It’s hard to believe it’s almost over, but the sixth (and final) season of Glee begins on Friday. Six years, more than a dozen New Directioners, and gallons of tears — and slushies — have led to this very moment. Read more…
Within seconds of the opening strains of “Seasons of Love” the Twitterverse exploded with messages of condolences and support as Glee fans all over the globe said #farewellfinn during the highly anticipated (and dreaded) Cory Monteith tribute episode. In short, I cried. A lot. And since I read on the internet that group therapy is beneficial, here are the five most moving moments from last night’s show. Get your
shirt sleeve forearm tissues ready.
We’re buying extra boxes of Kleenex for Glee’s “The Quarterback,” the episode dedicated to Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith, the late actor who made Finn one of the most endearing singing football players ever to grace the small screen. Just to get the tears started a little early, we reached into the VH1 archives and pulled out this interview we did with Monteith, Lea Michele and Amber Riley back in 2009. It was a silly round of “5 Questions,” but now even Cory’s joking answers mean something to us.
Glee returns tonight for its fifth season, tasked with handling the loss of original cast member Cory Monteith following his death in July. The show will dedicate its third episode to Monteith (slated for October 10), in an hour that plans to address Finn’s death as well as the perils of drug addiction.
Lacking the glamour of the Oscars, the drunken party vibe of the Golden Globes, and the sensational spectacle of the Grammys, the Emmys are generally the snooziest of the major awards shows. They’re so snoozy, in fact, that the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences—FWIW, the “Sciences” part of that title always makes us laugh—are planning to air FIVE different tributes to individuals who have died in the past year in an attempt to keep viewers from switching over to Breaking Bad. While we’re sure those moments will be moving, there is ONE segment of the broadcast that has the nation riveted. No, it’s not who’s going to win Best Drama or Best Comedy, but rather which late star will anchor the famed In Memoriam death montage?
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Grease are just two of the many iconic high school movies that have earned a more permanent place in our hearts than our own graduating class. But as much as we think we know their stories inside and out, we often forget their central lie: Their stars were way older than their roles. Prepare to be amazed (or at least to laugh knowingly!) as we take a look at some hit TV shows and movies — from The Graduate to High School Musical, Beverly Hills 90210 to Buffy — starring actors who aren’t exactly age appropriate for the parts they play. Check out the full gallery of the 30 over-aged actors who managed to fool us!
Maybe senility it setting in early, but there are some days when the celebrity news that seemed like a big deal at the time has faded into nonexistence in our memories (man, remember Will and Jayden Smith’s crazy interviews? Or George Clooney and Stacy Keibler’s breakup?). But when we look back upon the summer of 2013, there are some big stories that will be burned in our minds — some quite fondly, some with a slight SMH, and others with tears in our eyes. Here they are, in reverse order of lasting impact on our lives:
Why is Kim Kardashian beefing with Katie Couric? Andy Samberg stands up for women in comedy, and critics weigh in on Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
Who’s in the running to play Batman in Man Of Steel 2? Paris Hilton is once again a target for robbery, and Kerry Washington debuts her new bling.
