Psych's Juliet Tries to Topple Castle's Kate in 'Law-Enforcement Crushes' Tourney

Psych‘s Juliet O’Hara and Castle‘s Kate Beckett have barely broken a sweat advancing to Round 3, Day 3 of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, but only one will advance to the Quarterfinals.

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

    Remember that time Stana Katic was gorgeous and that other girl looks like a sad American Girl Doll?

  2. MS says:

    Stana you are fantastic to your fans and very good to them in meet and greets. On top of that you light up our tv screens with your acting skills, and the Beckett character is so real. Not to mention your are totally gorgeous. I don’t watch psyche – so I have no idea about the Jules character – sorry psyche fans. It is Beckett and Stana for my vote – ALWAYS!

  3. vale says:

    PLEASE! Kate Beckett>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> everyone else

  4. Anon says:

    Definitely Beckett!

  5. Jennie says:

    How could you not vote for Stana? She’s the most gorgeous and beautiful most of us know, and if you don’t think so and voting for “Julie” or “Juliet” or something (sorry guys, too lazy to scroll back up) then I respect your vote, I just ask you not to dump your crap on Stana because to a lot of us, especially me, she is my role model. I honestly look up to her AND her character, so please leave her “crazy fans” alone and vote for whoever.
    Just tryin to prevent fights. Geez guys, just look up to whoever you want and keep your opinions to yourselves!

  6. AlexH. says:

    Beckett… no contest for me. Even though the other chick is really pretty as well. :)

  7. OurMrsParker says:

    So much drama…I cast my vote for Kate Beckett, because I’m head over heels for the character (and the actress). I do like Maggie Lawson, from what I’ve seen her in–Nancy Drew and then in Psych, and while I have watched Psych, it’s not my current tv obsession. Both are attractive, but you can only pick one. Let’s try and be civil, both sides? No need to be catty. Though I know that my saying anything isn’t going to stop people from acting immature. We’ll see how the poll goes.

  8. Leah says:

    Stana Katic hands down! That woman made me doubt my orientation!

  9. Kerry says:

    maggie lawson should be winning!

  10. Emmanuelle Works says:

    I’m voting for Beckett! I watch both shows and admit Jules is very crushable too but Beckett, well, she needs it more and she’s so adorable and heartbreaking.:)

  11. Reyane says:

    A poll where I don’t have to choose between Supernatural and Castle! FINALLY! *does a happy dance*

    But yeah, totally going for Beckett here. Castle has my explanation for this here: “I’m looking for my partner. She’s a pretty girl, thinks she can leap tall buildings in a single bound, carries the weight of the world on her shoulder, and yet still manages to laugh at some of my jokes.”

    I mean, what’s not to love about her?

  12. Emily says:

    I gotta vote for my hometown girl Maggie Lawson!! You make us all really proud!

  13. I'mREALLYAnnoyed says:

    My first thing: I vote for Beckett. Why? Well, I don’t watch Psych haha. Also, she has a real life. Come on guys, give the poor girl a break. She was shot in the chest. And her mom was murdered. And they never found the killer. If that were me, I would have PTSD, and have some problems.
    But anyway, this isn’t the point I came here to do.
    I read comments like “Yeah! Go Beckett!” or “Kate! Always”, something simple like that from the Castle fans. And then from Psych fans:(Not exact quotes, just an example) “Jeez Castle fans, you’re so obnoxious.” or “I hate Castle fans because they put other actors/shows down.” or “Castle fans are so unfair, they just sit here and vote.” And my thoughts are “Um, you are the first from the comment thread so far to put anyone down. Saying “Stana (or Beckett) makes me puke.’ And we can only vote once.” Do all you just sit here and wait for a Castle related poll to put us down? I mean seriously. You say we are mean….
    My final thought is: I’m not trying to be mean, I’m just stating some things. From what I have seen, it kinda makes me sick to my stomach. A tv show is a tv show. And the actors and crew members are nice to each other, so why can’t the fans be? How would you feel if one Stana or Maggie were reading these comments?
    Take your hands off the keyboard. THINK before you type. Try to be nice, everyone loves a tv show and putting down actors/shows/fans is NOT a good way to get along. Okay, I think I’m done…

  14. Keegan says:

    Why would someone even TRY to compete with Stana?

  15. ls says:

    Detective Kate Beckett. Nuff said.

  16. BAMF says:

    Hello Stana !Bye Juliet!

  17. Cayenne says:

    Stana / Kate… ALWAYS~

  18. Kelsie says:

    I can’t believe all this hate going around. Why do people have to hate? Stanatics, don’t hate on people who don’t like Stana/Beckett. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. And the people who are voting for this Juliet chick, whoever she is, don’t hate on those of us who are voting for Kate. I personally do not find this Juliet person attractive, let alone crushable. Stana is the most beautiful woman alive, IN MY OPINION. So the fandoms need to stop with their fanatic hating and insults and just vote SILENTLY. It’s kind of obvious who’s winning here, so there are no comments needed. GO BECKETT!!!!!!

    • Kelly says:

      Way to tell them Kelsie! I’m a STANATIC all the wayyy!!! I couldn’t believe some of the comments about Stana. I didn’t think it way possible to hear read something like that about her..GO BECKETT!!!!

  19. Kelsie says:

    *no HATEFUL comments needed, my bad

  20. Emily Cheng says:


  21. Kelly says:

    To all the Stana Katic haters..back the hell up! Let me say this…..this poll is about the CHARACTERS NOT the ACTORS!!!

    • GK says:

      If it was about actors, even then Stana would take the cake. She is a wonderful human being who works so hard in many non-profit organizations. She is genuinely good and perfect in every way possible. Before anybody jumps on me, I don’t know what Juliet does or who she is, because I don’t know her and neither love, nor hate her.

  22. Mackenzie says:

    Beckett males me question my sexuality :p. But half of me hates that a police officers hair could look that good. All of the lady cops in my town have the pixie…..

  23. Mackenzie says:

    Beckett makes me question my sexuality :p. But half of me hates that a police officers hair could look that good. All of the lady cops in my town have the pixie…..

  24. Karen says:

    Beckett FTW!!!

  25. SD says:

    Yeah. Stana Katic spends her time volunteering at children’s hospital, promoting alternative travel project to reduce pollution and making independent films for no pay because she wants to be a part of a beautiful story. Clearly that makes her shallow. And high maintenance. You know, in opposite world. I really wish people wouldn’t talk about things about which they know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

    Having said all of that, this isn’t “which actress is a better person?” this is which CHARACTER is more CRUSHABLE. So um, debate that all you want to. I understand that. Both characters are pretty crushable. And have great hair.

  26. Maddie says:

    I would vote for Beckett any day.. she is absolutely stunning no matter what the occasion… Plus she is an amazing actor.. i personally think she is already straight through to the finals.. she deserves it..
    Luv Ya Kate

  27. Jest dla Beckett na mój głos-ALWAY!!!

  28. AlexH. says:

    Take a chill pill dude. Like many other have pointed out, this a poll based on the characters not the actresses. And if you don’t mind my question, what is the evidence you have that proves that Katic is b!tch? I’m not a fan of the actress but from other articles I’ve read she seems to be quite the opposite.

    • Marc says:

      Wait..I never said she’s a bitch! Are you serious? Seems like you should take that chill pill dude! LOL

      • Kris says:

        I don’t think that comment was meant for you. I saw that reply on the first day to a comment by Emma, (which was deleted by the user), stating that she was a btch in RL. And a bunch of other stuff that she “knows”.

    • Peacenotwarplease says:

      @AlexH – you said, and I quote, “I’m not a fan of the actress but from other articles I’ve read she seems to be quite the opposite”. LOL Alex – on reading your full post comment it seems like you are a fan of Stana – time to come out perhaps, haha! Anyway good comment from you!

  29. Kat says:

    This is a poll for most crushable, not a ‘slam on the celebrities involved’ opportunity. Stana is so far from shallow. She is down to earth, kind, generous & incredibly sweet to her fans. If you don’t like her that’s up to you; but that is no reason to be hurtful towards someone many of us know to be an extraordinary person.

    • Liza says:

      I totally agree. I can’t believe how quickly the thread turned into an attack on the celebrity’s personality. I think we all need to remember that even though we see their faces on our TVs weekly that doesn’t mean that we know them. Stana seems to be more open with her fans than most celebrities I’ve seen, but no matter how many chats we tune in for, or interviews we watch, I doubt we’ll ever know any of them as well as many of us seem to think. A few people used the word “shallow”, I wonder, has it occurred to any one that this whole thing is a shallow competition and all our judgements on the people involved are incredibly superficial.

  30. francis says:

    Stana Katic all the way to the victory of this compettion! She is insanely gorgeus!

  31. SD says:

    People in many fandoms love Nathan Fillion because he’s been a working actor for a couple of decades doing everything from soaps to sci-fi. Stana Katic was unknown before Castle so she has no other fanbase. And if being defensive makes Stana’s fans crazy then ok, guilty as charged. But we’re just voting for who we like, not going out of our way to vote for someone we’ve never heard of just to vote against someone we irrationally hate. We’re not the ones spewing hateful rumors. And for the record, I like Psych’s Juliet. I just like Castle’s Beckett more.

  32. Jolie says:

    Both are stunning. But it’s physically impossible for me to vote against KBecks. And this is a Castle fan that doesn’t need to bash the other competitor and fandom. Who would’ve thought. Good luck for both.

  33. loulou says:

    Stana all the way !!!!

  34. LolaBlackCastle says:

    The fighting is stupid & haters should get a life. Meanwhile, can we take a moment to acknowledge that “Juliet tries to topple Kate” is just a really hot mental image? No? I’m the only one who thinks so? Ok. Well I’d vote for Jules against most other people, but I gotta vote Kate.

  35. Martin says:

    There is something about the actress Stana Katic and her character Kate Beckett, that I can´t quite explain. All I know is that I have an unhealthy crush on her.
    Her character feels so real and I think we also have to thank Andrew Marlow, creator and exec producer of Castle, for the upcoming winner of this whole contest. Love you Kate Beckett!!! And don´t forget your wall won´t be there forever!

  36. MS says:

    To the author of this comment – “It is the rabid scary fans of Stana Katic that give her a bad reputation among other fandoms” – WOW just WOW, it must be hell living with all that hate! Anyways there are a lot of Stana/Castle fans who belong to other fandoms too, so your thinking here is a myth really! NF himself has said that Stana is a VERY SHY girl, and someone who is shy is usually opposite to bitchy, never wanting to draw attention to themselves. From accounts of everyone who has met Stana she is sweet, kind, and considerate to people. You can hardly blame Stana because all her fans love her. I don’t know Maggie/Jules character as I watch Castle not Psyche, but I am sure she is equally as nice as Stana. Whatever the result of the poll, hope they both prosper in their acting work and series they are on.

  37. mac74 says:

    MAGGIE LAWSON AKA JULIET O’HARA!!!! Stana is great but she doesn’t even come close to the awesomeness of the talent and beauty of Maggie Lawson. She is just so adorable and kick ass!


    And the only reasonn that Stana is ahead is because she is on a network show and therefore seen by a much wider audience. Psych is cable and a much smaller audience so this poll is totally unfair.

  38. Victoria Gates says:

    My people always succeed!

  39. Thib says:

    I like Beckett but the most gorgeous woman is Yvonne Strahovski

  40. Julie says:

    I’m ready to bet my coffee mug that Juliet can’t run in those heels Beckett had last week! Wooo!
    Just vote for who you want. Of course this is a popularity contest: how would you want this to be anyways? It’s not like Castle has more fans and viewers than Psych… oh wait…

  41. pavitra says:

    definetely stana !!

  42. Carla says:

    Going with Beckett here, because I’ve never watched Psych. Though Maggie is really pretty, I don’t know the character, therefore, I cannot have a crush on her. Kate Beckett it is! :)

  43. Lanie Parish says:

    My chica, Kate Beckett all the way baby!

  44. notsorry4beingashipper says:

    Is this even a poll anymore? Beckett is winning of course, like she wins everything else!!! Team Beckett/Castle/Caskett FTW.

  45. Kristy says:

    Love Kate Beckett!

  46. Lanie Parish says:

    Right on – keep voting for my girl Kate!

  47. Richard Castle says:

    Vote for Beckett – she smells like cherries.

  48. Jericho227 says:

    Maggie Lawson is gorgeous, but this is Kate Beckett, the female equalivent of Jack Bauer, IMO, Looking extremely gorgeous while kicking ass
