Emmy Aftermath - how to fix the Emmys?

"Personally, I'm opposed to capping wins or even nominations, even if seeing Modern Family win year after year drives me up the walls. I think it look punishing to the winners, instead of addressing the real issue, which are the voters and the voting system, and how even as things change and get more diverse and they try to catch up, they still don't vote that outside that box at all. It still takes that little aura of prestige for different shows to break in, and there is such a gap between what's great and what's awards-material." - Tee

What is this list?

...a "greatest of all time list" or a list meant to reflect consensus. For example: The Godfather (1972) is a great film and deserving of its classic status. You'll get no argument for me. But because I have no true personal connection to it, it does not appear.

... it is also not a list about recent films. I believe in allowing films a decade to settle first. This list covers films made up until 2001. In the next update of the list films from 2002-2004 and later might appear. I plan to update it every 3 years IF and only if i actually ever complete it.

...a list detailing the movies that have had the greatest effect on me as a cinephile, whether because of the time frame I saw them in, how often I think of them, or due to the things that they taught me about movies and my relationship to them.

...a list of movies I love because of but usually beyond their merits.

For a clue as to the movies that might appear... the "top ten" pulldown menu looks at films by year.
