The back half of the Elite Eight awaits your judgment.
CATE BLANCHETT vs. ELIZABETH BANKS
Cate: Jesus. Another Hunger Games star? How many of you are there?
Elizabeth: We’re taking over the world; it’s no big deal.
Cate: That you are. One insane print at a time.
Elizabeth: Thank you!
Cate: That wasn’t a compliment.
Elizabeth: Sure it was. Look at us. What’s more phenomenal than an insane print?
Cate: A fashionable sweatshirt?
Elizabeth: Nice try, but no.
Cate: Says the woman running around in a shiny pink balloon halfway through deflating.
Elizabeth: Again, that sounds totally awesome to me.
Cate: Well, at least you’re a worthy opponent for someone as fabulous as I am. I’m so tired of being matched up with mindless C-list tweenaged starlets.
Elizabeth: Hear, hear. Those twenty-something girls can suck a bag of dicks.
Cate: Amen! Forty is the new black! Er, white!
Elizabeth: Yaaas, kween!
Cate: Plus, we’ve still got our blonde hair, our stunning beauty, and our embellished lace gowns.
Elizabeth: And, more importantly, our money.
ZOE SALDANA vs. EMMA WATSON
Zoe: Culottes? Are you fucking serious right now?
Emma: They’re making a comeback, I swear.
Zoe: I can’t believe I brought two new lives into a world where culottes are making a comeback.
Emma: It’s real. Get on board, babydoll.
Zoe: Sigh. I suppose I’ve seen stranger things in my day.
Emma: Like the paparazzo behind me who looks like he has a camera for a penis?
Zoe: That, or whatever the hell you’re wearing right now.
Emma: Mere mortals might look like they got caught in a few rolls of fabric in this outfit, but I am undoubtedly pulling it off.
Zoe: Fine, fine, you’re a risk-taker. I guess I can respect that, one fashion maverick to another.
Emma: Much appreciated. So, how are the twins?
Zoe: That’s kind of a personal question, don’t you think? I thought Brits were supposed to be demure or something.
Emma: Um, I was talking about your babies.
Zoe: Oh! Me too! I was totally kidding! They’re great!
Emma: That’s nice. Now can we wrap this thing up already? I have places to be.
Zoe: Wait, just one more dramatic couture pose before we go.
Emma: Sorry, but the best I can give you is a half-smile. It’s been a really long week.
