After a full week of rigorous voting, page-making, bracket-designing, social media-ing, etc., it turns out that it was all pretty much a waste of time. Of course Star War was going to win. We could have saved so much time, just gone on Google, downloaded a still from the film, popped it up on the site with the title "Best Space Movie." The results would have been the same.
Having said that, it was quite fun to do this, wasn't it? We hope to do something like this again in the future, and your participation made it clear that it's something worth making a staple on the blog, so once again thank you for taking the time to vote. Though it did turn out to be pretty much a no-brainer champion, Alien started off the day of voting strongly, gaining a commanding lead before Star Wars surged back for the win with 75% of the total votes. Guess the nerds slept in on Friday.
As far as the contest goes, the winners have been contacted via email. Apologies to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, our original winner and runner-up; those emails were returned with errors. Maybe next time.
Once again, thank you so much for voting. Keep listening.
