Round 4 Wrap-up (Sweet Sixteen Round)

The Sweet Sixteen Round of the 2015 Favorite classic Movie Actress Tourney is now complete. Here are the final numbers in all four eras:

30'S ERA:
Myrna Loy defeated overall top seed Barbara Stanywck by the count of 79-58, marking Myrna's deepest run into a tourney yet as she moves on to the elite 8. Last year these two met in the 30's era finale and Babs won that one. But Myrna wasn't going to be denied this time. She will face Jean Arthur who just steamrolled Elsa Lanchester by the score of 81-37. Give props to Elsa though as she notched three wins over heavily favored competition before losing to Jean.

40'S ERA:
Rosalind Russell and Gene Tierney had a dandy of a match which finally saw Roz winning 49-44, marking Roz's best run in a tourney so far. She will face Greer Garson, who crushed perennial favorite Judy Garland 52-37 to pick up her 4th win. Greer came into this year's tourney with a losing record of 0-4, never winning a single match, now she has won four in a row. Somebody lit a fire under her.

50'S ERA:
One of last year's final four finalists, Audrey Hepburn cruised to another win after ripping through Eleanor Parker 47-18 while in the other match, Doris Day edged out Debbie Reynolds 33-31 in one of the tourney's more exciting matches. So Audrey and Doris will duke it out again after the pair met last year in the 50's era final which saw Audrey narrowly winning by the score of 65-60.

60'S ERA:
In one of the most notable upsets, Shirley MacLaine demolished last year's final four finalist Elizabeth Taylor 87-50, thus preventing Liz in a rematch with Natalie Wood. Natalie notched her 2nd straight 100 plus vote win by crushing Ann-Margret 119-25.

The Elite 8 matches will be posted tomorrow in each era to see which actress earns a trip to the final four!
