And finally, the moment we've waited a year for...

For Best Picture:

In 4th place, with 16 points, Avatar.

In 2nd place, with 22 points, Up in the Air.
And the winner of the Spilled Latte for Best Picture, with 27 points... Inglourious Basterds!

So there you are. Inglourious Basterds, very appropriately, takes home three Spilled Lattes, while The Informant surprisingly takes home two. Avatar, An Education, Precious, Where the Wild Things Are, and Up each take home one Latte a piece.

***** ORIGINAL POST/NOMINEES *****

A number of reasons, most of them professional, had to do with why I never ended up tallying the Spilled Lattes last year. It didn't help that I was pretty disheartened by the lack of participation, and the large number of incomplete lists. It's hard to claim it's a list that defines what PTP thinks when I think we barely had ten complete voting ballots and only five or so more incomplete voting ballots. I'm really hoping that by mentioning it earlier this year, we can inspire people to get off their asses this season, see the flicks they are waiting to see, and put their votes in on time this year! (It also helps that my professional schedule is much clearer this spring than last spring.)

Without any further ado (after a year of further ado), let me first tease you with the nominees for last year's Spilled Latte Awards. Note: if there are six nominees, it's because the 5th place slot was a tie.

Inglourious Basterds received eight Spilled Latte nominations, a record in Spilled Lattes history. This number is assisted by Melanie Laurent pulling off the Casey Affleck Special, getting nominated for both the lead and the supporting category with the same performance. A number of films line up to receive four nominations, including Avatar, Up In The Air, The Hurt Locker, and Where The Wild Things Are. District 9 and A Serious Man got three apiece, and Precious and The Informant! each received a pair. Earning their third and fourth nomination a piece, the Coen Brothers currently have more Spilled Latte nominations historically than anyone else. Roger Deakins and Casey Affleck both have three nominations, though neither were nominated for 2009.

TRIVIA: If Best Picture was expanded to ten, just like the Academy Awards, the films The Hurt Locker, In The Loop, Adventureland, Black Dynamite, and Up would have made the cut. How does that compare with the Academy list in your mind? How does the ballot in general size up against last year's Oscar nominees list?

These are just the top five vote-getters. The number one recipient of points from the ballot collection process is the winner. The winners will be revealed tomorrow.

There's at least one big surprise.

O_E used the phrase "latte" predominantly to describe the crowd of filmgoers who loved Pulp Fiction and other Quentin Tarantino films.

So it makes sense that he'd win. I'm actually surprised it wasn't more of a blowout.

Q makes nice eye candy and writes some damn fine dialogue, but the end product isn't always cohesive and definitely not GOAT-worthy.

... the board demographic slash fanboy factor.

If this forum was around in "my era," it'd be Scorcese (which would be OK with me).

Frank would you consider any of the following:

1. Combining Adapted / Original Screenplay (best overall screenplay)?
2. Including best score?
3. Not separating animated from overall best picture?

Also, are we doing ten BP nominees?

1. I'd rather not personally-- if the Oscars themselves aren't doing it, I don't see why we should. But I can see why a desire to know what the best overall screenplay is... I can leave it open to debate in a different post.

2. I actually was going to include Best Score this year.

3. Yeah, we may eliminate that category this year... I thought last year was a watermark year in terms of depth of quality animated film, which is why I felt it was a good idea. But this year, with really only three or four films, and I feel Toy Story 3 would be the obvious winner, I don't really see the point.

This'll all be discussed in a post that'll come up right at the new year.
