    OK, I've decided to test out the academy award voting to be used at the end of the second draft, by applying it to the first one. Here's the deal:

    1 - everyone at HTF is a member of the Academy, so anyone can vote.

    2 - I'll be providing a list of the films here. Later today when I have more time, I'll try to copy over the billings and synopses, but you can always go to the first draft to look at them there.

    3 - We'll be voting in the following categories:

    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Actor
    Best Actress
    Best Supporting Actor
    Best Supporting Actress
    Best Screenplay
    Best Score
    Best Cinematography

    4 - I'll be providing a list of eligible candidates for each category. Once I've done that, nominations will be open.

    5 - You can nominate up to 3 per category. You do this by sending me a private message. Do not post it here, and do not send me an email. You do not need to rank order your nominations, and you can have fewer than 3 (or even none) in any category. Just not more than 3 per category.

    6 - I'll tally the nominations and then provide the list for the actual voting, which will go the same as the nominating, although this time you have to cast only a single vote in each category.

    7 - I'll then open one winning envelope per day.

    I'll be back in a few minutes with the eligible candidates for each category.

    Synopsis:
    Clint Eastwood is cattle rancher Hank Dobbs, making a living in late 1800's Montana with his young Mexican wife Ophelia, played by Jennifer Lopez. Staying with them is Lucy (Diane Lane), Hank's daughter from his first marriage. Hank and Ophelia have no children, but they are raising Esteban, the son of Hank's wayward younger brother Lewis (Warren Oates). Lucy is unhappy with her station in life and longs for a life in Europe - a dream fostered by cheap romance novels. She also resents Ophelia and Esteban. One day Lewis shows up with a cache of gold he's stolen from the famous Mexican bandit Mad Carlos. Turns out that Lewis has been riding with Carlos and his gang for some time. Then Lewis discovered that he is seriously ill with only a short time to live. Faced with his own mortality and wracked with guilt over his abandonment of Esteban and the boy's now-dead mother, Lewis has made off with Carlos' gold, intending it for Esteban's future. Soon after Lewis' arrival, Carlos shows up looking for him. Hank is determined to return the gold to Carlos, in the hope of placating him, but the bandit wants more than the return of his loot - he wants Lewis' head on a platter! Hank is determined to not turn over his brother, but he is outnumbered by Carlos and his men. Then Ophelia shows that she is no timid housewife, an act that both fascinates and enrages Carlos. To add to the fray, a posse of Texas Rangers shows up looking for Carlos and company. These Rangers are led by the infamous Levi Jones (Sam Shepard), a lawman who doesn't particularly care if innocents get caught in the crossfire as long as he brings in his man! Meanwhile, Lucy has her own plans for the gold - she sees it as her ticket out of Montana and she is determined to get her way...

    Synopsis:
    Akira Kurosawa re-interprets Homer's Iliad, and brings a multi-cultural cast to bear on this epic tale of war among gods and mortals. David Mamet's screenplay is both intimate and sweeping, and focuses more intensely than does the source material on Helen of Troy (Gong Li) and her abductor, Paris (Tony Leung). We see the Trojan War unfold through their eyes. With Brad Pitt as Menelaus, Kristin Scott-Thomas as Aphrodite and Chow Yun-Fat as Patrocles.

    Genre: Epic

    Synopsis:
    This movie will give us a look at Superman from Lex Luthor's point of view. Bill Murray stars as Luthor, a sympathetic super-genius scientist who just can't win. His well meaning plots are constantly being ruined by that bumbling blowhard from another planet, Superman (played by Johnny Depp). Compounding Luthor's frustration is the fact that the press, led by some nobody reporter named Kent (also played by Depp), has unfairly labeled him a villain. The only person in Luthor's corner is his overprotective mother (played by Ruth Gordon). Also starring Marisa Tomei as Lois Lane, a reporter who finds herself in a romantic quadrangle with Luthor, Kent and Superman. Superman takes every chance to publicly humiliate Luthor, who can't understand why the public can't see that caped menace for the obnoxious egotistical jerk that he is. His frustration builds and builds until he cracks, hatching a revenge plot involving kryptonite and world domination.

    Synopsis:
    Suave, sophisticated Tomás and the vital but earthy Jean-Claude vie for the affections of the Contessa, who is attracted to each for very different reasons. Vanentina, a divorcée who has more than enough funds command either Tomás or Jean-Claude to do her bidding presents a serious challenge for whichever man Eva chooses. But the Contessa is not without her resources, as no man or woman is immune to her charms.

    Meanwhile, Pierrot, Tomás’ inept, clumsy manservant who silently observes the action helps bring about the satisfactory though surprising conclusion.

    If anyone who didn't provide a synopsis for their film would like to add one now, go ahead and post it, and I'll modify your entry accordingly.

    Just bumping this, hoping to get more votes. A few people have voted, but we've still got lots of multi-way ties that need more votes to be broken.
