Elab, I've PM'd you my votes as I won't be around until later tonight

I'm looking forward to how it turns out though!

EDIT: Just checked as I've been having problems with PMs lately and it hasn't appeared in my Sent folder. Has it reached you ok?

Slightly delayed start - catching my breath from sniping an auction! AND it also meant we now have an 8th set of votes as well - thank you Sadface

Liking that spirit Impqueen - I used to knit scarves and make flag cushions.

We should be kicking off around 7pm. Rebel, your votes will come up second last. I'll give you a shout and leave you a gap then if you're around


Cheers, at some point I'll need to make tea but I'll try to be around.

First up - votes from DENMARK. Denmark last won the contest with the irritatingly catchy Fly on the Wings of Love by the Olsen Brothers (I think the points were for the fireworks though). They like voting for Sweden though, so we like them. They also get major kudos for sending their votes under the heading 'this is Sadface calling'.

1 Death of Mr Lazarescu
2 Wild Strawberries
3 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days
4 Amelie
5 Wings of Desire
6 Come and See
7 Wallac and Gromit: The Wrong Trousers

8 The Secret of Kells

10 Pan's Labyrinth

and the top vote from the Danish jury goes to - Run, Lola, Run! A bottle of champagne for Rebel Scum, please.

Next up  - the votes from the Russian jury.

Russian have only won the contest once - an over-emoting Dima Bilan with an ice skater with a big nose. Tatu should have won as well but there was a bit of dodginess with the Irish vote. And let's just be glad the grannies didn't win this year. Best entry - probably Alsou's Solo. Their votes normally go to and from former parts of the USSR but as there are none in this contest, let's see where they did go. (Also, the full ''I'm an attention seeking drunk eeking out my time giving the scores opened these votes as well!)

1 TGTBTU
2 The Secret of Kells
3 Wings of Desire
4 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
5 Festen
6 Cremator
7 Death of Mr Lazarescu

8 Kanal

10  Wild Strawberries

and full marks from the Russian jury goes to - Pan's Labyrinth!

So how are we doing so far? 6 films have scores from both juries BUT only one country is seeing points for both films which may be crucial in this contest - Romania.

Still not a fan of 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days.

Also, I totally I want Germany to win if I don't. Because Wings of Desire is the bomb. And should win everything.

Speaking of which



Ireland has won the contest far too many times. They used to always give the UK 12 but then I think people starting blocking the phone lines. But the UK is still the country they vote for most. Followed by meeeeee. Which only goes to show that Ireland is excessively fond of the Abba knock-offs Sweden entered for years.

1 A Bout de Souffle
2 TGTBTU
3 A Cottage on Dartmoor
4 You, The Living
5 Kanal
6 La Dolce Vita
7 Pan's Labyrinth

8 Come and See

10 Wallace and Gromit: THe Wrong Trousers

and, as that hint from Movieaddict might have already revealed!, 12 points from the Irish jury goes to - Wings of Desire!
 
If Rebel has finished the first bottle you might want to pass another one across.

You sound like my husband. He spends the entire contest yelling about not helping them in the next fishing war etc.

The Czech Republic is a relative newcomer to the contest and does not have a very auspicious record I'm afraid. 3 entries, none in double figures in the semi and one nul points. Still - they keep trying.

1 The Return
2 The Wind That Shakes the Barley
3 The Saragossa Manuscript
4 Wallace and Gromit: THe Wrong Trousers
5 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
6 Death of Mr Lazarescu
7 Come and See

8 Kanal

10 A Cottage on Dartmoor

And, pass the champagne to me please - 12 points go to Wild Strawberries. Hurrah!

The UK has not been doing well of late. Former winners and semi-permanent number 2s the press have tended to blame johnny foreigner for fixing results rather than wondering if we've just been entering a load of tosh. The UK still likes to give lots of points to Ireland but Austria is closing fast.

1 The Return
2 The Wind That Shakes the Barlet
3 The Cremator
4 You, the Living
5 Run Lola Run
6 Secret of Kells
7 TGTBTU

8 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

10 Kanal

and full points - anyone surprised?  - to Amelie! Someone give Harry a drink.

With only 3 votes to go 2 countries still only have one film being voted for - Spain and Denmark. But many countries are doing well in one and not so well in the other. Apart from a couple. Can they maintain their lead?

I am surprised Cremator is doing relatively well, lack of Trains is sad.

Though only because I dislike those getting more votes.

Our next votes come from Poland. Poland started off brilliantly with a 2nd place but haven't done as well since. Which is a pity as Ich Troje were excellent.

1 A Cottage on Dartmoor
2 Closely Observed Trains
3 Wings of Desire
4 Wind that Shakes the Barley
5 Pan's Labyrinth
6 Cremator
7 The Wrong Trousers

8 A Bout de Souffle

10 Wild Strawberries

and 12 points goes to Come and See! A bottle to Qwerty!

*gif of a German flag*

Germany is often in the Eurovision song contest. I don't know how well they do because I don't care. Anyway,

1 The Cremator
2 Festen
3 Amelie
4 A Cottage on Dartmoor
5 Come and See
6 Wallace and Gromit in The Wrong Trousers
7 The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

8 Wild Strawberries

10 The Secret of Kells

And top marks go to the awesomeness that is Pan’s Labyrinth!

And finally - the country that made Eurovision famous. That gave the world the greatest of all Eurovision winners. That gave us the scary booted Herreys. The current title holderssh.

1 Amelie
2 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
3 Festen
4 Death of Mr Lazarescu
5 Closely Observed Trains
6 Pan's Labyrinth
7 A Cottage on Dartmoor

8 Wallave and Gromit

10 The Return

and 12 points from the Swedish jury go to the underground vision of hell that is KANAL. Pass the bottle to Rawlinson.

Did we have any nul points?

So, although Pan's Labyrinth has the highest individual score the lack of any votes for its partner film means it isn't the winner. In reverse order

3rd place RUSSIA

2nd place SPAIN

but, confounding current form and the fact that everyone hates them?

Winners of Empire Eurovision 2012 - THE UK!

Congratulations Gimli - a well balanced pair won the day and helped bring A Cottage on Dartmoor to a wider audience. Mr Asquith's new silent release will hopefully be of similar quality.
