This is just a quick update on the Leading Lady Tournament. I find myself at an impasse, and I’m hoping that the readers can help out on short notice. I have seven nominees for each decade, but in look at the list I’m A) feeling I have a few too many nominees and B) that the large amount has forced me to place some actresses in decades that they don’t belong in simply to include them. I’ve included the list of nominees as they stand right now, in the decades I’ve placed them in. Between now and the 13th, I’d love some feedback on if I should condense to five nominees a decade, and who you feel should be eliminated/placed in a different category. I was hoping to make things work with seven, but I’m not sure. What do you think? Remember you can also leave comments on Twitter (@Journeys_Film) or via Facebook (Facebook.com/JourneysinClassicFilm). Thanks!
