After taking your suggestions under advisement — and extending the cutoff date to March 31, because so many of you wanted to (dis)honor the passing of The Walking Dead‘s Andrea — here are this year’s nominees. UPDATE: Polls are now closed. Winners will be announced Friday. READ FULL STORY »
Tag: The Mindy Project (1-10 of 16)
Wow! What a finale! Mindy Kaling has had a place in my heart ever since this moment and Mindy Lahiri ever since she gave up going to a party with a bunch of basketball players to stay with her friends (and footed the bill). Over the season, we’ve grown to understand Mindy and admire her love of all things rom com. Tonight, she got to do her very own big gesture. READ FULL STORY »

Our pop-culture guide to what’s in, what’s fading, and what’s definitely out.
The holidays are a welcome gift for overworked PopWatchers. Now is the time to catch up on all those movies the critics have already crowned Oscar contenders, or marathon a TV show on Blu-ray before the new season kicks in — Downton Abbey season 3 starts Jan. 6! — or simply track down a show you’ve been reading great things about. In the theater, Quentin Tarantino’s bloody Django Unchained, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a sadistic villain, promises to be a jolly good time when it premieres on Christmas Day. Let’s put him on the Naughty list.
Check out what else is stuffed in this week’s PopWatch stocking.

In his defiant press conference on Friday, National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre blamed the media for last week’s school massacre in Newtown, Conn., and suggested that American schools should have armed guards. Since he didn’t answer any questions, his sitdown with David Gregory on Sunday morning’s most hallowed political talkshow takes on even greater interest and will most certainly set the political agenda for the week ahead.

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Downton Abbey‘s imminent return to television in the States. Yes, Jan. 6 is still a few weeks away, but I can’t wait to see whether Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) actually walk down the aisle — they really need to, I couldn’t take another breakup — and what brand of American sass Shirley MacLaine brings with her across the pond. Plus, on a more sappy note, the series spawned a regular Sunday night Masterpiece viewing/wine-drinking party with a group of friends that is priceless to me.
I’ve also polled my EW colleagues to ask what they are most grateful for pop culture wise this turkey day. See what they said below!
Mindy Kaling was on Conan last night (She used to intern there!) talking about her harem of attractive hunks on The Mindy Project, all of whom she seems to be kissing quite a bit. As creator of the show, she casts the guys her character will wind up involved with, a privilege she told Conan O’Brien is the entire reason she’s doing a television show at all.
And really, with Seth Meyers, Ed Helms and Bill Hader — not to mention regulars Ed Weeks and Chris Messina — hanging around, who can blame her for taking full advantage of her authority?
According to Kaling, the perks include slipping some tongue action to their scripted kissing, something she learned was frowned upon in the TV business. “When I do it on the show now, it’s the worst kind of sexual harassment,” she jokingly said. “Because I’m the boss. They’re afraid to complain.”
Watch below, where Kaling also explains how hard it is to not tell her charming co-stars, “I love you”: READ FULL STORY »
