Dual Redundancy's 3rd Annual March Madness Bracket: Round 1

It is March and that only means one thing: March Madness! Even though we do not discuss sports we still wanted to join the bracket fun and make one for ourselves.

So far we have learned that Arrested Development was the best television show and that The Shawshank Redemption is the best movie. This year Dual Redundancy wants to know who is the best actor/actress? We have chosen 32 actors and 32 actresses and have them competing head to head against each other. After we have a winner in both categories we will have them go head to head in a final round to determine the best living actor or actress!

How did we calculate who made the bracket and what seed each person got? Both Mike and David created two separate lists of actors and actresses and had the Dual Redundancy fans submit their choices through social media. We then calculated the awards (Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar & Tony) received for their performances (not counting producing or directing credits). For example, an Oscar win was 10 points, an Emmy win was 8 points, an Oscar nom was 5 points, etc. We then took these scores and added their AVERAGE box office gross (adjusted for inflation). For example, if an actor's total is $82,203,900, 8.22 was added to their total. The top 32 in each category made the cut and like most brackets the number one seed is up against the lowest seed.

Each new round of voting and the results will be announced here on the Dual Redundancy Blog as well as Facebook and Twitter.
