To recap quickly: on my personal ballot, I got 16/24… so I passed (even after picking against Woody Allen and making two other decisions I knew were not that smart). And on the ballot I told others to take, I got somewhere between 17 and 20 out of 24. It all depends on which way you want to grade Doc. Short, Doc. Feature and Animated Short. Still, not bad. Full recap on all the categories tomorrow.
