    List updated. I think I'll cap the lists when we hit twenty films per decade - this won't be a conventionally-run tourney so there's no need to adhere to the usual numbers. So far we have thirteen 30s films and fourteen 40s films. Keep 'em coming!

    Edit: come tomorrow morning, everyone who's partipated thus far gets two more noms and secs per decade.
