We will have to see who gets an Oscar in 2010, but this is your chance to vote for the best fantasy, horror or scifi movie!

How about all the cartoons like Up etc - although I guess they are more light fantasy, rather than full-on SFF.

I think in the proper Oscars they have their own animated award, don't they?

Avatar should get it this year - def. more cartoon than movie!

Avatar is going to sweep the awards this year.

The Oscars are all about rewarding success - that's why Titanic got it big, and ditto Lord of the Rings.

It depends on whether this is a popular vote or a juried vote for best movie as selected by a panel of your peers.

Moon might hit the latter, Star Trek would no doubt scoop the former.
