"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



Yeah! this will be fun! I just have to decide on which of the many great westerns I want for a nom. So I think I'll watch some potential noms over the next 10 days and send in my nom right before this starts.

Looking forward to seeing your pic!



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
nomination sent!

I’ve picked my nom and I went with a very well known but blind watch.
What do you guys mean when you refer to a “blind watch”?
Is it one you haven’t seen before, I assume? I always thought the nominations had to be of films we have seen before, so correct me if I’m wrong on that

No they don’t have to be. I only nominate blind films when there’s an upcoming countdown and I want to get in as many as possible (I.e. pre-30s).
And yes, it means I haven’t seen it before.



Not joining right now because I don't have enough time to watch a bunch that I've already seen. If the noms come out and I haven't seen most, and it's still open, I'll hop in. If not, I'll probably at least watch whatever nominations I haven't seen.

I've been thinking and I'm actually on the same boat (hope @cricket has big enough boat for two). I just don't want to rewatch ones I already know to be on my list.

I was concerned about the same thing and was considering a wait and see approach as well, but there’s large amount of westerns I have yet to see that will probably be nominated, at least I am hoping for anyways.
Even if I have seen them, looking over my collection, I realize I haven’t seen them in quite awhile so they’re due for a re-watch.
Hopefully it works out for you guys and you are able to join. 🙂



Hmm... looks like we might have to do double noms. There’s already four people who said “Maybe” and one person who will nominate right before the deadline, so I guess we’ll still keep it one until the noms reveal.

I'm in for sure! So you can count me as a member. I'm just trying to make up my mind as to what western I choose.

Hopefully more will join, sometimes it takes awhile before people see a thread as they aren't online that much. I think this will be a fun HoF

I’m sure some others will join once the noms are shown. What’s usually a preferred number of reviewers for these things? Or does that vary on the various HOF?

I was hoping for at least eight, but we can make do with less I guess.

Doing the reveal and seeing which of the "maybes" join it should get us over the minimum of 8. Which in it's way is fine since the ideal scenario is to get a couple of these done before the Countdown and having a smaller group will definitely guarantee that since we normally set the time restraint as a week per each nomination.



There were a lot of choices I could have gone with, many that I own, but I narrowed it down to 3 and went with one I didn’t think many have watched yet, and also one I have wanted to watch again since it’s been quite a few years.
I can’t wait to see the reveals 🙂

Let's invite some people! Off the top of my head I can think of:
@gbgoodies @KeyserCorleone @rauldc14 @GulfportDoc @Hey Fredrick (sorry if I forgot anybody else, maybe I'll PM a few people too)

Thanks for the invite, but you'll have to add me to the "wait and see" club. I've been watching a lot of westerns over the past couple of weeks, and I think I'm starting to realize that I'm not much of a westerns fan, and I think I hate the spaghetti westerns.
