Hey. I love Ian Holm.
But making a poll and leaving out a popular character???????
Put Bilbo last on the list if you must. But don't flat leave poor Bilbo out!!

That's because I want to show he had some other talent than just Bilbo. It's terrible to create one long bar, but ignore his whole life. If someone wants to make it, do it. Maybe the people will watch some other movies with Sir Ian Holm in it, than just only LOTR. I don't want to see him fixed to one role only.

Breumaster,

Thank you for creating this In Memoriam poll for Ian Holm. I was not aware of his death until I saw your poll suggestion.

Your welcome. I was stunned to read it at 4'o'clock middle european time. Google news revealed it to me. I had no time, because I should sleep, but I took one hour to make this. It was too necessary.

I just realized that Skinner was actually him. Bilbo would win this game but I'd go with Skinner.

Breumaster,

Just in case this helps. IMDb has this list featured on the IMDb Home Page under "Editors' Picks":

In my opinion his role in ALIEN is as iconic as Bilbo, either you keep both or you remove both... otherwise it will be an ALIEN victory ;)

Hi Breumaster,

I don't think they publish multiple In-Memorial polls for the same person. Since you posted it first, may I suggest a better description,

"We are very sorry to hear about Ian Holm, an Oscar-nominated British actor whose career demonstrated remarkable dramatic range, from small-time dramas to famous leading roles, who died peacefully at the age of 88 on June 19, 2020.

Let's have a look at some of his most memorable roles.

Which of these movie characters played by Ian Holm is your favorite?"

(If you wish to mention him in the description, use "[link=nm0000453]" without the double quotation marks.)

I hope I didn't make any typos.

Thank you, Bo.
I guess you are right. Last night I had no time, so I made it up in a hurry.
I changed it they way you would present it. That's better.

Then it would be ready to go online.

I have an open ear, if there are things to make better, or if there can be things optimized. It doesn't necessarily have to be the only poll about Ian Holm, but I think it's pretty good.

I wanted to put him on the list, but found no matching images. In polls the image is cropped to cubic format, so we will see just his hands and nose. I'll put him on the list, if is a useable image. I think the users of IMDb should recognize him on the image.

I learned that he was knighted, so I added "Sir" to all of his names appearings in the intro and title.

'Very well done poll. This is a model for good in-memoriam polls. My vote is his performance in Sweet Hereafter; I don't know that I'd say that I liked his character but Holm's performance is impeccable and the character is the glue that holds this beautiful, haunting film together. 'Great actor.

Thank you, ruby.
I'm not sure, which of his roles I will click. He always had a strong presence.
When he appeared on the screen, there was some magic in the air.
I hope they put in the images of Ed and Bo fast, 'cauze I'm gonna sleep, soon. ;D

Breumaster,

FYC:

Since we will not be able to list all of the characters he played (which is 50+, I guess), maybe you should add an image (perhaps this) at the very end with a note that says, "My favorite Ian Holm's character is not listed above."

This way, we hope we don't disappoint any of his fans.

Breu, do you consider this ready, or do you want to wait for The Aviator and Brazil images to be available?

Sometimes I think they should separate the event images from the movie images.
I'll wait for the images, even though they could be added in a re-push.

Brazil is ready: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088846/mediaviewer/rm3986926337

If The Aviator isn't ready soon, maybe you can add an event image like this one: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338751/mediaviewer/rm2321586688 and once the character image gets uploaded change it in a repush.

That's what I did now. ;D
If you want, it's ready to go.
We will fix the Aviator-glitch later. ;D
Just took a better image, where he looks
more like the professor. ;D

Thank you, guys! That's a poll made by a few people. Thank you all for the good ideas to dignify this memorial-poll. When the Aviator-image is on, I'll put it to the options and ask for a re-push. Thank you also in sake for Sir Ian Holm's dignity.
