The blackfilm.com Audience Has Spoken
Favorite Ten Actresses, Actors and Films of This Century

In November and December 1999, blackfilm.com conducted a poll *amongst its audience. The categories were Favorite Film of The Century, Favorite Actress of The Century and Favorite Actor of The Century. In conducting the poll, we did not specify any racial preference. We wanted our audience to answer from their gut. We received a smorgasbord of answers including Cary Grant, Jimmie Stewart and Dianne Wiest. Not to mention films like Apocalypse Now and Crush Groove. Showing a strong appreciation for contemporary performers and films, you have spoken. Thanks.
