OscarGuy wrote:We would want to announce prior to the Oscars/Oscar Nominations so as not to encourage people to vote one way or another, but perhaps certain rules would be a given:
:: A studio must take out a trade ad touting the film for a Best Picture nomination among others.
:: The film must have won a precursor award of some kind in one of the big six categories
:: The film must be directed by, produced by or written by a former Oscar winner (I exclude acting mainly because we'd get Halle Berry Catwoman mentions that way).
Or, we could just have a committee that determines which films are eligible based on submissions?
Seems too narrow, but we have nine months to discuss and refine. In the meantime, what about a retroactive list working from 2009 backwards?
