1. I'm only choosing Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Let's be honest and say that these are the only three categories most people care about.
2. I'm only choosing from the movies reviewed in my "Some Other Movies From..." entries. This means that some of the movies I choose might actually be award-winners from that year.
3. The movies reviewed in my "Some Other Movies From..." entries were chosen because I hadn't seen them before, and/or because of their relative obscurity. To put an even finer point on it, they were chosen half willfully and half randomly. I tend to pick 7 or 8 movies featuring people I'm familiar with, and 7 or 8 movies featuring people unknown to me.
4. For fun I'm adding another category, something memorable from a film belonging to a given year.
