What you see here is our first concerted year-end effort to peer inside the city’s cultural hive-mind: We polled 153 people—actors, musicians, museum directors, even a columnist or two—on what they loved, hated, and avoided in 2007. Should Wikipedia entries be amended from these results? Um, no. In many cases, a “winner” got all of twenty-odd votes. Not everyone answered every question, a few picks came out late last year (see The Lives of Others), and of course only movie critics have seen all of 2007’s films yet. But think of this as a mini Oscars/Tonys/Grammys/Pulitzers. Or at least the Golden Globes.
