We bid farewell to some fan favorites in the Sweet 16—Judi Dench, Bette Midler, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are now watching from the sidelines. Hillary Clinton and Queen Elizabeth were neck and neck, but Hillary ultimately scored the win. Alas, we’re down to the Elite 8. Some of the most anticipated games are ahead—Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren are battling, and Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner will have a full house watching their game. 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 Final Four and to vote again.
