Woman watches all the TV in EW's 24-Hour Emmys Binge Guide, lives

It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.

Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW‘s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in the form of a grape Popsicle in lieu of wine).

It wasn’t easy: Lloyd had to shirk off her distaste of Girls by watching the divisive “Beach House” episode, yet she managed to handle Dunham’s irresolute Brooklyn hipsters. It’s a feat to be admired, so Lloyd’s endeavor will henceforth be referred to in this post as “The Binge.” READ FULL STORY

Hollywood is pretty excited about the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup win

The Los Angeles Kings are your 2014 Stanley Cup champions, and Hollywood is all atwitter.

The East Coast-West Coast finals matchup drew A-list interest as the Kings topped the New York Rangers in a thrilling Game 5, which took two overtimes to decide. Defenseman Alec Martinez scored the heroic Cup-winning goal, causing celebrities to blow up Twitter with their excitement (or, in the case of some New Yorkers, resignation):

Twitter takes creepy 'Paddington Bear' still and makes it creepier

Note — we couldn’t resist climbing onto the #creepypaddington bandwagon, so we’ve added some Paddingtons of our own.

You know Paddington as a sweet, cuddly, duffle-coat-clad bear who spends his time eating marmalade sandwiches and being adorable. But when a still from a new Paddington Bear film appeared online Tuesday, Twitter users saw a whole new side of the beast.

Enter #creepypaddington, the best image mash-up game since sad Kanye. Twitter users put the affable bear into horror scenes and spectacles, somehow managing to make him even more creepy. See our favorites below. (Warning: gore; bears.) READ FULL STORY

Nielsen reveals top 10 TV series on Twitter and the year's most tweeted-about episode

If television gave us anything to tweet about this year, it was Walter White’s journey from chemistry teacher to Heisenberg to whatever it was that he became.

Nielsen has released its list of this year’s most talked-about series on Twitter, which was calculated from September 1, 2013 to May 25, 2014. Breaking Bad not only topped the list — with an average reach of 6 million people per each new episode — but also took home the award for the greatest reach for a single airing, thanks to its buzzy series finale. Viewers’ final hour with Walt, Jesse, and all those crazy Nazis reached 9.1 million people on Twitter, making it quite literally the tune-in event of the year. However, The Voice set the record for total tweets sent about a single episode with 1.92 million tweets about its episode on May 13. READ FULL STORY
