Updates: December 6th, 2013

This update is going to be slightly different than ones in the past. It will not only provide links to what’s been updated today but also discuss completed, ongoing, and upcoming posts.

Past and Present

Firstly, of course, the November list of the BAM Award Considerations is closed and the December list has opened up.

My films viewed list is almost up-to-date and nearly at 500 features.

The Contender for Favorite Older Films First Viewed in 2013 list gained only one title, but it’s an interesting one.

Two new titles added for Jury Award Consideration.

On My Radar a few titles added, but more crossed off.


Next, considering I wrote many pieces last year on the Foreign Language Film race at the Oscar (How the Foreign Language Film Submission Process Could Change and The Problem with Limiting Foreign Film Submissions – Part one and Two and The Oscars Should Change Its Best Foreign Language Film Processes most notably) I am returning with a five-part series that examines more nuanced, often overlooked issues with the process starting next Wednesday!

Also forthcoming is a look at some past BAM Best Picture Winners and well as old winners explications, nominees/winners lists and Best of the Year lists I didn’t yet post.

That’s all I can guarantee right now. However, I do intend to draft new Pages so keep your eyes on the menu bar and The Holiday Viewing Log should return next week too. Here’s last year’s.

The next update will be on the 15th. Short break but there’s lots going on towards the end of the year so I don’t want to push it off as I did this time.

Thanks for reading all!
