Interference's 25 Favorite Actors, Actresses, and Directors

Here’s the list you’ve all been waiting for, Interference’s Favorite Actors, Actresses, and Directors. If you aren’t familiar with the scoring system, this is how it goes: Each submission had 10 entries in each category, each entry was assigned a point value (#1 got 10 points, #2 got 9 points, etc…). The point totals were added up to rank each entry into the Top 25 (ties were broken by # of appearances on the list). The movies selected by each entry were the movies listed the most for each entry, multiple movies means there was a tie.

Also, I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but it took a long time to fix up this list, mainly because most people didn’t follow the format in my first post. Lots of people didn’t put movies by their entry, so it kind of messes up the fun (Angelina Jolie had 3 entries but one movie. That’s a little off.) It just makes it easier for me to tally up at the end. Please follow the format for the next voting contest, thanks.

Daniel Day-Lewis

The way people go, I was expecting Johnny Depp to be at the top.
Nice to see Gary Oldman in the top 10, well deserved.
Lots of great actresses made the list too, picking a favorite actor is easy, picking an actress is harder.

And cousre, Speilberg at the top. Not going to argue that one.

Cant wait for the TV series edition
Suggestion, LMP, hows about a movie quote edition too? Knowing you though, you probably already have thought of that as a idea

You're right, I have considered that one.

Maybe after the TV one, not sure yet, because I'd really like to do a Greatest Movies/Directors/Actors/Actresses thing.

No Coen Bros., Sam Raimi, or John Carpenter love, but Robert Zemeckis and Cameron Crowe are like whizzes? This saddens me.

Totally. This man is overlooked far too many times.

Thanks for carrying this out, LMP. Very interesting.

Now bring on the top 25 TV shows.

Nice work LMP. Can't agree on the final finish though
I mean Kate Winslet is a better actress than Meryl Streep? Natalie Portman over Meryl Streep? damn kids!

And on the actress list - it's AUDREY HEPBURN, not Aubrey

Yeah, must've missed that speeling mistake amongst the other thousands.

Whoever said Jerry Bruckheimer was a director in their list made me laugh for a while, too.

How in the world did Michael Caine not make it on there? He's easily one of my tops all time.

I guess I should have voted in this one.

Personally, I'm a little put off seeing Zemeckis, Howard, and even Burton to an extent all in the top 10.

And Johnny Depp at #3/On the list at all =

He had 8 or 9 pts, I can't remember.

I still find it crazy that Jack Nicholson was as high up as he was and no one mentioned the same movie twice. One or two left it blank , but never mentioned one twice.

Michael Mann! Dear God.

And I must be one of the only people who thought that Eternal Sunshine was a ridiculous piece of masturbatory dreck.

Daniel Day Lewis and Kate Winslet in a Steven Spielberg directed movie

Love Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Ralph Fiennes, Al Pacino, though they were not in my top 10 and I think I worship Jimmy Stewart, Mel Gibson and Zemeckis.

Also loved Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut but I've never seen A Clockwork Orange.

My critique, just for shits, having a bit of fun here

Only 3 actors I took issue with.
Kevin "same tone and mannerism in literally everything" Spacey
good actor, yes, #6? Good God.

Clive Owen. He and his two memorable performances thank you for his #18 rank. Ridiculous.

Alan Rickman, just give me a break, Potter geeks.

2 actresses:

Angelina Jolie. Are you serious? Really, Gia at that. Wow.
Her Oscar win was a joke.

Scarlett Johansson at #15 ahead of (anybody else), well she's one of the most beautiful creatures I've ever seen in my life. So I guess the boys got carried away here (and above for that matter). Average at best actress.

3 directors:
Ron Howard at #8, this is not to be taken seriously.
#16 Alfonso Cuaron, I don't even know him, honestly.
Kevin Smith, one of the most curiously successful and undeniably worst comedic directors of our time. Hideous.

Okay, am I being unfair?
I liked Clerks (KS) and I love Scarlett's tits and Angelina's lips, I grew up with Opie and I'd probably do Clive Owen in a pinch. And Kaiser Soze(sp?) was pretty badass.

Other than that, considering the diversification of Interference, I think it's a pretty good list overall.
