    In my opinion, the best actors and actresses can be determined by the number of Oscar points, which in turn are determined by adding the number of nominations to the number of wins. For example, Daniel Day-Lewis has six nominations and three wins. Thus, he has nine points (6 + 3 = 9).

    After extensive research, I managed to determine the number of Oscar points earned by each actor and actress nominated for films released during the Golden Age of Hollywood — which I define as the period between July 1, 1934 and October 31, 1968, the period during which the Hays Code was enforced.

    So let’s play an elimination game among the ones with the most Oscar points.

     

    RULES:

    1. Each actor and actress starts off with the number of Oscar points earned for films between July 1, 1934 and October 31, 1968. If they earned Oscar points for films released before or after those dates, those points are not counted.
    2. Please vote for an actor or actress you want to see stay by giving him or her a +1 and for an actor or actress you want to see leave the list by giving him or her a -1.
    3. An actor or actress is eliminated when his or her point total falls to 0. You can only vote once a day. I’ll update the list at noon every day.
    4. Only the top ten actors or actresses based on this system, plus those who would tie to be in the top ten, can be chosen. Due to ties, there will be 14 actors and 11 actresses to choose from.
