Film and TV Twitter Tournaments

Since February 2021, the Classic Film & TV Café (@classic_film) has been conducting monthly classic film and television "tournaments" on Twitter. 

We choose a topic, such as classic TV show themes, and establish any criteria for selection. For example, we required that any nominated TV themes be from a TV show that began broadcasting no later 1989. Then, we host a "Nomination Day," in which film and TV fans on Twitter can submit up to four nominations. We tabulate those results and use the data to seed the tournament field.

Over a series of rounds, film and TV fans vote on Twitter until a champion is crowned! 

Our goal is not proclaim certain shows or actors as the best or most popular. Rather, we just want to celebrate classic movies and television shows and the people that made them...and have some fun!

We will announce the next topic in May 2022. If you want to participate, follow us on Twitter at @classic_film and stay tuned for updates!
