    Default The Greatest Actor/Actress Of All Time Tournament !

    Did you guys really think I'd let a year go by without concocting a film based tournament of some sort ?

    Like the title suggests, we'll be nominating and voting for the best actor/actresses gracing the medium of film, all eras (obviously).

    You know the rules :

    *There will be a total of 100 nominations
    *You may nominate one actor or actress per post
    *Please wait until 3 other people have cast a nomination before nominating another !

    That's it ! Also, please be sure to number your nomination so it's easier to sort once the list has been compiled. Once all 100 candidates have been named, the lovely Heather and myself will sort them into groups and begin posting them as they become available. Please feel free to express any questions in this thread !

    I'll start us off :
    What the hell happened here? It hasn't happened yet.

    I would have nominated about 30 European actors, but the experience has shown that they don't get anywhere anyway

    Yeah, that's why i haven't nominated that many of my personal favourite actors yet: so many are British and a lot are mostly involved in tv stuff anyway. I think the best example of this would be John Simm: whilst he's appeared in a few films, they're under-the-radar stuff, a lot of which even I haven't seen, and he's best known over here for his television roles. I do believe he is one of the greatest actors I've watched in recent years quite honestly, but I strongly doubt he'd last long at all in this tournament. Life on Mars didn't make it past the first round in the Greatest TV Show tournament, after all (a huge fucking shame, if ever there was one, but at least it lost to Arrested Development, which I have enjoyed).

    I hope we'll have another TV tournament, now that bears have a clearer picture

    Well, you might have a clearer picture Jean, but does anyone else? Well, I spose there's Pond, of course, and Heather didn't finish watching the show till afterwards. Honestly, I definitely don't want another tv tournament anytime soon. It still dissapoints me how much Doctor Who lost by, it was quite a significant difference. True, it lost to Python, but still. Don't want to see my favourite shows lose a 2nd time just yet!

    Well remember, that was just my top ten favourite comedies! List of my favourite shows ever? I'd have to think very hard about that one. Well, for anything after the top 2, at least.

    But, just to get this thread back on topic, I nominate:

    15. James McAvoy
