Luise Rainer makes a grand exit

Two-time Oscar-winning actress Luise Rainer has died at the age of 104, and has totally shaken up the standings so late in the game. Six players had her on 8 lists: Grady Harmon has extended his hold on first place to 6 hits!

Brad Hope and Doug Sing have defied all of my tie-breaker conditions by each getting a fourth hit and now both are sitting at 3rd place with an identical number of tie-breaker points. Unless another hit comes along in the next 39 hours to shake them up, they'll split the 3rd-place pot.

Kelly Keegan's Kelly and Craig II List, J.R. MacDonald, and Natalie Tyler's I`m Ready for my Close-Up, Mr. Reaper and Golden Oldies Lists all get a third hit.

Finally, Natalie's Let`s Hear It For the Girls List picks up her 2nd hit.

Wow... Ok... So, with 34 entries processed so far, Ms. Rainer was 2015's 8th-most picked in the new game (also with 8 hits). Obviously that means that the 8 people that have already submitted her name need to get me a replacement ASAP if they didn't provide an alternate!

Congrats, all!


Lonely days are gone, I'm going home - Joe Cocker dead at 70

Singer Joe Cocker is dead at the age of 70, giving Natalie Tyler's Deadstock List a solo on her first hit for this list. She moves up to 38th place

Congrats, Natalie!

They'll be planting Gardner

Hollywood Producer Arthur Gardner has died at 104, giving Grady Harmon a record-tying fourth solo of the year and, more importantly, making him the first player this year to get 5 hits. Grady takes the lead.

This is our second-latest Bag Day (the day at which the winner of the game got and maintained first place). Our latest Bag Day is 12/27/2006 when, ironically, current second-place Kelly Keegan stole the lead from Kevin Byrnes

Congratulations, Grady!
