EDISON, NJ – When New Jersey business leaders - presidents, CEOs and senior executives were asked who was New Jersey’s best actor, Edison’s own Susan Sarandon makes the list at number four..
Meryl Streep, nominated for a record 18 Academy Awards and winner of three, was voted top New Jersey actor, capturing 42.5 percent of the votes. That was enough to beat Nicholson (33 percent), whose 12 Academy Award nominations ranks second among male actors (he won two). He was followed by Michael Douglas (12.5 percent) of New Brunswick; James Gandolfini (5 percent) of Park Ridge; Susan Sarandon (4 percent) of Edison; and John Travolta (3 percent) of Englewood.
For this summer survey, ParenteBeard and the New Jersey Chamber suspended their traditional economy-related questions and addressed lighter, yet still compelling questions.
The ParenteBeard - New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Summer Survey is designed to measure the outlook of the state's business leaders, ranging from single entrepreneurs to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies in a wide array of fields. A total of 200 business leaders participated in the survey from July 24 to Aug. 8. Most are presidents and CEOs, or senior level executives.
