CNN readers' favorites: Celebrity women – Earlier this month, we asked CNN's readers to vote for what they loved the most in entertainment this year. The competition was fierce among the top male and female celebs, but we narrowed it down to your top picks. Let's start with the ladies:
No. 10: Sandra Bullock – Sandra Bullock has kept a low profile this year, but her absence has only made fans' hearts grow fonder. Then again, she is "America's Sweetheart."
CNN readers' favorites: Celebrity men – The race in the celebrity men category was extremely tight, with most of the top 10 stars neck and neck for placement. Here's how you voted:
No. 8: Brad Pitt – CNN's readers have clearly forgiven "Killing Them Softly" star Brad Pitt for that Chanel commercial he did this fall. When not confusing us with vague statements about perfume, he's been focused on political causes, not unlike his fiancee, Angelina Jolie.
No. 5: Joseph Gordon-Levitt – He doesn't get a lot of coverage in celebrity weeklies, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the hardest-working men in Hollywood. In 2012 alone, the actor starred in four releases "The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper," "Premium Rush" and "Lincoln."
