Hey MAthePA,

Just a heads up but it does look like the list links are currently set to private.

Taylor, thank you.

After 5 different variants had tried, I waited more than 20 hours for this up. Was close to delete them because no reason explained 8/
It would be great to have a short explanation e-mailed automatically, something like this:

If a poll's name tends to similarity, I could possibly use another title like "...Amazon Studios Original Production..." but "Amazon Original" is a shorter official term. The contents and emphasized subjects are very different. The polls of Dibyayan are not structured at all, they are "all in" including things that are hard to compare for voting: fiction vs. documentaries, investigation vs. Reality TV, R-rated vs. kids audience -- ALL these in one pot. Plus mentioned "distributed by Amazon". 

I believe the three polls coming hand by hand for Amazon original production, the concept introduced here for three audiences of different interests (I'm not going with 4th poll for kids) is purely better, and hard to be "similar". 

Anyway, I was going to try the young production company, and if my poll stops as a "similar" one, no problem -- I'll do the same qualitative poll for Netflix. But it would be really good to understand and know for sure: where the measures of similarity end and who divides them?

No no, I just said that I made only the Amazon TV series poll, not the others that you made.

Yes, yes, just compare them - one by one, or 2 to 2 - no matter how.

I don't think there is a big difference between what Dibyayan calls original series distributed by Amazon and what you (or Amazon) call Amazon Originals. Look at the IMDb data for some of the titles in your lists:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3498622/...
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4614612/...

Amazon invested in them, no doubt, but "Amazon Originals" is just branding, no?

I'd like a poll about the movies, but actually "distributed by" seems like a clearer criterion for a list.

I wonder how you always contribute such data (tt3498622):

Peter see here for Amazon Originals. They are a separate category.

https://www.amazon.com/s?i=instant-video&bbn=16549083011&rh=n%3A2858778011%2Cn%3A16549083011...



And this is how many pages there are of originals.

Amazon Studios distributes almost 13,000 movies, and only some two hundred are "Amazon original" separated from others by the official label. I believe Amazon needs no cheating, they are enough successful to further create their own success.

My lists for these polls are based on the official Amazon list, and the best titles are selected based on IMDb as well as Amazon Prime ratings.

Interesting. Then let's take The Handmaiden, the first on your list:

"Park Chan-wook’s 'The Handmaiden' Finds a Home at Amazon"

Peter, please consult the author (https://www.indiewire.com/author/zack-sharf/) what he had meant in that article before the first release. And having his answer, then you are armed to attack the official list of Amazon Original (Foreign & International). As you can see, I have not included those foreign products which production had been started before 2013, to prevent a mixed content (original vs. bought rights including franchise).

Ed, I'm not saying it's not a category on Amazon's site. I'm saying it's not necessarily a sign that it's an Amazon production, as MA said.

If it is one thing I have learned is that MtP's research is almost never wrong on Titles.
He has always given me solid info about movies and TV.

I did not dispute that Amazon calls them Amazon Originals.

I agree that it's branding and that "distributed by" is more precisely accurate. I think, for brevity's sake (and because, these days, pretty much every distributor, from Netflix to IFC to Amazon and beyond, intentionally conflates distribution with production and more), "Amazon Original" is ok for the title. Perhaps adding "distributed by" in the intro is a good idea, though.

This triple poll is themed on what "Amazon Studios present". Such kind of films is easy to recognize as having "Amazon Original" or "Prime original" (the former variant) label on the official posters. And no matter what on a poster, those are presented separately on the official site under the "Amazon Original" categories. I don't want to insinuate the voters with wrong idea that all the distributed products are covered to compile the best for the poll. The title describes enough for understanding the correct idea, and the question is straight for voting. Thanks.

A line of introduction explaining what Amazon Original means to the uninitiated would not hurt.

Peter, do you need something more explained to this:
https://www.imdb.com/amazon-originals/ ?
Or do you mean that IMDb has explained less than enough?

I haven't seen any of the TV series or documentaries but I would really like to see several of both, esp. the docs about David Lynch and the New Yorker.'Some very good movies on the film list. My vote would go to 'Paterson.'
