We started with 16 of the biggest and best brackets around ... and now we're down to four. Though they did it in markedly different fashions, Fug Madness and Foreign Policy have joined Jezebel and Muppet Madness in our Battle of the Brackets Final Four. Of course this means saying farewell to Forbes' Jargon Madness and Vulture's Drama Derby--we hardly knew thee (well, in Vulture's case our voters hardly knew thee--but we'll get to that later). And now it's time for our obligatory moment of silence.
Moving on. Welcome to the Final Four. It's almost a tale of two brackets. In one half of, top seed Jezebel's Sex vs. Chocolate has rolled over the competition to enter the finals. But in the other half of the bracket all of our top seeds have been knocked out. That in mind, here are your Final Four matchups:
*Reminder: Voting Will Close on Thursday at 8 p.m. EDT--giving you enough time to find your television screen for American Idol or a juicy repeat of The Shahs of Sunset or whatever you watch on Thursdays now. So vote, vote, vote:
To get to this spot both brackets had to engage in a civil war of sorts., Jezebel's Sex and Chocolate Bracket had to take down Gawker cousin io9 and its very-popular "Worse SciFi Movie Ever Made" bracket. And that Jezebel's bracket did, by snagging just over 63 percent of the vote. In the other, as the Fug Girls (who often guest blog on New York Magazine's fashion blog, The Cut) themselves put it, "brother pitted against brother" matchup between Fug Madness and Vulture's Drama Derby, it wasn't even close as Fug Madness massacred Vulture's Drama Derby by commanding over 98 percent of the votes -- the most lopsided contest by far.
