It's official...Bette wins the crown for Favorite Classic Movie Actress of 2014

Bette beams proudly as she is named Favorite Classic Movie
Actress of 2014

Wow! What a match! Bette Davis and Barbara Stanwyck battled back and forth for the past 6 days and when it was all said and done, Bette emerged victorious with a 49-47 win. It gives Bette her 18th tourney win and places her 2nd all time, behind only Grace Kelly's whopping 20 wins. It also ends the 30's era actresses domination in the tourney. All three previous tourney winners (Irene Dunne, Ginger Rogers and Carole Lombard) came from that respective era. And Barbara Stanwyck was close to joining that exclusive club. She held the lead of 3 votes over Bette early yesterday morning but Bette stormed back to tie and then eventually take the lead. Today Bette led by as many as 5 votes before Babs made a late rally to tie the match again until Bette picked up two more votes to secure a victory. 
Asked what she will do after her loss to Bette, Babs replied
"Oh I think I will go play a little tennis! But I'll be back and ready
for next year!" That's our Missy!

It was a momentous occasion for Bette in several ways. Me and Desiree had recently given her a two week tribute on our facebook pages and of course April 5th marked Bette's birthday. So the final piece to this wondrous month was winning the crown as favorite classic movie actress of 2014. Well done Bette! Well done! Thanks to my good friends Desiree, Kristen and John for helping me once again for putting on this event and to all those fans and friends that voted and had a good time! 

We'll do it all again next year but for now let Bette have her moment. She deserves it!
