The Blanches are here! The Blanches are here!

I've been tapped by the Maestro himself, Lorne the LShaperoo, to help out with the fussy details of the Blanches so he can focus on the creative side. I'm happy to oblige!

So here are the categories for this year's Blanches. We need volunteers to handle each of these categories for counting purposes.

Best Supporting Actress
Best Supporting Actor
Best Original Screenplay
Best Adapted Screenplay
Best Song
Best Editing
Best Cinematography
Best Documentary
Best Foreign Film
Best Actor
Best Actress
Best Director
Best Picture

On your mark ... get set ... GO!!!!!

I'll do Best Actor, Melly Mel. I think this year will be a LOT better than last and I'll be around a lot more.

Great poster, lorne!!!

Blanche Nominations & Voting Schedule

Time is of the essence this year, folks. You have one more weekend to see those films you've been putting off seeing. You have the remainder of this week to plead, cajole, bribe and otherwise coerce your fellow Third Eyers into nominating YOUR choice for all categories.

Nominate 3 (three) (III) per category. Post your nominations right here in this Blanche forum.

February 1-6: Nominations taken in this Blanche forum for Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplays, Song, Editing and Cinematography.

February 7-12: Nominations taken in this Blanche forum for Documentary, Foreign, Actor, Actress, Director and Picture.

February 13: Tabulators, send me your top 5 (five) (V) finalists for your category via PM or email: dee_lightfuldee@yahoo.com

February 15-19: Final Voting for Blanches. I will post the top 5 (five) (V) nominees in each category. You will vote for 1 (one) (I) in each category. DO NOT post your final vote here. Send your final vote via PM or email to the tabulator for that category.

February 20: Tabulators, send your Blanche awardee to Lorne via PM or email: Lshap@videotron.ca

March 6: 11th Annual Blanche Awards! (time TBA)

Don't worry, I'll remind you as we go about what to send, when & where.

Ooooh... no chance to see movies this week or weekend. Maybe before the voting!

A couple of FYC's that may escape attention:

Yes, Jeremy Renner and Michael Stuhlbarg as male actors. But forget not Anthony Mackie and Fred Melamed as Supporting Male Actors let us!

I can do Best Picture. How many nominations? Are we talking more this year to echo the Oscars (Rascos)?

I'll do best actress. God, I've got to do something since I won't be able to vote in too many categories.

I'll take cinematography. If we're short of volunteers, I'll double up on editing.

I was thinking the same thing. And I'll double up too if necessary. But I'd like to give it a day or two or three, to see if any more step up to the plate.
