It's no contest. Louis Skolnick and Gilbert Lowell from "Revenge Of The Nerds(1984)" tops them all, in my humble opinion.

If I may make a suggestion: The title confused me. I thought you were talking about characters in movies that are nerds about movies, rather than nerds in movies. Does that makes sense?

Therefore I think the title "Nerds in Movies" would be less confusing.

And I think my vote'd be for Hermione Granger.

Many of these I don't consider nerds. Geeks, brains, dorks, etc. maybe. But not nerds.

Not nerds (in my book):
Alan Turing
John Nash
Lilly Moscovitz
Susan Cooper
Ellie Sattler (FOR SURE)
Harold Lee
Data
Peter Parker
Hermione Granger
Sherman Klump


And FYC:
Toby Radloff - American Splendor

Kyle, the Movie Redheads poll is inactive, so it might be best to remove the link. 

And did you see Jen's comment above?

Hey Jess,

Funny I was just looking at this list yesterday for the first time in who knows how long. I'll remove the link, as you're right it is inactive - but I think I'll keep a lot of the suggestions she said to remove, as I'm using "nerds" as an umbrella term which will encompass any dorks, geeks etc.
