** 11 Newsarama contributors submitted their lists for their personal Top 20 in each of the five categories. The results were tabulated using a weighted system that awarded an escalating number points according to how high the nominee appeared on the list - 20th place was worth 1 point, 19th place 2 points ... up to 20 points for 1st place.The final nominee lists for round 1 are the top 16 nominees with the highest point totals in each category. Each bracket is seeded according to point total, with the highest vote-getter in each bracket moving onto the next round. The winners of Round 2's polls will go head-to-head in the final round to see who will be crowned champion. There will be 3 total rounds for each category (the “Sweet 16”, “Final Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2009”.
