MD Poll: Atone the Tale ...

"Gee, and I thought Jack Sparrow looked weird ... "

Ouch ... I think I sprained my "punny" bone with that post title ...

In the double feature polls last week that asked you to predict what Golden Globe nominated Best Pictures will triumph come January 13, Movie Dearest readers selected Sweeney Todd as the clear victor of the Comedy or Musical category, with over 40% of the total 140 votes. Things were a bit closer for the Dramatic contenders though, with Atonement narrowly edging past No Country for Old Men; even with seven nominees, these two films combined netted 80% of the total 155 votes.

And I agree. With the most nominations, Atonement will likely end up with the top prize, while the Coen brothers will get the Best Director trophy. And being the only nominee with a corresponding director nod, Sweeney should slay the competition in his category.

For the full rundown of this week's results, see the comments section below. And be sure to vote in this week's MD Poll, a look ahead at 2008.
