    In the spirit of, and in tribute to, Jedi_Lite's AOTC Awards Threads ([link=]here[/link] and [link=]here[/link]), we present


    Voting begins today and ends on Friday, May 26 at 12:01 AM Pacific Time (also board time). That gives you six days to vote. The weekend will be used for vote tallying and panicking on the presenter's part, and then we will have an amusing and comedic awards show.

    This was a lot of fun in the AOTC forum. Some people even made friends through the awards -- I know I did. I hope it'll be a lot of fun here, too, even if we must suffer without Jedi_Lite.

    So here are the rules:

    ? One vote per person, obviously.
    ? You do not need to vote for every category if you don't want.
    ? One vote per category (so you can't vote for both Panaka AND Ric Olie as your favorite character).
    ? We are voting on TPM and TPM only.
    ? Best/Worst Shot is not the same as Best/Worst Scene. A shot is one particular unbroken stretch of film before the camera angle or location changes. The lightsaber duel is a SCENE; Maul's fall into the pit is a SHOT.
    ? Best/Worst Equipment refers to vehicles, weapons and other assorted technical gadgets.
    ? Best New Concept/Idea: By this I mean something that was never seen in the Classic Trilogy. Hyperspace and droids are not new. Podracing, double-bladed lightsabers, Gungans and midichlorians are. (Those were just examples! Pick anything!)

    Here are the categories, which you can copy and paste into your post for easy reference.


    Happy voting!

    Rick McCallum loves you!

    Isn't 6 days voting time a little on the short side AdamBertocci?

    Not that it really matters.

    Atleast tallying will be easy at the end of it and awards will be more regular! :D

    My turn :D :

    BEST SCENE: Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's conversation on the balcony at the Jedi Temple.

    WORST SCENE: As much as I love Obi-wan (and we all know i do) I can't stand the scene where he is talking to QGJ when he comes back with the stuff for the ship... Obi-Wan's bread is on the wrong side :eek: !!! That annoys me so much :mad:

    BEST SHOT: When Obi-Wan has to toss his saber to the other hand in the middle of fighting Maul :) That was so cool!!! [face_love]

    WORST SHOT: R2's head falling off during the podrace

    BEST CHARACTER: Palpatine (And I really, really wanna say Obi-Wan...but c'mon Palpy!!!! :) )

    WORST CHARACTER: Kitster. Man do I hate him :mad:

    BEST ACTOR: As much as I wanna say Ewan (and I really, really do!!!!) Ian McD wins out

    BEST LINE: "Here Master, Tatooine" Oh man that line made me fall in love with Obi-Wan [face_love]

    BEST SOUND EFFECT: Ratts Tyrell's little scream before he dies.

    WORST COSTUME: Ric Olie's outfit

    BEST EQUIPMENT: Lightsabers (esp. QGJ's)

    WORST EQUIPMENT: The boomers or whatever they are called, that are used by the gungans. They are so useless that the gungans even have a better chance at winning by fighting with their fists (as you can see many of them doing in the background)

    BEST SPECIAL EFFECT: JJB, its cool how he can talk and interact with them (like when he lifts Anakin up or when Padme takes his hand out of the pod)

    BEST SCENE: Obi-Wan vs. Maul. How much did this scene rock? A helluva lot!

    WORST SCENE: Ani gives Padme the japor snippet. Good lord, Natalie was awful. I bought that Ani was upset about his mom, but Portman couldn't have looked more bored.

    BEST SHOT: The overhead view of Theed. Absolutely gorgeous. It really did take my breath away.

    WORST SHOT: None.

    BEST CHARACTER: Qui-Gon Jinn. I loved him. I wish he could be my dad. :D

    WORST CHARACTER: Mace Windu. He didn't do anything of note, was just around to establish his position on the council for AOTC.

    BEST ACTOR: Liam Neeson. Ewan is my favorite actor in general, but Liam really made me love this movie.

    WORST ACTOR: Sam Jackson. He bored me. I start snoring every time his mouth opens.

    BEST ACTRESS: Pernilla August. She was perfect.

    WORST ACTRESS: Natalie Portman. She frowned more than Obi-Wan did. That isn't acting, that was disdain for the film itself. Why did she even bother to show up. [face_plain]

    BEST LINE: "When they find us, they will crush us, grind us into little pieces, then blast us into oblivion!"

    WORST LINE: "Are you brain dead?" Ugh, that made me flinch.

    BEST SOUND EFFECT: Sebulba's pod racer engine. When I saw TPM in the theater, you could felt the seat rumbling when he flew across the screen.


    BEST COSTUME: Amidala's white Parade gown.

    WORST COSTUME: Amidala's Senate gown. I hated it and the hair.

    BEST SET/LOCATION: Jedi Council's Chamber

    WORST SET/LOCATION: Interior of the Queen's transport. It was rather dull and unmemorable.

    BEST EQUIPMENT: Lightsabers. Duh.

    WORST EQUIPMENT: Maul's floating orbs. Very boring. And the wrist controller was far too 007.

    BEST SPECIAL EFFECT: The Gungan shield. That was pretty damn cool.


    BEST MUSICAL MOMENT: While DotF is my favorite piece, the best moment was the use of the Force theme while Qui-Gon was cutting into the door of the TF's bridge.

    BEST NEW CONCEPT/IDEA: I really like the "Only 2" concept. Its good to clarify that there is one apprentice per master

    BEST JAR JAR MOMENT: "Thats the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way..." up to the part where JJ spins and Obi ducks. That was cute. :)

    And I just want to add that it really annoyed me that the Queen was constantly wearing that one purple gown. What was that about? They couldn't come up with something new for the ride home or for the funeral? Just lazy. 8-}

    BEST SCENE: The Pod Race, simply an incredible sequence. I loved everything about it.

    WORST SCENE: That thing farting on Jar-Jar...George pushed to edit out as much as possible to keep the running time short, why didnt he cut that stupid scene??

    BEST SHOT: During the DotF, the camera pans up really quickly and we see the fight from a distance...well done.

    WORST SHOT: The camera staring at that things butt while it farts.

    BEST CHARACTER: Qui-Gon, Palpatine


    BEST ACTOR: Liam Neeson

    WORST ACTOR: Dude who plays Valorum...just really pothered me for some reason.

    BEST ACTRESS: Anakin's mother I suppose.

    WORST ACTRESS: Natalie Portman

    BEST LINE: "The Shield Generator's been hit!!!" Always cracks me up. Is Ric Ollie constipated, on speed, possibly both?

    WORST LINE: When Kitster says something like "That's wizard, annie!" ewww....

    BEST SOUND EFFECT: When Sebulba's Pod crash's, with the abrupt silence, followed by the crash and that crazy little sound, just great.

    WORST SOUND EFFECT: The fart...I can imagine Lucas to Burtt "Juicer!! It need's to be juicier!!"

    BEST COSTUME: Padme's dress at end celebration.

    WORST COSTUME: The dress Padme wears when she first arrives on Coruscant, the black one. ick.

    BEST SET / LOCATION: Senate room.

    WORST SET / LOCATION: The room where Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan talk to Boss Nass in the underwater city...bad effects.

    BEST EQUIPMENT: That thing that holds the droids, watching them all come out and unfold before the grass battle was awesome.

    WORST EQUIPMENT: Those little light things that Padme and Panaka shot at each other.

    BEST SPECIAL EFFECT: The grass battle is amazing.

    WORST SPECIAL EFFECT: The pod race announcer, obviously rushed.

    BEST MUSICAL MOMENT: Final celebration, I love how Williams used the emperor's chanting theme and had children do it for the happy celebration song, actually signifying the beginning of the end for the republic...just wonderful.

    BEST NEW CONCEPT/IDEA: Jedi Council. Just plain cool.

    BEST JAR JAR MOMENT: During the Droid Battle, everything Jar-Jar does I think is funny, especially his scream and facial expression when he runs from the peace balls that everyone mentioned, hilarious.

    BEST SCENE: Obi-Wan versus Maul. On the DVD commentary, Lucas says that Ewan and Maul really threw themselves into this scene trying to out fight one another. And it shows. So much emotion and not a word said.

    WORST SCENE: That darn eopie scene. I've seen this film more times than I care to admit, and I still cringe.

    BEST SHOT: Obi-Wan shooting that stunned/hurt/surprised look at Qui-Gon in the Council Chamber when QG announces he will train Anakin. Up until that moment, Obi-Wan hadn't shown much emotion. That one look made me want to hug and comfort him, poor boy.

    WORST SHOT: Does the eopie's behind count? Can you tell I didn't like this part?

    BEST CHARACTER: Young Obi-Wan Kenobi. I loved watching him open up a little and come into his own by the end of the film.

    WORST CHARACTER: Aurra Sing. She didn't even do anything, yet she's one of the most popular minor characters from this film. Frustrates me to no end.

    BEST ACTOR: Ewan McGregor. Has to take someone very talented to take over for Sir Alec.

    WORST ACTOR: Jake Lloyd. Hurts me to say it because he's just a boy, but I didn't care for him.

    BEST ACTRESS: Keira Knightley. I love Nat, but I thought Keira was much more consistent and regal as the decoy.

    WORST ACTRESS: Whoever played Jira. I wouldn't be smiling that much if a dust storm was coming.

    BEST LINE: "We are brave, Your Highness." I just love this one because it exemplifies all that the handmaidens are.

    WORST LINE: "Mom, you always say the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other."

    BEST SOUND EFFECT: Does Ewan's accent count? No, well...Lightsabers igniting. Classic Star Wars sound effect that can still give me chills.

    WORST SOUND EFFECT: The Gungan glow balls bouncing down the field after Jar Jar. Too cartoonish.

    BEST COSTUME: Queen Amidala's Throne Room Gown, though my choice changes regularly. Trisha did a great job and all the costumes are beautiful.

    WORST COSTUME: Aurra Sing's stupid orange jumpsuit.

    BEST SET / LOCATION: Theed. It's gorgeous and has now replaced Cloud City as my favorite SW location.

    WORST SET / LOCATION: Watto's viewing box at the Pod Race. Can't think of anything else.

    BEST EQUIPMENT: Lightsabers. I don't even think I need to give a reason for this one.

    WORST EQUIPMENT: The Disco Ball given to Boss Nass at the Parade. What was that thing anyway?

    BEST SPECIAL EFFECT: The first aerial view of Theed Palace. Breathtaking.

    WORST SPECIAL EFFECT: Obi-Wan ducking when Jar Jar's ears go flying as the Gungan spins around.

    BEST MUSICAL MOMENT: Darth Maul's appearance in the hanger. The music leading up to that build the tension, then...

    BEST NEW CONCEPT/IDEA: Handmaidens. Always great to see loyal and brave female characters who can kick butt.

    BEST JAR JAR MOMENT: "Steady, steady."
