6 Oscar nominations, 9 mentions on my lists…and yet it ended up with no nominations from me.

Here, for fun, are my rankings for all my award categories as they stand at the moment.

These aren’t scientific, and they aren’t authoritative. For a while, I was capping my lists at 15, and so if there’s a film or performance missing from a given category that you know I’ve seen, that might be why.
