    Meryl Streep - I know that this is a Star Wars board, but anyone who is voting against Meryl Streep is terribly off-the-mark. Meryl has been nominated for more Oscars than any other actor or actress in Academy history.

    Thanks for mentioning this. Something of the same sort happened in the last round when Natalie Portman beat out Bette Davis. Davis won two Oscars and had been nominated eleven times. She is also one of the greatest movie actresses ever!

    Excuse me. Is this contest about which actor we think is the best, or the actor that the people who give out Oscars think is the best?

    If you honestly think that the Star Wars actors are better, than that is who you should vote for. When I see that the greatest actress of all-time looses to an actor whose film roles are few and far between, I get the impression that some of our voters haven't seen enough films to make a proper judgement.


    Anywho, my votes for this round:


    Alec Guinness

    Brad Pitt

    Tim Robbins - gosh, this was hard. Alan Alda is also amazing, but the fact that Tim stares in my favorite film The Shawshank Redemption puts him over the top.

    Daniel Day-Lewis




    :cool: Mace Windy,

    Okay, fair enough. I agree with you that many people who voted for the Star Wars actors either are very biased or haven't seen anything with the other actor in it. Take Hayden Christiansen for example. If he had been up against an actor that not many people on the boards had heard of (i.e. well before they were born) then I wager he would have gotten more than the no votes he got. However, you shouldn't assume that everyone voting for Star Wars actors is doing so simply because they know them and they don't know the other person. I'd be interested to hear how many people in here haven't heard of Meryl Streep. As you said, she's supposedly the greatest actress ever (as we are repeatedly told) and yup, she's still kicking, so I guess we can't blame her loss on her non-existence. Personally, I have seen just as many Streep films as I have seen McDiarmid films, and while I certainly have no illusions about McDiarmid being the greatest actor of all time I cannot for the life of me understand why Streep gets the press she does.

    So basically, you can now call me stupid instead of ill-educated. :p

    I'd expect that, out of all people, a former prequel movie forum mod should be able to realize that two people can see the same movies and have greatly differing opinions of the actors and their acting skills.

    Anyways...
