1939 is widely considered "Hollywood's Greatest Year". Therefore, in honor of the 70th anniversary of the classic films from that legendary 12-month period, we are dedicating this month's MD Polls to celebrating them.
However, instead of asking you to simply pick your favorite 1939 movie (let's face it; this is Movie Dearest and we all know what film would win that contest), we will be holding a special dual poll spotlighting the best onscreen performances of that year, with one poll covering the men, the other the women.
The ten contenders in each poll consist of the five Best Actor and the five Best Actress Oscar nominees, plus an additionally five male and female favorites that have stood the test of time. The top twenty contenders are listed in the polls located in the right hand sidebar, and remember to vote in both polls! The winners will be revealed at the end of the month.
UPDATE: This poll is now closed; click here for the results, and click here to vote in the next MD Poll.
