It's a new poll, with a simple enough idea: if there are multiple nominees from the same movie in the same acting category, we hold the poll. Poll will be open for at least 24 hours.
DUEL #17 WINNER
I think that if Hulce was against pretty much anybody else, that result would be flipped.

Davis/Sarandon is like Pacino/Brando in The Godfather to me, one of the few times where I acknowledge that the former give the better, more complex performance but I can't vote against the latter who simply left a bigger impact. So, Sarandon.
