Elite Eight of the Maryland Film/TV Showdown: The Divine Region

There's not much time left to crown the best of Baltimore film and TV. Will it come from the Boogie, Divine, Clarice Starling or Avon Barksdale region? We're in the Elite Eight, and though we've seen some favorites fall by the wayside, plenty of Charm City's gems are still left. Be sure to come back and vote in the Final Four to help us get one step closer to announcing a winner. In case you missed the original 64, here's the first round, with descriptions of the "teams."


The Divine Region

Best of John Waters

(1) Hairspray vs. (3) Cry-Baby

Will Divine take home his namesake region, or will it succumb to Johnny Depp? Granted, he doesn't play the leading lady, but "Hairspray" spotlights Divine as Edna Turnblad, the mother of "pleasantly plump" Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad. Voters almost unanimously chose "Hairspray" over "Female Trouble." A showing against "Cry-Baby" will likely be much closer. The latter edged out "Pink Flamingos" and features an utterly dreamy Depp as a 1950s Baltimore bad boy.
