I think this next round is going to be much harder.

I wonder if the scoring should maybe be different next round, so that if the film you guess at #10 finishes at #11, you still get points.

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

I am open to changing the scoring, but could we discuss it in in the Autumn topic so it is all together.

Max score would be 150. You'd have to be within nine spots of the film's actual rank to earn points, so if your #1 pick falls outside the top ten to 11th, you'd get zero points; but if your #10 pick ends up 11th, you'd get 13 points. This also maintains a point bonus for guessing the actual rank exactly.

=MAX(14-ABS(actual-guess),0)*IF(ABS(actual-guess)>9,0,1)+IF(actual=guess,1,0)
