(Full bracket HERE, history of project HERE.)
Both these ladies were actually seeded one in the initial divisions of the brackets, so my initially specious seeding technique turned out to be not so suspect after all. And from the initial starting bracket list of 32 women and 32 men we’ve ended with two strong women. In addition to both earning Oscar nominations for their roles here (with Jodie winning) both ladies also earned one other nomination each, that decade. Moore was nominated for Lead work in The End of the Affair and Foster was nominated for Lead work in Nell (1994).
