Unmasking the cabal!

Here are the success rates for each voter, taking into account only the categories where that person had seen the eventual winner (and thus had an opportunity to vote for it):

Junior80.0% (8/10)
Antares64.3% (9/14)
sdedalus62.5% (10/16)
jbissell60.0% (6/10)
Jared56.3% (9/16)
maρana53.8% (7/13)
toro91353.3% (8/15)
oldkid53.3% (8/15)
Bondo53.3% (8/15)
pixote50.0% (4/8)
worm@work50.0% (5/10)
OVERALL49.4% (126/255)
verbALs46.2% (6/13)
flieger43.8% (7/16)
roujin38.5% (5/13)
MartinTeller37.5% (6/16)

PeacefulAnarchy     35.7% (5/14)

I regret not getting into this just a little bit to bolster Nights of Cabiria into getting more nominations and Masina a win. Oh well.
