This is gonna be tough to pull off - attempting to decide BZPower's favorite video game character and BZPower's favorite movies on the same blog.
I'll make do.
With the announcement of the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards, I figured, why not? We'll make some of our own!
(If you'd like to help the Voltex Association with designing a trophy, please do so).
This is going to be voted on entirely by you guys (and me because I am one of you) - so here's the deal. First, we need nominations for the nominations! Which means that, for each category, you can submit one option - and don't worry about multi-nominations; if Tom Hanks is selected for his role in Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks, that is totally okay. If someone has already nominated your choice, just note that you are repeating the suggestion.
Now we move onto the categories that you can vote for.
Best Film (for simplicity's sake, consider foreign language films acceptable here, as well as documentaries)
Best Animated Film
Best Short Film (animated or live-action)
Best Actor 
Best Actress
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress
Best Director
Best Soundtrack/Score
Best Original Song
Best Writing (adapted or original)
Also, before you get mad at anybody who votes... remember that the chances of everyone seeing every film are 0.
I suppose I'll vote eventually. My choices are probably going to be picked fairly quickly regardless.

...There's a Legend of Korra movie? I would have thought I'd have heard of that, even if I've not watched the show. I really do live under a rock, I guess.

^ There is no Legend of Korra movie. So no, you don't live under a rock. Unless you actually do, in which case I can't help you.


Anyway, I can count on less than one hand the number of great films I've seen this year, so from my incredibly limited perspective:


Best Film: 12 Years a Slave

Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave)

Best Song: "Let It Go" (Frozen)

    • 0
Best Film: Catching Fire
Best Animated Film: Frozen
Best Short Film: The Blue Umbrella (Pixar)
Best Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness)
Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence (Catching Fire)
Best Supporting Actor--------
Best Supporting Actress---------
Best Director---------
Best Soundtrack/Score---------
Best Original Song: repeating V1P2 with "Let It Go" (Frozen)
Best Writing--------

I have a very limited selection of movies this year as well, unfortunately. Thus I have no opinion on a few categories.

Oh, so Only Movie based stuff is eligible? My mistake... See. This is what happens when you don't pay attention to anything that's happening in the world people.

You know, I'm pretty sure I've only seen one movie this year that actually came out this year (Sad, amirite?), and that's Catching Fire. But I wub Jennifer Lawrence, so I'd probably put her and Catching Fire down for everything anyway. :3


Best film: Repeating Catching Fire

Best actor: Josh Hutcherson

Best actress: Repeating Jennifer Lawrence (Catching Fire)

Best supporting actor:-- Philip Seymour Hoffman

Best supporting actress:-- Jena Malone

Best soundtrack/Score:-- Catching Fire

Best writing:-- Catching Fire


...Yeah. ._.


*Cue everyone trying to figure out who the heck Philip Seymour Hoffman is*
