    Oh, and I just bumped my total up to 103 with Femme Fatal and I Spy last night. Neither impressed me all that much, but both are fun at the rental quality level. I'm sure changing my total to 103 wouldn't have any effect at all. [​IMG]
    Dana, excellent work on all of this and on the upcoming project ahead of time. [​IMG]
    I'll probably skip the chat because the Hi Def set isn't near the CPU. Maybe if I get bored with the HD telecast (which seems unlikely [​IMG] ).

    With more time in reflection, I moved Irreversible into my top 10 and bumped TTT out.

    Did some major rearranging, with Punch-Drunk Love taking over the top spot, and 25th Hour leap frogging up two spots. I moved Potter down 3 spots, and Igby Goes Down up 2. I also saw Moonlight Mile, a fantastic movie that's just a hair short of bumping Y Tu Mama Tambien.

    So my revised list is like this:

    2002 Top 10 List

    1. Punch-Drunk Love
    2. 25th Hour
    3. Minority Report
    4. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    5. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
    6. Gangs of New York
    7. Igby Goes Down
    8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
    9. Catch Me If You Can
    10. Y Tu Mama Tambien

    Sweet Home Alabama just made my 10 worst films list at #10. Nothing like a terrible script being "acted" in some sort of reading-it-for-the-first-time method.

    Okay... I had some free time, so I opted to enter all the HTF award nominations into a spreadsheet and see what the results were. Votes were scored 5-4-3-2-1 except the categories which explicitly specified three entries, which were scored 3-2-1. Categories without a full complement of entries were used, and just counted at the high end (i.e., 5-4-3). If Dana anybody would like, I'll email the Excel sheet or post the "all entries" version.
    And here the results are, as of 28 March 2003:
    Best Director: Roman Polanski (The Pianist)
    Runners-up: Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), Martin Scorsese (Gangs of New York), Pedro Almodovar (Talk To Her), Paul Thomas Anderson (Punch-Drunk Love)
    Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis (Gangs Of New York)
    Runners-up: Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Nicolas Cage (Adaptation), Michael Caine (The Quiet American), Jack Nicholson (About Schmidt)
    Best Actress: Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven)
    Runners-up: Nicole Kidman (The Hours), Diane Lane (Unfaithful), Meryl Streep (The Hours), Cate Blanchett (Heaven)
    Note: All actresses from The Hours got nominations for both "Best Actress" and "Best Supporting Actress"
    Best Supporting Actor: Chris Cooper (Adaptation)
    Runners-up: Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), Ed Harris (The Hours), John C. Reilley (Chicago), Christopher Walken (Catch Me If You Can), Dennis Quaid (Far From Heaven), Alfred Molina (Frida)
    Comments: First, I think we need a seperate category for "collaborative performances" like Gollum; maybe next year. Also note that Reilley received votes for The Good Girl, and Molina received votes (well, okay, one, from me) as a lead.
    Best Supporting Actress: Meryl Streep (Adaptation)
    Runners-up: Samantha Morton (Minority Report), Kathy Bates (About Schmidt), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago), Julianne Moore (The Hours)
    Comments: Streep, Moore, and Zeta-Jones(!) all received votes as leads in these parts; Steep also received a "best supporting" vote for The Hours
    Breakthrough Performance: Maggie Gyllenhaal (Secretary)
    Runners-up: Adam Sandler (Punch-Drunk Love), Ryan Gosling (The Believer), Sam Rockwell (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind), Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Evelyn Sampi (Rabbit-Proof Fence), Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher)
    Best Animated Feature: Spirited Away
    Runners-up: Metropolis, Lilo and Stitch
    Best Foreign-Language Film: Spirited Away
    Runners-up: Y Tu Mama Tambien, Talk To Her, City Of God, Sex And Lucia
    Comment: Just imagine how well City Of God will do next year when more people feel it's eligible.
    Best Documentary: Standing in the Shadows of Motown
    Runner-up: Bowling For Columbine
    Comment: Not an official category, and no other entry came particularly close.
    Best Art Direction: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Gangs Of New York, Far From Heaven, Road To Perdition, Frida
    Best Costume Design: Gangs Of New York
    Runners-up: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Chicago, Frida, Road To Perdition, Far From Heaven, The Cat's Meow
    Comments: Close between GONY and LOTR, then a drop to Chicago, then another drop
    Best Cinematography: Road To Perdition
    Runners-up: Far From Heaven, Gangs Of New York, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Minority Report
    Best Editing: The Hours
    Runners-up: Chicago, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Gangs Of New York, Adaptation
    Best Make-up: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Frida, The Hours, Gangs Of New York, Chicago
    Comment: LOTR absolutely crushes its competition (60 pts vs. 24 for Frida)
    Best Music Score: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Punch-Drunk Love, Catch Me If You Can, The Hours, Far From Heaven
    Best Song: "The Hands that Built America" (Gangs of New York)
    Runners-up: "Lose Yourself" (8 Mile), "Gollum's Song" (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), "I Move On" (Chicago), "8 Mile" (8 Mile), "Always With Me" (Spirited Away)
    Comments: Even if Bill Harris's "8 Mile - Eminem" meant "Lose Yourself", U2 still takes the category. A lot of partial entries, too.
    Best Screenplay, Adapted: Adaptation
    Runners-up: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Hours, Chicago, The Pianist
    Best Screenplay, Original: Punch-Drunk Love
    Runners-up: Adaptation, Talk To Her, Far From Heaven, Spirited Away
    Comment: There were disagreements about whether Adaptation or Gangs Of New York were original or not, though this hurt Gangs more than Adaptation
    Best Sound: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Minority Report, Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones, Punch-Drunk Love, Gangs Of New York
    Comment: LOTR 49 points, MR 28.
    Best Sound Effects Editing: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Minority Report, Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones, Punch-Drunk Love
    Comment: Another LOTR blowout; it scored over twice as many points as MR.
    Best Visual Effects: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Runners-up: Minority Report, Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones
    Comments: 66 pts for LOTR, 51 for MR, 24 for AOTC, and various others with a vote or two. I would have expected it to be a bit closer, and I'll leave it at that for now.
