March Movie Madness 2009 - Final 4

Okay, after getting incredibly complicated in deciding to change up how I determine winners for the Final Four, I since decided to keep things the way I'd originally intended and just count the votes that were still alive. I apologize for the rigamarole; after thinking more about it, I decided that changing thing mid-tournament wouldn't exactly be fair. So thanks to those of you who responded to my emails, but in the end I didn't even tally them.

So... your Final Four.



REEVES REGION
Marlon Brando 8
Dustin Hoffman 6

KUCHER REGION
Paul Newman 5
Daniel Day-Lewis 8

LOHAN REGION
Meryl Streep 20
Jodie Foster 2

ANDERSON REGION
Katharine Hepburn 9
Audrey Hepburn 2

Brad extended his lead to 7 this round, but he's by no means run away with a victory. As a matter of fact, 5-6 people still have a chance of winning it all. So make sure you let Brad know he better be looking over his shoulder. Also of note is that Nancy has once again moved ahead of PJ...

Hey! How'd I get ahead of Peej again? That isn't gonna last. Anyway, Brando versus Day-Lewis is a no-brainer for me. Too bad I can't vote on that, LOL.

Jefe said...

Actually, Nancy, it will last (sorry PJ). Notice she got zero points in the last round. That means she's done -- none of her picks are still alive. So you moved ahead of her for good. Feel free to rub that in. ;-)

Eden said...

This looks good for me although I'm not sure my personal picks will best the hive mind ;)

delmer said...

Inasmuch as I picked solid, great, nay ... superior, actors and inasmuch as they won/lost based on popular vote here and inasmuch as I'm very near dead-last ... I can only assume the other participants of this game have no taste.

To suppose otherwise would suggest I know nothing of fine acting performances and, doggone it, I've just spent an hour on the phone with Tech Support, it's Friday and dreary out (too cold and windy to bike) and I need something in the way of validation. (I'm a simple man. I don't need a lot of validation ... otherwise I'd go out and save kittens from burning houses.)

Ah well. It was fun playing.

I'm with you Delmer since I've been at the bottom for this whole game. Although I'm finally seeing some momentum in my standings thanks to Meryl Streep.

O' Tim said...

Meryl Streep...Arrgh!

Natsthename said...

Meryl..the finest actor out there, no arrgh from me! (sure, she doesn't always choose parts well..but almost every one of the final four had missteps...Day-Lewis might be an exception)

Brad said...

My lead is all smoke and mirrors... Go Brando!

PJ said...

Shaddap "Jefe." Else you're GROUNDED.

Oh well, I may be a FFFC loser but I had fun! (Alan, you paying attention??)

And of course I'll play again.

Congrats to all the winners!
