*Voters may rank between 10-12 choices.

For 11: First 8 are ranked with an additional 3 that are worth 1 point each.

For 12: First 8 are ranked with 4 additional, however #8 will be worth 2 points instead of 3.

I think I've got my top 2 votes from the list of possibilities already, but I doubt I'll be the one nominating them.

Farin, I'm surprised to see you pick a movie so far before your time :thumbsup:

Why not just vote our top ten (or twelve) from the list? I mean, just picking 2 from all those winners seems excruciating to me.

With 81 nominations, that would mean the #1 only getting like 25 points or so. That list needs to be reduced by around half for this to work properly. I'm sure all the good / popular choices will be nominated.

When do nominations close?

I'll probably close them after around 30+ noms are in. I'm waiting to see if some of the others are going to participate or not.

Your first two picks are eligible choices, thank you.
