Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

I have some problems with this template. It need an A.L.T. code on the main infobox. Thanks TbhotchTalk C. 02:53, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm new and need some help with the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards . As a total newbie, I didn't know I was doing everything wrong but all the editors have been super cool and have helped me start to sort out my biggest issue - of COIN. I have since declared my conflict (I'm a member of the organization but do not have a say in who gets the awards) on the Women in Film Los Angeles and Women in Film and Television International pages which I did create and we're working on merging the two articles. I originally wanted to edit on Wikipedia because I saw that the Crystal + Lucy award page (which I didn't create) needed more information so I inserted the listing of all the awardees and what the awards were for and then I thought I'd be helpful and cross reference and add a mention of the awards to the pages of the recipients (if they had pages). If they did not have pages, I added a link to their page on . I thought I was adding "verifiability" by linking back to the page where the recipients were all listed not understanding that that would be seen as an original source or promotion (I have so much to learn!). I have gone back and removed the references on the actor/director/producer pages but wondered do I need any other reference if it's a fact that they received the award (ie it's verifiable)? I saw that for example on the Crash page it mentions that it won the 2006 Best Picture Oscar but has no secondary source reference for it. Any help is much appreciated!G-Long42 (talk) 17:36, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Updates to TV#MOS[edit]

I'm not sure how many people monitor WP:MOSTV or even WP:TV (the basic WikiProject for all of us), but we've been trying to get some feedback on additions to the TV Manual of Style. It largely has to do with the inclusion of "Overview" tables at the start of the page, the order in which season lists are presented (currently, there is no concrete order), and what is considered too much info for DVDs (i.e. should we be placing every detail about the box set in the article, from each interview to the aspect ratio, or should be keep it more generalized). Please see discussion at WT:MOSTV#Updates to the MOS. Thank you.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 22:06, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Duplicate Articles[edit]

2004 New York Film Critics Circle Awards or New York Film Critics Awards 2004. Shouldn't these all be merged. This is just one example. There is also 2003 New York Film Critics Circle Awards and New York Film Critics Circle Awards 2003. Qwerty786 (talk) 00:12, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

redundant templates?[edit]

I am working on lists and templates for Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Academy Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards. I am trying to determine if they should have {{Film|Awards-task-force=yes}}, {{WikiProject Awards}} or both.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:00, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Filmfare Awards Tamil[edit]

Filmfare Best Actor Award (Tamil) is incomplete on wikipedia. Tha data is not available for several years. I request someone to update it. --Thalapathi (Ping Back) 16:34, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Need Help with Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards[edit]

I've posted this on the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards talk page already...but I need help with establishing notability and then figuring out how to best cross reference the fact that the recipients received an award on their wikipedia page. I have been asked because I am a member of Women in Film not to make changes myself since I have a conflict of interest. We are the biggest entertainment awards ceremony specifically highlighting gender diversity in the entertainment industry. I am a new editor and have become very fearful of making any contribution to Wikipedia because of the response I have received from other editors.

Here is what I posted for notability on the talk page- I wonder is that notable enough?

I did not create the Crystal + Lucy page, only per the banner had added to it to improve it and cross referenced with the actor pages. Here are just a few links where Women in Film and specifically our awards are mentioned. I guess if it's notable enough, someone will take down the banner flagging it for potential deletion? (regarding the vision award)

Hopefully that is enough to be considered notable. Any help or advice from editors who are experts on articles in WikiProject Film or other Entertainment WP is much appreciated.G-Long42 (talk) 09:51, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Empire Awards[edit]

The current name for this page is Empire Awards and I've noticed that the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award and others go with the single form, while others such as Goya Awards go for the plural form. Do we have an agreed upon form for how award names should be? --Gonnym (talk) 04:28, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Not sure if this task force is even active but i'll continue with a followup question. Until now (most of the time anyways), the article names for film awards were "<Film Award> for <Award Category>" - for example - Empire Award for Best Actor. But how should article names for special awards be? for example - Empire had awards such as "Actor of our Lifetime Award" "Heath Ledger Tribute Award" "Icon of the Decade Award" "Movie Masterpiece Award". Should they follow the same format? "Empire Award for Icon of the Decade", "Empire Award for Movie Masterpiece"? I'd really appreciate the input on this. --Gonnym (talk) 09:49, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Deleting branch finalists from Oscar articles[edit]

Because some branches vote in stages and publicly release finalists they were being posted in the articles but when the nominees are announced the finalists are deleted. Like in visual Effects and makeup he official finalists were all deleted from the 2012 article! Qwerty786 (talk) 01:55, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Women's History Month is in March[edit]


Hi everyone at WikiProject Film awards!

Women's history month is around the corner, in March, and we're planning the second WikiWomen's History Month.

This event, which is organized by volunteers from the WikiWomen's Collaborative, supports improving coverage about women's history during the month of March. Events take place both offline and online. We are encouraging WikiProjects to focus on women's history related to their subject for the month of March. Ideas include:

  • Improving coverage about awards focused on women
  • Content about women award winners

We hope you'll participate! You can list your your project focus here, and also help improve our to-do list. Thank you for all you do for Wikipedia! SarahStierch (talk) 21:45, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Project request[edit]

Discussion was initiated at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film, but is being moved here per an editor's suggestion that this would be a more appropriate place. Bearcat (talk) 15:55, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

In the past couple of weeks, I've been trying to improve Wikipedia's coverage of the Canadian Genie Awards. The articles have been left in an extremely poor state for a very long time — for example, some of them still fail to actually list the winners or nominees for some entire categories — and it's long past time to bring them up to contemporary Wikipedia standards of formatting, referencing and completeness. However, I received little response when I asked for assistance at WP:CANTALK, so I thought I'd ask here if anybody's willing to help out.

The biggest chunk of the work involves getting the formatting up to scratch, and copying information over from IMDb in categories where it's still missing. Since most of the possible referencing will involve digging into Canadian newspaper databases, however, most people here won't be able to help much with that. Since I have direct access to Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail archives through the Toronto Public Library, I can look after this part on my own — but I'd appreciate any help that anyone's willing to provide on the basic formatting and missing data pieces.

I've written up a basic overview of the scope of the project, which you can read at Wikipedia:Canadian Wikipedians' notice board/Genies cleanup project. At present, the following articles are the ones in need of attention:

I want to stress that I need help with this badly — I seem to be the only person willing to take it on at all, but I can't do it all by myself. So I'd be most grateful if a few people would be willing to assist; even if you don't know that much about Canadian film, mostly all you need to do is some cutting and pasting, so that I can concentrate on the more complicated referencing stuff. Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 01:16, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

This is a very general project page rather than a task force, and is basically for resolving disputes and addressing the MOS. You'd probably get a better response at Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Film awards task force and Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Canadian cinema task force which have a declared interest in those article, or maybe contacting recent editors at those articles and seeing if they would interested in collaborating. Betty Logan (talk) 05:27, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Bearcat, I'd love to help with this, time permitting. I'm currently working on the Swedish Guldbagge Awards, with article creation, etc. Looking at some of those award cermonies, they have no sources. Is there a good online resource for the nominations outside of IMDB? Does the Genie Awards homepage have the nomination info? Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 07:30, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
They do have an awards and nominees database — it's at this link. Just for the record, I personally find it very poorly structured and hard to use, though you can certainly grab missing information from there instead of IMDb if you prefer. In terms of actively referencing our articles, however, I'm concentrating on pulling out media coverage from the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail archive databases instead of citing stuff directly to the ACCT database itself — for example, I've already added sources to 4th Genie Awards and 19th Genie Awards in the process of upgrading those. Again though, I'm willing to look after the referencing piece myself, since I do have access to a couple of appropriate newspaper databases that you or other participants might not have — but they'd get reffed up a lot faster if I could dedicate myself specifically to that, instead of having to leapfrog all over the place like a kid with ADHD (*grin*) Bearcat (talk) 15:55, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I'll try to help, if I can. I can't commit to anything specific right now, though. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 16:55, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Bearcat. Remember, there's no deadline, but I appreciate the need to get things like this fixed! Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 18:49, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, true, there's no deadline — but at the same time, in practice things like this don't actually get fixed until one or more people actually commit themselves to getting them fixed. Just as another example of the problem, on 4th alone I caught one redlinked film which was being disambiguated as "(movie)" in some places and "(film)" in others — and actually already had an the undisambiguated title.

Deletion of Online Film Critics Society[edit]

This article page has 1 reference on it, and has been tagged as relying on a single source since June 2013. The other subpages, like Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Documentary, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Breakthrough Filmmaker, Best Breakthrough Performance, Best Animated Feature, haven't been sourced and tagged that way since 2006/2007. And it's because these awards, these vast number of "Film Critic Society's" are hard to find reliable sources on. I feel like this page and all the other pages on {Online Film Critics Society Awards} template should be deleted per WP:INDISCRIMINATE. But I'd like to get other thoughts before nominating the whole lot of them. LADY LOTUSTALK 12:17, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

I realize this is belated, but everything you have said here makes sense to me and I encourage you to perform the nomination(s). KDS4444Talk 17:55, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Oldest living Oscar winners and nominees by category[edit]

Do members of this project consider this user page a viable possibility as a mainspace article? Obviously it would need appropriate referencing (I have found one useful source) and expansion for all categories. It has been suggested at Mfd that it be included in List of oldest and youngest Academy Award winners and nominees which may be a viable alternative. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 00:11, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Now in mainspace at List of oldest living Academy Award winners. Cheers, DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 22:52, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Accolade Competition for deletion[edit]

WikiProject Film/ Film Awards Task Force: A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Accolade Competition is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted as non-notable. As members of this project, your input may be especially valuable.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Accolade Competition until a consensus is reached, hopefully within the next seven days, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion should focus on high-quality evidence and on our policies and guidelines.

89th Academy Awards[edit]

I need your help, editors are continuously adding to this page, adding different facts regarding nominations and all, I don't know how to structured that or what to leave or remove. Many things are new in this year nominations, and obviously we cannot add all distinctions. Please visit the page and check. There are lots of new facts related to this ceremony, and editors are continuously adding such facts, where there are no questions about their authenticity at the same time we cannot state every fact into it. Either we have to create a separate section for them or have to reach a mutual consensus to remove it or at least trim to it the most important ones. Nauriya (Rendezvous) 11:38, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
