I'm ready, I'm so ready. Hi, I'm Karli Bulnes, and welcome to Pop face off. The 6th annual pop sugar 100 is off and running and we're using our famous pop face off game to help determine the ranking. We thought it would be fun if we put a couple of our editors to the test. So today we got: Seasoned pop culture pros Molly Goodson and Lauren Turner. Hey guys! Hi! Let me explain the rules of the game. two celebrities are going to pop up on the monitor just like if you were playing at home and you have to tell me which star had the bigger year. Now if our readers agree, you get a point and you keep control of the game, but if they don't agree, you lose your turn. Now, there's also a twist. If you want to challenge the other contestant, and you're right you get two points and take control of the game But if you're wrong we take a point away, following me so far? Got it. First to five wins. Ryan Gosling versus Zooey Deschanel. It's a great battle to kick off the game. They both had huge years, of course the way Zooey Deshanel has New Girl, which is one of my favorite new shows. Yes. But, Ryan Gosling, it was his year. He was everywhere from Crazy Stupid Love to Drive. to his new love with Eva Mendes. I am going with Ryan Gosling. I have to agree. Ides of March as well, it was all over the place. It's unanimous, Ryan Gosling. Let's see if the reader's agree. 59 percent of them do, Molly good job, you're on the board with one point. Now we've got Alicia Keys vs. Nicole Kidman. Alicia Keys vs. Nicole Kidman is a tough one. Alicia Keys had a great year, of course but in this game I actually tend to defer to movie stars, so I think that Nicole Kidman's gonna do it. Lauren what do you say? I think you're probably right about that. I'm not ready to disagree yet. Alright, Nicole Kidman, 62 percent of fans agree with Molly. She's on the board again with two points to Lauren zero. Gotta get in the game. We already had Zooey Deschanel, but this time she's up against Justin Timberlake. What do you say? J.T. newly engaged man, has a wedding on the way this summer, allegedly and Zoey Deschanel again, New Girl. I'm gonna go with Zoey D. I'm gonna actually disagree with you. I think it's Justin. i know he's one of your faves. I do love a little J.C. Alright we've got a disagreement here. Molly's going for Zoey. Lauren's saying Mr. J.C. let's see, it is Justin. Fifty-one percent of our readers say Justin had a bigger year than Zooey Deschanel so Lauren now has two points, tied with Molly, and she's in control of the game. Lauren are you ready? I'm ready, I'm so ready. We've got Rachel Weisz vs Ashton Kutcher. Ashton Kutcher, he had a big year on TV. He took over for Charlie. And Rachel Weisz, I mean she got married. Secret wedding. wedding which is very exciting but I think I'm going to go with Ashton on this one. You sure? I'm sure. Alright, I'm not going to disagree on this. Both say Ashton and so did 51 percent of our readers, Lauren pulls ahead with three points to Molly's two. We've got Michael Fasbender versus Naomi Watts. Now with 51 percent of our readers Saw a lot of Michael this year. We saw a lot of Michael. We saw all of Michael. A whole lot of Michael. There are some new and serious Michael Fassbender fans. Out there this year. The lovely Naomi Watts, I do love her. But I kind of think it's going to go with Michael on this one, just because of everything. I would like disagree for the sake of the game but I just can't. It's gotta be Michael Fassbender. I'm going to call for a count on this. Alright. Now each contestant gets one chance per game to call for a count. And what that means is, you not only have to guess which star has the bigger year, you have to guess the percentage of readers that agree with you. How many fans do you think that voted for Michael Fassbender. I think Michael Fassbender is going to win this but I think it's gonna be pretty close, so I'm gonna go with 59 percent. Molly, whats your? And I'm going to go with 60 percent. OH. Very competitive game here. 51%. Look at that. Lauren stays in control. I'm on a roll. You are. Gets taken away. Lauren is in the lead and she still is going for the next point. We've got Tom Cruise vs. Garrett Hedlund. These are some sexy men here. Alright Garrett Hedlund he just On the Road with Kristen Stewart and he's so adorable, but I'm going to have to say Tom Cruise for sure, Mission Impossible, hot action star, he's got Rock of Ages coming out, and he's shirtless looking pretty good, so I think this is a no brainer. Molly? I gotta go for it, Garrett Hedlund. Go, Garrett, go. Sixty-six percent of fans agree that Tom Cruise had the bigger year. Lauren is our winner, congratulations. Molly always doing great Good game. Good game. Now, if you want to play your own version of Pop Faceoff just head to PopSugar.com for your chance to win $2,500.
