MacEddy fans rejoice!

Nothing like a little celebratory cake....

It's official...Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald are the favorite classic screen couple after defeating favored couple Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers by the count of 85-31 in the final match of the favorite classic screen couple tourney. MacEddy, as they are affectionately known by their fans defied odds all tourney long after they kept knocking off perennial revered couples such as Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn and William Powell and Myrna Loy. Maybe now more classic film lovers will see how popular MacEddy were and still are to this day. And their names can be said along with those other greats with just as much importance and love. The fans of MacEddy showed up and supported the couple from the first round of this tourney and kept the mojo going through it all, finally taking down Fred and Ginger. Thanks to all those who voted and I loved teaming up with my great friend Desiree to put on this cool tourney!

It's great to see Jeanette and Nelson way at the top where they belong. I hope they know how much we still adore them.

Hi Monty! I'm glad to be back after being away, and I look forward to more of your wonderful contests. I have to say I'm amazed that Astaire/Rogers were beat out by Jeanette and Nelson! I've never really been a big fan of theirs, and adore Astaire/Rogers. Well, you never know, do you? LOL! Have a Happy New Year!
