My 14 southern cousins wish to register their votes for Olga. They are here for Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday that you unfortunate Brits will never have the pleasure of. They had never heard of the Internet until yesterday, when I showed them your wonderful contest.

My cousins all have pick-up trucks with shotguns, and will be very upset if their votes aren't counted. 4 of them are named 'Billie Bob', and 3 others are named Jed.

Are they from Wyoming and all married to the same horse?

Er...no. You must be thinking of my Kentucky cousins.

(astonished whispering)

A terrible mistake has been made...my southern cousins wish to withdraw their votes. They naively assumed that with a name like 'Olga', she must be from Sweden. They were horrified to learn that Olga was born in one of those formerly Communist countries.

They want to vote for Maud Adams, if it's not too late...

Naomi Watts, if I remember correctly, is an English born, Australian. You may be thinking of Nicole Kidman who I understand is an American born Australian.




No, I was thinking of Naomi Watts. All the movies I have seen her in she had an American accent and is why I thought she was American. First movie I saw her in was Mulholland Drive.

I didn't know Kidman was born in the USA either and always thought she was Australian. Lots of people think Mel Gibson is Aussie too but he also was born in the USA.

Watts and Kidman are Australian - they were just born overseas.

In time honoured fashion I should be jetting off to Mauritius with a selection of the winners, but as Jane is of pensionable age, and even older than I am, I am going with just Eva and Olga. I'll send a postcard...if I have time. Come on girls the taxi is waiting

Watts and Kidman are Australian - they were just born overseas.


Kidman may be have alternative or supplemental citizenship (e.g., 'dual citizenship'), but if she was born in the United States, she will be considered a citizen of the United States of America. That is, unless she formally renounces that citizenship-something very rarely done. So, she may focus on her Australian citizenship, but she's a 'pocket' Yank. Speaking of Yanks and pocket and Kidman...

From Wikipedia on the matter:

In the case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), the Supreme Court ruled that a person becomes a citizen of the United States at the time of birth, by virtue of the first clause of the 14th Amendment, if that person:

Is born in the United States

Has parents that are subjects of a foreign power, but not in any diplomatic or official capacity of that foreign power

Has parents that have permanent domicile and residence in the United States

Has parents that are in the United States for business

The Supreme Court has never explicitly ruled on whether children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents are entitled to birthright citizenship via the 14th Amendment,[6] although it has generally been assumed that they are.[7]



Dunno how Watts' citizenship vis a vis Australia / UK would shake out.

S'OK, Warspite. Even though she's older and (even worse) English, I'll keep an eye on her for ya. Isabella has offered to keep company with us too. Very kind of her. Enjoy your vacation and I'll see to it that Jane doesn't break a hip whilest I've got her.

A different person indeed! Jane's not that old (unless she's a vampire...)

Warspite, will your next context be for the best Bond villain? If so, I'm voting for Sophie Marceau.

No. Bond Girls included heroines and villains - Sophie Marceau was included in the recent competition, and was eliminated early doors.

Happy to take other recommendations and ideas though.

I suppose we could change tack slightly and do a "Most Beautiful Warship of WWII" competition?

We could have a shortlist of 64 ships, separated into 16 groups of 4. The top two in each group go through and from then its a straight 1v1 knock-out contest, until utimately HMS Warspite wins. Whaddya think?
