    Would it be okay to kick things off at 1pm ET and not 12pm ET? I have to pick up my wife from work at 5pm UK time (12pm ET) and won't be able to get online at that time.... I really don't want to miss the start of the nomination process.

    Definitely, I haven't even started preparing anything. You've got time. Would you be willing to use the Google Form like last time and I'll update the thread post, for nominations and seconds?

    Sweet. Also, as I'm working out the tournament structure I'm thinking we should go with 256 nominations (as we did for Best Scene) as opposed to 200 we did previously for Best Comedy. The poll structure worked better with that number, I think:

    256:
    • Round 1: 32 groups of 8 titles - top 6 move on
    • Round 2: 32 groups of 6 titles - top 4 move on
    • Round 3: 32 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 4: 16 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 5: 16 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Octofinals: 8 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Quarterfinals: 4 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Semifinals: 2 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Final: 1 group of 2 titles - top 1 is the winner

    200
    • Round 1: 20 groups of 10 titles - top 6 move on
    • Round 2: 15 groups of 8 titles - top 4 move on
    • Round 3: 12 groups of 5 titles - top 2 move on
    • Octofinals: 8 groups of 3 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Quarterfinals: 4 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Semifinals: 2 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Finals: 1 group of 2 titles - top 1 is the winner

    256 nominations would definitely be more fun.

    The 90's certainly have enough contenders to fill that number very easily; so with only 200 nominations, a lot of good films would be left out.

    I agree, and once we go back to the older decades (especially the 1920s and '30s) then we can play with 200 or less).

    Wild card entries of one nomination per member at the end, like last time?

    No doubt the 256 will be filled and then we'll all remember a favourite we forgot to nominate.... That always happens.

    Yeah I don't see why not, we'll see if we need it when we come to the end of the nomination process.

    You know this tournament and the others like it are great and lots of fun. You folks should also take a moment to realize that the only reason you can have these wonderful tournaments is because this site is here, running and available to everyone. So maybe, if it is within your means, take a moment to show your appreciation and help out with the substantial costs associated with keeping the site up and running for all to enjoy and make a donation to help out. If everyone contributed the equivilant of .50 cents a week, a mere $25 for the entire year, the site fees would be paid in full. Just a thought for all to consider.

    Bill, can you post this on the tournament's main page? I think that should be enough to get the message across and it saves you the trouble of having to post it on every page.

    Thank you.

    Is there going to be a limit to the number of nominations and seconds a member can have this year?

    I don't think so, I don't recall us having a hard limit, but maybe I'm forgetting. As long as we keep to the set restrictions, everyone who wants to participate should get plenty of nominations in, and the process won't be done quickly, I think it will take a few days.

    Another way to think about it is that events like these add value to the site in of themselves. It's a lot of work and time spent putting on a tournament and the membership gets to participate and have a lot of fun.

    I think we originally wanted to do that and then either relaxed it as we went on. I know when I was looking at the Google Sheet for last year, there was a page where we kept track of members nominations and seconds. I don't think it's necessary.

Second, the argument could be made that the 90s were the last great decade for original films. I'm not saying there aren't great original films now, but I don't think we will ever see the amount of great, and more importantly, mainstream, films like we did in the 90s.
    Now, this may be a bit too personal and #TMI so I apologize in advance, but speaking about growing up in the '80s and '90s, we're around the same age, and I too realized just how much these '90s movies shaped me as a person now. Looking back at the various titles on these lists I compiled I'm surprised at how long it took me to work out my identity finally only a year or two ago. I remember watching The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love when I was 15 or 16, and it had such an impact on me back then as a teenage boy. But not in a way a regular teenage boy would typically react to two cute girls kissing and making love (awkwardly). I was so happy for them and experiencing all these feelings they were too, and, looking back, it was because I wanted to be one of them and have that experience myself. And now that I've realized that being transgender is possible and apparently I was this way all along, a lot of things from back then make more sense.

    Admittedly, that movie is not the greatest, but I'll probably nominate it anyway for sentimental reasons.
    Thank you for sharing, Mae! I'm so happy that things are working out for you. Happiness in all of our lives should be our main priority.
