Points are also awarded or subtracted for your film’s Metacritic Score. Scoring is determined using the following scale:
Oscar bonus points are awarded using the following scale:
Draft order will be randomly assigned. Teams will draft in a snake-like fashion for the first 15 rounds of their rosters. The remaining films for their roster can be picked up over the course of the season.
A player can have a maximum of 30 movies on their roster. There is no minimum. The first 15 films in their roster will be selected during the draft. The remaining films can be picked up over the course of the season via free agents, the waiver wire, or trades.
A player can add a movie at any time. If they already have 30 movies on their roster, they must cut a movie.
Once a movie has been released in the US (limited or wide release), that movie CANNOT be cut or traded from a player’s roster. The deadline to cut a movie is 10 am PST the day before the movie’s scheduled release date. For example, if a player wishes to cut a movie scheduled to be released on Friday, July 6th, they must do so by 10 am PST on Thursday, July 5th.
Movies can be traded amongst players. Multiple movies can be traded at once. Players involved in a trade do not have to send over the same number of movies. For instance, Player A can trade three (3) movies to Player B in exchange for just one (1) movie. The trade deadline is December 1st, 2019 at 12:01am.
