What this means is what it seems to mean every year: our method for finding the popular films in a consensus vote is pretty much right on.

And what does it mean? A couple of weeks ago, I wrote on my Facebook page that I thought, in the end, The Hurt Locker would win Picture, Director and Screenplay. But that was before Avatar became Avatanic (coined by reader Loyal and others).
