1980 FILM BALLOT

Another one of my old "Best in Film" ballots. To contrast beside the Academy's nominees & winners. 
Other year-end ballots posted at The Wandering Image:   1980, 1981,

 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991,1992,

Also, if you wish to view my favorite 30 films of 1980, go here


Note: "Animated Short" and "Animated Feature" categories have been merged into one Animation category, regardless of runtime length. Also "Sound Editing" and "Sound Mixing" have been combined into one "Sound Design" category. Focusing on both overall mix and sound creation. I also had to drop the "Non-animated short" category, due to not having seen that many shorts pre 1983.
