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.

I voted for them, but of those 3 I've only seen Intolerable Cruelty. The hardest name to not include on my director's list was Herzog because he's an all-time favorite but Grizzly Man was the only of his films this decade that I totally loved.

I'm not sure how much bad films from directors weighed in to my calculation compared to quantity of good films. Sure, if two different directors had two great films (M. Night and John Cameron Mitchell for example) but one had a number of bad films while the other had none (well, no other films period), the latter will get the vote. But if it is someone like Sodeberg who had say five films that I liked, even with five I didn't like, he'll get favored over the one with the better "net".

toro913, flieger, and worm@work's lists are the ones that have the most votes that only each of them and I have in common.  With a few votes that the three of us have in common.  I don't think there are any votes that appear on all four ballots.

jbissell is another kindred spirit when it comes to performances.

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 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.

As your BFF I will ignore this.

I think it would be nice if the people who've chimed in with comments along the lines of "didn't like it"/'hated it"/"shouldn't be on the list" post up their ballots.

I believe I posted every single one of my ballots when I sent them in.

I know you guys did, but there are quite a few who haven't.

Just saying, I'd prefer it if ballot posting remained in the relevant FYC threads and not in any of the general discussion threads.
