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

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".
