And so many voters, so cool
The two Norway lists are close together in the results, the two Danish lists less so… and then “a” Danish list even makes top10, what does that mean?!?
Like the love for festival awards, even San Sebastian!!
Hopefully either Fantasporto or Sitges also get picked for officaldom, they are another flavor, and doing relatively well here
Some people might like the idea of a Danish list, but might not be satisfied with the lists currently available.
Yeah, this was my issue with it. The Danish lists were either too old, or didn’t include many of the touchstones I would expect to see from a Danish list.
But the preference for DFI seems also clear, so that is a tough nut to crack for the mods the subtleties of the reasons behind each vote gets lost in a wisdom of the crowd poll like this… but that should also mean that DFI is kinda allright, shouldn’t it?
The top 10 placement for the other entry just indicates then that there is a real demand for a Danish list, with the Norwegian… less so…
If the DFI list were updated, I think it would easily be the best candidate. Hopefully they will update it, as I think Danish cinema has really come a long way in the past 20-odd years…
Norwegian cinema as well, although I think it really seems to have gained a greater presence in the past decade or so, so the list from 2011 seems to have captured things on the cusp of a surge in internationally respected films.
I’d personally like to see them wait on these two countries until a really good list pops up (or even a wider ‘nordic’ list), and focus on a lot of the other lists highlighted by the poll.
Sorry to say, but the Best Docu Academy Award list looks EXTREMELY poor. I can name at least two docus which surpass 3/4s of this disastrous list! It’ll be another travesty if it’s to be adopted.
And what’s wrong with older films? Can we really expect that any Danish list won’t be voted, unless stupid Vinterberg’s films exist, just to please the Euro-fanboys?
Not that shocked that most award lists ended up so high (though that National Board of Review “fever” looks ridiculous / is film buff majorities lusting for top 10s the new trend???), but it’s a damn shame critics’ and scholars’ films weren’t accepted or hardly reached a top 20, apart from a so-called “strange” list, which doesn’t surprise me as well: most cine-fans HOPE for weird shit in their menu, boredom alert.
When will the lists become official?
Some will become official over the coming couple of years, some will not. We have started discussing the results and made a few initial decisions, but there will be more discussion about them and more adoptions as time goes on.
half a year has already gone, so… I guess you weren’t lying…
We’re actually finally getting close to some adoptions. I think things should be smoother going forward, though it does depend on multiple people, but I’m more optimistic than I’ve been for a while.
