Anyway, I hope I am not too disappointed by the Top 5 winners. I hope at least 1 movie I voted for makes it.
I kinda feel the same way. If at least one I voted for makes it, I'll be satisfied. I hope for more than just 1, but we'll see. There WERE 150 to choose from, after all. And tastes vary.

Well now that voting has concluded and the results will be posted shortly, I have a couple of questions.
1) How will the results be posted? Will only the 5 winners be displayed, will the entire list of 150 nominated pieces of conted be shown in ranked order so that the person dead last (me) can be mocked and publicly humiliated, or will there be an in-between of the top 20 or 50 or so?
2) Will the five winners and possibly a handful of runners up-get awards for their pieces and/or profiles?
On the page of the movies/games, you mean? That's a good idea, actually. In the author's profile as well wouldn't be too bad of an idea, but especially on the flash entry pages, if nothing else.
As for 1)... well, if Tom only announces the top 5, I think a lot of people are going to be clamouring for more info. Sure, if you were #6 or #7, it might hurt to have missed it by THAT much, but... even us non-author voters would simply like to see how the things we voted for did (unless we happened to nail the top 5, of course, in which case... CREEPY!).
On the other hand, if Tom ranks the entire 150... the bottom of the list is going to be a lonely place to be (though being nominated, of course, is still a big honour... I mean... A) your flash wasn't blammed, B) your flash got a good score, C) not only did it get a good score, it either got a daily top 5 award or was on the frontpage, D) as a result, it was nominated for the top 5 of February... it's kinda a win-win situation, yanno? Don't feel bad if you're nowhere near the top, man... you still did damned well to be on that listing of flash that we got to vote on!).
So... in short, I would like to say that your top 20, top 50, or whatever listing... is the best of both worlds. It provides a little extra info for all curious parties than just a top 5 listing would provide... and at the same time, if you're not on the listing but were nominated, you're not exactly alone. A majority of the flashes would be left out of the listing, so... yeah.
I'm hoping for the top 50, but even a top 25, 20, or 10 would be better than just the top 5.
All we can do is wait... and be surprised. Like I said before. #;-}>
