That’s right! They are back again! The nominations for the Academy Awards have been announced, which means there are alot of snubs people are talking about. So it’s time to honor those people and movies that were snubbed, with the SNUBBEE Awards.
Here is how it will work:
1.Each participant will need to send me a ballot via DM.
2.There will be 7 categories. You do not have to vote for every category. You can choose what categories you would like to vote in. HOWEVER, for every category that you DO vote in, you must have 3 nominees listed. Anymore, or anyless, and that category will be voided on your ballot.
3.Place the nominees in order of your preference. #1 being the best, to #3 being the least. Contenders placed in #1 will get 3 points, #2 will get 2 points, #3 will get 1 point.
4.Each category will have 5 nominees, including Best Picture, unless there is a tie in the voting, in which a category will have 6 or 7 nominees depending on the amount of ties.
5.ALL BALLOTS ARE DUE TO ME VIA DM BY SUNDAY FEBRUARY 10, 2013 AT 11:59 pm. Any ballots received after this date and time will not be counted.
6.After sending me your ballot, be sure to check this thread, as I will post in this thread if there was a problem opening your ballot. Once I count the points on your ballot, I will message you back with confirmation that your votes have been counted.
Here are the categories in which I will be accepeting nominees:
Best Snubbed Picture
Best Snubbed Actor
Best Snubbed Actress
Best Snubbed Supporting Actor
Best Snubbed Supporting Actress
Best Snubbed Director
Films eligible for the Golden SNUBBEE are films that did not receive a single nomination for the Academy Awards! The films that did receive nominations for the Academy Awards are listed below:
Beasts of the Southern Wild
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Keep those ballots coming! I’ve only received 4 so far!January 23, 2013 at 10:10 am #88368
I still have some movies to see before sending in a ballot. “Compliance” and “The Paperboy” I have at home from Netflix. Still have to make the 45 minute drive out to see “Amour” but will soon. Maybe it will move closer to me this weekend.January 23, 2013 at 2:06 pm #88369
Ok, pardon these questions, but if we can only pick three nominees, why are there five for each category? You mean, the top three vote-getters and you add the two most voted after that?
And, what do you mean by, these films not receiving a single nomination with Oscar? Pardon?
Thanks.January 23, 2013 at 2:10 pm #88370
Ok, Never mind. I think I get it now Lol. Sorry.January 23, 2013 at 11:54 pm #88371

We can send three nominations only? Too less!January 24, 2013 at 10:26 am #88373
When the voting period is over, the films/actors/directors that have the 5 highest amount of points will receive nominations. That is why it is important to list your votes in preferential order when sending me your ballot.
And any film that did not receive an Oscar nomination AT ALL (in acting, Best Picture, Sound, Directing, Editing, Music, etc.) is eligible for the Golden Snubbee. Examples of these eligibile films are Rust and Bone, The Deep Blue Sea, Magic Mike, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Dark Knight Rises, etc.January 24, 2013 at 2:16 pm #88374
I have voted in these before and yet I am having some difficulty remembering the rules.
I get that the nominees for best picture must not have been nominated for anything at the Oscars.
What I wanted to know is if the actors/directors also have to come from completely unnominated films? When I think of snubbed actors and directors I am thinking of people like Kathryn Bigelow, Leonardo DiCaprio, John Hawkes, etc. Are these people eligible?
Also, if a person is nominated in one category can they be considered snubbed in a different category? Quentin Tarantino was snubbed in directing but is a screenplay nominee. Is he eligible in director? Anne Hathaway was nominated for “Les Miserables” so is she eligible for “The Dark Knight Returns”?January 24, 2013 at 3:01 pm #88375
Well I take it to mean that, since TDK wasnt nominated for any Oscar, that Anne would be eligible for that film.
Actually I almost gagged with my choices until I double-checked to see if it did indeed receive a makeup nomination. That. would have changed my entire ballot, which would have seemed pretty unfair.
Thanks Smartone.January 25, 2013 at 2:04 am #88376
Cloud Atlas, anyone?January 25, 2013 at 12:44 pm #88377
