We saw some big losses in Round 2—Helen Mirren crushed Susan Sarandon, Barbra trumped Cher and the jury picked Sandra Day O’Connor over Sarah Palin. But the games must go on! We’re down to the Sweet Sixteen, featuring some heavy hitters, including Meryl Streep and Queen Elizabeth. Winners or losers, it’s all in good fun!
Modeled after the popular March Madness contest in basketball, the FOFantasy Competition kicked off last week with 64 women from four categories: acting, singing, writing, and the political arena, whom we’re calling “influencers.” Now we’re down to 16! Each one of these fabulous women has excelled in her career, whether she makes us laugh or cry on the big screen or makes a difference in the direction of our country.
It’s a friendly competition, but only one woman will win. Make sure to return next week to see who advanced to the Elite Eight and to vote again.
