Well I'm bored so I've come up with list of most nominated favourite films. One point per nomination. Here are the leaders.

Godfather I & II - 6
Pulp Fiction - 4
American Beauty - 3
Gone with the Wind - 3

And then there's a whole heap of films with 2 votes. Keep voting everyone and when there's a clear 5, maybe I can turn this into a poll ;)
