 7 days in LA county this year, so once again, fewer than half bother to enter.
I will peruse this tomorrow, but already I see that Poetry didn’t file the necessary papers. I assume there will be other significant foreign and indie titles, as well as a lot of stuff without any chance.December 19, 2011 at 9:54 pm #47097
To repeat a comment I made in past years – one reason that some small distribs don’t submit the forms is that it is a handy excuse when they get pressure to waste money on campaigns that won’t lead to anything, and are willing to take the abuse momentarily to avoid the whole issue.December 19, 2011 at 9:56 pm #47098
^Why bother entering? Apparently Best Picture is going to BRIDESMAIDS and its revolutionary fart jokes.December 19, 2011 at 10:26 pm #47099
Yet Bucky Larson Born To Be a Star went ahead and entered.December 19, 2011 at 10:28 pm #47100
All the studios automatically enter every one of their movies, so though it seems absurd, that’s just the way these things go.December 20, 2011 at 3:08 pm #47101
Here’s a list of 337 films I show having opened in LA for at least a week and which did not enter papers to qualify, and their distributors (when known) –
(caveats: some of the were ineligible because of earlier VOD showings; a couple because they were FL nominees last year; also, some docs became eligible in that category by other means)
265 films – fewer than half that opened – qualified
