Live Poll: Americans Speak British, Brits Speak American

As reported by Variety*, ex-pat actors rated the accents of well-known performances by British actors playing Americans and American actors playing Brits.

Whatever you thought of the accent, which of these was your favorite performance?

Meryl Streep, Interesting and good poll suggestion. I think Variety's panel got this one right for the most part.

How did Costner get any better than a 0? He's not even trying to do the accent in that movie. Say what you will about DVD's cockney accent, but at least he's going for something.
