Why did you use to have a ranked list and now don't? :blush: Poor Alien!
Yes, for the last 2 years my list was ranked and this year it wasn't...
It's simpe peep : if it was your #1 Ranked it meant 100 points for Alien
This year, you only voted
UNRANKED tt0078748 NA peeptoad 52,8996014

So that's 47 points "lost" for Alien.

If we take a look at Alien's Neigourghs ... It could have jumped 2 Rank Up

Metropolis Fritz Lang 1927 2645,207838 28
Goodfellas Martin Scorsese 1990 2629,32542 29
Sunset Blvd. Billy Wilder 1950 2608,956247 30
Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans F.W. Murnau 1927 2589,58376 31
Alien Ridley Scott 1979 2579,955235 32
Ran Akira Kurosawa 1985 2573,131829 33
Thanks, Tim. I'll probably revert to a ranked list next year. I just transferred my list from IMDB to ICM, updated it and just didn't have the time or energy to rank everything this year.

I wasn't interrogating anybody, I just honestly wondered if I was the only vote. If so, that's fine.

Ahhh

Time again to remind us all of the worst Oscar snub in history: 2014, when both Song of the Sea and Princess Kaguya, two of the undeniably greatest animated features of the 21st century, were ignored to give the prize to Big Hero 6. :facepalm:

In a non-pandemic year, I would certainly have seen it. And there's a reasonable chance, from what I know about it, that I will like or love it, so...maybe next year. This was the first year since I've been on this forum and updating my list every year in which I had no films from the previous year, and I hope that doesn't happen again.
