Montclarions Speak: Actors You Love

With the arrival of the movie awards season, it’s time to create a celebrity splash.  Based on our highly scientific survey, we’re ready to reveal the actors and actresses you love most.

The results are filled with well-known performers, but they are a real mix!  They come from independent as well as blockbuster movies.  They don’t all come from the latest pages of celebrity magazines, either.

Montclair’s Favorite Actors

This past year, your top actor picks were George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, Colin Firth and Robert Pattinson.  They changed plenty when switching to favorites this decade,  as Johnny Depp topped the list followed by George Clooney, Daniel Day Lewis, and Will Farrell.

Moving to favorite actors of all time, you loved Tom Hanks, Marlon Brando, Robert Redford and Harrison Ford.  We think the aughts weren’t permanently imprinted on the local cultural zeitgeist.

Montclair’s Favorite Actresses

During 2009, you favored Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and Kristen Stewart.  Looking at the past decade, you kept Meryl Streep on the list and replaced the others with Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon and Kate Winslet.

Gazing across the decades, the most-loved actresses were Meryl Streep (a three-peat), Jodie Foster, Katharine Hepburn and Frances McDormand.  Let’s go watch their tour de forces, right now.

Takeaway On Montclarion Tastes

We seem to enjoy good dramatic performers more than anything else, and avoid the all-American action stars.  Familiarity is a good thing, as our favorites have plenty of performances under their collective belts (Twilight stars excepted).

And everyone seems to dig George and Meryl, far and above the rest.
