With essays by me, Eric Harvey, Tom Ewing, Katherine St Asaph, Mike Barthel, Scott Plagenhoef, Nick Murray, Jessica Hopper, Michaelangelo Matos, Chris Molanphy, Andy Hutchins; ballots from 700 critics worldwide; and data crunching by the amazing Glenn McDonald. And fact-checking assistance from Martika Finch, Milo McBride, and Kevin Pierson, and web production by Camille Dodero and Nick Greene, and copyediting by Amanda Woytus.
You guys, I have wanted to do this ever since I was young. I didn’t know about the web then, of course. But thank you to anyone who ever lent me a shoulder or an ear or anything that helped me along the way. I owe all of you so so so very much.
