With the Oscars coming up on Sunday, talk always begins about films, or actors, who should have won in any given year. Debates then often ensue over who the best actor or actress is/was.

Well, the folks at PrettyFamous.com have decided to help settle the matter once and for all. They've ranked the Most Famous Actor From Every State, using a formula that includes:

  • Number of awards they have been nominated for
  • Total number of IMDb reviews for films and television shows they had roles in
  • Recent interest, as determined by Wikipedia page views (specifically, from Feb. 20, 2016 through March 20, 2016)

According to the survey, Illinois' most famous actor is Robin Williams, while Cloris Leachman holds the honor amongst actors from Iowa.
