Who’s the next Alison Brie? The next Jennifer Lawrence? The next Anna Kendrick? Folks, I’ve used my powers of prescience, and ticked off the qualification, and I have found the Internet’s next new crush. Join me, before the bandwagon fills up. (Uproxx)

Weird. I never noticed this before. (Dlisted)

There’s going to be a Point Break sequel. I’m sorry. I’m even more sorry that Gerard Butler will be starring in it. You hear that sound? That’s the sound of Patrick Swayze kicking open his coffin. He’s carrying a clipboard, and Gerard Butler’s name is NOT ON IT. (Slashfilm)

One of the Internet’s greatest citizens, Matt Patches, wrote this great piece on how Rain Man became the unexpectedly huge hit it became. (Grantland)

More karaoke stories involving Beyonce should end like horror movies. (VF)

On Malin Akerman’s YIKES dress at last night’s People’s Choice Award: “This is just awkward on her, so desperate, like a lady wrestler trying to break into mainstream acting.” Yep. (GFY)

These guys ask what we’re all wondering: Is it worth holding out hope for Agents of SHIELD? I have officially given up until I’m given a reason to tune back in. (Previously TV)

Here’s why you should love Lena Dunham, unless you don’t, which of course is also OK. (Unreality)

Don’t get the wrong idea, folks. Candace Cameron’s marriage is not submissive in the sexual sense; it’s submissive in the Biblical sense, which makes it totally OK! (Celebitchy)

We were promised these nine movies, and they still haven’t been made. WHERE’S MY ASTEROIDS MOVIE? (FSR)

There’s a looming Velveeta shortage, y’all. I don’t know how my Southern family members will cope with the reverse scurvy. (Slate)

Pssst. Veronica Mars is now on Amazon Prime. Go forth, Marshmallows. (Amazon)

You want to see something horrifying? Here’s a woman soon to have QQQ boobs, who has had so much plastic surgery, her breasts GLOW IN THE DARK. (WG)

Neat! The first and last words of every Doctor Who. (Nerd Approved)

During TylerDFC’s Christmas festivities, he cracked open a volume bound in the finest Corinthian leather and lost himself in a world where a simple wondrous-haired boy from Haggleworth, Iowa could become the greatest news anchorman the city of San Diego had ever seen. As all right thinking men should do, you must devour his review of Ron Burgundy’s Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings. (Cannonball Read 6)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Yocean

    SOLD on Santiago, aka, Melissa Fumero.

  • Nelani

    I will still be in love with Jennifer Lawrence. I am set in my ways and happy with it. :)

  • AvaLehra

    I don't know about the internet, you all can crush on whomever you want -- but my crush for the year will be Christopher Eccleston, especially after watching him on the red carpet for Thor: the Dark World and the Top Gear episode (from several years ago) with him.

    Good lord! Forget it, this crush will last longer than this year... I wuv him.

  • AvaLehra

    I really do.

  • grr arrgh

    I started watching Doctor Who when I was about 12/13 and he was my first Doctor but now that I think about it...I don't know how I feel about finding him attractive. Now when David Tennant came on and I was about 14..yeah, sure. I'd go to town on that skinny Scot, but having the hots for Eccleston is a bit...weird. I can't quite describe it. Though your beard pics are making the weird feelings leave and the sexy feelings come...good lord.

  • AvaLehra

    More for me!

  • lowercase_ryan

    And HELL YES Melissa Fumero!!

    I bet Craig hates her too.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I want a buddy, rom-com, chick coming of age flick starring Anna Kendrick and Lena Dunham.

    Because I want Craig's head to explode.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Directed by Wes Anderson, of course.

  • KyongEarnshaw

    I am asking that who will Replace the Jennifer Lawrence as a 2014 crush of the year?

  • Sean

    I quite like Margot Robbie.

  • RE: Candace Cameron. The irony, of course, is that if her relationship -was- sexually submissive, if she was running some sort of 24/7 BDSM scenario with her husband and that got out, the majority of people here and on similar sites would be in the front lines of the 'it's her life, who is she hurting, don't judge' camp.

  • emmalita

    Funny story, I know someone who is submissive to her husband, but WISHES they were in a 24/7 BDSM D/s relationship.

  • Sean

    Actually, I think the next Jennifer Lawrence like internet crush for 2014 will be Jennifer Lawrence. Probably for the next several years.

  • Hey, Veronica Mars is available for streaming at exactly the right time. If you watch one episode per day starting today then you would finish season 3 the day before the movie.

  • Cree83

    I want to see Anna Kendrick in more movies where she's an adult woman. She's maybe 2 years younger than me and I keep thinking she's like a decade younger than me because I keep seeing her as a high school student or college student or Scott Pilgrim's little sister, and then when I see her paired with Jake Johnson in Drinking Buddies, I'm all lamenting how Hollywood pairs these 30 and 40 somethings with women barely out of their teens. Uh, no, actually, that was a perfectly normal age gap in that case.

  • Cree83

    No worries of making that mistake with Santiago.

  • bastich

    So Fumero's the new Official Internet Crush? The polls are closed, no chance of a recount? Ok...that's great...yeah sure, why not....

  • Arran

    Dennings is a worthy contender who is automatically eliminated because she's in a terrible show.

  • RE: Fumero....ok, I'm in.

  • Awww, thanks for the shout out, Dustin!

  • mswas

    Thank me.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I for one don't want a Trolljageren remake.

  • JJ

    "Here’s a woman soon to have QQQ boobs, who has had so much plastic surgery, her breasts GLOW IN THE DARK."

    A wasted opportunity to create a new size named "LEDDDD."

  • I grew up in Green County, Wisconsin, the heart of Dairyland. A few years back I went down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast with my family for a wedding reception. As we mingled in the reception hall I made my way over to hors d'oeuvres table and popped a cube of what I assumed was Colby into my mouth. Upon discovering it was Velveeta I spit it out into a napkin and gave my mother a plaintive gaze. She admonished me not to be rude, saying, "You used to love that stuff when you were little."

  • BWeaves

    QQQ boobs? Wha? Veins, oh the humanity.

  • John W

    I'd like to know who decided to make Skye the focus of MAoS?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Meh. I'm not a fan of submissive wifehood, but I'm not the wife. Am I excited about her book? no. do I think it's dangerous? no.

    But maybe my uppitiness is why I'm no one's wife...hmm...

  • It certainly won't get you picking anyone's ducks, missy.

    (So keep doing it)

  • Mrs. Julien

    Why do all the threads say zero comments? Is Pajiba a zero sum game?

  • bastich

    I heard that it was subtle marketing for their new diet product, Pajiba Zero.

    ("Pajiba Zero! Twice the Snark, None of the Calories!")

  • Mrs. Julien

    Why would I want TWICE the snark?

    How about Pajiba Zero! Twice the Scathe, None of the Trolls!"

  • BarbadoSlim

    Jennifer looks fine and she totally doesnt need to lose 10 or 15 pounds.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • BarbadoSlim

    Apparently Im no longer welcome here. Reminds me of my mom's house.

  • $78742978

    I stopped watching SHIELD and continued to read reviews on the AV Club to see if there was a reason to tune in again, but it's so boring I can't even get through the plot synopsis any more.

  • Stephen Nein

    Y'know what's really sad? I feel this way and I fucking bought the season off of iTunes. My faith in my taste is so shaken I'm having problems just checking out books at the library.

  • TK

    Yeah, I bought the season off Amazon. We should start a fuckin' support group.

  • dizzylucy

    I turned it on the other day, and then completely walked away from it to do something else. Officially canceled my recording shortly after.

  • Repo

    I adore Melissa Fumero, so I'm totally on board with this. And I still hate Gina, so neener neener to all of you!

    RE:Who Will Replace Jennifer Lawrence as 2014's Internet Crush of the Year? We Have Opinions

    1. There is NO other Anna Kendrick.

    2. I nominate BRIE LARSON!

    2014 - THE YEAR OF BRIE!


    *Fumero would be an excellent fourth choice (Jenna Coleman is second *Lauren Mayberry in third).

    **Coleman would actually be my first choice but, considering the general opinion I sense here, the majority of the Pajiba folk seem none to impressed with the Impossible Girl.


    *** Or Lauren Mayberry from Chvrches.


  • chanohack

    I too feel like Brie should have caught on by now.
