2016: Dream Oscar Ballot

As far as rules go, I’ve tried to stay within the general Oscar eligibility windows (some form of US theatrical/streaming release within the 2016 calendar year) for all categories (unlike Foreign Language, where it’s dependent on the release in the home country etc etc). To accomodate for the bounty of riches (especially with the performances), categories have been given the flexibility shown by the Golden Globes and the Emmys, with a max of 7 allowed (in most cases, there are usually 5 honorable mentions that I could easily switch out depending on mood).
