Yay:
Bright Star for Cinematography!
4 Months, In America, Synecdoche, Volver and Yi Yi made the big list!
Marisa Tomei!!! PSH! Penelope! Stuhlbarg!

Boo:
No In the Bedroom or A Serious Man for Best Film.
No White Ribbon, but especially for Cinematography.
No Eureka anywhere. I know it's difficult for many of you to find, but please keep looking!


Here's how I did [skipping soundtrack and score]:

Film: top tier 13/20, second tier 14/33
Documentary: voted for 2, both made the list
Animated: voted for 15, 12 are on the list
Foreign Language: 11/20
Cinematography: 9/20
Supporting Male: 10/20
Lead Male: 9/20
Supporting Female: 8/20
Lead Female: 10/20

How should I put this...I don't want to sound full of myself, but my quote for PTA is clearly the best quote out of the bunch here. Just saying...

Wow, that sounded really arrogant.
"Time is the speed at which the past decays."

Most interesting is Greengrass... it's not as if he released any films from the time this top 100 was constructed (late 2008), and yet his love among us seems to have grown in a big way.

Similar story for Cuaron.

I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

A Scanner Darkly did not even make our TOP 100 animated films which was compiled in the summer of 2009. Maybe it wasn't eligible. And Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs had not been released yet I guess. Team America also appears to have been ineligible. Fantastic Mr. Fox had yet to be released.

Knowing how much you love Vicky Christina I think you'd dig Volver 'noff.

Curious. I'll certainly add it to the queue.

These presentation posts are terrific.  Great work!

Also, fyi, in the cinematography post, The Fountain has the images from Sunshine.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
