Imagine what goes through the mind of an Academy member during the first few weeks of the new year.
He or she is required to process the last 12 months of movie releases in order to coherently fill out their ballots for the upcoming Academy Award nominations, a feat that can be rather difficult if the prior year was a cinematically potent one. Just what do they think of the material released in 2001, though? Are the best movie choices clear? Is there a lack of decent material to nominate? And what will they remember (or forget) when it comes time to turn in their final ballots?
