Another poll. About trailers.

In the last poll, I asked you about the Best Actress Oscar race last year. I felt, as many of you did, that Sandra Bullock’s performance didn’t quite merit the award. And as Mad Hatter pointed out, it’s not like she was owed one from years of brilliant, unrecognized performances. So, the poll was about who should of won. And I’m pleased with the results.

Over half of you (57%) thought that Carey Mulligan should have won for her performance in An Education. That’s where my own vote went as well. At least she has plenty of career left, and I’m sure there will be plenty of nominations.

Gabourey Sidibe came in a distant, but respectable second with 29% of the votes for her role in Precious.

One person, with their vote, proudly asserted Sandra did, in fact, deserve her win.

And finally, filmgeek, from Final Cut, chose ‘Other’, and mentioned Emily Blunt in The Young Victoria as her favorite female performance of the year.

Thanks, everybody, for voting! The new poll is about the art of the trailer, and which statement best represents your opinion of them.

Also, I’m always up for finding a new awesome trailer. Leave a link to your favorite, or just tell me what it is in the comments.

    It really depends on the trailer I think…I voted that they are an art form of themselves but some trailers do wet my appetite for a movie and some are misleading and should never be allowed. A well made trailer can be something beautiful by itself but a badly made trailer can put me off a movie entirely.

    They keep that guy in employment. You know the one. ‘One man….alone….against the world. This November’, etc.

    I always wondered if he was like that in his home life.

    K. Most of the above.

    They whet my appetite, they are an art form, they are annoying spoilers, they are awesome and terrible.

    It certainly seems like the trend is that they’re getting worse (more spoilery), and that’s bad. But every now and then, some freakin’ bitchin’ trailers come along and make it all better…at least, until the full length one comes out and ruins the goodwill the teaser might have garnered.

    @ Vanessa – Yeah, this was a really poorly thought out question. I feel like every option is valid.

    @ Colin – I hope he doesn’t. It would get very tiring.

    @ Fletch – I agree. This poll should have been worded more carefully.

    i like trailers unless they air them every five seconds and over saturate my mind. or show me all the good parts, but you never know until AFTER you see the movie.
