IN or OUT: Whats the word?

Just a little free-association, social-temperature kinda thing.

What, In Your Humble Opinion is In, and, conversely, what is Out for the 2012 Comp.

The question was raised at a meeting recently,
"Will we be plagued with oh-so-shallow-depth-of-field-shots, again this year?"
It was looking like it was a bloody required element!
Needle sharp this and oooh-so-fuzzy-background that. It became dull, after a while.

Anyway...I digress, out with it: Whats In And Whats Out?
I'll start:

IN: Beards
OUT: Obvious TV/pop culture references.

IN: beards, real beards that is not 5 o'clock shadow trimmed to perfection beards but real honest to goodness beards that can house 15 days worth of Krispie crumbs not not have them seen.

OUT: Humour that relies on just how many offensive words that can be put into a sentence for no real reason.
