Get Your Holiday Jollies With Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson's "Sad-Off Showdown"

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | December 18, 2012 | Comments ()


Last night in the television world the earth moved, the sky shook and our hearts sang. No, of course, I'm not talking about "How I Met Your Mother." I'm talking about a different sh*tshow entirely. Last night, after foisting Blake Lively on us for five years, "Gossip Girl" came to an end and while I'm not sure how many (if any) of you were still watching that show, some of you might be interested to know who the titular character (voiced in narration by Kristen Bell) ended up being... (Cinema Blend)

...yeah. It was this dude. Dan Humphrey. The Ted Mosby of the "Gossip Girl" universe. Bafflingly played, "Gossip Girl," bafflingly played.

Friend of the site Josh Kurp has put together the best albums of the year. I DON'T KNOW WHO ANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE, YOU GUYS. (Uproxx)

I'm not generally a fan of making technology look antiquated, but this mouse dressed up as an original Nintendo controller hit me with the nostalgia wave pretty hard. This is why I don't know anything about the music yous kids are listening to. (Neatorama)

Have you heard of frost flowers? I never had because I'm a coastal Californian. The presence of ice on my windshield this morning threw me into an absolute tizzy. We don't do frozen here. Anyway, frost flowers are a pretty gorgeous, naturally occurring phenomenon. Drool away. (Kuriositas)

It's a shame the Star Wars prequels are so sh*tty, because I am fully lusting after this Darth Maul propaganda poster. (Nerd Approved)

This compilation of all the abrevs, mispronunciations and portmanteaus from "Happy Endings" is suhcyute. Suhcyute. (Vulture)

The first time I took this "Which Wes Anderson Character Are You?" quiz, I got someone from Bottle Rocket. Then, like any red-blooded American would, I went back and cheated until I got Pagoda. (FlavorWire)

Speaking of a Wes Anderson fav, Bill Murray gives a pretty great interview for GQ. As if you would expect anything less. The man even makes duck lips look hip. (Celebitchy)

Which of these upcoming sitcom pilots would you most want to watch? I gotta say, "Untitled Gay Comedy," your crass demographics pitch appeals to me. (WG)

You know I'm not usually one for animal-related links, but the lovely and talented Kiala Kazebee sent me this fantastic animals as "Homeland" characters post. Owl Berenson, you speak to my soul. (BF)

Which cast member from The Hobbit can name check all the dwarves the fastest? Surprise victory from Kili aka "the hot dwarf."

Finally, Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson, stars of the gloomy Les Miserables and Django Unchained respectively (though how awesome would it be if they swapped?) have a "Sad-Off Showdown."

    "You say that like there's never been a French whore in the White House."

    Funny because it's true.

  • Andrew

    "Nothing says "Christmas" like slaves and whores .... Merry Christmas America ..."


    Sounds like Christmas at my place ..... just sayin ......

  • Mrs. Julien

    And those frost flowers are amazing. I've never seen anything like that. Thank you, Joanna.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Isn't Thorin the hot dwarf? I pretty sure it's Thorin. I know for sure it's Richard Armitage and he's Thorin, so Thorin is the hot dwarf. Lawyered.

  • e jerry powell

    Dangit, I'm still too black for Wes Anderson.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I'm Royal from the Tenenbaums. I'm proud and ashamed.

    Jesus that thing works...

  • Bert_McGurt

    Ok, I wanted to send this one in today but didn't get a chance, so I'm-a-gonna put it right here. If you don't happen to also peruse mental_floss, it's an interesting (and kind of freaky) read about pursuing cryptic riddles on 4chan.

  • Anne At Large

    That was a great link, thanks for posting it! Now I'm creeped out

  • Slash

    OK, I was far too delighted when Anne said, "That's right, it's a sad-off, motherfucker."

    First she shows us her vajayjay, then a week later, she's throwing the word "motherfucker" around like a Tarantino film.

    (sniff) she's gone and growed up on us ...

  • athena23

    All I know is that's the best laugh I've had in a few days. They are both superb for doing this.

  • jM

    Oh man, that animals as Homeland characters list. I could bearly* hold it together when I saw the Mike Faber dog. Then I saw the evil sloth and completely lost it .

    *very much intended

  • BachOClock

    I ended up getting Mordecai in the Wes Anderson flowchart, which is kinda sorta ALMOST as awesome as Pagoda. Almost.

  • Further proof that Anne Hathaway is one of the best people of all the people.

  • nosio

    Hmm. I'm Mordecai from Tenebaums.

    I gotta be honest, I didn't see that one coming.

  • Hmm...Peter, Darjeeling Limited

  • DeistBrawler

    I got Dignan from Bottle Rocket.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I freakin' love Dignan.

  • DeistBrawler love me!

    "The death of hope!"

    Merry Christmas!

    Forget The Deftones. She's never heard of Fiona Apple? But she famously told off the world when she won Best New Artist at the VMAs in 1996 and bought numbers close to the Butterball Turkey Hotline to promote vegetarianism around Thanksgiving. Oh, Joanna, you've been a bad, bad girl.

  • JoannaRobinson

    That was lazy hyperbole. Of course I have heard of Fiona. I was a white girl in high school in the 90s. The Deftones, however, I shall be checking out in 3...2...1...
