It's official...Carole Lombard captures the crown for Favorite Classic Movie Actress of 2013

A triumphant Carole!!!!!

The third time proved to be the charm for Carole as she claimed the Favorite Classic Movie Actress crown for 2013 after two previous tries came up just a little short. She defeated Bette Davis 65-28 in the final match to add her name to the list of Classic Movie Actress tourney winners. The other two being Irene Dunne and Ginger Rogers, both whom knocked out Carole in the previous years. The 65 votes Carole accumulated were the most she achieved in any match this year. I guess she saved the best for last. It extends the 30's era actresses dominance in this tourney as they have now won all three tourneys. This win marks Carole's 15th win in tourney/match play to give her a record of 15-3, good for 2nd all time. Only Grace Kelly has won more matches with 16. It was a tough loss for Bette but most likely she will be the favorite to win it next year as Carole is now ineligible to compete due to her win. I'd like to thank Mythical Monkey, Desiree and Kristen for helping me put on this event and all those who voted. We will do it all over again next year. But for right now, let Carole bask in this momentous victory. And I for one couldn't be any happier!
