Here are the rules:

1. For each category, you are given 2 + votes and 2 - votes per day. You vote up for the candidates that you like the most, and you downvote the candidates you like the least.

2. Only the Major categories will be covered for the time being: Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay, Foreign Language Film, Documentary Feature, Animated Feature, and Film Editing (the latter simply because it has become an essential category for a film to win Best Picture); more categories will be welcomed by request, but only after a winner in a particular category is declared.

3. Once only one film is left standing in a particular category, the category will be retired with the winner announced. Once the Academy Awards ceremony concludes, the game is over regardless of whether or not it's still standing.

So with that said, here are the candidates:

And I have officially closed the book on Silver Linings Playbook. And until I officially see either movie for myself, I will not vote for or against Frankenweenie or Zero Dark Thirty save for the Best Actress category (simply because Chastain's the only contender I have any liking for). The rest of my voting will follow the predictable path as follows:

Life of Pi
Les Miserable
Lincoln
