Filo/CBS; LifetimeWith today being Thanksgiving Eve, our minds are on the poultry heaps, canned sauce slices, and awkward family conversations that await us over the long weekend. But before we break for the holiday gorging, let’s stop for a minute and give thanks to the unsung heroes of music, film, and television, the under-appreciated entertainers whose one shot at making a “Best Of 2010” list lies in your hands. Today we have Project Runway castoff Mondo Guerra duking it out with Big Brother mistress of ceremonies Julie Chen in the Reality TV bracket. The scripted TV category features an epic drama-comedy showdown as Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) battles Yvette Nicole Brown (Community). Over in Movies, 14th-seeded Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), who just added The Crazies’ Joe Anderson to the pile of under-appreciated corpses left in her wake, goes up against Iron Man 2‘s third- or fourth-billed star, Sam Rockwell. In the Music bracket, Allison Iraheta moves on from her victory over fellow Idol contender Elliott Yamin to meet Killers’ frontman-turned-solo-artist Brandon Flowers. Who will advance to the Final 8 and who will be left out to dry like a picked-over turkey carcass? Click here to see the entire bracket, and then vote, people! Vote!
