Post WOKJ's 100 Greatest Performances: Complete!
OK, it's time to do the announcement. I think we have compiled another excellent list, thanks to the following 21 people:

alex young
android
Chris
Shack
xiayun
trixster
Levy
yoshue
MovieGeek
RonBurgundy
Price
JesusHChrist
Mannyisthebest
Gullimont
Dr. Lecter
Jmart007
Positive* Jon
kypade
Corpse
Groucho
MadGez

Also an special thanks to Chris for helping promote the project and tabulate the result.

To break the ties, I used the same method as Box did:

1. Compare who has the most top 20 mentions, then top 15, top 10, top 6, top 3, and finally top 1;
2. If the distribution is the same, I'll compare who has the highest ranking (e.g. No. 4 vs. No. 6) and go downward.

If the distributions of individual rankings are completely the same, we'll declare them a tie, and we have two such cases.

Now, the first entry of our greatest performances...

Complete List

Glad to see Stewart here.

Very tight race for the final spot: there are 3 other performances with the same point but didn't get enough top 20 support.

Yes, but it also probably means that another deserving performance by someone else got shafted because of this pick.

For sure he has to have four other performanes on this list. The Shining, Once Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, A Few Good Men, and Chinatown? Though I hope About Schmidt is there.

This means the earliest performance must be from 1930 or 1931. *crosses fingers for City Lights - Charles Chaplin - 1931*

If we just count votes, she would've been quite a bit higher.

This beat out her Closer performance in the WOKJ yearly awards. I hope that is not left off this list.
