What’s the best movie kiss of all time?

What makes a really great Hollywood kiss?

I’m trying to find out. And I want you to FIGHT TO THE DEATH (well, not literally) for your favourite.

I’m currently writing a book I’m not allowed to talk about yet, and, yes, it involves kissing. For it, I need insight into what *you* like out of a kissing scene, and why. So, I asked the wonderful hive-mind of Twitter what your favourite movie kiss is.

A LOT of you had MANY OPINIONS and I’m delighted to reveal the longlist….

“Don’t YOU, forget about me… *AIR PUNCH*”

Upsidedown. Rain.

This is what happens when you let people vote for things…

“It wasn’t over, IT STILL ISN’T OVER.” …and, with that, every girl dies a little inside, whenever she kisses someone who isn’t Ryan Gosling

Proof that head-clutching is not a heteronormative kissing phenomenon

Before the bees came… 

Holly, how the hell did you come up with this list?

There were too many nominations to fight them all to the death. This longlist was made up of each kiss that was nominated more than once.

What’s going to happen now?

Apart from all of us feeling dissatisfied by our own romantic lives? Well.. I’m going to randomly pull two kisses out of a hat (ASDA bag) and then pip them against each other on Twitter. Check the #BestMovieKiss hashtag once a day to make sure you can vote for your favourite.  

This is sudden death. If a kiss doesn’t win a Twitter poll, it’s out. We keep going until we get a WINNER.
