NOTE: I haven't included couples where one person won for a short film only. As it is I've got 37, so I have to drop two.

Any suggestions as to who I should drop and why?

I know there has been a previous version of this topic but many of these couples were not included.

Thought: Maybe I should just do a "part 2" to that previous one and include only those who weren't in that last poll?

A lot of great (if some of them short-lived as a relationship) couples there, I especially like the Fran Walsh and Peter JacksonJames Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow and George Miller and Margaret Sixel.  

However my vote my go for Marilyn and Alan Bergman because I really, really love "Windmills of Your Mind", both the original version and the one Sting did for 1999 remake. And the lyrics they've wrote are practically flawless and some of the best out there in general.
