    Hello, and welcome to the Golden Actor tournament!

    This tournament is actually sixteen “mini-tournaments” in one.  One “mini-tournament” per gender (male or female) per decade (1930s to 2000s).

    Who will compete in each “mini-tournament” is determined by the number of “Oscar points” (one point per nomination and one point per win) they earned in the represented decade. Those who either rank or are tied for first, second, and third in “Oscar points” for the represented decade will be eligible to compete.

    Each actor/actress starts with ten points. With each post you make, you can add exactly one point to one person and one point to another person, per “mini-tournament.” When an actor or actress reaches zero points, that actor or actress is eliminated from that “mini-tournament.”

    When three actors or actresses remain in a “mini-tournament,” the third-to-last competitor will be awarded a “BRONZE ACTOR/ACTRESS” award for that decade. The second-to-last competitor will be awarded a “SILVER ACTOR/ACTRESS” award for that decade. The last competitor will be awarded a “GOLDEN ACTOR/ACTRESS” award for that decade, and be declared the winner of the mini-tournament.

    The winner of each “mini-tournament” will then advance to the next round. There he or she will face the winner of the “mini-tournament” representing the opposite gender within their respective decade. For example, whoever wins the 1930s male “mini-tournament” will face the winner of the 1930s female “mini-tournament.” Whoever wins this round will be declared the “SUPER-GOLDEN ACTOR” award for “winning” that decade.

     EXTRA RULES

    1. I will update the scoreboard every day at noon EST (9 AM California time). Score updates are NOT official until that daily deadline. In other words, if an actor/actress reaches zero points before the daily deadline, he or she will NOT be officially eliminated until the daily deadline passes, and if another user adds a point to that actor/actress and places him/her above zero points before then, that actor/actress will NOT be eliminated that day.

    2. In order for your ballots to be valid, you MUST:

    • File a complete ballot. You MUST vote on ALL active “mini-tournaments” in order for your ballot to be counted. Incomplete ballots will NOT be counted until they are amended.
    • Ballots that feature points being given to or taken from actors/actresses who are not eligible or already have been eliminated will be counted as incomplete.
    • If the mini-tournament has two or more competitors sharing the same last name and only the last name is given in the ballot, then the ballot will be counted as incomplete UNLESS there is only one person with that last name who hasn’t been eliminated.
    •  Vote only ONCE per 24-hour period between 12:00 PM EST (9:00 AM California time) and 11:59 AM EST (8:59 AM California time) the following day. If you vote more than once in that 24-hour period, your second, third, etc. votes will NOT be counted, period.

    Have fun! Competitors are listed in the next post!

    Whoops! Forgot to mention two more things.

    First, if your ballot contains a “mini-tournament” where your vote is a double plus or a double minus, your ballot will be counted as incomplete and will not be counted until it is amended. The reason why is because I would not be able to tell who you actually want to upvote or downvote.

    And second, try to ignore any personal scandals or controversial political beliefs and vote PURELY on quality of acting when you vote. Not all great actors are good people. I recognize that and utterly condemn any bad behavior these people have done in their personal lives. Nevertheless, if you feel you are unable to base your votes PURELY on quality of acting, please don’t play this game.

    Otherwise, have fun!
