    Well you don't have to worry about the all King final anymore. It looks like it will only be Shawshank left after this round.

    I guess not. My fears were unwarranted, although it's not over yet.

    A 3-vote separation for Fargo, not likely The Green Mile can come back now.

    I'm a "motherfucker" because I misjudged how this vote was going and because a movie I didn't vote for might upset a better movie?

    Still tied... Still two days to go but 30 votes cast, I think our biggest turnout yet. Hopefully we end up with 31. Who hasn't voted yet?

    Guys, this is not funny. We have 24 hours to break the tie. If we go with stated votes, it seems Fargo may have an edge but it's not clear.

    I voted for The Green Mile. Hopefully we can find someone who hasn't voted yet to come in and break the tie.
