CAROLE LOMBARD - My Favorite Actress

Barbara Stanwyck withstands a furious rally by Olivia de Havilland to become the Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tourney Champion of 2018

The 2018 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Champion is Barbara Stanwyck. After two previous final fours where she came up empty handed, the third time was the charm for Missy, as she withstood a furious rally by Olivia de Havilland to win 78-76. Babs joins Carole Lombard and Audrey Hepburn as actresses to win the championship on their third try. Babs also becomes the 4th actress from the 30's era to win the tourney as that era continues to dominate. She joins Carole Lombard, Ginger Rogers and Irene Dunne in that distinction. The 30's era has now won 4 of the 8 tourneys. Yep they have won half of the tourneys played. Impressive. With this win, Babs also notched her 25th tourney win, placing her the all-time actress with most wins, one win ahead of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. It may have been a tough loss for Olivia, but I wager she will be the favorite to win next year. Because she got stronger with each round and proved to be Babs toughest competitor. Her 76 votes would have been more than enough to win any other tourney match except  for this one. Hope everyone had a great time and please come back for next year's tourney.
