Ben Affleck Named Entertainer Of The Year!? Joss Whedon Would Like To Have A Word.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | November 28, 2012 | Comments ()


Is that Ben Affleck in the Buffy The Vampire film up there? It shore is. 6 Degrees of Whedon, baby. It's all connected. Okay, onwards and upwards. In light of the official news that the "Boy Meets World" sequel show is rolling forward, here are some fun behind-the-scenes shots from 90s sitcoms. WILLOW KISSAGE! (FlavorWire)

The dude in charge of the disastrous Apple Maps app (the one that couldn't properly direct me to THE *%&$ING FERRY BUILDING in San Francisco) has been fired. According to this article, however, his goat is being scaped. Alas. (Uproxx Tech)

Speaking of largely useless technology, there's a new thinger that allows you to make playlists on YouTube based on a certain artist. So, pretty much, you're Pandora-ing without the commercials. I haven't tried the aforementioned thinger out yet, but fingers crossed it vets out all lonely teenagers with a webcam. Otherwise? Useless. (The High Definite)

I haven't watched all of "Gossip Girl," but I have watched enough to know that Leighton Meester is vastly superior to Blake Lively. (And, in my opinion, better looking.) Why Lively has the career she and Meester had to pretend to be attracted to Andy Samberg in That's My Boy is beyond me. Here's Leighton in some NSFW-ish (on account of some bums) photos. I hope her post-CW career doesn't fizzle. (T&L)

Unreality has a sort of cheater-y list of 6 Romantic Comedies That Miraculously Don't Suck. Most of the films are actually dramedies, but that's okay. More importantly, 'tis that time of year when we all declare our love or hate for the most divisive movie in Pajiba's history. Me? Why it's love, naturally. (Unreality)

Have you ever dated a cinephile? I have. Here are some tips to get you through that arduous experience. (WhatCulture)

Okay, fine, I kind of am a cinephile. Don't make out with me or talk to me during a movie I haven't seen before. I AM ASSIDUOUSLY ABSORBING ALL THE ART. Those faux-cinephiles over at "Entertainment Weekly," have named Ben Affleck "Entertainer Of The Year." Okay, what did Affleck do this year? He directed and starred in one very solid and enjoyable film. What did Whedon do? He injected life back into the flagging Marvel franchise and brought us the first truly fun comic book movie in years. (Sorry, Thor, sorry, Cap). I know, I know, I'm a Whedon fangirl, but Affleck, please. (Celebitchy)

Maybe, maybe if it were 2010 and he had given us this:

Speaking of objectifying the menfolk, Alyssa Rosenberg has an interesting piece on why and how Daniel Craig's Bond is being treated like a Bond Girl. (Think Progress)

Oh, Gary Oldman, I love your face. Even when it's making DeNiro's face. (ComicBookMovie)

I'm just going to let this magnificent Boing Boing headline speak for itself. "Girls' Crappy Fake Toy Laptop Is Pink, And Half As Powerful As Boys' Crappy Fake Toy Laptop." (Boing Boing)

Josh lists 5 albums coming out this week that don't suck. You had me at Alicia Keys. (Uproxx Music)

The great Jeff Victor produced something wonderful he's calling "Happy T.Hanksgiving." (Jeff Victor)

Finally, my little meth heads, did you miss Tom Hanks' cameo on Season One of "Breaking Bad"? HOW COULD YOU?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    Hey, Affleck was, no I can't do it. And Love Actually was dumb-ish. It blackened my heart.

  • Mitchell Hundred

    Well, OBVIOUSLY Tom Hanks covered up that cameo because he didn't want us finding out about:
    a) his subsequent involvement in the New Mexico drug trade or
    b) his death at the hands of Walter White and replacement with some kind of robot/clone/mirror universe evil twin.
    I mean for God's sake, people, I shouldn't even have to explain this.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I'd like my life to get to the point where it's like the Leighton Meister shoot -- all champagne bottles and naked male models equally strewn about.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Dammit I thought I'd be seeing Leighton's bums *shakes fist*

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'm just not going to bother clicking now that I know it won't be her bums.

  • chanohack

    I saw a little part of her bum. But unless you're okay with dude bum, don't bother.

  • Mr. Victor and I are about to have words over the exclusion of "That Thing You Do". Words, I say!

    Oh, and they left out the back of Seth Green's head and Nicholas Brendan's eyebrows in the caption for the "Willow Kissage" pic.

  • Robert

    Either I'm not really a cinephile or that cinephile survival guide is very misleading and dismissive of people who know a lot about films. One of those ten points applies to me if I ignore the terrible description related to actually reading film as a text and noticing when the water glass is jumping around like a possessed child in the 360 slow-mo cafe scene from Inception.

    I don't make people sit through ending credits; that's for solo trips and research in front of a screen. I'll ask questions to find out how someone else feels about a film but not go beyond "I didn't/like it" and favorite scenes/characters because I know I'll have a chance to share my thoughts in a review. I hate movie memorabilia beyond a tastefully framed film poster or art I make myself. I don't need films as a crutch to learn history and I can always go back and watch a film again later if the girl I'm with wants to have some fun in the dark.

  • Cree83

    I'm not going to say anything specific about the quality of Love Actually, but I do think that people who like that movie are in no position to ever judge anybody else on any movie that they like. That includes my husband, so he should really stop giving me the side eye when I pop in Bring it On.

    Apple maps? As in, the map app on my iPhone? I missed a Stravinsky concert last week because my app took me to the middle of Buttfuck, Nowhere, where I clipped in heels, alone in the dark, until I reached my destination: a random point in the middle of the UCD campus. By the time I reached the concert hall, I was 1/2 hour late and out of gas. I didn't even bother getting out of the car; they wouldn't have seated me anyways.

  • JoannaRobinson

    MONDAAAAVIIIIIIII *shakes fist*

  • Skyler Durden etc

    You know of the Mondavi Center? Damn, shit just got real.

  • JoannaRobinson

    UCD alum.

  • Skyler Durden etc

    Me too!

  • KatSings

    Love Actually is wonderful.
    Eternal Sunshine is NOT A ROMCOM. Or a comedy. It's beautiful and fantastic and heartbreaking - but it is not funny.
    That photo shoot with Leighton is weird. I hate that wig a lot.
    Another reason Whedon is superior? He brought something fresh to the horror genre this year (yes, he made the movie years ago, but the release date is what matters in these things, right?). He is Hollywood GOLD this year.

  • Socraz6

    Don't forget that Whedon also brought us one of the best horror movies in years in Cabin in the Woods. I'm fine with handing him the keys to all the things. *eyes new Star Wars movies suspiciously*

  • Blake

    Personally my choice for entertainer of the year is Louie CK. With his series, hosting SNL, and tour he has had a great year.

    I didn't care for the Avengers and didn't see Argo...

  • damnitjanet


  • chanohack

    And Alan Rickman for hurting Emma Thompson. :(

  • Halesonearth

    The why does my boss keep telling me to put my pants back on?

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Tom Hardy totally taut Gary Oldman to do the De Niro face, and for that he deserves a spanking. Just for that, and for no other reason.

  • John W

    Agree 100% Whedon should be EoY.

    No love for Volunteers, Jeff?

  • superasente

    Dude bums are safe for work.

  • badkittyuno

    not where i work...
