PopWatch planner: The summer heats up with 'Lucy,' 'Manhattan,' and more

After a relatively chill couple of weeks, brace yourself for the return of some more action-pumped summer fare. Lucy, premiering this Friday, promises to inject theaters with some Scarlett Johansson-action prowess, while Manhattan, with a pilot airing on Sunday, will place a bomb right in the middle of family drama. It’s tense stuff, so maybe don’t jump into the action all at once. Take some time to cool down with Woody Allen, or maybe Richard Linklater.

Here’s this week’s pop culture schedule:

This Tim Gunn supercut doubles as a vocab lesson -- VIDEO

Tim Gunn, of the Tim Gunn Save, is simply the best. The Project Runway mentor and woolly balls enthusiast has delighted us season after season with his wit, relatability (fans are still clutching their pocket squares after last week’s ghastly trip down the NYC subway stairs), and genuine commitment to the contestants. And he’s taught aspiring fashionistas so many words. Consternation! Sturm und drang! WHITE?! Throw ‘em together along with his signature “Make it work!” and lilting “desiiiign-errrs” and it’s like a sweet, vaguely bitchy but ever-loving symphony.

Season 12 ends tonight, but here’s a Tim Gunn supercut you can put in your pocket and carry around forever. (Your phone is in your pocket. Egregious!) READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway': 'It almost looks like she has a foaming vagina'

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 8.00.38 PM

You could do a LOT worse on a “foaming vagina” Google search than to end up on this post. I just checked.

Nina “Mean-a” Garcia embellished her critique of deaf Project Runway contestant Justin LeBlanc’s “Glamping” gown with some campy Michael Kors-esque flair. “It almost looked like she had a… foaming vagina,” Nina said, choosing her words carefully after laying eyes upon this hot glue gun craft project disguised as a runway look. I’m just sad we didn’t get to see it in sign language for the full, explosive effect. (SPOILER ahead.)

'Project Runway': Sandro update, plus Ken vs. Sue vs. sewing. (And the winner is... your clavicle?)

Screen Shot 2013-08-15 at 10.42.22 PM

Sandro Masmanidi returned only for a brief apology for last week’s volatile getaway scene (does “Please forgive me?” count as an apology?) on tonight’s Project Runway, but did that mean the 90 minutes were relatively drama-free? Hell no! Designer Ken Laurence fiercely stepped up as H.B.I.C. with not only a complete unwillingness to collaborate on yet another “unconventional materials” challenge with members of his own team, but a request for no other designers to look at him, outrageous ageism, and enough passive-aggressive facial expressions (pictured) to bring an all-new 2014 Lexus IS Sedan to a screeching halt.

“I don’t design clothing for 40-year-old women,” said Ken. Does he have any idea who hosts this show??? Or as Tim Gunn wondered, aghast: “Have you SEEN Project Runway?” READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway': What happened to Sandro?

Screen Shot 2013-08-08 at 8.43.11 PM

SPOILER AHEAD. On tonight’s Project Runway — not Project Runway: The Student Show — hot-headed drama queen (redundant!) Sandro Masmanidi, 28, busted out of the Parsons luxury prison cell after raising his voice and speaking with his hands (pictured) toward some of the other designers. Upset about the lack of feedback on his bow tie-inspired gown, Sandro returned to the waiting area ready to pick a fight. And then he just ran away! READ FULL STORY

'The Voice' and sob stories: Struggling with reality competitions and grief

Last night, R&B singer Vedo took the stage during The Voice’s knockout rounds. He sang Bryan Adams “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” and impressed Usher enough to advance to next week’s live rounds. He also talked a lot about his mother, who recently died — something Usher acknowledged in his comments after the performance; and something that’s been mentioned on the show every single time Vedo appears. I wrote about how this makes me feel in last night’s recap: a combination of annoyed, deeply moved, and deeply apathetic. But many commenters disagreed. I still feel that way, and I’m assuming a lot of you still disagree with me.

So what are we really talking about when we talk about someone’s dead mom?

It’s official: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson will judge this season’s Project Runway finale, InStyle reports.

The news was announced at this morning’s Project Runway runway show. “Fashion is such a means of expressing yourself and letting your personality shine through your clothes,” she told InStyle.

The actress has multiple projects on her plate. She just finished filming a multi-episode guest appearance on Smash, launched her first QVC collection yesterday at Fashion Night Out, and will star in the upcoming indie drama The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. How does she find the time?
