    Hey, only two votes...looks like a legitimate excuse not to update!

    1. Kate Winslet (My God, how is she not winning????)
    2. William Daniels (I couldn't care less about him, but he's moving on anyway.)
    For my 3 & 4 spots, I am using this decision matrix:
    IF TIEBREAKERS ARE DETERMINED BY WHO HAS MORE FIRST-PLACE VOTE:
    3. Julianne Moore
    4. Anne Hathaway
    IF TIEBREAKERS ARE DETERMINED BY WHICH HAS BEEN VOTED OVER THE OTHER ONE MORE:
    3. Anne Hathaway
    4. Julianna Moore

    So Kate Winslet wins it. Kapeesh?

    1. Henry Fonda (Kinda epic, and yes very classic.)
    2. Emma Stone (The next big thing.)
    3. John Hurt (The Elephant Man.)
    4. Steve Martin (Whoever he is.)

    Um...I don't think that's legal...but I'll allow it this time. Next time, you'll have to pick...and with three votes that means I'll update tonight. HOORAY!!!

    EDIT: Nope, too much homework. Tomorrow maybe.

    Well, I could have asked you the question, waited for you to answer, and then voted, but I figured this would be faster. By the way, what IS the answer to the question?

    Normally, its determined by who has the most first place votes, but in case neither of them has been placed in first place or has been placed in first place the same amount, it will go to whoever was ranked higher more consistently.

    2. Oldman (Funny how there's two Best Actor noms in the match....)
    3. Olivier (.... and a guy for whom Branagh was nominated for playing. Still, I've seen much less of Olivier than the above two.)
    4. Keith David (Good, but get serious.)
