Hey WikiTreers-time for another round of Notable Knockouts!

In an effort to improve our Notables profiles, we're starting up a weekly challenge called "Notable Knockouts".

Each Thursday we'll post two Notables profiles that are in need of some major TLC.

To be considered a knockout the profile has to:

  • Have a detailed biography with in line citations (a bio that isn't copied from somewhere else).
  • Have quality sources from somewhere other than just Wikipedia.
  • Have at least one image.
  • Be connected to the Global Tree.

Bonus improvements, if you want to go above and beyond, could include things like:

  • Editing the person's Wikipedia profile to include links to their WikiTree profile.
  • Add WikiTree ID to WikiData
  • Adding relevant categories and/or templates.
  • Adding to their family connections.

Once a profile reaches Knockout status, we have a nifty Notable Knockouts template we can add to the comments section.

The Challenge: We want to make this fun so we thought we'd try having teams. Each profile is posted as an answer below. If you want to work on Team Best Actor Drama, post under that answer. If you want to work on Team Best Actress Drama, post under that answer. Each "team" can communicate there about who is working on what part of the profile. Yay, collaboration!

Team members that work on the profile that reaches Knockout status first will get a fun template in the comments section of their profiles.

Last week's contenders were Yogi Berra and Ty Cobb, Ty Cobb was a grand slam!  Yogi's still looking to be connected to the Global Tree. We'll include him in a future Knockout. 

This week is a Golden Globe Special Edition: Best Actor Nominees vs Best Actress Nominees in a Motion Picture Drama!  All the profiles in a team have to meet the criteria for there to be a Knockout. Some are in pretty good shape, others need a lot of love.

Team Best Actor Drama

Casey Affleck

Joel Edgerton

Andrew Garfield

Viggo Mortensen

Denzel Washington

Team Best Actress Drama

This one's going to be a tough one. I've had Denzel Washington on my radar for awhile now, so I've added categories, a photo, and did a quick run up his father's line as far as I could easily go and provide sources. I guess I'm committed to the actors now and will see how far I can get this group.
Hmm - looks like when I added one of Denzel's parents, it flipped his privacy to red. Can someone please flip him back to yellow? Thanks!
OK - quick assessment of each of these profiles, based on the 4 major characteristics (Biography, Sources, Image, Connection)

Casey Affleck - Bio: Short but present; Needs more work - Sources: No primary sources; Needs more work - Image: Check - Connection: Check

Joel Edgerton - Bio: Almost non-existent; Needs more work - Sources: No primary sources; Needs more work - Image: Check - Connection: No Connection

Andrew Garfield - Bio: Almost non-existent; Needs more work - Sources: No primary sources; Needs more work - Image: Check - Connection: No Connection

Viggo Mortensen - Bio: Almost non-existent; Needs more work - Sources: No primary sources; Needs more work - Image: Check - Connection: Check

Denzel Washington - Bio: Almost non-existent; Needs more work - Sources: No primary sources; Needs more work - Image: Check - Connection: No Connection

So all biographies need to be written, Wiki appears to be the only current source, Images are all done, and only 2 of the 5 are connected to the Global Tree. I've put family in for several of them (Denzel, Viggo, and Andrew) and images for the ones that were missing them, but it will take time to get them up to speed. I'll continue to plug away as I have time.
