Who is Dame Judi Dench? (Fariha said Meryl Streep, Laura said Katherine Hepburn)



Fariha 10400 – 9798 = 602
Laura 11000 – 11000 = 0
Todd 11000 + 11000 = 22000 (3-day total: $74,402)

Those nominations were for Mrs. Brown (remember, the nomination came in calendar year 1998 for the 1997 film), Shakespeare In Love, Chocolat, Iris, Mrs Henderson Presents, Notes on a Scandal, and Philomena.

We have had SO MANY near misses on the first-ever tiebreaker as of late. It’s got to come soon! Meanwhile, I’ll add Todd to the ToC Tracker tomorrow morning!
