Irene Dunne wins the 2016 Lombard Cup

Due to issues with the polls being compromised and allowing people to vote as many times as they wanted to, I made the decision to wrap up the Lombard Cup with Irene Dunne being the winner. Her match with Myrna Loy was the one of the matches that was compromised but since she had been leading in the points standings for the past three weeks, Irene was the legitimate winner regardless. Congrats to her and Josie Miller, who chose her as her actress for this competition. And marks another major win for Irene, as you may recall she was my first classic movie actress tourney champion back in 2011. Thanks to all my friends who played and all those that voted!
