Last Friday, Fark ran it's annual Headline of the Year contest, which we're running a bit ahead of schedule this year (I know, it's messing with those of you who expect it the last week of the year). This week we're running the Headline of the Year contest for the subtabs. These are the 20 top-voted headlines for the entertainment tab for 2011.

"PBS starts up a channel in England. At last, British people will finally get an opportunity to see Monty Python, Doctor Who, and Fawlty Towers"

Some mod must really have gotten a kick out of this, as it was insta-greened. I don't think it was one of my finer efforts, and isn't even in the same league as the Bruce Willis one, but thank you for the nom nom nom anyways.

Congrats to the nominees, but they pale in comparison to last year's Michael J. Fox and Katy Perry headlines, which were so deservingly Winner and Runner Up.
