I’m not sure how many of our current readers were around during our Spring project, Middlemarch Madness, but we had so much fun with it we’ve decided to do another bracket every fall. Don’t worry, book lovers, we’re still doing Middlemarch Madness in 2012, but we thought it would be fun to celebrate the new TV season by picking the Baddest Lady Television Badass.
Any woman character who has ever been on a television series is eligible for nomination, so we have decades worth of ladies to wade through to determine the top 64 that will appear in the bracket.
To start us off, we’ll do a couple of nomination threads, then we’ll narrow down the choices like we did for Middlemarch, with votes for each of the four broader categories:
- Lead Lady Character in Drama
- Lead Lady Character in Comedy/Musical/Variety
- Supporting Lady Character in Drama
- Supporting Lady Character in Comedy/Musical/Variety
I’m guessing it will take us a couple of weeks to narrow down who’s going to make it to the brackets, then it should take about 3-4 weeks to determine the winner.
To get the ball rolling, tonight I want to see nominations for the two lead categories, drama and comedy. I know you all will wow me with your choices.
