Hollywood Handbook Fantasy Film Draft (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Acting: A Hobbit's Tale)

Recommended Posts

Hello all you Handbookheads, podpeople, and forumfreaks. This is the Hollywood Handbook Fantasy Film Draft. The rules are simple (in that they are complicated). I'm making this up as I go along but I think the formula is airtight and has absolutely no flaws whatsoever.


The purpose of this "game" is to assemble your master team of actors, actresses, athletes and musicians for the ultimate film of the 2015/2016 Oscar season.


Each month, you will have the option of adding 2 people to your fantasy film cast. Once you select these 2 people, nobody else may pick them for their cast (but you can trade).


On the first of each month, points will be awarded to your casts. If they release a "Certified Fresh" film, that's +20 points. If they release a "Certified Rotten" film, -20 points. On the first of each month, I will view their top news stories on Google. If their most recent story is a positive one (i.e. hot new single, smoking red carpet appearance, charity work) they receive +5 points. If their recent story is negative (i.e. Twitter beef, drunken tirade, bad breakup), -5 points. Make sense? No? Here's an example:


This is the most recent google news article on Leonardo DiCaprio-

"Turns out Leonardo DiCaprio does NOT have fleas living in his beard...Leonardo DiCaprio fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Reports that the star has fleas living in his beard have been proven to be false."


This story is positive. +5 points.


Once the Oscars are completed, we will decide the winner. Having an Oscar win for your pick will result in TBD crazy points, but we will cross that bridge when it gets a little closer.


Anyone can select cast members at any time even if you missed previous months, but only for the month we're in, so if you want an extra boost of 2 cast members you have 9 days left to make August picks!


Send me your questions and post your choices below. You can even give a brief synopsis of your film if you'd like, and what type of role you're going to give to your selections. LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
