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.

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

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

At this point the amount of love this board shows for QT and Nolan sickens me, at least I can justify all the Wes Anderson love in my head because I like Anderson, but those two, ugh.

I've been impressed with Nolan. I feel like he just gets it.

I have never really liked QT and realize I will never "get" Pulp Fiction, and I like Nolan's films, though he seems to be a little hot or miss for me, but it is what it is, I'm not gonna get my panties in a bunch over it.

I'm not either, but I felt the need to get that out there right quick.

Now you understand how I feel about both Andersons.

Interesting lists. I didn't think there were too many surprises. The most for me were probably in the supporting categories where I was pleased to see Franco listed twice.

Not sure how you guys were tabulating, but I know people are always interested in some kind of Excel sheet to get an idea of who just missed the cut.

Surprises:
Unfortunately, a vote for the Coen Brothers is a vote for Intolerable Cruelty, Burn After Reading and The Ladykillers.
Hence why I didn't vote for him.

That shot used for 'Marisa Tomei - In the Bedroom' should be an animated .gif so we can watch what happens next.
I like the way you think.  ;D
