'Project Runway': Best stinkface of the night?

Project Runway consistently serves up some of the most vile/awesome stinkfaces on television. Last night’s episode, which had the contestants designing for evil overlord Nina Garcia, was no exception. Vote below for the week’s best.

Some context: Contestant Olivier (bottom right) has just learned that Bert, who is sitting directly next to him, didn’t realize he was in the room. It happens! READ FULL STORY

'Dirty Dancing' remake: EW.com reader outrage heroically captured in 15 Baby faces

Within minutes of our announcement that Kenny Ortega has signed on to directDirty Dancing reboot, many of you had already echoed my own reaction to the news. (EWWWWW.com.) It struck me violently in the face that perhaps the horror of this situation can best be expressed by the original Baby, Jennifer Grey herself.

“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” –Sarah  READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway': Let's Hear It for the Side-Eye

Anthony and Bryce made no attempt to mask their disdain for immunity-happy Bert on the runway after last night’s turn-a-pet-store-into-fashion challenge. Dude didn’t even try!

Would Bert’s look have been better if he had tried? Hard to say.

Samantha Ronson smirks after DUI arrest

Did you expect anything less of Samantha Ronson? The perpetually sour-mugged DJ stayed true to form during the intake process for her DUI arrest Monday in California. It’s the kind of smirk that could only come from someone allegedly caught driving drunk (at 89 m.p.h.) at 10:30 in the morning: “Frankly my dear, I’m too sauced to give a damn.” Or perhaps she was hoping, given the limited range of expression in a mugshot, that this could be a suitable approximation of throwing her arms out wide and yelling “What?!” The daughter of That Guy From Foreigner will certainly need some street cred in the county jail and on the ankle monitor circuit where her ex has become the queen. What do you think, Popwatchers?

Don't go outside! Sit here and name the saddest part of this frame from NBC's 'It's Worth What?'

I finally set up DirecTV in my new apartment last night, and within just a few seconds of flipping through network television’s 9 p.m. Tuesday lineup was able to achieve a stunning sense of overwhelming dread, horror, and hopelessness. Hooray!

Here’s the Saddest Thing I saw on Summer TV Last Night:

Three sad women posed onstage as Madonna, Paris Hilton, and Scarlett Johansson (though my first guesses were a deranged doll, a chronic nose-picker, and a Debbie Downer who’s unsatisfied with her recent shopping spree at The Limited). The show: It’s Worth What? on NBC.  It doesn’t really matter why this tragic arrangement of humanity occurred; suffice it to say that the whole point of It’s Worth What? on NBC seems to be that host Cedric the Entertainer gets to say “It’s worth WHAAAAAAAAAAAT?” before commercials.

It’s scary in there, you guys.

If you see other Things That Make You Die Inside on summer TV and want to make others share your pain, leave ‘em in the comments or send ‘em to me @EWAnnieBarrett on Twitter. It’ll be like the opposite of my hidden gems initiative, just for summer. Pellets of misery? Oh, I love it! Include an exact timestamp so I don’t have to watch the whole show. Do my job for me!

So what’s the saddest part of this frame? I say “DOG FOOD CAN” placard. You?

Behind the scenes in the EW studio: Who should Annie photo-bomb next?

You guys! There are so many hidden gems here at Comic-Con. We just uncovered a monstrously tall blonde one behind Chris Evans and Seth Green right here on Green’s Twitter feed. Dreams really can come true.

Who should I photo-bomb next…in the bedroom? Geeks? Probably just geeks. It’s all downhill from here, Barrett!

Al Pacino as Phil Spector: Bring on the crazy hair!

Keeping in line with actors-playing-real-life-creeps-in-an-attempt-to-creep-us-out, Al Pacino will be starring as infamous music icon Phil Spector for an upcoming HBO biopic about the convicted murderer. On Monday, Pacino, who disappeared into his role as the late Jack Kevorkian in the Golden Globe-winning You Don’t Know Jack, was spotted out filming the yet-to-be-titled movie, completely decked out in Spector-eqsue garb. While Pacino certainly has the crazy eyes down (no aviator sunglasses can hide the crazy eyes), we’re still anxiously awaiting when they get to Spector’s full-blown crazy hair/crazy person phase. Bonus incentive for the makeup crew: Pacino may not even require a wig!

Still, this is all somehow less disturbing than Pacino playing himself and falling for Adam Sandler in drag in the trailer for the comedy Jack and Jill. Go figure.

What do you think of Al Pacino as Phil Spector, PopWatchers? Are you sufficiently creeped out? Or will you need to see the crazy hair to decide?

'Transformers 3': In which Michael Bay turns Optimus Prime into a sociopathic idiot douchebag

transformers

Even by the surprisingly flimsy standards of ’80s action cartoons, Transformers was not a good show. The toys were fun — this was back in more innocent days, when talking cars didn’t have tongues — but the cartoon was a parade of random robots with colorful names and zero personality. The one exception — really, the only reason why Transformers has become so iconic — was Optimus Prime. Designed like a cross between a medieval knight and a robo-Captain America, Prime had a surprising amount of character depth, especially considering that he was a tall robot machine that transforms into a truck. For one thing, he seemed to be the only Transformer who actually cared that they were, you know, the last of their race. There was a weird streak of melancholy in Prime — imagine Jack on Lost, except without the ability to cry all the time. He had compassion. He was not, in short, a homicidal war junkie who seems to get a delicious thrill from forcefully tearing his enemies in half. READ FULL STORY

Would you like to see Jeff Bridges play 'The Giver'?

Lois Lowry’s The Giver is one of those generation-defining books that practically everyone of a certain age read in grade school and now remembers with a fondness bordering on religion. The fable-like story of an emotionless society where citizens are incapable of seeing colors, The Giver won a Newbery Medal and has sold millions of copies worldwide. Oscar winner Jeff Bridges has been trying to adapt The Giver to the big screen without success for years now, but according to a new report in Variety, Bridges and producer Nikki Silver have reacquired the rights to the book, with an eye towards having Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) write a screenplay… with Bridges starring in the title role, an aging priest-like man who teaches the novel’s young protagonist about everything missing from their soulless society. (You know: Violence, love, sadness, joy, and everything else that defines humanity.) READ FULL STORY

DVR Screengrab of the Week: 'Friday Night Lights' Gracie Bell isn't having it, you guys

As any Friday Night Lights fanatic can tell you, Buddy Garrity — despite all his best intentions and unwavering devotion to East Dillon football — can be one seriously annoying fellow. But without uttering a single word, Coach and Tami’s youngest daughter Gracie Bell perfectly got across what it’s like to listen to Buddy yammer on. When the Lions not-so-subtly threw a pep rally to get Coach to stay put (the episode was called, fittingly, “Don’t Go”) and Buddy came over to chat up the Taylor clan again, Miss Gracie Bell (wee actress Madilyn Landry… hey, Landry!) gave a look to kill and earned the honor of our DVR Screengrab of the Day. In the pantheon of annoyed tots, Gracie Bell just schooled Royal Wedding flower girl Grace Van Cutsem on how it’s done, Texas-style.
