Agree with the other remarks...

and as previously stated in the chat, now let's get cracking on the '90s.  :)

Just saw your Best of the Decade Winners.  Don't know how I missed it.

Surprises:
Unfortunately, a vote for the Coen Brothers is a vote for Intolerable Cruelty, Burn After Reading and The Ladykillers.
I love Alfonso Cuaron as a director, but my favorite film by him is a Harry Potter.
I will always treasure Miyazaki and WKW, even if I only treasured 1 of their 3 films.
Tarantino had more features this decade than the previous.  I hope the trend continues.
Greengrass and Nolan.  Seeing them makes me happiest.  (Sorry, Bill).
Herzog didn't make the director's list.

That shot used for 'Marisa Tomei - In the Bedroom' should be an animated .gif so we can watch what happens next.
I expected Filmspotters of all people to see through Mo'nique's one-note performance in Precious.  You disappoint me.


I'm that much of an insecure narcissist that how often I was quoted was as interesting to me as the winners themselves.

The post for cinematography winners seems empty to me.

Very nice job guys. Really happy with all the lists so far. Love Leonardo DiCaprio for The Departed.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Ok, went ahead and put in the winners for those two in the winners thread and they will be prettified when we have a chance. This value added presentation of the lists is a bit of work.

Also, the winners thread will be unlocked for comments.

It was all those polls you started, your intros were very quotable. :)
