Who Won 2019?

We’ve got a simple question for you: Who Won 2019? Who captured the nation’s hearts and imaginations? Who dominated memes, podcasts, think pieces, and watercooler conversations?

Tuesday, January 7th, we're coming to BookBub to host an open-forum debate over who won the year. As we speak, we’re creating an NCAA-style bracket full of 2019 heavyweights. Baby Yoda. The US Women’s World Cup Team. Avengers End Game. There will be options from the worlds of pop culture, sports, games, music, movies, business and life in general. And we need your help to fill out the rest of the bracket. Got something we absolutely have to include? Submit it in the form below.

Each round, we’ll announce a matchup and then take arguments from you, the crowd. In previous years, arguments have been alternately passionate, scientific, esoteric, or just plain absurd. People who don't want to make arguments and just listen can, people who want to analyze pop culture events on a granular level like no human ever has before... they can do that too. Meanwhile, we’ll have a host there to make sure no one rambles on or hogs the microphone.

When the dust settles, we’ll put the matter to a vote, the winner will advance to the next round, and we’ll go to a subsequent matchup until ultimately one final champion is crowned.

Thanks! We can't promise we'll include your suggestions, but we will weigh them with the serious consideration they deserve and do our best to incorporate the top submissions.
