    There’s more than one?

    :P

    I think the idea needs to be fleshed out a bit more before anyone presents it to Josh. Let’s at least wait for his input in this thread.

    I think it’s not an altogether crumby idea, but honestly I’m not excited about being involved in its organization. I propose that an academy is organized somehow, one that is independent from the Brickfilms site. If there’s enough support for the academy and how it chooses to present some awards, I’ll be happy to post results and proceedings and such here at the site, and give my support to whatever decisions the academy makes.

    Alltogether it sounds like a cool idea,
    but how could we give an actor (Legofigs) an Oscar?

    OK, lets form a comittee (5-11 members, preferably and odd amount, so for voting there can’t be a tie) and they’ll punch out the details from there. :D

    I was thinking about that as a joke, but this is definitely a cool idea… Hard to do but cool.

    I like Josh’s idea of a “3rd party” jury, independant of brickfilmers or including brickfilmers that didn’t release movies the latest year.
    Why not include Karin Wien, Jason Rowoldt, Seth Rothkin, Thomas Foote, Esmeralda, Jay Silver, Nate “Bluntman” Burr, etc ?

    There should be nominations, and the award could be “broadcast” on the chat, like we did for the previous contests…

    An event like this gives the unique opportunity to award movies that were particularly good but not highlighted by a brickfilms contest.

    Some questions to end :

    – Could be nominated movies that were done for a contest ? (my answer would be yes).
    – How many members for the jury ? (i think 8 is nice)
    – Shall we wear all tuxedos ? :lol: (sure we shall)
    – Is the president of the USA choosing the winners in secret ? :lol: :lol:
    – What is the best date ? (in order to have max people in the chat)
    – How many movies can be nominated in each category ? (6 no ?)
    – How many categories ? (see CG’s thread)
    – Can a movie be nominated in several categories ? (to me, yes)
    – Are there minimum requirements ? (like length, story or else, I know it’s a weird question…)
    – Can Fart Competition be presented out of the contest ?
    – Is the award virtual or shall we hire a foundry to create the trophies ?
    – Could some countries be boycotted like Iraq, France, Germany, Canada or else ?
    – Could we pay in order to illegally have an award ? Could we use Paypal ? :wink
    – Are we allowed to sleep with actresses in order to increase our chances ? Or producers at least ? :lol:

    to answer those questions Loweek we would have to have a jury or group of people who make all the decissions, make the rules, nominate the movies, organise the awards, organise the ceremonies, ect. I like what you said about having Karin Wien, Jason Rowoldt, Seth Rothkin, Thomas Foote, Esmeralda, Jay Silver, Nate “Bluntman” Burr as the group of people who make the decissions, because they all have huge resources in this hobby, but they have to want to do this, because it seems like alot of work and they may not have the time.

    Maybe the best would be a jury of non-brickfilmers,
    who don’t know anybody.
    That it would be detached.

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned the 2002 Plast Awards- maybe not a perfect example, but a precedent none the less.

    I think its a great idea but you have to be careful about who is on the “committee”, if that person created a movie during the year – a good possibility since the people are chosen for their influence/activity – then they would find it difficult to be objective.

    This kind of stuff is tricky – As Josh said, it should be independent of Brickfilms, so what do you do..invite a couple of key people from the top 3 film sites to be on the panel? Then what if your the admin of the 4’th site, wouldn’t you be unhappy about not being represented?

    Are you thinking of the panel judging the winners or some kind of “peoples choice” award kind of thing?
