The nominations for the 2009 99 Most Desirable Women are in.

Each year the Delta Films executive committee chooses the most desirable women in
movies, television, modeling, and sports. Many attractive women campaign year round
for this prestigious honor. Personal appearances score big points with the Delta Films
judges. The Judges are incredibly honest and cannot be bought. However their votes
can be influenced with sexual favours.

"Desirable" doesn't necessarily mean the most beautiful or sexiest (although those
things certainly help). As in most beauty pageants, to us, desirability encompasses
many attributes such as beauty, sex appeal, talent, and personality. Although
hundreds of deserving women are nominated each year only 99 can make it through
our strenuous process and be named one of the "99 Most Desirable Women" of that
year. The judges carefully evaluate each nominee and rank them by their desirability
rating. The votes are tabulated and the results are sealed in our secure vault until the
awards are announced.

This years nominees are an eclectic group of women, old and young - famous,
infamous and not so famous - blonde's, brunettes, and lots of red heads. The oldest
is over 50 and the youngest just 15.

There are those that are new - having never been nominated before (Zoe Saldana,
Carey Mulligan, Talulah Riley & Moon Bloodgood) - perennial favorites who make the
list year after year (Charlize Theron, Mischa Barton, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett
Johansson, & Natalie Portman). There are Some that fell off the list and came back
(Kristen Stewart, Christina Applegate, Emmy Rossum) And many missing from this
years nominations that had been previous honorees but have dropped off our list and
never resurfaced (Paris Hilton, Meg Ryan, Michelle Pfeiffer, Julia Ormand, Hellen Hunt,
Rebecca Demornay are a few that come to mind)

There are cougars - Courtney Cox, Diane Lane, Elizabeth Hurley, Emma Thompson,
Julianne Moore, Virginia Madsen

The Forbidden pie - made from that elusive forbidden fruit - it looks tasty but you're
not aloud to eat it (yet) - Saoirse Ronan, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, & Taylor
Momsen.  Previous forbidden pies - Jamie Lynn Spears, Emma Watson, Emma Roberts,
JoJo Lavesque & Carly Schroeder - have all come of age in the past couple years and

forbidden pie to make the top ten on the Delta 99 at age 17.
