Classic Movie Actress Tourney Round 1 Update (Miriam Hopkins is disqualified)

I thought I would update everyone on how the matches are going. First up, I have to disqualify Miriam Hopkins. It appears someone has hacked into Blogger and has tampered with the match. I thought that was the case during her play-in match with Mary Astor but wasn't for sure. Well I am now. Right before lunch I had checked the match and Barbara Stanwyck was beating Miriam handily 43-7. Now Miriam leads 51-47. No way did Miriam get that many votes in the span of 4 hours. It's so sad that one person can ruin such a fun event for everyone. So that match is over as Babs moves on to round 2. And now this sheds light on last year's victory by Ginger Rogers. Maybe she didn't win it fairly. But I won't worry about that now as I will solely concentrate on this year's tourney. Here are the other scores for the other matches going on...

Sad news as Miriam had to be disqualified due to poll tampering

 And since I know the scores now of all the current matches it will be easy to deduce if they
get tampered with too. I hope that's not the case. Hope the rest of the tourney will go smoothly 
and fairly.

And we thought cheating only went on in professional sports!

You know, I was shocked (and voiced in my comment) that Miriam beat Mary Astor by such a wide margin. Now, I know why it happened.

Anyhow, hope the rest of the tourney goes smoothly!

I'm sorry to hear that someone decided to ruin the fun. Miriam deserved better and so did all the other actresses.
