2019 Celebrity Death Pool

#1 Post by knarf » 15 Dec 2018, 16:52

Each entrant selects 13 people that are listed in IMDb with at least one movie credit (TV movies and straight-to-video are acceptable, mini-series do not count, unless IMDb lists them as a TV movie) as an Actor, Actress, Director, Himself, or Herself. That should make quite a few politicians, athletes and musicians available as well.

PM the list to me between now and Dec. 31, with Death Pool or something similar in the subject. I will not read these until 2019, and will then post everyone's entries. I'm entering too, but I won't look at yours before I've settled on mine. If you want to make changes before the deadline, please send a complete list, and I'll go by the last one I receive. If someone you've picked dies before 2018 ends, its your responsibility to make the change, or they'll remain in your list for no value.

Your score for each accurate guess will be 120 minus the age in full years of the deceased. If there's any conflict, I will go by the birth date listed at IMDb. If that isn't present for some reason, I'll try to find it elsewhere.

Deaths qualify as being in 2019 by whatever time zone the person dies in. This should only matter on January 1 and December 31.

Previous years: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018

only smithee and I had Leah Bracknell last year. She'd had such a turn-around in health that I took her off my list this year. I'm hoping she disappoints all five of you this year. :D :mishchief:

Okay with me, if no one else minds. We let Sheila in a few hours late last year.

Just can't use any of the awesome picks that have already been posted. :mishchief:
