    For Me, I would create the awards for Best Cast Ensemble (Awarded to the casting director) & Best Choreography

    Most casting is really done by directors. The casting directors just sign them. And very few films have original choreography so that would be such a limited category. Love the movie poster idea, but they’d never gor for that.

    I think they should have a voice-over performance category for animated films and documentaries.

    No new ones, eliminate song (make an honorary award if merited), combine sound back into one category

    I think Stunt Coordination.
    I also dont know the difference between Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.
    About Song… well, i think the Music Branch is really trying to eliminated this category. I am quite sure that only one song got the grade and they nominated the second who has more votes…
    i dont think it is a great idea removing best song.

    I think they should have more best foreign language film nominees (maybe 10). And they should have more special/honorary awards, for example – a special award for the most profitable film and star, most profilic auteur, favorite stars and directors, special achievments, best marketing … instead of giving them in the official categories. That way Oscar for the best performances would really go to actors who deleiver the most exceptional performances, not to the old ones who never won or popular ones,promising ones…

    I second a category for voice acting (I’m not sure if animation and documentaries should be together, though).  I like the idea of stunts/stunt coordination as well.  I used to be a strong proponent of a Best Song category, but in recent years the category has been a joke.  If they can only come up with 2 nominees, the time has come to drop the category- best songs can be rewarded in Grammies and other music awards.

    I have never been in favor of dropping Original Song, but this year is making me rethink this. Part of the problem with the category is what is nominated, but it is just embarrasing this year.

    I would create a Best Song category seeing the Music Branch currently doesnt want to have one.

    One funny thing… they changed the nominees for best make up.
    I mean the people from Harry Potter is now different. They put there “Yolanda Toussining” now they have another.
