The LAMB Oscars Uber-Event Type Thing

(Editor’s note to non-LAMBs: In celebration of the Oscars, the Large Association of Movie Blogs will be running a blog-a-thon of sorts, with a number of LAMBs writing a post on the field of a given category. This post serves as an announcement of the event to you, and also hammers out a number of details for the LAMBs. Thanks!)

Ok, the categories for the LAMB Oscars Uber-Event Type Thing (note: name needs work) have been decided. That is, most of them have been.

As I stated previously, there are 24 Academy Awards handed out. From my earlier emails on the subject, 17 (yay!) of you responded by saying you were up for random assigment and would be willing to contribute. A few of you (the first three) volunteered for some “non-major” awards, so I have given you those. For the remaining 15, I randomly grabbed 15 of the remaining awards and randomly applied them.

I’m not going to lie – there are going to be some challenging topics to cover, but I have faith in each and every one of you. Now, you might be asking “what about the other six awards?” Well, here’s where it gets tricky. First of all, here are the remaining six awards:

Best Animated Short Film
Best Documentary Feature
Best Live Action Short Film
Best Original Song
Best Picture
Best Sound Mixing

In case you didn’t notice, there happens to be a biggie in there (Original Song and Documentary aren’t that bad, either). So, here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to ask for volunteers to write about a second category. Assuming I get more than 6, I will have another random assignment, only this time, there are some people that won’t get a second. At the same time, if you already have a stinker, you might get a second, so there is a risk involved. But if you say yes and reneg, I will hound you until next year’s Oscars, so be warned. 😉 If you are up for volunteering, and the risk that goes with it, please justreply with a comment on this post, and I’ll go from there.

The nominations come out on Tuesday. I’d like to get posts emailed to me as soon as possible after that (hypocrisy alert: mine will probably get done later rather than sooner, but I do have an excuse) – from whom and in what order, I don’t care; I just can’t get them all 3 days before the ceremony. Ideally, I will run one a day up until the show. If you wish to run the post on your site as well, I surely can’t stop you, but please wait until after I have posted it here. If I could think of more rules and stipulations, I would list them, but I can’t. I’m sure this will run smoothly once the ball gets rolling.

Here’s the assignments:

Soundtrack Geek – Best Original Score
Insight into Entertainment – Best Animated Film
Ferdy on Films – Best Makeup
Reel Whore – Best Supporting Actor
Shea of the Dead – Best Costume Design
Doodad Kind of Town – Best Sound Editing
Boomstick Reviews – Best Art Direction
5th Row From the Screen – Best Adapted Screenplay
The Spoon – Best Actress
The Movie-Fanatic – Best Actor
Invasion of the B Movies – Best Visual Effects
Joe’s Movie Corner – Best Documentary Short Subject
Blog Cabins – Best Original Screenplay
Matte Havoc – Best Foreign Language Film
Watch It – Best Director
Crack of the Whip! – Best Supporting Actress
Movie Reviews (such as they are) – Best Film Editing
Counting Down the Hours – Best Cinematography

    Dude, Best Art Direction should be fun. I’d sign up for another one, but I’m not sure I’ll have the time. So I’ll just stick with this one. w00t ‘n’ stuff.

  2. I can take the Best Original Song as well. Should be fun!

  3. Daniel G. says:

    I’m not a LAMB blogger but I’m to the task if you still need content…

  4. Fletch says:

    @ Soundtrack Geek – I didn’t want to just assume you’d take that, but I’m glad to hear you say that. Consider it yours!

    @ Nick – no worries. I completely understand.

    @ Daniel G. – love the offer, and will almost definitely take you up on it. The bigger question – why aren’t you a LAMB yet?!?! 🙂

  5. Matt says:

    Sweet! Best actress! This should be interesting.

  6. Daniel G. says:

    I’ll get on it ASAP…

  7. Jess says:

    Fletch, I’m happy to take on another – though I’m not sure how to go about actually seeing the short films. I’ll investigate.

  8. Fletch, I could probably do shorts… but they’re not released here until shortly before the Oscars. Will that be ok?

  9. Fletch says:

    Don’t want you all to think I’m ignoring your offers; I appreciate them all and will take you all up on them in one form on another, but some things still need sorting out. I’ll update everyone shortly.

    In the meantime, Nayana, I can at least take you up on your offer, as you didn’t previously have a category. I’ll let you know which short type soon…

  10. WaywardJam says:

    Supporting Actor – this should be a fun one! If you need another volunteer let me know.

  11. Pat says:

    If you want to take Sound Mixing, I can do that – it’s an easy thing to add to to Sound Editing. If it’s OK, I might cover them in the same post.

    It’ll take me a few days to get the post done (maybe this weekend??? maybe) – I don’t know much about sound, but I’m doing some research and learning a lot of cool stuff!

  12. Pat says:

    I meant “if you want ME to take Sound Editing, I can do that.” Sorry, typing too fast!

  13. * (asterisk) says:

    Oops, I missed this. Got it now, though! Best Film Editing? Okay, I dig. Is that cos I’m a book editor, or was it really random?
