    Damon has a more robust filmography because Affleck had all those flops in the early 2000s. Sure his choice in films have improved since then, but I really cannot think of a legitimately bad film Matt Damon was in, while I can think of several for Mr. Affleck (Gigli, Pearl Harbor, Daredevil, etc.)

    Easiest choice of all of these polls so far: DAMON.

    Outside of two movies that were pretty bad, Damon has the more diverse filmography with some great movies all over the spectrum in terms of genre while Affleck is very hit or miss (For every Argo there is a Boiler Room or a Jersey Girl).

    I feel like the last few years have been a bit kinder to Ben than Matt as the former has been taking advantage of his Hollywood comeback, but Damon really built himself an incredible resume in those first 10-13 years after Good Will Hunting, balancing action/genre films, comedies, and prestige pictures nicely. He gets the vote.

    Matt Damon. While Ben Affleck has really started to make more legitimate films, Damon has always done amazing work.

    Oh, Matt Damon, no contest. With that in mind, if Ben Affleck continues to do what he does, there’s a chance he could surpass Damon, but that won’t be for a while.

    Affleck will never surpass Damon because he’s the weaker actor.

    Haha, poor Affleck with 0 votes.

    Affleck has made amazing choices with his last 4 films. If he keeps this up he´ll get a new found respect as an actor.

    This maybe could have been Gold Derby’s first unanimous poll ever, but then someone had to go and ruin it.
