Welcome to Vintage Paparazzi.

Who Will Be The Favorites For 1957?

Strike up the band! It’s election time again! On the right are the famous faces of stars who have stepped up to claim Photoplay Gold Medals in recent years. Their splendid performances made them eligible—but only the thoughtful votes of Photoplay readers made them victorious. Dating back before the Academy’s Oscars, these prizes are coveted by Hollywood’s top players. In 1921, announcing the results of the first voting, the magazine said: “The public has made its decision. And we think you have made a wise selection in ‘Humoresque,’ for it is a truly great picture, an artistic achievement as well as a popular triumph.” In February, the 1957 picture that rates this classic distinction will be named. An actor and an actress will join the golden group you see on this page. And this year’s most exciting newcomers will be tabbed as the best bets for 1958. But what will be the winning movie? Who will be the stars? We don’t know. We rely on you, Photoplay’s readers, the true judges of film quality, to call the shots. We trust you to choose a picture and stars that will be worthy of the honor. Let your voice be heard in the final verdict. Vote now!
