This thread has come a long way from the TLJ/TROS wars.

Lupita is "yuck"? Seriously? That woman is stunning. Should be the easiest upset of the entire tournament.
A lot of our voters seem to not see beauty outside of a certain dynamic. It is what it is.
Hey, I have no idea who this Lupita woman is but I don't find her attractive in that picture.

FTR, I've dated black women so color is not a barrier for me when it comes to beauty.

Not sure of the brackets, but pretty sure it's gonna come down to Natalie Portman vs Emilia Clarke.

I'm not sure which part is more ridiculous, that you don't know who she is or that you have to publicly state you've dated black people. Are you George Costanza hanging out with the exterminator who treats Jerry's apartment?

Well when people are off hand accusing him (and others) of blatant racism, that's not an unexpected response.

I apologize to anyone who felt I was accusing them of blatant racism when I said "not see beauty outside of a certain dynamic".

Feel free to hang my username in effigy for this egregious attack on your character.

Just wanna say, Thandie Newton circa-2000 was so damn hot. Let's just say that she was part of my sexual awakening at age 12.

Also, the MI-2 soundtrack was about the greatest thing ever at the time. Limp Bizkit AND Metallica on one soundtrack?

Even more timely now with the plot seeing Ethan Hunt & co try to stop the release of the deadly Chimera virus...

I also have black friends.

And, no, I don't know who she is. I'm not sure why I should. I probably actually know her from some move I've seen but I largely don't keep up with the names of actors and actresses who aren't super famous.

Carrie Fisher with the overall number one seed and the easiest bracket. Emilia Clarke as a number 2 seed?

The selection committee is really showing some bias in these rankings.

For Emilia Clarke you have to check out her whole body of work and not punish her for just having a bad ending to the season.

Only two ladies have achieved 100% of the vote through the first 16 hours of competition.

Nah.

Emilia is the clear choice for me. I understand why Portman would be for others. It'll be down to those two and anyone who watched GOT should vote correctly.

I started doing #MissionImpossibleMonday working from home this week and had similar thoughts about MI:2. Except the soundtrack doesn't quite hold up

Watch the first couple of seasons of Game of Thrones, the needle will definitely move.

Unknown Actress Lupita Nyong'o Leads Charge Into Road to Jabba's Sweet 16



Lupita Nyong'o, who is apparently an actress in Hollywood, advanced to the Sweet 16 of the Road to Jabba's Palace on Wednesday. The 5th seed in the Jakku Region, defeated Laura Dern's #4 seeded Vice-Admiral Holdo 56.8%-43.2%.
"It's a thrill for sure to be recognized as hot by the good posters of TexAgs," Nyong'o, who has toiled in relative obscurity while making films such as The Force Awakens ($936 million domestic), Black Panther ($700 million), The Last Jedi ($620 million), The Rise of Skywalker ($515 million), and Us ($175 million). "Yes, I won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, but most people never watch the Oscars or something I guess."

She'll take on Jakku top seed Daisy Ridley, who was the only contestant to score 100% of the vote. Rey defeated Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) in totally dominant form. "That's what you get when you mess with Rey Skywalker...Palpatine...what was the other one? Corona? Romano? Was my name going to be Corky Romano in the original script?"

#2 seed Keri Russell/Zori Bliss, which is only the 2nd best adult entertainment name in this tournament, handled the weird chick sitting with the big fat guy that rats out Rey and Finn and BB8 to the First Order by a 89.2%-10.8% count. She'll battle the hotter Tico sister, #3 Paige, who whipped #6 Brienne of Tarth by the exact same margin.

Over in the Stardust region, we had our first genuine upset, although I'm not sure comparing hot chicks has upsets, but whatever. #6 Emily Swallow - the runaway winner with best adult film actress name, handled #3 Gina Carano aka Cara Dune with 73% of the vote. That sets her up with a showdown with second-seeded Emilia Clarke, whose Q'ira might have been in the least popular movie, but has been naked enough on Game of Thrones to easily score a 91.9%-8.1% win over #7 Fennec Shand / Ming-Na Wen, the assassin who is doing something or other on the Mandalorian episode that's in Mos Eisley. And let me just tell you, Ag to Ag, and Emilia Clarke and Emily Swallow collaboration could outgross The Force Awakens in about 3 hours. The other matchup will pit #1 seed Jyn Erso vs. #4 Val (Thandie Newton). Felicity Jones got 97.3% of the vote, Val knocked off Natalia Tena with 75% of it.

Up in the Naboo-ty bracket, all the people you've never heard of plus Sofia Coppola, who i spent about 10 minutes trying to find a picture of her where her smile didn't look like Snagglepuss, were run over by the three you know really well and the only redeeming Sand Snake from Game of Thrones, aka the one that got naked.
So #1 Natalie Portman/Padme (a 97.3% winner) takes on #4 Keira Castle-Hughes (75.7%) in a battle of former Naboo Queens, while #2 Elizabeth Swann (another 97.3% winner) gets a very appealing in-my-mind hookup with fellow saucy lady Rose Byrne (86.1% winner).

There were no surprises in the Alderaan Region, where #2 seeded Oola was in just enough weird Internet fan art to defeat Zam Wessel 52.8%-47.2%. She'll take on spicy red-head Mara Jade, who whipped Aura Sing (yes, please) 66.7%-33.3%. Princess Leia took 97.3% of the vote just like her mother and the #1 seed will duke it out with #4 Ashley Eckstein, who if you have not seen her social media post, sounds like she didn't know they were even putting Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian, much less that she wasn't playing the role. Ouch.

Next round starts in the next 30 minutes or so. Thanks for voting! I have spoken.

Honestly surprised at how many "correct" choices made it through. I think I voted for every winner. In other words, excellent taste, everyone.
