The results are in on the Leading Man of the 1970s and really it was no surprise. 28 votes total in this round and our number had a consistent lead throughout. Find out how everywhere fared after the jump!
Yep Clint Eastwood won with a total of ten votes. That’s three up from his tally on Thursday. Eastwood was leading this race out of the gate so it’s not surprising he ended up winning it all! Congrats Mr. Eastwood, we’ll see how you fare in the finals!
In terms of where everyone else landed no one was able to gain the edge over Clint but the second place winner is a shocker.
On Thursday Jack Nicholson was third with 4 votes but between then and Saturday he made a last-minute bid and gained second place with seven votes total, an increase of three votes! That wasn’t enough to propel him to number one but he definitely gained the biggest leap up to second place!
Robert Redford only gained one vote in the final numbers, ending in third with six votes. Considering how closely him and Eastwood were in this competition I’m surprised he didn’t stay in the second place position.
The last two entrants didn’t gain any increase in votes from Thursday’s update. Al Pacino will have to settle for fourth place with 4 votes.
And Warren Beatty ends this competition with a single vote….a single vote. You disappoint me Warren!
