Technically, Girls is a comedy. Based on last season though, if you tuned in looking for laughs, you would’ve been sadly disappointed. The comedic moments were few and far in between. Am I alone in thinking Lena Dunham took it too dark and depressing? Hopefully, Dunham and her writers were in a better mood this year. Otherwise, I’m permanently breaking up with the HBO show.
In the newly-released trailer, Hannah (Dunham) is shacking up with Adam (Adam Driver) once again. Given the fact Christopher Abbott left the show, poor Marnie (Allison Williams) is toughing it out alone. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is still being Jessa, while Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky) are still driving each other crazy. If that wasn’t enough, Shosanna takes a page from Miley’s book and twerks her little heart out on some poor dead person’s tombstone. Classic Shos ;)
This year, we get a temporary change of scenery. As with most NYC-based shows like Gossip Girl and Sex and the City, the requisite trip to the Hamptons takes place. Check out the trailer below.
Logo recently announced the nominees for their annual NewNowNext Awards. Now in its sixth year, this highly praised and always unpredictable telecast is one big party that grants the gay stamp of approval to pop culture icons and trendsetters as well as stars-on-the-rise and celebrates what’s hot in TV, music, film and fashion for 2013 and beyond.
If you haven’t watch the NewNowNext Awards, they’re a lot of fun. With irreverent and outrageous categories including “Hottest, Sexiest Ink,” “Host with the Most,” “That’s My Jam” and “TV You Betta Watch,” the ceremony is always fun to watch. My personal favorite is the “Cause You’re Hot” award. All of the nominees are definitely worthy of the win. I covered the red carpet and ceremony a couple of years ago and think its time to check them out again. Especially given the caliber of the nominees. I love star gazing.
Winners will be revealed Monday, April 15th at 10/9C, during the 90-minute Logo NewNowNext Awards 2013 telecast. The special will be taped in front of a live audience of today’s hottest emerging and seasoned artists at The Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA on April 13th. Performers, presenters and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks. Check out all the nominees below.
New Girl, The New Normal and The Mindy Project are all back from their respective winter breaks with brand new episodes tonight. Halleloo. I need a good laugh today. To commemorate its return, I thought I’d share a picture of Allison Williams‘ (Girls) guest appearance on tonight’s show and breaking casting news of a major movie star heading to the FOX sitcom next month.
On the February 19 episode titled, “The One That Got Away,” we find our favorite gynecologist heroine reuniting with a former flame named Sam. The two reminisce about their time at Jewish summer camp (LOL) and begin to rekindle their summer teen romance. Rumor has it, Sam was her first kiss. Can’t you already hear one of Katy Perry’s songs playing in the background. Find out who’s playing Sam below. Here’s a hint. He’s played a super hero in a major motion picture in the past couple of years. Find out who below.
We’re only a few days away from the second season of Girls and I’m beyond excited. In anticipation of the season premiere, I decided to re-watch the first one all over again during the holidays. Had I known HBO was going to release these wicked character videos recapping the first season for each girl, I could’ve saved a lot of time. Who am I kidding? I probably still would’ve watched it all over again. The Bushwick party episode still cracks me up every time.
In the new crop of videos, HBO takes a look back at the lives of each characters’ lives. Each clip begins with a brand new scene from the sophomore season. It then continues to quickly explain how they arrived to this point by showing scenes from last year. Check out what Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) are up to these days. Before the new installment of Girls on Sunday, January 13 be sure to check out the promo clips below.
Earlier this Fall, HBO released a very short teaser of the upcoming season of breakout hit Girls. At long last, we finally have our first full-fledged trailer promoting the show’s premiere on January 13, 2013.
Admittedly, I boarded the Girls‘ bandwagon a little late and took a couple of episodes before I fell in love with it. But now I’m a hardcore fan of the Lena Dunham sitcom. With lines like the following by Hannah talking about on-again, off-again boyfriend Adam, how can I not: “I know I always said he was murder-y in a sexy way. But what if he’s murder-y in like a murder way?” Another memorable quote from the trailer is from Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) who’s now done the deed: “I may be deflowered, but I am not devalued.”
Check out the trailer below which gives us our first look at Rita Wilson who pops up this season playing Marnie’s (Allison Williams) mom.
As mentioned before, fashion is highly subjective. One man’s Prada loafers are another man’s workout gear. Let me just preface this post, once again, by saying I’m no fashion expert, but I like to think I have decent taste. Like they say, just like a**holes, everyone’s got an opinion and here are mine.
Overall, I have to say I enjoyed most of the gowns that made their way down the red carpet at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Some ladies really stepped it up, while some stayed in their fashion wheelhouse. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. On my list are a few usual suspects with a couple of surprises. If you’ve read my fashion roundups before, you probably have a good idea who made it.
Check out my Top 10 choices for Best Dressed below. Be sure to leave your comments afterwards. Agree or disagree, I love hearing feedback.
If you thought the ladies from HBO freshman hit, Girls, would glam it up à la Sex In The City for Season 2, fear not. The Brooklyn quartet look to be the same natural raw-humored kooky hipsters they were for the first season. The network just unveiled the first teaser for the comedy’s highly-anticipated return in January 2013.
I’ll admit, I jumped on the Girls bandwagon after the season finished. Being a tad impatient, watching all the shows back-to-back was a great luxury. Unfortunately, now that I know the brilliance that is Lena Dunham’s creation, waiting for the sophomore season is painstaking. If you haven’t watched the show, be sure to check out Adam’s early review of it. He perfectly describes the essence of the comedy.
Though there aren’t too many spoilers in the short teaser released by HBO, there is one huge question that’s been answered. When the show announced that Patrick Wilson was cast as a new love interest for Hannah (Lena Dunham), fans of Adam Sackler thought he was leaving the show. Team Adam members can breathe a sigh of relief, since Adam Driver who plays the character is seen in the teaser. Check it out below.
