by Jay Cluitt · May 12, 2016 · Poll · 4 Comments

It’s time to announce the winner of the Female Directed Movie Draft! A few weeks ago Mette, Nikhat, Nicole, Todd and Jay all got together and competed to assemble the greatest team of movies directed by women, and since then the LAMB community has voted on who created the best team. You can listen to the podcast on it here. So, the team that gathered the most votes belonged to… Nicole!

Nicole’s team of Boy’s Dont Cry, Bend It Like Beckham, Girlfight, Pet Semetary, Love & Basketball and Look Who’s Talking just about knocked Jay’s team into 2nd place over the past few days, making her the winner. Congratulations Nicole!

Here’s the full voting breakdown:

    Figures that Nikhat and Mette would have the least amount of votes, considering that their lists actually contain the best movies.

    Granted, Jay’s team has the BEST film (Lost in Translation), but as collective groups, Mette and Nikhat tower here.

      I like that the film you single out as the best on my team is easily my least favourite, though granted it’s been a while since I’ve seen it. And Mette and Nikhat may have had the better films (in all honesty I’ve only seen 4 of their picks, total) but they got less votes probably because less people have seen them.

      As we discussed on the show, this wasn’t so much about winning the draft as much as it was highlighting female directors and their films, we just happened to cram it into our regular draft format.

    No love for Zero Dark Thirty or Point Break!!!! Those would have been my top two choices hands down!

      I was pretty shocked no-one picked Point Break, though personally I’m not a fan. I didn’t love ZDT either, hence my pick of The Hurt Locker.
