"Induced" is not the right word. I think "introduced" is better.

And "defined a generation".

Peter "added into IMDb's Top 250" is better.

No introduction really takes place.
I introduced it to the list. The list replied "Hello, Glad to meet you"?!

Thanks for the corrections. I changed "defined" and "added into".

“Bohemian Rhapsody”

The new “A Star Is Born” is a been there, done that before type of deal. Come awards time, it will probably be viewed as such while BR is new and fresh as a biopic.

I think Straight Outta Compton was far more compelling than BR. So why such different fanfare from the Academy?

I can't believe I haven't seen either yet but I plan to this weekend so then I can vote. :)

Because it's a face-off, it can't be considered for the homepage :( so I guess it's not too important but IMDb likes titles to be standardized: Movies in ' single quotation marks' and TV series in "double  quotes "

Great and timely face-off.

'A Star Is Born' should probably also have a capital I.

Thanks Ruby. Face-off or not my polls are rarely considered for front page status. But that's no reason to not have them as perfect as possible. I have added the quotation marks.

Pencho15,

Thanks for updating the title of your list. I updated the title of this thread accordingly.

The poll software can use polls with less than five (5) choices. However, the IMDb Editors in charge of the IMDb Home Page determined that polls with 4 or less choices do not meet the editorial guidelines for the IMDb Home Page. In other words, the IMDb Editors will not use a poll with less than 5 votes for the IMDb Home Page.

I definitely agree, Pencho, that polls should be as well-constructed and polished as possible; I just didn't want to be obnoxiously pushy about the punctuation, lol. Now that I know that we're kindred spirits about poll details, I won't be so cagey. :)

And thanks for adding the quotation marks.
