1946 Nominations [deadline Oct 23rd]

#1

Post by brokenface » October 4th, 2018, 7:44 pm

NOTE - The Spiral Staircase is INELIGIBLE, as it was previously listed as a 1945 film on IMDB and made the ballot when we did that year.

--

Intro
For anyone new to this, the aim is to re-run the Oscars for each year but with the benefit of our much better taste & hindsight. Copy and paste the template from the spoiler and fill in your choices for as many (or as few) of the categories as you want. Everyone's points get tallied and the shortlisted nominees will be announced after the deadline, and we run a poll to decide the winners from the shortlist.

Rules
-please use the template (copy & paste from spoiler below)
-only films listed as being released in 1946 on IMDB are eligible
-please state which film you are nominating director/actor/actress for

Notes/FAQs
-Best Film category is open to any type of film/short/documentary/miniseries
-Best Music is not limited to original scores
-If actors/actresses end up getting nominations in both support & lead, the points will be combined in whichever category obtained the most points [i.e. they may end up in a different category to the one you select but your points will always be counted either way]. In the rare case it is an exact split, I exercise my own flawless judgement :folded:

Just checking -- I assume that The Spiral Staircase is not eligible this round? It used to be listed as a 1945 film and it made the Best Picture lineup for that year.

Good spot! Yeah we'll exclude that as it was in the 1945 list

Hi Caracortada, FYI this one's being excluded from the poll because it previously featured on the 1945 edition (IMDB year has changed in the meantime).

None of the shorts I've seen from that year particularly struck me, so I didn't feel like nominating them.

Argh, I really wanted to watch this one before the deadline but didn't think I had time and submitted yesterday. I've found the few earlier, less well-known Kurosawa's I've seen to be interesting.

Yeah from what I've seen AK's early (let's say pre-1949) work remains somewhat underrated - if anything of his can be called underrated. I haven't seen everything but I've liked all the ones I have seen, this one probably the most thanks in no small part to Hara's typically incredible performance.

Not a strong year for shorts for me. Too muddled to be able to distinguish between a lot of the acting these films; they all kind of blend into each other in my mind, so leaving those blank.

I think it's a decent enough year for shorts, though not necessarily as good as many other years from the era. I'm with you on acting as a general rule - one of the reasons I've only contributed to these threads a few times is that I often can't remember enough performances to feel like I'm making honest and informed picks. This year happens to be an exception but even here there are a couple of shaky choices in the 4-5 slots probably, and several really good films like the two famous Italian ones that I just don't remember well enough to want to vote for.

I know what you are saying about remembering performances -- supporting actresses have been the toughest in the few I've participated in. Actually, cinematography and especially music have been maybe more difficult, but I've decided to try to recall (and review occasionally if I have the films on hand) and have had some fun doing these lists.

To help my memory I listen to fragments of the soundtracks on Youtube. I also keep a list of favorite film songs by year. For acting performances Google images can help to remember who played which part. Nowadays I take more notice of the supporting actors than I used to. You often see the same character actors in different films; e.g. Hume Cronyn in "Shadow of a Doubt" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice", always in a kind of nerdy role.

Ah, good ideas -- thanks. Yeah, sometimes certain supporting performances will stick in my head. For some reason, both of the lawyers in "Postman Always Rings Twice" (Leon Ames and Hume Cronyn) were like this.
