Holiday Post #17: And the winner Is...

The votes have been counted and the wait is almost over. It's been a fun 2 weeks, but the voting ended @ midnight on the cusp of 2008. As the ball was hitting the big 2008 sign in Time Square & Dick Clark was wowing us w/ his longevity & survival skills (I'd forgotten he had a stroke), Solstice was in awe of the fact that Miley Cyrus was performing live on TV & that she'd been able to stay up to see it (I was a bit surprised too seeing as she has the Chicken Pox... more on that soon). Yet, while all of this was happening, something bigger than all of us occurred: you let your voices be heard & picked the Visions of Ypsi 2007 Celebrity M.I.L.F. of the Year... or, well, you almost picked her. As was the case last year, it was a close race & in fact has again come down to the tie-breaker vote to be cast by me. In terms of the total # of votes, a few sorry saps got zip (Jennifer Weiner, Nancy Kerrigan, & Elizabeth Hasselbeck & surprisingly J. Lo & Jessica Alba). Had it come down to any of them, I would've cast my tie-breaker on J. Lo, but thankfully, that hasn't had to happen. Here are the results:

Drea de Mateo... 1
Halle Berry... 2
Christina Aguilera... 2
Helena Bonham Carter... 4
Angelina Jolie... 4

W/ Bonham Carter & Jolie tied @ 4 I've had a tough decision to make. Weighing Angelina's T&A & her philanthropic work against Helena's weirdness has been tough, but my decision has been made. After looking through Bonham Carter's body of work, I realized that I've never really liked any of her films other than Maurice & Howard's End. (Perhaps when I see Sweeny Todd I'll have to update my views.) A Room w/ a View is one of the worst Merchant/Ivory films ever. Planet of the Apes is shit. There are much better Hamlets out there. Frankenstein is ridiculous. Mighty Aphrodite is one of the worst Woody Allen films ever. Big Fish & Charlie & the Chocolate Factory are over-rated. Of course, the M.I.L.F. contest isn't just about acting talent. There is also other types of talent to be considered & Angelina has that in spades compared to Helena Bonham Carter. Besides, I actually like some of her films. Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow is cool, Gia is interesting, & she is fantastic in The Good Shepherd. That said, it really comes down to the other talents & as I said before, Angelina has it covered in that department so I now give you


Angelina Jolie

She isn't available for comment, but I'm sure if she were here, she'd say she is honored to join the ranks of Maggie Gyllenhaal & Michelle Williams. Moreover, I would imagine she would thank me for running this contest & giving her yet another platform to work her magic & get her message of peace & caring into all of our homes. Furthermore, she would probably want us to get involved w/ the fight against poverty & hunger & the fight against the genocide in Darfur... oh & she'd probably want us to look @ her tits.

"Room with a View" is one of the best films EVER! And Sweeney Todd was fucking AMAZING largely because of Carter's performance!

Boooooo! Boooooo!

I knew that'd piss you off. I think I'll have to steer clear of Wendy for a while too.

Ohhh, most excellent. As a supporter/enthusiast of hot-psycho-brunettes-disguising-their-inner -freak-with-their-philanthropic-and/or-artistic -prowess, I would have been content if Her Most Hot Angelinaness were second only she were second to Freaky-lena Bonham Carter. The same applies when it's flipped around. So now can we all unite under one banner of freaky hotness? Can't we all just get along?

Unite my ass, Biscodo. Where's her texture? I would be hard pressed to pick Angelina out of a crowd, she is that uninteresting.

I'm with Annette on this one. A bushel of rotten tomatoes for Andre!

Had I been with it enough to vote, i would have likely cast mine for JLO, but alas it would not have mattered.

I'm happy with Angelina...she's about as hot as they come in my book. Although not so much in the picture you chose....?

How could you forget Fight Club? Helen was in that movie, and it's one of my favorites. While I love Angie, and the film Gia, I am disappointed in your ultimate decision.

However, like most Americans, I didn't vote and am only complaining. So take it for what it's worth.

Andre said...

Yeah, I i forget Fight Club. Honestly, I've never really gotten into that movie either though.
