Default The Best Actors Tournament

(Go to page 3 for the first match up)

Rules:

Vote for who you believe to be the better actor. If you want to take into account awards, you can, but it's not mandatory.

64 participants, each round will end after 20 votes.

#16 seeds will be decided by four 8-Man mini tournaments. The first round will be 7 votes to win. Round 2 will be 10 and Round 3 will be 15. Two seperate battles will be taking place at the same time during the first and second rounds.

The rules are flexible so feel free to suggest a change.

If anyone wants to help me set up the brackets and run this, just pm me. I may be busy when a battle is decided and will be unable to post the next one so that can be helpful.

There was a thread like this, but it was for actors and actresses. I think that's what this should be as well. I understand that this thread is separate from the "Hotties" thread, but it seems wrong to have a tournament that only recognizes actors when there isn't a place to recognize actresses based on ability. Having a thread for guys where they are judged by skill (basically) and a thread for gals where they are judged only by their looks seems kind of messed up.

Up to you though. Just letting you know about the old thread.

How about a best actors thread and a best actress thread since that's how the awards do it?

Sure, actresses are welcome as well

Or someone can make an actresses thread. But the problem with including actresses is that some may vote based on hotness if two women are paired up, and we already have a thread for that

Fair enough, if someone wants to do an actress thread they are free to anyway.

So I don't know, we can include actresses in here or have another one for them, whatever you guys prefer.

In your lists, the max is 30 and there is no minimum. So whoever gets listed the most will get top seeds

Ok I decided not to include women in this tournament, we can have one based on acting ability for them in another thread. So, keep posting/sending the lists guys!

Yeah have a separate thread for the women, and based on their acting ability. And so you can have the likes of Meryl Streep. The only thing is, for both threads, how do you judge on their acting ability since in some films they act better than in others?

For example, Clint Eastwood has been nominated for Best Actor (I think for Million Dollar Baby) before by the Academy, but he's clearly not that great an actor and plays mostly the same roles in most of his films. Some people have had just one or two good movies where they've really shone.

I guess its just based on opinion. There is no perfect way to determine who's the best actor ever, this is just something I wanna do for fun.

I'd put each Actor in their best light and decide that way. Unless you have someone like Dicaprio who just owns every role he plays.....then I feel you can be a bit biased

Yeah, like I said in the other tourney. If you have a hard time deciding, just look at the best performance of one against the best performance of the other and decide that way

Also, Im thinking of naming each bracket after a superhero. So it would be Batman, Spidey, Superman, and then a fourth one

Actually, this gif reminds me, is this movie actors only, or can it include TV actors? If it's the latter, I'd like to nominate Bryan Cranston.

So are you going to start this tournament instead of just talking about it?
