Every year, we pack our capes and our facepaint and our poster tubes and trek to San Diego Comic-Con. And every year, we know: There will be a girlcrush. Be it Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley or someone totally new to fawn over. She’ll be witty, she’ll be pretty, and we’ll love her to pieces.
With the glaring lack of Summit and Lionsgate — and therefore “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ — panels in Hall H, it’s a toss-up whether Shai and JLaw will make an appearance at the con. Looks like we’re in dire need of some suggestions for this year’s girlcrush. Who’s it gonna be? Here are our humble suggestions.
Where to find her: Greendale Forever panel, Thursday at 2:15 in Ballroom 20
Why we love her: Just like “Community,” Jacobs is a tenacious, standing her ground. Girlfriend is in everything, including “Hot Tub Time Machine 2″ and an episode of “The Greatest Event In Television History.” Oh, and she looks like Anne Hathaway in a blonde wig. Just look, you’ll see it. We’re intrigued. Separated at birth?
Where to find her: Teen Wolf panel, Thursday at 3:30 in Ballroom 20
Why we love her: She’s the sweetest Banshee we’ve ever seen, and may have even outcharmed her very charming co-stars on her Thursday afternoon panel.
Where to find her: Entertainment Weekly: Women Who Kick Ass panel, Saturday at 4:10 in Hall H
Why we love her: She’s a little rebellious and a lot unpredictable, and we love that she’s popped up in projects as varied as “Horns,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Afternoon Delight.”
Where to find her: Entertainment Weekly: Women Who Kick Ass panel, Saturday at 4:10 in Hall H, “Orphan Black” panel, Friday at 6 in Room 6A
Why we love her: In addition to playing more than half a dozen people on one of our favorite shows, she handled not getting a well-deserved Emmy nomination with aplomb, and is a self-proclaimed sci-fi geek. Plus, she could entertain us all day with all those voices. Like Gollum, but way more fun.
Where to find her: Game of Thrones panel, Friday at 1:40 in Hall H, or Entertainment Weekly: Women Who Kick Ass panel, Saturday at 4:10 in Hall H
Why we love her: She’ll be kicking ass in “Mockingjay” and “Game of Thrones,” and she’s totally womanned up and decided to take strong roles: “I had a little talk with myself,” she said in an interview with Esquire. “I said, ’I have to stop taking these roles where I am just the chick that is throwing herself at the leading man. No disrespect to that role, but I have kind of done it.”
Where to find her: Pretty much everywhere, including her Geek and Sundry lounge on Friday and Saturday.
Why we love her: Not only was she in “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” and many, many other geekish delights, but Day tweets things with the hashtag #mildewcrotch. She is a lady and a delight.
