HBO Renews Girls For Fourth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-4-renewed

If you can’t imagine life without seeing Lena Dunham’s titties on your television, you’re in luck. Even without airing an episode, HBO revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that they’ve greenlit Girls for a fourth season. I’m hoping their bullish decision is based on the quality of upcoming episodes. IMHO, it suffered a sophomore slump. Meanwhile, the network announced Boardwalk Empire would end after its fifth season this Fall.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised with the network’s decision to renew Girls. Despite mediocre ratings, the “comedy” garners plenty of press and watercooler buzz. To boot, it’s earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Just like Sex and the City, plenty of press show up for the Girls premiere party. Everyone wants to see what the girls are wearing. Much like their SATC counterparts, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke and Dunham, whether intentional or not, tend to dress like their on-screen personas. Williams is the stunning ingenue with Dunham usually in an unflattering ensemble. Check out what they wore for this year’s premiere below, along with the previous two years. Sound off on which girl has the best style in the comments section.

Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams all appear in separate covers for Elle’s Women in TV issue. While Poehler, Deschanel and Williams’ respective photos are in color and reveal their entire body, Kaling’s is noticeably a different color and only features the comedienne’s upper body.

Some critics are slamming Elle for being racist and “fat-ist.” This isn’t the first time Elle has been slammed for not embracing full-figured women. The publication wrapped Melissa McCarthy in an over-sized coat last year. Kaling made light of the controversy and used the opportunity to promote a new episode of The Mindy Project.

“Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover? Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs! 930/830 FOX.” Later on, Mindy tweeted “I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.”

Elle also broke their silence and wrote, “Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic. We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue.” Editor in chief Robbie Myers wrote in a press release, “The covers we shot with Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams are all distinctive.”

Sometimes I feel people have a tendency to overreact to situations like this, but you can’t deny something is a little fishy here. Kaling’s cover is so vastly different, I can totally imagine what editors said while picking the photo. I’ve seen Devil Wears Prada numerous times ;) Check out the other covers below which were all snapped by photographer Carter Smith.

Check Out Girls’ Season 3 Trailer

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-3-trailer

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.

Upcoming Guest Stars On The Mindy Project

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

HBO Debuts Girls’ Character Recap Promos

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

HBO Releases First Trailer For Girls Season 2

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.
