In Pictures: Carla Gugino Is Really Upset with the Pajiba Readership

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | July 10, 2012 | Comments ()


Three votes. THREE VOTES? With upwards of 700 Five Freebies list compiled for the sixth annual Pajiba 10, there were only three votes for Carla Gugino. This is ridiculous. Maybe you didn't realize that Carla Gugino's films have made over $1.5 billion at the office, which is more than even Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe you don't remember her fondly as the first woman to ever break Zack Morris' heart in the "Saved by the Bell" pilot ("Good Morning, Miss Bliss").

Or maybe you've forgotten about Carla Gugino's fondness for stools?


She stares out of windows LIKE A BOSS.


She gets hangnails like everyone else.


Did you know that she's best friends with Connie Britton dating back to their "Spin City" days? I bet they share cosmetic tips.


Did you know she has wings. SHE CAN PROBABLY FLY.


She's wears a suit jacket with her lingerie and stockings. THAT'S CLASSY.


She likes to hang out on beds with or without heels. Just like us!



She does geeky movies, like Sin City and The Watchmen.


And low budget indie flicks, like Electra Luxx.


She's also worked with Olyphant on Pajiba favorite, "Justified."


She's current. She will star as a reporter in a mini-series starting this Sunday called "Political Animals."


And for all the above reasons, we're going to hold voting for the Pajiba 10 open for one more day, should some of you want to amend or add a Five Freebie list.

You know who to cast your vote for, right?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • GwenBear

    Er...Sin City is probably the only thing I can ever remember seeing Carla Gugino in. And therein lies the problem. I don't KNOW her. My freebies list is full of personality, and I know none of hers. Sorry Carla.

  • katethegreat

    Dude, Carla Gugino is practically perfect. She's my secret girlfriend.

  • dsoup

    I am so proud to be one of the three. I have to make sure the other 2 are not around next time I encounter Ms. Gugino. Respect.

  • BWeaves

    Who? Never heard of her.

  • And she rocked one hell of a bustle in The Buccaneers.
    Mr. Julien saw her when he lived in LA. He said she was the most beautiful woman (after first tactfully throwing props to me as he is contractually obligated so to do) he had ever seen in real life. AND YET, she didn't make his Pajiba 5.

  • Lauren

    I DIDN'T REGISTER! Can't amend, but this actually was an egregious mistake because I rather do love Carla Gugino. Soooo... can we just add a vote?

  • POINGjam

    She's cool, but I only really know her from Sin City and that movie didn't have staying power.

  • Jezzer

    She's highly over-rated.

  • Kip Hackman

    The reason Carla Gugino isn't on my freebies list is because I would do all sorts of things for her not-for-free. I don't mean that there would be an exchange of money, per se. Simply that I'd jump in there, and gladly suffer any and all consequences.

  • melissa82

    And I didn't do a ladies list so here it goes:
    Carla Gugino (Are you happy now!?)
    Emma Stone
    Jessica Biel (our asses would combine to make a super hero I think. Granted we can't procreate so there's that...)
    Connie Britton
    Tilda Swinton

  • melissa82

    I've never seen Electra Luxx but now I must (Carla's hot and all, but we all know what shirtless wonder I'm there for. Oh you don't? You're an idiot.)

  • ,

    I was out of town and didn't vote, but since you've gone through all the trouble to extend the deadline:

    a. Britney Spears
    b. Lindsey Lohan
    c. Demi Lovato
    d and e. Olsen twins.

    There. Better?

  • googergieger

    She suffers from stupid face.

  • Sean

    I put her on my list last year. I picked all new ones this year. However, if Ms. Gugino needs comforting, I am available.

  • zeke_the_pig

    To put the 'Bellucci was robbed' sentiment to bed: she doesn't really qualify, because as far as I know the hall of fame is meant to be attractive people. It therefore has no room for god's blueprint for Woman.

  • Sean

    She is in my personal hall of fame. And Belucci is the only woman that a close female friend of mine would have sex with.

  • Eve

    Since my list was incomplete (only four women), I'm going to add Carla Gugino. She's talented, beautiful and looks incredibly hot in Sin City.

    Plus, she looks even hotter (by association) whenever she's next to Oscar Isaac -- I really wouldn't mind having a threesome with them.

  • Tenacious EJ

    Now, if you'd really wanted to sway us you'd have posted the still from Sin City when she wakes up nekkid and finds Marv in her apartment. You know the one. The silhouette. Yeah, THAT one.

  • John W

    Is there time to do some box stuffing?

    Ballot box! I meant ballot box stuffing!

  • Nadine

    *siiiiiiiiiiigh* oh Carla. Ooooooooooh Carla.

  • Steph

    Well since the voting is still open, can we talk about the fact that Walton Goggins didn't get more votes? Boyd Freaking Crowder, people!! Come ON.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I will agree to change my list if you will agree to pose in a suit jacket, lingerie and stockings and make that shit classy. I'm calling you out, Rowles.

  • Pookie

    Let me tell you broads something and let it be a lesson to all of you. Shoes, shoes, and shoes, it is all about the shoes. You put on the right type of shoes at the right time and the world will fall to its knees, it doesn’t matter about the style, its all about the look. I saw some broad one day at a gas station with some tennis shoes on, the way she wore those shoes made me pop a boner right there in my car, I had my son in the back seat so I couldn’t approach her to strike up a conversation, if I did he would have told my wife as soon as we got home. Anyway ladies, it’s the shoes.

  • BWeaves

    Pookie, please explain this to my husband. He still doesn't get it, and we've been married over 30 years.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Man knows what he's talking about.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    First time for everything.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Oh, no you don't. I see what you're doing. I'm not wasting my vote on someone who's been maneuvered out of contention. First you leave Monica Bellucci out of the hall of fame & double-list Alison Brie. Now there's shilling for Carla Gugino once it's too late.

    I call shenanigans, tampered ballots, stuffed boxes and hanging chads. Also, bias and tomfoolery. (Why these all sound kinda dirty?)

    This post and others like it are *cover* for your well-established and unjustified distain for the spectacular Ms. Gugino. You promote her when it's too late. How do I know? You won't review Judas Kiss. BTW, what the hell happened to under-appreciated gems? Judas Kiss would be perfect. Oh wait. Now I get it. You killed under-appreciated gems just to stiff Carla Gugino. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!

  • L.O.V.E.

    He did what now to "stiff Carla Gugino"?

    Where are these under-appreciated gems, and how do I go about "killing" them?

  • Pookie

    Listen BA, just let Rowles change the rules whenever he wants to and be happy he didn't post any pictures of his favorite boy-toy.

  • Um, yeah, you're right, DR. She's on the cusp of hall of fame, I'd argue. I guess she's been off the screen a fair bit the past few years and we're a fickle bunch, quickly distracted by bright shiny objects. Wait, weren't you the one who just insisted on pushing ScarJo on us, despite the clear contrast in visual appeal and artistic merit. And, ScarJo's boobs aren't even in the same country as those of Ms Gugino, AND we get to see them from time to time. Please give her one vote from me.

  • jthomas666

    I may stare at that stool pic all day.

  • Groundloop

    Out of context, that's incredibly odd.

  • lowercase_ryan

    although I'm hard-pressed (no pun intended) to think of a woman who's hair adds so damn much to her sexiness. I mean just wow.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Fittingly, Connie Britton also belongs on that list.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Ooh now I feel so smug because I had her on my list. I almost feel like scientists came from the future and confirmed the suspicion I've always had that I'm more evolved than all of you because my perfect super-evolved genes allow me to lust after Carla Gugino.

  • lowercase_ryan

    or maybe you're a puppet of the pajiba machine. Doing DR's sinister bidding. Think for yourself. You're deep in the Matrix but there is no spoon. Damn the man. Save the empire.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Resistance is futile.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I think I used to get her confused with Rachel Weisz. Just a little...

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Well now I'm in a paradise where they star in a romantic caper like Thelma & Louise, but instead of suicide, they ride off into the sunset together. And...uh...Monica Bellucci should star as Carla's ex-girlfriend who's trying to win her back. I'll just stop here because I think I just had an aneurysm.

  • ,

    Would you settle for a reboot of "Bound"?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Er yes, with those three actresses. Because damn.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I immediately thought of that Bellucci three-way too.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Great minds, Admin, great minds...I bet we'll also discover the secret to world peace, and it will involve a Weisz-Gugino-Bellucci three-way. Someone notify the Nobel Peace Prize committee.

  • ceebee_eebee

    WHY DIDN'T I VOTE?! I would drink this woman's bath water. I would kick a litter of puppies for the chance to touch her hair. Creepy? Perhaps. But LOOK AT HER. She's perfection.

  • DeistBrawler

    I'm not changing my list and you can't make me. This is just pressure. Pressure. So that one of your favorites can make the list. Well I'm not buying it. Nope. Not going to happen. So you can just fuck right off.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I demand you reopen the polls!!

    (That's what she said)

  • While I left a space on my list for one more woman, I am afraid she doesn't trip my trigger in that way. I do like her as an actress, though.

  • lowercase_ryan

    GD you Rowles, THAT WAS NOT FAIR!!

  • Seriously -- it's an outrage!

  • Kate at June

    Sorry, nope. Melissa Leo levels of desperation on you there, Dustin.

  • Stephen Nein

    Carla who?
