GoonersWorld Academcy Award Best Film League

GoonersWorld Academcy Award Best Film League

Postby Angelito » Tue Feb 21, 2017 2:32 pm

Okie guys, so here we have it. We'll pick the best runner-up movie for the Best Film category at the Oscars. Movies from 2001 until 2016. The winners are automatically excluded for another category, which will follow this. This is just about the best movie not to have won the Oscars (Best Film) amongst the nominated ones.

For this competition, there will be 24 groups randomly generated. Groups 1 until 20 feature 4 movies each; Groups 21 up to 24 include 3 movies each. For the groups with 4 movies (1 until 20), please select 2 movies as your vote to progress to the next round. In groups with 3 movies (21-24), please select 1 movie from each group as your nomination.

So, here are the rules in brief:

- 2 movies advance to the next round from Group 1 until 20;
- 1 movie advances to the next round from Group 21 until 24;
- If you haven't watched a movie, pick among those you've watched, or if not any - you could ignore that group and move to the next group;
- 44 movies will qualify for the next round - the knock-out rounds.
