OK, then I pick the original Howling DVD cover. Not the SE, mind you. The original:

Ick... they should have just stuck with the original poster art like they did for the SE that came after. Posted Image

I've decided that instead of 1 auto and 3 nominations, etc., maybe everyone should get 4 autos and then we'll get started on Wednesday.

I'm counting all nominations to this point as autos (if this makes you want to change your nomination picks that's OK).

Get em in before Wednesday!
