When I was a kid, at one time one of my favorite TV shows was definitely Blossom. “Don’t know about the future, that’s anybody’s guess / A’int no good-a-reason for gettin’ all depressed.” I still remember all the words to the theme song!
After the show ended, Mayim Bialik (who played Blossom) decided she didn’t want to act anymore and wanted to pursue her interests in neuroscience. More recently, she made a comeback in The Big Bang Theory and put her neuroscience to work. Such a fascinating woman!
In a new video for PBS’s “The Secret Life of Scientists,” Blossom talks about her double life in acting and neuroscience in a special segment called “Mayam Bialik: Blossoming Into Science.” The PBS show is an Emmy-nominated web video series and site from the makers of the acclaimed science series, PBS’s NOVA. Each episode profiles one of today’s leading scientists, and shows what happens when the lab coats come off. Watch the episode below!
I don’t normally share Nielsen Ratings unless it’s the premiere week or finale episodes, but this truly has me impressed. Congrats CBS.
After a three-week winter break hiatus, The Big Bang Theory came roaring back. Not only did viewers tune in, but they came in droves. Currently in its sixth season, the CBS comedy achieved its best ratings EVER. Given the viewership decline of veteran shows, this feat is truly remarkable. Its strong showing also benefited all the shows following it. Two and a Half Men hit season highs, while Person of Interest and Elementary both matched series bests. Find out how many “bangers” tuned in below.
Last night, the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The night was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who I think did a great job. He opened up the show with a skit that involved many of the night’s leading women beating the botox out of him (I’ve included the video of this below). There were some funny moments (Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus during her acceptance speech) and some touching moments too (when Aaron Paul accepted his award for Breaking Bad).
Some of the winners were predictable, while others came as a surprise. That being said, to some Homorazzi cast members, there wasn’t that much that was surprising to them. As you may or may not know, five of us decided to pool together our predictions for some of the key categories and we laid them out in our predictions article. Now, that the results are in, we can see who won.
It was very close between two cast members, but in the end one came out on top. One cast member got them all wrong. Find out how myself, Donovan, Adam, Tyrell, Matt, and Nic did below. I’ve highlighted the winners in each category in bold.
Since the 64th annual Emmys air on ABC tomorrow, we thought it was the perfect time to share our predictions on who’ll walk away with the coveted statues. Will reigning shows like Modern Family and Mad Men continue their winning streaks, or will new upstarts like Girls and Homeland crash the party? For the first time, none of the big four broadcast networks has a series among the nominees for drama series. In fact, only two nominees in the comedy category air on a major network. It’s all about cable these days. Without further ado, check out all our predictions below. Which Homorazzi.com writer do you think will get the most correct? Sound off in our comments section with your thoughts.
Donovan: Mad Men
Patrick: Game of Thrones
Adam: Breaking Bad
Tyrell: Downton Abbey
Matt: Game of Thrones
Nic: Game of Thrones
This gives a whole new meaning to “big bang” doesn’t it? “The Big Bang Theory” actor coming out isn’t exactly earth shattering news because a visually impaired and deaf person with any sort of gaydar could’ve detected that. Though Jim Parsons has neither denied or confirmed his sexuality, it’s widely known in Hollywood that he was gay. He’s been out and about with his partner at events for several years. Plus, he once thanked his boyfriend Todd Spiewak in a Golden Globes acceptance speech.
Parsons’ sexuality became official in a new interview for the New York Times. At the end of the editorial piece, the publication writes, “Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship.” The interview was to promote the June 14th Broadway opening of “Harvey“. Parsons will play Elwood P. Dowd in the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy. This isn’t the first time Jim has appeared on the Great White Way. Last year, he starred in the Broadway revival of “The Normal Heart“.
Every wonder what would happen if some of your favorite TV shows merged to become one? Well, thanks to the illustrations of the talented Nathan Yaffe as well as Mike Trapp who submitted them to College Humor we can get a better idea of what we could expect. Take the image above for example…
“Big Bang Theory + How I Met Your Mother = How I Banged Your Mother”
Here’s what that ridiculous show combination would be about: “A socially awkward, nerdy father describes the night of his child’s conception in graphic detail over the course of seven seasons.” LOL. Amazing. Check out some of the other hilarious crossovers below and then vote on which one you’d most like to see become a reality.
With school back in full swing for many, it’s time for some real good movies to come out for you to pop into the blu-ray player after a crazy day of classes. Or, if you’re looking for a quite night in, there is bound to be something for you. If fantasy/comic book adventure is your thing, then you’ve been highly anticipating the release of this week’s featured new release. I’m talking about Thor which stars the ever so sexy Chris Hemsworth in the the title role. Check out a synopsis of the movie below:
The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth. – IMDb
While I didn’t know much about Thor before going to see the film, it by far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend buying the limited edition 3D blu-ray if that is up your alley. Check out some more new releases coming out this week below.
Who’s ready for Comic-Con 2011? It sounds like this year’s convention is going to be something extraordinary. Hitting downtown San Diego from July 21st to 23rd, this gathering conjures up every comic book, movie and TV fan out there. While many years have proved to be the best, this one is sure to be ranked up there. This year, the films that will be previewed are only one of the examples why the convention sold out so quickly.
This year, Comic-Con goers will be treated to previews of Breaking Dawn Part 1, The Amazing Spider-Man, Immortals and Fright Night (just to name a few). There will also be panels featuring the cast of fan favorite shows The Vampire Diaries and Chuck.
In celebration of these amazing panels, TV Guide magazine has decide to create four limited edition covers that will be available at this year’s Comic-Con and Homorazzi has a look at all four for you. I have to say my two favorites are The Big Bang Theory and Chick. Which one do you like the best? Check them out below.
