The Huddle: Our top Hot 100 Picks

The 2010 Hot 100 Poll closes today, so it’s our last chance to try to sway your votes. Here’s who the bloggers chose for their top three this year.

Lesley Goldberg:

1. Sarah McLachlan: I think it’s becoming a game for me to get Sarah McLachlan into as many Huddles as possible.
2. Brandi Carlile: She has a song for every one of my moods.
3. Dorothy Snarker: Who doesn’t like a daily dose of Snark?


1. Christina Hendricks: She is just stunning
2. Jess Origliaso: Beauty, tats, brains, sweetness
3. Kathleen Hanna: Made me rage, made me think, made me dance.

Hmm, I picked all pale people.

The Linster:

1. Elizabeth Mitchell
2. Eve Best
3. Meryl Streep

If I’d known who Chely Wright was when I voted, she probably would be up near the top. What a cutie!

Dorothy Snarker:

1. Tina Fey: I know, duh. But you simply won’t find a smarter, funnier, hotter, dorkier gal on this planet. I want to go to there, times a million.
2. Lena Headey: If scowling sexily was an Olympic sport, Lena would make Michael Phelps an amateur in water wings. Also, I am still petitioning hard for a “You’re a wanker, No. 9!” T-shirt.
3. Padma Lakshmi: I don’t think it’s possible for nature to craft a more serenely perfect-looking woman. All that, and she hosts a show about food. Like I was saying, perfect.

Grace Chu:

1. Lady Gaga

If you can dance in Alexander McQueen‘s gorgeous instruments of foot torture, grace the cover of a magazine wearing a strap-on, demand that the President of the United States listen to those calling for LGBT equality at the National Equality March while selling a kabillion records in both blue and red states, you should be #1 on the Hot 100 list.

Listen, I voted for nine other people, but frankly, I don’t remember. Lady Gaga FTW! Come on, little monsters — vote or die!

Heather Hogan:

Narrowing my Hot 100 from ten to three in public makes me feel like that episode of Friends when Ross laminated his freebie list — like it’s entirely probable that I could have an epic and enduring romance with any of my ten, if only they’d pop over to and read my list.

1. Yvonne Strahovski
2. Karen Gillan
3. Eve Myles

All three of you, call me! Yvonne, bring your gun. Karen, bring the Tardis. Eve, bring that delicious Welsh accent of yours; I want to spend the rest of my life trying to figure out what the hell you’re saying.

Karman Kregloe:

1. Bridget McManus: Duh.
2. Scarlett Johansson: If I weren’t already married, I might begrudge Ryan Reynolds his good fortune.
3. Salma Hayek: Talented, funny, political and willing to nurse a stranger’s baby.

Trish Bendix:

Apparently I’m all about bisexual women this year! Since Grace already dedicated some major love to Lady Gaga, I’ll go with the following as my top 3.

1. Anna Paquin: I already loved her from X-Men, but as Sookie on the super-gay True Blood, I can’t help but be an even bigger Anna fan. Her being bisexual is icing on the rainbow cake.
2. Jillian Michaels: Another woman that has proven herself in her chosen career for years, Jillian is the ultimate fitness ambassador that also happens to be bisexual and is talking about it with major women’s magazines.

3. Nicki Minaj: The number one woman in hip-hop right now, she’s making a name for herself by appearing on all the hottest tracks while preparing her debut album on Young Money. Also, she loves women — very openly.

You have until midnight to vote for your own Top 10!
