Less than a few hours ago I wrote a post updating round 2 of the Favorite Classic Actress Tourney and within that time frame we have had some lead changes. No, Ruby Keeler is not making a rally on Joan Blondell. Joan has actually picked up a few more votes and leads now 70-3, making her match the biggest margin of victory in tourney play this year. But if you head over to the 40's and 60's eras, you will find some major excitement going on. First up, in the 40's era Loretta Young who was down by 3 votes to Maureen O'Hara now leads by 3. Wow! And Ida Lupino who has trailed her entire match with Lauren Bacall, by as many as 9 votes has cut it down to a mere 2 now. Double wow!
LORETTA YOUNG leads MAUREEN O'HARA 32-29
LAUREN BACALL leads IDA LUPINO 32-30
Over in the 60's era, Maggie Smith now leads Julie Andrews 39-38 after trailing a few hours ago by 2 votes. And Diana Rigg clings to a 1 vote lead over Angela Lansbury by the score 40-39. I'll keep everyone posted with what is turning out to be the most exciting round yet in the tourney.
MAGGIE SMITH leads JULIE ANDREWS 39-38
DIANA RIGG leads ANGELA LANSBURY 40-39
Matches continue through until this evening.
