    The Academy Awards are coming on February 29th (www.oscar.com).

    But how about academy awards at Brickfilms.com? :)

    Possible categories for brick academy awards:

    Best Picture

    Best Director

    Best Actor (including actress)

    Best Actor in a supporting role

    Best Cinematography

    Best Cut

    Best Music

    Best Sound

    Best Visual Effects

    Best Animated Brickfilm (CGI movies)

    Best Dialogue

    Every brickfilmer would send his best brickfilm which he made during the last year.

    It’s yor choice.

    Sounds good I would be in!
    Its a good way to give movies the honour the deserve without entering a contest.
    we had to find a jury…

    I think there was a thread about this before…
    sorry im too lazy to find the link.

    sounds great!

    Someone could animate a short awards show,and have all the winning characters in it or something.I think that was done at the old site.

    Yeah i think it will be awesome to have a brickfilms oscars. It would be better than just an ordinary contest, cause it would have more categories. And the winner can get something like a Brickfilms.com official customized minifig for each category or something similar! We should have the brickfilms oscar annually!

    How about this category: Best Animation ;) Or Best First Film?

    I like the idea, but I don’t think that animators should have to submit their films. I think some kind of panel, or team could nominate the films. Didn’t we have something similar a year or two ago, The Plast Awards? That was before my time though, can anyone tell me about that?

    That sounds like a great idea. But like Mot said, people shouldn’t have submit their films, there should be a special panel of judges from Brickfilms, CBM, and other large brickfilming comunities. The films can be nominated and every one can find out if their film was nominated a month before the actual awards. Then there can be like a special ceremony where everyone gathers to find out the winners, like a live screening of a movie displaying the results. It might get abit complecated at times, but it is do-able and an excellent way for many communities to colaborate with one another. There doesn’t even have to be prizes other than the glory and maybe a small trophy or something.

    thats a good idea. Choosing any film that was submitted to brickfilms from a certain date to another date would be cool. That leaves alot to choose from.

    I was thinking of organizing an Oscar type of award show in the last few months of 2003, and I had some good ideas, I just never presented them. Something like this has to be done very carefully. Quite a few people will get pissed off, especially since, chances are, only a few select people will win all of the awards. The categories also have to be chosen carefully. Here’s what I think would work:

    Best animation
    Best (voice) acting
    Best effects
    Best cinematography
    Best sound
    Best director (or writer, whatever)
    Best picture

    See, here’s the problem: If Buxton were to win, say, best animation and best acting for OOT, chances are he would also win best director and best picture. You really need to think and create a solid plan before doing this. I’ll try to write down all of my ideas and present them here, though.

    Simply make the rule that a film is not allowed to be nominated in more than 1 category or is only allowed to win 1 category.

    Why just Brickfilms, why not all of the major brickfilming sites?

    I think the next step for this is for someone to present this to a RevMen and they can take it from there.
