Nomination Battlez Lost:
Body Double,
Love Letter,
Moonrise Kingdom,
Passion of Joan of Arc,
Possession,
Scream,
Sherman's March,
Stop Making Sense,
---
we shall try again next time around the reel!

(also btw I nominated a handful of female directed joints ((and Brian De Palma filmz lmao)) that didn't make it thru, so I'm assuming most of us did and they were just too scattershot to have enuff for this round?)

Scattershot, yes, which is why campaigning and participation are so important.  Body Double got 2 nominations.  Basically, if a film got 3 nominations, it's in.  There were 96 films with 2+ nominations.  365 unique films nominated.

How many people voted in the end? It's kind of funny that even though it's a "favourites" list not a "best" list, a lot of the picks are fairly expected. I would imagine the final 20 will not be that different from most "best films" lists made by magazines etc., with maybe a handful of exceptions. Only two of my choices made it, although I'm happy they did as they're definitely near the top of my list (Morvern Callar and Fire Walk With Me). Congrats to Lynne Ramsay for being the only woman who made it, lmao. Kubrick, Anderson (obv), Lynch, Coppola, Von Trier and Tarantino have more films each on the list than women do in total. Looking forward to checking out the ones I've not seen.

13 participants in the first round.  I like to think of it as a favorites/best composite.

If nothing else, the list got me to check out MORVERN CALLAR so far.  An interesting film, to be sure, but it wouldn't crack my Top 500 at any point.

Seriously though, I nominated Moonrise Kingdom.  I think only one other person mentioned Wes Anderson.

I think i nominated two Shunji Iwais but I totally agree. For me Hong Sangsoo iz a master of naturalism. We lackin on foreign cinema picks defo, I texted one of my lurker friends that he shoulda shown up for Tarkovsky and I shoulda tried harder for Almodovar ~
