Wait a minute.. Where is "Streetcar Named Desire" in the Best film nom? Oversight or the producer has done something illegal that warranted its disqualification. By looking at "Storm Warning" nom I guess it might be the former or case of bribery.

I will reserve my vote until response.

Thought t was having the best chance of pulling the Grand Slam, although Hitch might play spoilsport..

EDIT: There is no "Ace in the Hole" as well.. Man, That's my #1, #2 gone.. I smell a conspiracy.. :ph43r:

EDIT 2: Aaaaaaaaand, there is no place for "Place in the Sun" as well. :folded:

Okay I've found my error. It only affect the first 3 films alphabetically (A Place in the Sun, A Streetcar Named Desire, Ace in the Hole).

NEW POLL ADDED at the bottom. Please re-vote if you voted already. Sorry for the mess-up.

All three made the cut and have been added. The unlucky films to miss out are The Browning Version, Miracle in Milan and Scrooge.

Surprisingly Storm Warning still makes it, but with probably one of the lowest tallies ever to get on the shortlist (fewer players than usual I guess, perhaps it's a weak year)

I thought something seemed odd there but I thought maybe people didn't like Streetcar that much :P

Because I confused it with The Mortal Storm. :wacko: But doesn't matter much, I still would have voted for it, although maybe a spot or two lower.

Results up tomorrow. Did everyone vote on the re-run of Best Picture (my mess-up)? It's at the very bottom of the polls, if you missed it.
