What You're Thankful For
Round One voting is completed, but before we get to the results, how about some predictions?
Okay - tomorrow’s the big day!
Who do you think is going to make it into the playoffs (and I mean in the “public” bracket, not ours)? Just like the NCAA, we’ll be able to modify our Final Four as the bracket progresses. Right now, I’m going to have to go with Chris Messina, McConaughey (it’s a tough choice over Cruise, but I feel he’s more relevant), Zefron (or Timberlake), and Bradley Cooper, although I think that’ll be a slight win over Pratt. What do you think?
I’m hoping big things for Norman Reedus, Jared Leto and HOPEFULLY John Slattery…but I just don’t know… I’ll set those aside for my personal picks :).
Happy voting tomorrow!
I think Messina's got a good shot, McConaughey, obviously does. I feel pretty confident about Pratt's chances these days and people love their Coop. Outside of that, I think we did a good job of offering diversity for other people. Our preferences are stated loud and clear, but I'm pretty sure that we're the only people who could have come up with a category for Tyler Perry and Spike Jonze.
I personally am pulling hard core for Vince, Norman and Donald Glover, because dayummmm.
I wonder what Glover's chances would've been if we'd started this AFTER Magic Mike?

If there are typos, I hope they are hilarious and not embarrassing.
Shoo. In. Remember how Channing Tatum and Joe Magic Mike DIDN'T make our list but Rob Riggle did? I'm real proud of that.
So, how did it work out for D. G.? Nahhhhttttttt so great.
Here are the results:

Surprisingly, very few of the picks here matched our internal edition (happening over here, if you're interested).
Not surprisingly, there were some thoughts*:
Cruise vs. Smith: "chocolate... and well i've never forgiven tom cruise for the whole nicole kidman thing. plus, scientology scares the f-ck out of me."
Bailey vs. DiCaprio: "You jump, I jump."
Riggles vs. Franco: "Dave looks like a child, but Ruggles looks like a a guy in an erectile dysfunction ad. Youth wins?"
Hamm vs. Wolk: "I like clean cut and I cannot lie."
Duchovny vs. Danson: "He was mentally ill in Sex In The City and I was into it."
Wilson vs. Leto: "Man bun or die."
Downey, Jr. vs. Evans: "Bad boy, bad boy, whatcha gonna do?"
Chandler vs. Jeter: "i don't understand derek jeter."
*PS Turning on the comments in the poll might be my favorite thing I've ever done. It's teaching me that sometimes it's okay to read the comments. Post-bracket, I'll try to make them all available.
