True American Movie Icons
Celebrating the 4th of July, here's a list of characters who represented a little more than the heroic side of their respective movies; they became symbols of what generally make American heroes shine in and beyond the national borders: idealism, persistence, coolness, bravery and a little je-ne-sais-quoi that make us (foreigners) wish for a while that we could belong to the same place. Which of these American Icons is your number one pick? After voting, you might discuss the list here

Oscar Winners at the Age of 30
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of our favorite website and following the previous "nominees" poll, here are the 11 performances that earned their actors an Oscar win on the year of their 30th birthday. Which of these performances (ranked chronologically) would you consider your favorite? After the vote, you might discuss the list here (oh, and the * refers to a supporting role) As usual, the age 30 applies to the year of the ceremony, regardless of the actor's actual birthday. The late Heath Ledger isn't included, this has actually nothing to do with the popularity of his performance as the Joker but like James Dean in the first 2015 poll, posthumous performances aren't taken into consideration less for technical reasons than because it would trivialize the tragedy of their deaths.
