Stats and Trends

The 2007 Cue Awards featured some of the closest competition to date.  In one category, the difference from winning and losing was a mere .01 points! As you will see below, for many categories, it only took one judge keep any one nominee from winning.  A special accomplishment worthy of mentioning here, was achieved.  MICHAEL GIACCHINO was nominated in all three sub-genre categories for 2007:  FEATURE FILM (Ratatouille), TELEVISION (Lost), and VIDEO GAME (Medal of Honor: Airbourne).  That's quite a year, yet ironically he lost to James Newton Howard for Outstanding Composer of the Year.  Still, special recognition should go to Giacchino for being the first composer to accomplish this feat.  Below you can see some of the more interesting stats and trends from this years voting/rating.  On the following page, you can see all of the judges' voting for each nominee.

As you can see, this year Mr. Judge C was the most generous of the lot.  Mr. Judge A was the most ... reserved.  It also appears as though Judge A was the most in-sync with the average-visitor rating with only a 42 rating-point difference. Judges B and D were clearly in sync, having the same average rating. 


Oh there's much more of the Wrap Up...
