Hard to believe that this decade is coming to an end, it seems like yesterday that we were saying hello to 2010, and here we are, saying goodbye to 2019, the 2010s are over and with them a series of trends, cultural phenomena, events that made a singular difference on the field of entertainment. Let's call them 'era-defining events' for lack of a better word.

For which of these 'events' will you most remember the 2010s or do you think the 2010s should be most remembered for?

You could also add an option, Everything Old is New, and discuss the revival of movies and shows from the 80's/90's, like Star Wars, Terminator, Rambo, Rocky (Creed), Murphy Brown, Dallas, and Roseanne and such.  The 80's is back, due to Stranger Things or not, I hear more 80's stations on the radio in businesses now than ever.

I think that the issues of Mexicans and social networks are the most impressive for me.

2019 is definitely trying to outstage 2016 in terms of celebrity deaths... Which is rather unfortunate. :( 

A lovely, high-concept poll!

So sad to hear the Ric Ocasek died; weird because just a few days before I bought a Cars CD.

They still got it... the old school directors still have a few movies under their sleeves, the 2010s saw the nominations of many veterans from Woody Allen to Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood to Terrence Malick, making the decade perhaps the last link between the old and new generation.

Maybe 'the decade that Disney took over' based on the purchase of huge franchises, the launch of its own streaming service, etc.? I had the term Disneyfication in mind, but apparently it already exists and means something slightly different.

When Disney took over: the company is near-ubiquitous thanks to high-profile purchases including Marvel Studios and the Star Wars franchise, as well as remakes of its own classics and the launch of an own streaming service.

Jessica and ruby, you're always the ones noticing typos and suggesting changes, so I guess this poll needs a little push from you :)

Typos:
#2: speak up publicly about the abuse they were victim of
#5: (an honest mistake, so to speak)
#20: names like Cuarón, Iñárritu and del Toro became undeniable guarantees of cinematic excellence and creativity...

This is so good, ElM, which is no surprise, of cours, oh  poll-master. : ) Btw, just using the word "Him" cracks me up. There are so many good ones in this list so I'll have to continue deliberating.

May I suggest one edit to the intro? (in bold below: a semi-colon instead of a comma)

Hard to believe that this decade is coming to an end; it seems like yesterday that we were saying hello to 2010, and here we are, saying goodbye to 2019. Yes, the 2010s are over, but not over yet are the series of trends they left to us, cultural phenomena, events that made a singular difference on the field of entertainment. Let's call them 'era-defining events' for lack of a better word.

Thanks ruby, you've always been such an encouraging and kind person... and believe me these skills are more important than mastering the art of poll-making, though I'm not even sure I deserve that 'master' title, I kind of feel like one of the 'forgotten vets' right now lol

I don't know if I should add "Decade Ending Poll" in the title, I can't anyway... but I figured that's why that poll went unnoticed.

I don't understand, I really meant the show and that's your link is about, or should have I put the episode instead?

Anyway, it doesn't make a big difference, I'm glad the last of my "2010s ending" poll finally made it...

You used this code for the Simpsons: [tt0096697]
It should be [link=tt0096697]

Without the "link" it doesn't work in the poll.
