64 ladies. Six rounds of competition. One winner.
Girl on Top 214 is officially underway, y’all! Our annual tournament to find TV’s top leading lady kicks off its first round of competition today and judging from the wide range of nominations submitted by you, our dear readers, this year’s tourney is going to be the toughest yet!
Several newbies are making their Girl on Top debuts, including Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, Sleepy Hollow’s Nicole Beharie and The Blacklist’s Megan Boone, while perennial fan favorites such as Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order: SVU and Stana Katic from Castle also found themselves back in the competition, as well as last year’s finalists, Lost Girl’s Zoie Palmer and Anna Silk, with Palmer taking home the (imaginary) trophy.
We’ve also got some costars battling it out for award, including trios from Game of Thrones and The Vampire Diaries, all four of Pretty Little Liars’ leading ladies, and pairs from The Good Wife, The Originals and Glee. (Fingers crossed we don’t cause any tension on set, this is a friendly competition, people!)
Voting for the first round of competition closes Thursday, April 24 at 5 p.m. PT, with 32 ladies advancing to the second round, which will kick off bright and early on Friday Morning.
And remember, you can vote as often and as many times as you like, and can spread the word about the tournament on Twitter using the #GirlonTop hashtag.
OK, enough with the boring stuff. Let’s rock this vote, shall we?!
