|Wait...what the FUCK? Not a single nomination?|
So, I'm finally ready to post my personal ballots for the 1981 Fisti Awards. You can find them here. This was a really rewarding year for me. Going in, I had already seen the Oscar nominees (at least in Best Picture) and was impressed, if not a tad underwhelmed. I actually really like the year's Oscar winner despite the fact that it is not mentioned ANYWHERE on my ballots. That wasn't intentional at all, but this year was just so rich. It was like every film I saw was better than the last. My acting winners are some of my favorite ever, especially in the Lead categories. This is also the second confirmed Musical win in the Best Picture category! The previous winner was Les Girls, from 1957. Have a gander. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
