Hey, it's surprisingly hard to find high resolution landscape images that have the show title in them. Did you notice my terrible MS PAINT job on the How to with John Wilson image?

The time has finally come. We're down to the final two. It's an established veteran and future all time great versus a relatively new plucky upstart backed by a multinational megacorp hell bent on taking over the world.

Announcement
Now. It wouldn't be 2020 without something going wrong.

In a call back to the 2017 Oscars, upon constructing the final post today, I realised one of the ballots got missed (i'd like to blame the user for not checking the linked post in the OP, but really, it's on me).

This didn't affect too much (nothing in the Top 10 was affected), but there is some changes to the Top 30 (another example of the power of The Vote people).

This resulted in:
-We Are Who We Are being bumped from the top 30 (I'll leave it there for prosperity)
-A new show entering the top 30
-A show in the top 30 being bumped up the list

I'll post a final list later, as well as provide a post for the new show (and updated artwork for the other show).
I'll also update the vote numbers of all entries.

I won't be updating the artwork or position numbers of all the affected shows, but the proper results will be reflected in the final results.

I know it would be easier and cleaner if I just ignored it and never told anyone, but I'm a stickler for accuracy.

Apologies to all.

Overall I am surprised that Upload didnít place higher, I guess I was more impressed with it than most.

I donít follow the Breaking Bad cinematic universe so I had no idea that Better Call Saul was such a big deal, just as with BB I can tell that it isnít for me, but the more shows the merrier.

It probably got hurt by airing earlier in the year.

But yeah, you might also be more impressed than most. Trying to find quotes for the show was always damning with faint praise along the lines of "I thought this was going to be terrible, but somehow it just worked"
