After the coldest winter, Scandal returns tonight–hopefully with much more of Scott Foley in a towel. With a new season of House of Cards now available on Netflix and Homeland and Veep continually in the TV conversation, D.C.-centric shows are taking over our DVR. And we’re not exactly mad about that.
Hey gang! Did we have a good weekend? Did you hit up any good Halloween parties with people wearing unfortunate costumes? Were you just too busy to catch Best Week Ever? Never fear! You can finally catch up on all the crazy pop culture news you might have missed while you were busy perfecting your Claire Danes “cry-face.” We’ve got all-new full-length episode of Best Week Ever here for your viewing enjoyment.
Don’t forget to tune into an all new Best Week Ever this Friday, November 1 at 10/9 C! SET YOUR DVR!
Developing teenage characters can be a tricky thing for television, as many are often confined to eye-rolls and heavy sighs used to signify an elder’s cluelessness. On Homeland, Dana Brody (Morgan Saylor) struggles with her father (Damian Lewis) returning home from an eight-year captivity, the crazy allegations that he might be a terrorist plotting to destroy the United States, and getting her mother to loosen up about her missing curfew and having friends over to smoke a little pot every once in a while, all of which make it more difficult to figure out what’s REALLY going on right in front of her. But she’s so close!
Remember when they aired the Emmys after 9/11? That was possibly a more cheerful telecast than this year’s, when special tributes to late producers and actors punctuated the evening in addition to the traditional death montage. But it wasn’t just one big In Memoriam, fortunately. Here were our favorite moments from the evening.
What good is going to glitzy red carpet events if you don’t have a date to share it with? Most actors and actresses bring their spouses or significant others on their arm to help celebrate TVs biggest night, but that wasn’t mandatory! Some stars went with slightly less predictable choices for their dates.
Yeah, we’re all tuning into the Emmys to see which of our favorite television shows win awards, but what really obviously matters is how everyone’s hair looked. All of televisions biggest stars showed up at the 2013 with amazing coifs, but Claire Danes wowed us all with her fabulous faux bob.
The Emmys have never been the most daring of red carpet events — something about the fact that it nominates the same actors repeatedly, rather than ushering a new batch each year seems to be echoed in the fashion mood. So, no, we weren’t too surprised by the lack of fashion-forward choices at the 2013 show. Instead, we’re taking this moment to recognize ladies like Tina Fey, Anna Gunn, Christina Hendricks, Taylor Schilling and Sofia Vergara, who chose perfectly flattering gowns for the night.
On the one hand, the women nominated for outstanding actress in a drama for the 2013 Emmy Awards play a diverse range of characters: a DC fixer, a country singer, a CIA operative, a motel owner, an advertising copywriter, a nonprofit exec and an English gentlewoman. But they are a lot alike too. These are all strong, smart women we think we’d like to have on our side in a fight. The question is, if we had to choose just one to have our back, who would it be?
Getting fit takes hard work, determination, and apparently… a really flustered facial expression. John Mayer, Claire Danes and Julianne Moore are just three of the 25 stars we caught looking baffled while burning cals. Did they forget to pick up their laundry? Are they anxious about dinner plans with the in-laws? Come along for a jog, as we try to connect the dots and determine what makes these athletic celebs look so weird and confused. Check out the full gallery of all 25 stars below!
This Life & Style headline about Rihanna being the real reason behind Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s breakup made us chuckle … at first. We really have a hard time believing that RiRi and Justin were seeing each other as far back as 2010 — when the Biebs looked practically prepubescent (no offense) — as L&S claims. (It’s much more believable now, though; have you seen these abs?)
