POLL RESULTS: The KT Community Best Film of 2017 is….


While it was challenged, Dunkirk lead the way in the voting for the 6th Annual Killing Time Community’s Best Picture, and managed to hold off an early charge by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and a surprising late onslaught by Wind River to give Christopher Nolan his second win in six years.  The story of this year’s poll may well be just how divided people were over what the best film of last year was.  Out of 15 nominees, 13 received votes, and though Dunkirk won, it did so with only 21.43% of the vote, the lowest winning percentage of any champion in the six years of the poll.  Finishing a surprising second was Wind River with 17.86%.  Wind River, while fantastic, hasn’t really figured in to any awards talk, and didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi broke the Star Wars winning streak and finished third with 10.71%.  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, finished fourth with 8.93%, and Get Out and Wonder Woman tied for fifth place with 7.14%.
