Analysis: I'm honestly still surprised that Russell beat Alison Brie in the first round, and I think Brie would have given Blunt more of a run for her money. As it is, the British actress has a much higher profile than Russell, with 3 more projects due out in 2011, and a number of big roles lined up for 2012. Interestingly, she's slated to co-star with Brie in 2012's "The Five-Year Engagement", so because of Russell's upset, we were denied a showdown of future co-stars.

Prediction: Blunt with relative ease.
