Interference Movie Awards--VOTE NOW!!

Mods, please sticky this in place of the previous round.


Okay, this is open to EVERYONE. You didn't have to submit a ballot to participate in this final voting.

I had originally intended to do this by official Academy rules, which didn't work out too well. They are dealing with much more people, and had I used their system we would have had like 2 nominees in each category.

What I did was go through the ballots several times. A choice got 3 points if it was mentioned at #1, 2 points if it was listed at #2, and 1 point for #3. My original plan was to eliminate anything that didn't receive at least one #1 or #2 position, but I had to make one exception for that one. I was also forced to look at everyone's #4 slot for tiebreakers in several categories. I also eliminated anything that was only mentioned once.

Essentially, the 5 choices with the most points in each category were selected, though some have less than 5 because of a huge disparity. This was less scientific than I planned, and some of my decisions may have been a little arbitrary. I did not allow personal preference to affect anything here.

And now...the Official Ballot:

FINE.

Haven't seen There Will Be Blood yet though, so I'm unable to consider it in any categories.

I was hoping more votes would show up, but I'll have to go ahead with what we have.

Back shortly...

Alright, not as high of a turnout as I had hoped (which accounts for the likelihood of ties), but whatever. Perhaps it could have been handled differently through polls or something but there's always next year.

THE WINNERS:


Best Picture (tie):






Best Director:



Joel Coen & Ethan Coen, No Country For Old Men


Best Actor:



Daniel Day-FUCKING-Lewis, There Will Be Blood


Best Actress:



Ellen Page, Juno
