Fug Madness 2011 Bracket

And so there you have it: All four Fug Madness brackets, compiled through a very complicated algorithm incorporating approximate level of fame, depth of fug, quantity of fug, and other various intangibles that might include how caffeinated we were at the time. We hope you have fun with this year’s tournament. Better luck next year, Emma Stone.

Here is the completed bracket:

That is the clickable, printable JPEG, or here is the downloadable PDF version: Fug Madness 2011 Bracket.

We’ll see you here tomorrow for the play-in game, and then the first round starts in earnest on Thursday. Limber up the voting fingers, and say it with me: WOOOOOO.

    Yay! Is it cool if I post the image on my blog? (I promise appropriate linkage and crediting, if that’s a word.) I think I need to be publicly accountable for my picks this year.

  3. yvetterene

    Just printed off my bracket! Let’s do this ya’ll!!!

  4. Julie

    I just filled this out and hung it on my cubicle wall. I am NOT ASHAMED! And I have Leona Lewis winning it all. Crop tops are the devil’s handiwork.

    Oh joy, oh rapture! Now Fug Madness can offically begin. Sorry, Fug Girls, for asking if there would be a bracket in the first FM 2011 post. Apparently, I did not read all the way to the very end of that post and reading truly is fundamental! I knew you would not let Fug Nation down. Game on!

  6. Styrch

    Am I blind? I totally didn’t see Bai Ling anywhere. That’s like a first since I started following this.

  7. vandalfan

    WOOO! fully loaded and ready to deploy.

  8. Stefanie

    My money (literally, just placed a bet with a coworker) is on Taylor.

    Styrch, No Bai this year due to her personal issues. (Currently in Rehab)

  9. Carolina Girl

    @Stefanie, does “Celebrity Rehab” count as actual, real, honest-to-God rehab? I mean, they let that delusional chick from The Real Housewives of DC get on and she’s not addicted to anything (other than fame whoring).

    By next year, pray God, Emma Stone better be back to red hair and looking fantastic at all times. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to sacrifice a copy of Lucky to make sure that happens.

  11. Amanda in Austin

    Seriously, ladies. Fug Madness just might be the highlight of my whole year (at least, my year in blogs). You ladies are ridiculous with this stuff, and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m going to predict this year’s winner is Momsen. She was my pick to win last year, so I’m sticking with her. Go tragic!

  12. Katy

    SWINTON v Bieber! That’s like the gods taking on the mortals. Bieber has no chance.

  13. Lisa

    My Final 4 – Taylor, Leona, Paz and Aubrey.

    Momson FTW!

  14. Kate

    I would just like to thank you guys for how much work you put into this every year. Which, in turn, means I put less work into my actual job every March. Much appreciated!

  15. YNL

    Love you guys SO MUCH for this!
    I believe in this final 4: Momsen, Paz, Katy Perry, and a surprise showing from Ginnifer Goodwin.

  16. nmlhats

    I look forward to Fug Madness every year! Thanks for the fun!

    Inspired by Fug Madness, I created March Music Madness for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Guild…if you love classical music, please feel free to play on our FB page!

  17. Valerie Beach Ruiz

    SWINTON will crush Bieber!! Looking forward to another excellent Fug Madness.

  18. Gabby


  19. Persimmon

    WOOOOOOOO for sure!

    I think it’ll come down to Momsen vs. either Paz de la Huerta or Nicki Minaj. From there? Anybody’s game, ladies.

  20. Megan

    Rita Wilson was ROBBED!! I didn’t even realize she was on the bubble, I thought she was a lock. ROBBED!!!

  21. Jessica

    I love bball, and I love the fugly. This is truly the most wonderful time of the year.

  22. Stefanie

    @Carolina Girl, Im not sure if it should count or not, I was just saying what the Fug Girls said a few posts back!

  23. Dana

    @ Julie not only crop tops but the hideous lip dresses of about a month ago.

  24. Bambi Anne Dear

    @Stefanie: Bai is in rehab? Shocked…..

  25. Poppy

    I cannot wait for Florence Welch vs Kristen Steward. Indie fug!

  26. ari jayes

    I like this article,its very interesting..!

  27. corriner

    And Ginnifer Goodwin comes outta nowhere to win the whole thing! That’s a Cinderella story to melt your Fug Madness heart right there…

  28. Styrch

    I think I’m short sighted when i work out my brackets. I just can’t get past Gaga’s meat suit. Of course, how much leeway do we give her since she is Gaga?

  29. Adria

    Hey, ari jayes, no one likes spammers! Get the heck outta here and stay outta here! (Balls one hand into fist and makes karate-chop motion with the other, accompanied by high kick.)

  30. The Other Molly

    It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year!!!
    With the outfits all fugging
    We’re Diet Coke chugging
    Fug Madness Is Here!!!
    It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year!!

  31. Megomatic

    @ Styrch – It really is fascinating, isn’t it? Not just the concept of a meat suit, but what an unlikely pairing of words: Meat + Suit. What a linguistic rarity. Our Lady will go far this year, I’m sure.

  32. Moi

    Best time of the year. Ever.

  33. jeannette


    did you see bai ling is at celeb rehab with MiLo?

  34. Kelsey

    I just put in my dream picks, and I will be so excited if these matches actually happen: Momsen v. Ke$ha: Battle of the Hot Mess, Katy v. Legsly: Boobs Faceoff, Brad Pitt v. Tom Brady: Who wore it scruffier?

    So excited, thank you ladies!

  35. karen

    i hope i am doing this right, i messed up last year. my basketball obsessed husband is helping me this year. anyway, if i AM doing it right the Bjork bracket is INSANE. mind-blowingly eyeball-meltingly, attention-depraved/deprived INSANE.

  36. Suzy

    I’m picking Taylor Momsen to take this one ALL THE WAY!

  37. Elena from Toronto

    I have my top four picks as Momsen (naturally, although Katerina comes in with a close second), Rihanna (Leighton misses it by a lace onesie), Nicki (suck it Gaga) and a surprise appearance by JSimp, who thwarts Leona’s croptops for everyone campaign.

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN LADIES (and I’m sure a few gents)!

    Okay apparently I don’t know how to use HTML tags. My answer was bold. Perhaps too bold!
