Friday Face-Off #68

Time for another week of the Friday Face-Off. It’s a simple affair in which you are given a choice between two Oscar winners in specific categories. You choose which of the two is best. When the game concludes, we’ll have the ultimate winner in each category. For example: If you were to choose between Oscar Winner A and Oscar Winner B, the winner would face off against the winner of the contest between Oscar Winner C and Oscar Winner D. Think of it like championship brackets but with an Oscar style. If this is popular enough, we may do it for other types of films, events and such. Each week we may even have different categories to keep things spicy.

Here is this week’s ten face-offs. So, let’s get started.
