    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.

    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.

    ^Why bother entering?  Apparently Best Picture is going to BRIDESMAIDS and its revolutionary fart jokes.

    Yet Bucky Larson Born To Be a Star went ahead and entered.

    All the studios automatically enter every one of their movies, so though it seems absurd, that’s just the way these things go.

    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
