I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

With only 24 films, many of which have been seen by most of us already, there shouldn't be much difference in the weights of everyone's votes.

When's the deadline for the final ballot, by the way?

June 24.

If I watch one film every day in June, I should be fine.

I checked everything but the two Bergman films. None of the others are fresh enough in memory for me to feel comfortable voting on them. And even the Bergmans I'd like to revisit.

I've only missed two shorts and five full length films.  I can handle that.  I don't know if watching Silk Stockings is worth it for just Best Line, though.

Am I really the only one who watched them all?  I should get a special advantage for that. (My votes count double.)

You should rewatch the ones you're totally wrong about.
