What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
Here’s our second PeekScore list to tie-in with the 84th Academy Awards (you can see the first entry – wherein we rank the acting nominees – here). This time we take a look at the nominees for Best Director.
This list is comprised of three bona fide living legends (and, in our humble opinion, geniuses), a well-established, respected, and previously nominated helmer, and an Oscar newcomer.
As always, we’re not here to grade these men on their filmmaking skills, and we’re not offering odds on their Oscar wins or losses. We’re simply calculating and reporting on where these men stand in terms of the impact they’re each making here in cyberspace. All five have a presence here, but none greater than that of Mr. Allen, who as of this writing is brandishing our ultimate PeekScore of 10. It seems surprising at first glance, perhaps, but if you poke around the Web a bit, you do see that Woody, his life, and his work are mentioned throughout the ether with tremendous frequency; his recent spike in visibility due to awards season only solidifying his cyber-notoriety.
Are you pleased with the Academy’s choices? Who would you rather have seen nominated? Who do you think might win? Who do you think should? Let us know in the comments.
