Kate Winslet, Dame Helen Mirren, and the entire female cast of Sherlock were shown no mercy in Round 1 the Anglo Fan Favorites women’s tournament and have been eliminated. We move on to the Round of 16 , which, as usual, is heavy on Doctor Who and Harry Potter alumni. (Don’t worry, Game of Thrones and Merlin fans: you are still in the mix.)
The rules remain the same: each week you’ll vote for winners in a round of matchups, narrowing down the field until we have one woman left — the Anglo Fan Favorites Woman of 2013. Each round is re-seeded so that the previous round’s top vote-getter faces the woman advancing with the lowest vote total. Vote hourly to make sure your favorites move on to the next round.
Round 2 voting ends Thursday, September 12 at 11 am ET.

Sherlock and Doctor Who are up against each other for two prizes at the National Television Awards this month.
The shows - both run by writer and producer Steven Moffat - are up for best drama, along with Downtown Abbey and Merlin.
Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock, are in the running for the best actor prize.
Winners will be announced at London’s O2 Arena on 23 January.
Moffat said: “Well this is very flattering, but also terrifying. I hope everyone votes with tremendous care and the result is an exact draw between both shows.”
Karen Gillan, who bowed out last year as the Doctor’s companion Amy Pond, is nominated for the best female drama performance.
She is up against comedy star Miranda Hart for her role in Call The Midwife, Suranne Jones for Scott and Bailey and Sheridan Smith for Mrs Biggs, in which she played the wife of Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs.
In the best male drama performance category, Smith and Cumberbatch are up against Colin Morgan, the star of Merlin, and Daniel Mays for his performance as Ronnie Biggs in Mrs Biggs.
