Actors & Actresses Rankdowns 2.0 (Top 20 Vote Now Open)

ACTORS & ACTRESSES MINI-RANKDOWNS

giphy.gif

Ranking performances of various actors and actresses

 

Rankdowns are clearly popular on this site, and some take several months to finish. The Actors & Actresses rankdown was the first rankdown I hosted, and it took five months until the winner was crowned. I'm not planning to do another traditional acting rankdown with 1000 entries again, but what if there was a way to have a faster version of the game? And instead of ranking actors against each other, this game will focus on their individual performances. Here's how it will work:

 

1. At the beginning of each round, one ranker will choose an actor or actress of his or her choice.

2. Every ranker will publicly advance one film or TV role of his or her choice to advance straight to the final ranking.

3. Every ranker will eliminate one role at a first come, first serve basis. Write-ups are not required, but feel free to explain your decision if you wish. This step may be repeated if the actor's filmography is long enough. However, if an actor's filmography is not long enough for a cutting round, then this step will be skipped.

4. The rankers will publicly vote to determine the rest of the roles making it to the final ranking.

5. The rankers will privately send a ranking of the Final 15 roles. Non-rankers are welcome to submit rankings too. Write-ups are not required, but feel free to submit them if you wish.

 

Once the winning role is revealed, we'll move onto the next round. Another ranker will choose a different actor or actress, and we will repeat the process. By the end of the game, all the winning roles will be ranked in one final overall ranking.

 

For each round, 5-10 people will play. However, rankers are free to opt out of a round if they are unfamiliar with the filmography of the actor or actress chosen. In addition, the actors and actresses chosen must have at least 25 film and/or TV credits in a starring role.

When is this starting? I’m interested but I’m currently in 4.5 rankdowns. :haha: 

 

Hopefully tomorrow.

 

Write-ups are not required for this game, so hopefully it'll make it easier for people to consider playing. 😄 It'll just be posting a few decisions and then sending a ranking.

I'll go ahead and choose the first actor to help everyone get accustomed to the game and its format.

 

I'll choose the winner of the Actors & Actresses Rankdown: Ryan Gosling.

 

If you are familiar with his filmography and want to play in this round, then post here on the thread. The deadline is 24 hours or once 10 rankers have signed up.

RANKERS

@Alex95

@Elliott

 

 

Thank you to the six people who have signed up! Maybe after this first round, the format will be easier to understand and more people will sign up for future rounds.

 

Your first task is to pick one of Ryan's film roles of your choice to advance straight to the final rankings. After the six film roles are chosen, you all will eliminate film roles until we are left with a Top 15.

 

Post here on the thread which role you want in the final rankings.

 

The deadline is 12 hours from now.
