Blue - Eliminated from the tournament. * - Advanced tied with another person into the next round. I realize this list doesn't include everyone's favorite performances, but in order to make this tournament work, the list had to be trimmed. I tried to cover as many films as possible, and many of these picks are based on your input, so no whining! The tournament works as follows: I will be posting 4 brackets a day, consisting of two challengers. You will vote for one actor out of each bracket. You must have seen both performances in a bracket in order to vote. The brackets will be posted for 24 hours until they are closed and the new ones posted. In the event of a tie, I will keep that bracket open until someone can break it. If nobody can break it, then I will use a coin toss to determine the winner. All matches will be picked at random in order to avoid a bias of any kind. The status of each performance will be updated in this post after each bracket comes to a close for those who wish to keep track. Enough with the mumbo jumbo, let's get down to business! The first four brackets of the tournament will be posted momentarily. Remember: Vote for the quality of the performance, not just for the quality of the film.
