    Could you maybe arrange it so that the movie title is first? It's hard to read now when I'm trying to make a quick sweep to see if a movie and its characters are in there. It's only going to get worse as the noms increase. I know the emphasis is on the couple, but it helps the easier it is to see if a movie has already be taken care of.



    Nominate:

    Bonnie & Clyde - Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow

    Fight Club - Marla Singer & Tyler Durden

    Kalifornia - Adele Corners & Early Grayce

    The People vs. Larry Flynt - Althea Leasure & Larry Flynt

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Arwin & Aragorn




    Second:


    Alvy Singer and Annie Hall (Annie Hall)
    L.B. Jeffries and Lisa Fremont (Rear Window)
    H.I. and Ed (Raising Arizona)
    Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
    Kyle Reese and Sarah Conner (The Terminator)

    Lew - Humbert and Lolita are already nominated, I counted your nom as a second.



    Done.

    I've also decided that voting will be in two categories: Most Memorable/Interesting, and Cutest Couple. This will work a bit like George's "multi-criteria tournament".

    I've seconded some of the noms, and will probably be adding more noms soon. Keep 'em coming!
