Miyazaki, as Basil said, is taking over this competition.

I think he's alright, but he'll never be one of my favorites. Either I just don't get what's so marvelous about his work or I'm a bastard with a cold heart.

I like to think it's the latter.

He wouldn't be my number 1, but the more I think about it the more I think he'll end up ranked highly.

That's a great list face, especially your #1.  I'm going to finish Wajda before I finalize my list but he's off to a good start so far.
