My Weekend Hot 100

I agonized over it. I worried over it. I beat myself up over it. I nearly beat other people up over it. But finally, after painstaking deliberation and not an entirely small amount of alcoholic encouragement, here they are. My AfterEllen.com Hot 100 Top 10. This not being a presidential election cycle, it’s probably the most important vote I’ll cast this year. I kid. Sort of. But, seriously, the AE Hot 100 is always a fun time of year, something done in the spirit of respect and appreciation (and, yes, a healthy dose of flat-out objectification) for these fine women’s work.

Some of my picks are perennial favorites. (Like I was ever going to leave My Fake TV Wife off the list – or Padma.) But this year also has a smattering of new and very worthy faces. I really did agonize. I mean, Angie Harmon isn’t on the list because as much as she is hot like fire, her politics get in the way of my total uninhibited wallowing in The Sexy. Amy Poehler didn’t make the list because it almost felt like cheating on Tina. Hot Cop Heather Peace isn’t on the list because there are only 10 spots and I’m only human, dammit. Achele fans know that I came so close, but I couldn’t totally Gleeify my list.

But enough apologizing. Bring on the hotties. My Top Ten.
  1. Tina Fey
  2. Naya Rivera
  3. Lena Headey
  4. Padma Lakshmi
  5. Jennifer Beals
  6. Sara Ramirez
  7. Kate Winslet
  8. Tilda Swinton
  9. Heather Morris
  10. Pippa Middleton

There you have it. There are 10 of the finest, most amazing and, of course, hot women on the planet. So, I’ve shown you mine. Now you show me yours. Happy weekend, all.

Nice list! You made me realize I forgot Hot Sister Pippa :-( I can't wait to see the top 10 this year, I have feeling it's gonna be very different from last year...

Chesmd said...

Goshdarnit! I forgot to add Pippa to my list. Oh well i did have Heather Peace (the list needs more hot out women!) and Lena Heady so i think i've met my Brit quota.

We have Sara and Lena in common. Major girlcrushes.

foreveranonymous7 said...

I fully, fully approve of your top ten. XD

That said, Naya Rivera (rawr) and Sara Ramirez are probably the only two that would make it onto my list. I haven't actually sat down to think about it, but I know Jillian Michaels and Pink would definitely be on there too.

The other six spots I'm not sure about. Too many fine women to choose from, like Adele, Sarah Shahi, Stana Katic, Katie McGrath, Dita Von Teese, Kirsten Vangsness, Christina Hendricks, etc.

Love your blog. <3

Get Set.Go said...

OLIVIA WILDE? How does she not make it to the list?!

Mia said...

Dont mind if I do:
1. catherine mcneil
2. freja beha
3. amanda seyfried
4. andrea petkovic (tennis player)
5. jennifer connelly
6. evan rachel wood
7. sandra bullock
8.elizabeth mitchell
9.frida gustavsson (model)
10. amber heard

Very honourable mentions: kate winslet, mary louise parker, michelle pfeifer (these 3 are eternal and always my favourites), angelina jolie (of course) and shay mitchell (the new girl).

sonje said...

Where's Anna Torv?! How could you leave Anna Torv off you list?!

Crystal Chappell is definitely on my list. I know you say you don't watch soaps, but season 1 of Venice would take perhaps an hour of your time AND IT WOULD BE SO WORTH IT. AE must have the DVD lying around somewhere.

Redbone210 said...

1. Sandra Bullock
2. Angelina Jolie (not current skinny Angie but former kickbutt Angie)
3. Kate Winslet
4. Sara Ramirez
5. Heather Morris (the dance video put her over the top for me - rawr)
6. Kate Beckinsale
7. Rachel Weisz
8. Anna Paquin
9. Clementine Ford
10. Wanda Sykes (what? She’s hilarious, around my age and has great cleavage!)

Achelesox said...

Nice list! I forgot Padma, damnit janet, now I'm thinking maybe I need to re-jig it. Here is my list:
1. Lea Michele
2. Dianna Agron
3. Rhona Mitra
4. Olivia Williams
5. Natasha McElhone
6. Penelope Cruz
7. Toni Collette
8. Lydnsey Fonseca
9. Sonya Walger
10. Melanie Laurent

Those Glee girls, gah, I JUST CANT.... I love their weird touche-feely jewellery sharing relationship. Every time I think oh well maybe they're just best friends they do strange things like the Met gala stuff. The matching rings are the greatest thing ever.
Honourable mentions go to Lena Headly, Julianna Moore, Sanaa Lathan, Thandie Newton, Missy Peregram, Anna Friel, Kate Walsh, Lauren Graham, Gabrielle Christiansen, Mandy Musgrave, Jessica Biel, Jessica Garner, Liv Tyler and the Deschannel sisters.
These lists are hard, even if it was top 100 I reckon I'd run out of spaces!

vdpro said...

I just couldn't help it, my list is totally Gleeful :D
Naya Rivera
Dianna Agron (btw, did ya see her new haircut? HOT!)
Lea Michelle
Heather Morris
Angelina Jolie (will always, ALWAYS be on my list. My first love :)
Mila Kunis
Kate Walsh
Cate Blanchett
Kate Winslet
Kate Beckinsale

idgiepug said...

SWINTON!!!!

Kirsty said...

Och I forgot hot sister, and Sara Ramirez. Fail. And I agonised over the list. I'm going to get started on the 2012 list right now so I don't miss anyone off...

Carmen SanDiego said...

Evan Rachel Wood
Rachel Maddow
Sara Ramirez
Heather Peace
Tina Fey
Jennifer Beals
Cobie Smulders
Lucy Liu
Elizabeth Mitchell

Emily said...

I forget exactly what my list was, but I know I substituted Princess Kate for Hot Sister Pippa. I'm sorry, I love me some Pippa nowadays, but to me Kate will always be the more attractive sister. She's honestly just soooo delicious

I know my list included Olivia Wilde (obviously), Mila Kunis, Shay Mitchell, Serinda Swan, Taylor Cole, Kate Middleton, Emma Watson and Naya Rivera. Right now I can't seem to remember the last two for sure but I think it was Kathryn Prescott and Ruby Rose.

Sasha said...

Pippa?! Seriously?! A woman upstages her sister at her own wedding by wearing a hat resembling vagina dentata that would have made Lady Gaga cringe and suddenly she's the toast of the town. *eyeroll*

Kathryn said...

@ Sasha: Beatrice, William's cousin, wore that hat rather than Pippa, who is Kate's sister and didn't wear a hat.

Anonymous said...

you don't have one gay woman on your list...

TheWeyrd1 said...

I completely approve of your list, which is a good thing since I kept procrastinating to the point that I completely forgot to do mine...first miss since the AE HOT 100 started. I actually feel disappointed in myself. I probably would have chosen Jodie Foster instead of Pippa though...she's my Tina Fey...even though the thing with Mel G. is quite disturbing.

Anonymous said...

list is good - all the ladies hot in different ways - but Tilda is hot in the most different way; she is a great fantastic beautiful hot puzzle.

Anonymous said...

Sasha, you need to brush up on your brits!

And honestly even if Pippa had worn 'that' hat, noone would have noticed, comeon who would get past that arse.........
