FYC: Best Director (based on body of work)
« on: March 24, 2010, 11:25:38 AM »
This post will be updated with any directors mentioned in the thread.
______________________

*Director Body of Work*
The Best Director category is a bit different.  We are looking for who you think are the best directors based on all their output from the decade, not just one film.  There are no restrictions as to who you can vote for, except that they have to have released at least one film during the 10 years (duh).  Please note: there are only 10 slots on your ballot for this category.

Ballots can be found here
