Dan,

Thanks for making this thread.

I would like to officially request taking the following poll:
Oscars 2019 — Best Motion Picture

I will, however, refrain from making that discussion thread until the nominations have been announced. 

If it counts as a minor poll, I would also like to request:
Oscars 2019 — Best Visual Effects

Actually, Sonu claimed it three days before you on the Polls for the 2019 Academy Awards thread. The issue is neither of you followed the instructions to "Please refrain from suggesting polls for any of the 2019 Oscar categories until the nominations are announced." at 8:30 AM PST on 22 January 2019. Hence, the confusion and duplicate poll suggestions in a number of categories. To be fair, both of you weren't the only ones who jumped the gun.

The nominations will be announced on Tuesday, 22 January, 2019, at which time a discussion thread with more information will be posted.
For me (and I think for most of the poll board members) Dan's message on Tuesday 22 January (the exact hour was never mentioned) triggered the opening of the Oscar polls, after which I as well as all the others including yourself reserved their polls. By 8:30 AM PST on that day, all major categories were already taken.

I'd like to make the poll for Best Supporting Actress and, if it's considered to be minor, Best Documentary Feature (if it's not, I'll do Best Documentary Short). Regardless of whether it's minor or not, if someone wants "Best Documentary," just let me know and I'll do the short doc. 

I'd like to suggest allowing a newer authors, or especially an author whose polls haven't racked up a lot of votes, to do "Best Lead Actress," since it hasn't been taken yet. I was hoping we could put a few of the big awards aside for such authors but we could at least keep Lead Actress open. 'Just a suggestion for those who agree.

I don't know what Dan intends with major and minor, but I guess major would include at least Best Picture, Director, Actor/Actress, Screenplay x 2 (=Big Five) and probably Supporting Actor/Actress (ie. the first 8 categories that Dan lists).

Oh, sorry, Eagles; I didn't see that you chose Best Actress. I think when I started my post, you hadn't posted yet but it took me so long to finish my post because my cat kept jumping on my laptop, lol, that by the time that I actually submitted my post, you had posted your choices. I'm glad you're doing Best Actress. I was hoping someone besides those of us old-timers with a gazillion polls and votes, lol, would get the chance to do one of the really big categories.

I would suggest linking from polls to this thread so voters can find more Oscar polls.

I would also suggest linking to the show page to let polls appear on that page: [link=tt9168816]

Dan, please correct the reference to the "2019 Golden Globes Award" in your suggested question to the Oscars; I'd prefer "91st Oscars" or using the above link.

Please also remove this part, which is not relevant:

This should say "Academy Award" if it refers to a single award. Most contributors have used the plural form "Academy Awards", which is also acceptable when referring to the ceremony.

Last year urbanemovies made a list with all the Oscar 2018 related polls.
See here: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls021216429/

Maybe it's better to linking to a list then to a thread...? I believe it's better.
I can make a list if you want...

And maybe it's good to make a format for linking to the Oscars 2019 list and to the Oscar Show page. So we don't have to think about a line and everybody can use the same format.

Dan, Here are two possible ways to cleanly link to The Oscars (2019) show page, thus letting polls appear on that page and letting them take advantage of high award season traffic on The Oscars (2019) page, award season cross-promotion and possibly increase overall vote totals (with your approval).

option #1 - The Oscars (2019) page poll link as an IMDb promo sentence example
A unified The Oscars (2019) show hyperlink and IMDb's Award Central Oscars Guide. hyperlink sentence (placed below award specific question and above discussion/poll list hyperlink)

Get complete The Oscars (2019) coverage on IMDb's Award Central Oscars Guide.

example: Oscars 2018 — Best Original Song
[b]Get complete [link=tt9168816] coverage on IMDb's Award Central [link=https://www.imdb.com/oscars/] Oscars Guide.[/link][/b]

option#2 - The Oscars (2019) page poll link integrated into question example

Which of The Oscars (2019) nominees for the 'Academy Award for Best Animated Feature' do you think should win?

example: Oscars 2019 — Best Animated Feature Film
[b]Which of [link=tt9168816] nominees for the [link=https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000003/2019/1/] 'Academy Award for Best Animated Feature'[/link] do you think should win?[/b]

I think either of Urb's ideas would work well. 

Also, I'd suggest changing "Which of the nominees of the 2019 Academy Award for [Name of the Category] do you think should win?" to the following:

Which of the nominees for the 2019 Academy Award for [Name of the Category] do you think should win? 

(An award can't nominate anyone and people don't receive nominations of an award so, grammatically, "for" is the better word, I think.) 

Thank you, Dan, for organizing all of this and posting the great FAQ. : )
