I didn't realize that this HoF was starting so soon. I narrowed down my list to about a dozen comedy movies from 1977-1989 that I love, (none of which are probably good enough to win this HoF).

Give me a day or two to narrow it down to the two movies that I want to nominate, and I'll submit my noms.

If you need help feel free to PM me but awesome

I don't expect my noms to do well in this HoF, but I sent in my noms. (Is there a prize for having the bottom two movies in the HoF voting? )

@Citizen Rules already won that in Pre-30s I... even he voted his own noms last if I remember correctly.

Yeah, but I'll bet at least one of his noms was a blind grab. Both of my noms are movies that I love.

I proudly hold the record for having my two noms finish last and second to last in the Pre 30s HoF I

And I have the proud distinction of being the only person to vote their own nom last place

Coming in Dead Last and making HoF history! is:


10th Place

Making HoF history as I'm the first person (as far as I know) to vote their own nom last!

I was thinking about not revealing who nominated who until the end, not going to happen now.

You could still do that, she didn't say what her noms were, only that she didn't think they would do well. I think my noms will get mixed reactions. I like your idea to not reveal who nominated what, until during the reveal.



I would join but the double noms makes it too many films to watch for me since I have to finish 20rh and just started the Japanese one.

You can do a single nomination, most of these comedies are going to be short.

I've enjoyed having Who nominates something as well as it being a mystery. So @Siddon, if you'd like to leave out who nominated what, by all means.

You can still wait to reveal who nominated what until the end.

I was having a hard time narrowing it down to only two noms anyway, so I'm even willing to change my noms if you want me to. I'll even try to pick movies that might "blend in" more with the other noms this time. (I have whole list of favorite comedy movies that can easily lose this HoF. )
