Tough match-up, but the combination of SPEED and DEMOLITION MAN (both of which, to me, typify nineties action films) with *that* top picture make Bullock a simple choice.

Sandra Bullock. Enough said!

Are we voting for Nicole Kidman or her plastic surgeon?

Just rewatched Demolition Man on Sunday night, so I'm on a 90s Bullock high and loving it.

I’m calling a foul on this one. You have just about killed Kidman’s chances with those waxwork-alike photographs.

@ Film Intel - Yeah, I think this is a fairly easy choice for Bullock, largely for her resume. Though that is a solid top pick, ain't it?

@ Castor - Enough heard!

@ Mrs. Fletch - We've voting for her plastic surgeon's boobs!

@ Rachel - Sweet! One can never get too much Demo Man.

@ Andy - Ok, I'll grant that she looks waxy (but still kinda hot) in the second pic...but she's way hotter in that first pic than Sandra is in either of hers. That more than cancels it out.

For once I'm going with the higher seed.

I love that you figured out that boobs sell. I'm going to have to say Sandra pre-Oscar. The Blind Side somehow made her seem obnoxious. But I have an embarrassing affinity for Miss Congeniality, and Kidman's only a good actress when she doesn't have to worry about constantly looking pretty.

@ Nick - Congrats!

@ M. - "I love that you figured out that boobs sell." Is this a comment directed at me, for having the tournament in general? Well, sheeeeit, you shoulda been here last year for the Ladies of the 80s version! ;) Boobs are awesome! And yes, I would be embarrassed about an affinity for Miss Congeniality, too. :P
