They do post a preliminary to gather nominations.

However, IIRC the nominations were suppposed to be 'historical' and not fictional.

So . . . we have Arthur? Right . . .

and it appears nominations were not all included. I nominated T.E. Lawrence but . . . didn't make the list.

not that it matter much in the end.
