These names have received votes in the first six polls so we can proceed to cut down to a smaller group.

To do your part:

1) Copy the entire list
2) Eliminate all but 20 (1/4 of the group)
3) Post your 20 in this thread

After a week (Sunday 2/17) the top vote-getters (maximum 40) will be posted in a new thread for the Semi-Finals.

The Finals will total no more than 20 names and the highest vote-getters will be deemed the SDMB Favorites.

It's been almost 19 hours (since Yesterday, 05:00 PM ) with no new vote/posts to this thread. I plan to wait until Sunday before posting the Top 40 from this list for the Semi-Final voting/posting, but if we had to go with the current list it would have to be:

======================

Harry Dean Stanton (8)

Steve Buscemi (7)

Frances McDormand (6)
David Strathairn (6)
Stanley Tucci (6)
JT Walsh (6)

John Goodman (5)
Slim Pickens (5)

Chris Cooper (4)
Jack Elam (4)
John Hawkes (4)
Dan Hedaya (4)
George Kennedy (4)

Peter Lorre (4)
Strother Martin (4)
Warren Oates (4)
Stephen Root (4)
Tim Roth (4)

J.K. Simmons (4)
Jack Warden (4)

---------------------------------20

Ned Beatty (3)
Elisha Cook Jr (3)
Garret Dillahunt (3)
Walton Goggins (3)
Sydney Greenstreet (3)

Ciarán Hinds (3)
Bo Hopkins (3)
Jason Isaacs (3)
Ben Johnson (3)
Claude Rains (3)

Giovanni Ribisi (3)
Tom Wilkinson (3)

Ward Bond (2)
Walter Brennan (2)
Jim Broadbent (2)
Lee J. Cobb (2)
Peter Coyote (2)

Margaret Dumont (2)
Charles Durning (2)
Carol Kane (2)
Cloris Leachman (2)
Akim Tamiroff (2)

Lee Van Cleef (2)
M. Emmet Walsh (2)

---------------------------------24

and I see no reason to be a slave to 40 when there's no way to break the tie among the (2) votes people.

If you want to see this list changed your vote/post will need to be counted.

See you Sunday.
