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.

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)

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!
