It was a close one though with 51% of the vote going to Ashley and 49% going to Alexis. We were a little surprised, especially since we got a lot of tweets (don’t know if they voted officially or not) for Alexis. But the numbers do not lie. But in the end, Team50 will be making the official choice and there are some great actresses out there.
The Sweet 16 was a fun way to discuss the possibilities, even though some new names have been thrown out. Thank you for all your participation!
Congrats to these two great actresses. Incase you missed how we got to these two ladies you can find the brackets here.
So ladies (and gentleman) it’s your chance to vote and comment on which if these you think would make a better Ana in the Fifty Shades of Grey movies!
Incase you can’t place these actresses you might recognize Alexis from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Gilmore Girls, Sin City or Mad Men. Ashley was mostly recently Alice in the Twilight series, but she’s also been in Pan Am.
We’re giving you until January 21 to vote, so VOTE!
Back in October we started a debate over who should play Anastasia in the movie. We called it the Sweet 16 of Anastasia Steele, picking 16 of the most popular actresses names who have been thrown out to play Ana. After 3 rounds of voting we have eliminated 14 of those ladies and have come up with the final round:
Alexis Bledel vs Ashley Greene
I admit, I’m a bit surprised, I really thought that Alexandra Daddario would beat Ashley Greene, but you voted and we’re listening. Well wait until after the holidays to have this last round of voting, I know you’re all busy with family, kids and eating lots of food.
So which of these two lovely ladies would you rather see play Anastasia? If you don’t like these choices, then you might prefer our other bracket that will be posted later this week: Alexandra Daddario vs Ashley Greene?
Voting has concluded with Alexis Bledel moving on to the next round.
For those of you who are basketball fans, you know all about March Madness and the Sweet 16. It’s the top 16 teams in college basketball playing to see who is #1. You’ve probably seen the brackets for it with the 8 teams on each side, winners of each game moving on to play other winners. Here’s a link to the brackets from last year if you need a visual. For the Sweet 16 of Ana we want to find what actress the fans want to play Ana in the Fifty Shades movie.
In no particular order, here are the brackets for the Sweet 16 of Anastasia Steele:
Here is how this will work, we will post a debate for each of the pairs, Alexis Bledel vs Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried vs Lucy Hale, etc. The winner of each debate will go on to be debated by the winner of the neighboring debate. Winner of Alexis Bledel vs Emma Watson will go against the winner of Amanda Seyfried vs Lucy Hale. We will post 1 debate a day and each debate will last for 5 days in the first round. We will likely increase that as we get further into the tournament.
Let us know if you have any questions about this process in the comments section. Thank you and good luck to the actresses.
