Emma And Regina Win Zimbio's 2018 TV Couples March Madness Challenge!
The #SwanQueen fandom proved to be an unstoppable force this year!
\'s Emma and Regina snagged the coveted crown in Zimbio\'s 2018 TV Couples March Madness Challenge. After making it to the Final 4 for four years, #SwanQueen broke into the Championship Round last year, and they finally took the top prize in 2018!
This dynamic, magical duo has received a lot of love and support on Twitter from
\'s goddess extraordinaire, Lana Parrilla. In fact, series co-creator and co-showrunner Adam Horowitz also retweeted in solidarity. These shout-outs are a direct result of the passion and dedication of the Swan Queen fandom. Emma and Regina may not be canon, but their shippers will love them till the end of time.
So what makes this powerful duo so darn incredible? For starters, Emma and Regina have unparalleled magical abilities, and they have the most complex and well-developed relationship on
. Despite starting off as enemies, Emma and Regina found common ground based on their unconditional love for their son, Henry. Over time, they went from despising each other to being cordial acquaintances until finally becoming BFFs and allies.
Once Upon a Time, Emma and Regina hold a special place in the hearts of #SwanQueen shippers. The looming absence of LGBTQ+ characters in fairy tales and on the small-screen gave birth to this uplifting fandom that believes in holding onto hope and the undying power of inclusion. Just like Emma and Regina’s bond became stronger with time, Swan Queen shippers united during Zimbio March Madness for years until victory was finally theirs. These shippers represent the positivity, friendship, and sheer fun that comes with being part of a fandom.
It’s been a long, hard-fought battle, but today we celebrate the Queen and her Savior in all their magical glory. Here’s to Emma and Regina, and the wonderful fandom that earned them this win. Viva la Swan Queen!
We also want to thank everyone else who participated in this year’s challenge. You represented your OTP with fervor and showed that you are stronger together. We look forward to bringing you another epic celebration next year!
