    Happy new year guys! 2020 is finally ending!

    To celebrate I thought we could share top 10 lists for this year? These isn’t necessarily a personal awards thread (largely because this year the season hasn’t ended yet) but rather a celebration of the films that have come during this year (6/7ths of the eligibility period).

    What is eligible for this list: Any film released in the United States between January 1st and December 31st (including this with limited releases like Pieces of a Woman and Minari)

    What is ineligible: Films like The FatherNomadland or The Mauritanian which will have releases in 2021

    Looking forward to see what is on all your lists!

    FYC OSCARS : PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. ACTRESS – Carey Mulligan AND ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY — EMERALD FENNELL), VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", ESSIE DAVIS FOR "BABYTEETH"

    I won’t be doing my list yet but when I do I’m just gonna include everything that’s eligible for Oscars. It’s too confusing otherwise, especially as I’m in the UK at the moment where stuff like Parasite technically came out in 2020.

    Wolfali, you bring up an interesting point.

    I am interesting in doing my annual “Personal Awards” thread as usual, but would people want that sooner or later?

    My personal awards are limited to 2020, but I know some will be going with the awards calendar and including some 2021 releases?

    Thoughts, everyone? Should I start a thread soon and you will get to it when you like? Or should I hold off another couple weeks/months?

    Maybe at the beginning of March? When the eligibility period ends. Partly why I did this list (which I try to do every year on the TV side) is because of the craziness with the eligibility period this year and because otherwise I’d forget some perfomances that I want to have in contention haha.

    *Insert Michael Fassbender as Magneto asking for real films meme*

    Lovers Rock is iconique though. Fingers crossed McQueen wins his Emmy lol.

    Wolfali said to consider the 2020 US releases, so Bacurau counts.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!
