Non-special effects? What the hell? OK, I now it's an awful title, but what else should it called? Cinematography, that's the fancy name. I need some category to describe the colors of Slumdog Millionaire, the beauty of Chicago in The Dark Knight or the great retro feel of Frost/Nixon and Milk.

The Academy Awards just don’t cut it. Every year I watch, and every year I think they get something wrong. Not only that, why can’t there be more than five nominations, categories that fans care about (no offense “Best Achievement in Sound Editing), and who got second place?
Instead of sitting still — I created the Scorecard Movie Awards.
Categories range from the typical (Best Overall Cast, Best Actor, Best Film) to the atypical (Best Ending, Best Quote, Funniest).
If you have seen two movies or 200, it doesn’t matter. You only vote for the films you have seen.
There are 27 questions including the Hall of Fame.
Most categories, you will vote from 1-10, with 10 being the highest. You are scoring each individual nomination, not ranking them. So you can have multiple 7s, 8s, 10s, it doesn’t matter. And your favorite nomination doesn’t have to receive a 10.
Enjoy. The last day to vote is February 21. The day before the Oscars.
