All Oscar Polls: Category: Oscars

Format of the Polls
Title: Oscars 2020 — [Name of the Category]
Description: Which of the nominees of [link=tt10305932] for [Name of the Category] do you think should win?

Please initially limit your poll suggestions to one major category and one minor category to allow other poll authors the chance to suggest Academy 2020 related polls. If someone has not created a poll for a category after one week after the announcement, that category is open to everyone.

Award polls, such as the Oscars 2020 polls, are a good opportunity for new authors to learn how to create, suggest and mature polls. When a new author suggests the same poll as an established poll author, we will give consideration to the new author and ask the established author to defer to the new author. We will also list both poll pending poll suggestions as appropriate.

Please do not make lists and discussion threads until the nominations are announced?. It needlessly clutters the board, making our jobs as admin a bit harder.

So far there is one suggestion by a new author, but the category has been pre-assigned to a regular author. This happened last year too. Any thoughts?

Sorry, but I had rightfully claimed this category before this other user:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-oscars-2020-best-supporting-actor
If I'm correct, there are still 4 categories that have not yet been claimed by anybody, so there is still choice.

I acknowledged that you had claimed it.

I just think this process is not very open to new authors, who don't come looking for Dan's thread, but just post their ideas.

I think last year I suggested that more regular or seasoned authors volunteer to give up a category to a new author. 

I only have one minor category (Short Documentary) and plan to sign up for another minor category (Short Live Action) but if a new author would like either or both, they are more than welcome. If anyone knows of a new author who might want one or both, please go to my discussion thread for the one I finished already and let me know:

Peter, do you have any ideas about how to let new authors know about this, besides us keeping our eyes open for new authors who post something new?
Dan, could you perhaps leave a note in the main, original post of this thread? 
I'll also leave a note on my discussion thread for my Oscar poll.

(And Peter, thank you for noticing this and posting.)

Peter and Ruby,

I added this text in the first post:

Award polls, such as the Oscars 2020 polls, are a good opportunity for new authors to learn how to create, suggest and mature polls. When a new author suggests the same poll as an established poll author, we will give consideration to the new author and ask the established author to defer to the new author. We will also list both poll pending poll suggestions as appropriate.

= = = Additional thoughts = = =

Ultimately, it will be a judgement call as to which poll suggestion we will have go live. We are balancing providing properly formatted polls for poll takers with allowing as many authors as practical the opportunity for their polls to go live.

That's very fair, a good approach, and really well written. Bravo. : )

The same approach didn't work last year when the same thing occurred.

Anyway, at this point this is mostly feedback for next year.

I have finished this category poll but if any new author would like to take it, I'd be happy to have him, her, or them take it. (If they want to, they can copy my list.)

Oscars 2020 — Best Documentary Short Subject
List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls093983375/
GS Discussion Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/suggestion-oscars-2020-best-documentary-short-subject

I am also happy to do do the poll for Best Live Action Short but, again, if a new author wants to take it, that would be fine. 

Lastly, like in other years, I can do a poll for "Most Memorable Moment" or "Most Moving / Favorite / Most Worthy Standing Ovation" (depending on which one is more fitting for this year's ceremony) the night of the Oscars, although if a new author would like to do this and think they can keep up with it, I'd be more than happy to let him/her/them take this and help, if needed.
