    every time i vote it says that one of my votes is "compulsory" and it's always the best choice, and no matter how many times i do it, it always says that i left it blank.

    Here's how I voted-

    Best Kill-
    Lurtz
    Reason: It is the most unforgettable.

    Best Death-
    Sean Bean (Boromir)
    Reason: Best acted.

    Most Appealing Grime-
    Viggo Mortenson (Aragorn)
    Reason: Strider is expected to look grimy.

    Most in Demand for TORn Karaoke Night-
    Dominic Monaghan (Merry)
    Reason: Never heard him sing.

    Best Exit-
    Elijah Wood (Frodo)
    Reason: Best acted and most touching.

    Most Emotive Eyes-
    Ian McKellen (Gandalf)
    Reason: He displays most of his emotion through his eyes.

    Best Eater-
    John Rhys-Davies (Gimli)
    Reason: He steals the scene.

    Most Elegant-
    Cate Blanchett (Galadriel)
    Reason: I could have said Legolas but somehow Galadriel got to me.

    Best Performance Heard but Not Seen-
    John Rhys-Davies (Treebeard)
    Reason: Sounds like how he looks.

    Most Highly Anticipated Added Footage on EE
    Christopher Lee (Saruman)
    Reason: It's the most noticeable gap in Return of the King.

    Best Performance in the Trilogy
    Sean Astin (Samwise)
    Reason: Most like how I imagined.

    Formerly Unknown, Forever Unforgetable-
    Orlando Bloom (Legolas)
    Reason: The female population says it all. And his acting talent shows he's more than a hollywood heart-throb.

    Most Likely to Win an Oscar Down the Road-
    Sean Bean (Boromir)
    Reason: Oscars usually go for the unknown. And as great as he is, Harrison Ford has never gotten an oscar.

    Spirit of Gandalf Award-
    Elijah Wood (Frodo)
    Reason: He did an Apple commercial. :halo:

    reason: I heard at an autograph session he was really kind to the fans, they were standing outside in the pouring rain and the guards wouldn't let them in and he made them let them in and then he stayed way past the time in order to get everyone.
