Contest Results!!!

Sorry everyone, I totally neglected to post this yesterday! Anyway, the results of the first annual HEWWM Banner Contest are in, and the winner is...

Luke, from Journalistic Skepticism! Congratulations, Luke! And the "prize" you get for winning this is still TBD so if you have any ideas please let me know. :P

There were two pairs of eyes up above that absolutely nobody identified.

There were these...
Which belong to the lovely Marpessa Dawn in the Brazilian film "Black Orpheus", which is one of my favorites.
It makes sense that nobody got it, because the picture wasn't even the really "famous" one from the movie and it's obscure. I probably wouldn't have gotten it myself.

Then there was this animated pair:
Which I'm disappointed nobody got! It's Ashitaka in "Princess Mononoke". Some of you came close but nobody quite nailed it.

Here's a full listing of the banner in case you're interested, from left to right:

Coraline, Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Janet Leigh (Psycho), Kate Winslet (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)

Jack Black (School of Rock), Zooey Deschanel (500 Days of Summer), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Catherine O'Hara (Mighty Wind), Princess Mononoke
Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Marpessa Dawn (Black Orpheus), Tom Hulce (Amadeus), The Pale Man (Pan's Labyrinth)

Daniel Day Lewis (There Will Be Blood), Persepolis, Amy Adams (Junebug), Audrey Hepburn (Charade), Meryl Streep (Devil Wears Prada)


Anyway, congratulations again to Luke, and thanks to all of you who participated!!!!


  1. Hooray! (sorry I haven't gotten to you with the idea on that gracious prize of yours... SOON. I promise. :)

  2. Oh, well...good contest, anyway.

  3. Annie: thanks, and thanks for participating! :)

    Luke: Take your time! haha no rush at all. Congratulations again!

    Simon: Don't worry, there's always next time :P

  4. Dang! I wish I would've seen this contest. I love Black Orpheus.

  5. This Guy Over Here: Yea! I'm glad to hear someone else who loves it. You know, for a best foreign film winner, it's not very well known. The soundtrack is unbelievable as well.
