    For the ninth Census tournament, we'll choose our favorite winner of the "Best Picture" Oscar from the last 64 years*.

    Tournament Rules

    The bracket has been generated at random
    Read the latest posts to make sure you are voting on the current bracket.
    The initial rounds will have two brackets open for approximately 24 hour at a time.
    Please do not vote more than once using socks.
    All decisions of the Tournament Director are final.

    * just like the NCAA now does, we'll have a "play-in round".

    And if you haven't seen some of these, use it as an excuse to go rent some or better yet, check some out from your library! :D (Or, for those of you financially disposed, buy them. :p)

    We'll jump right in with the play-in round:

    Gone With The Wind (1939)

    vs.

    Rebecca (1940)


    Since GWTW missed the last 64 by one year, why not have an extra round? Just to make things more interesting....

    :D

    Just to clarify, only vote for today's matchup. We'll have one or two matchups every 24 hours or so. :)

    Rebbeca WAS pretty darn good, but Gone with the Wind is a stunning movie. I'm going with Gone with the Wind... I'm glad you're including it :p
