Yuletide 2012 Nominations are now open. Nomination Confirmation/Rejection Tracking Post. Having recently seen Snow White And The Huntsman and Cabin In The Woods for the first time, I’m pleased to see that someone has nominated them both. As for me, I nominated Fright Night (1985), League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, and The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. I saw someone else promising to add The Shadow, so I went with the runner-up from the poll (since I’m probably the only one that knows of Mr. Boogedy, I went with Lost Skeleton). I’m desperately hoping someone out there adds Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and the Superdictionary.
