Interesting cat fight for Best Actress.
Three ingredients of all good stories are humor, suspense and psychology.

Is there a chance that this link could be posted at the top of the forums in place of the nominations thread that is still linked? I actually thought the voting thread was still MIA because the link (and link title) never changed.


And now I find that the voting is going to end in one day....that doesn't seem right to me, but perhaps I'm of a minority opinion.

Afraid I don't have power to change the headers at the top personally and mods don't always remember as there's lots of different polls and challenges. I'm happy to extend the deadline if you were planning to watch more before voting - say until the 5th?

I appreciate that this section of the board is easy to miss without the prompt at the top but I have tried to be consistent with the dates of the game (nominations open 1st of the month until 21st and vote 21st-end of month)

Honestly forgot who I voted for for the Best Actress category. Think maybe Gloria Swanson, because even though she was nominated, she wasn't as recognized by the Academy. Both Bette Davis and Gloria Swanson are in top form and they both deserve to win.
