For The Siren

By Edward Copeland
Since Campaspe aka the Self-Styled Siren requested that I post how many first-place votes the various titles got in the survey, I thought I'd comply. Interestingly enough, thanks to the point system, the first-place finisher overall did not get the most first-place votes. I also decided because of other requests to just post the ranked list, sans art and quotes, for easy access and copy and pasting, if you so desire.

Thanks for posting these extras. Although I didn't vote, I've been following along for a while and I'm finding this whole thing rather fascinating.

Also: Whoever you are that voted for YI-YI in the number one spot, I love you forever. I think Yang should've gotten a Nobel prize for that film.
 
Thank you so much for this extra effort! as I expected, the no. 1 votes skew rather differently from the list. It gives an interesting picture of how the voting was distributed.
