Welcome back! Before we jump into the results of the Round of 32, there has to be a hat tip to our readers. Our Circuit Madness brackets have often benefitted newer, shinier winners that our readers have actually seen. Yet this Circuit Madness has been a show of force that remembers classic cinema. Yet this year, only 7 of the remaining 16 contenders in the Circuit Madness 2018 Sweet 16 were released after 1990. That number shrinks to 4 when considering winners this millennium. It’s good to see so many classic performances make it this far, but there’s a way to go yet! Let’ recap the last round, and jump into the voting!

1) Hattie McDaniel defeats Estelle Parsons 86% to 14%
