Claire Danes Gets All the Emmys, Forever
Awhile back, someone asked me if I’d posted any pics from Temple Grandin. It had been a long time since I’d seen it, and I couldn’t recall any cry face offhand. If there was any, I thought, it would be the scene where she gets into the cattle crush to calm herself down.
Behold! There is cry face! It wouldn’t be a Claire Danes movie otherwise, would it?
The New Yorker? AYFKM?
So, my little project got a mention in The New Yorker, which is just INSANE. The New Yorker! You can see it here:
If you’ve come across the “Claire Danes Cry Face” meme—it began as a Pinterest board and evolved into this viral montage—you’ve seen the meanish, gleeful thrust of the joke: that every scene or movie which Danes is a part of leads inevitably to the moment when her mouth contorts into a grimace, her lower lip trembles, and she lets out a violent sob (or, as last night’s spoof on S.N.L. put it, “her whole face looks like it’s chewing gum”).
I’ll be meanishly, gleefully thrusting some Temple Grandin up in here this afternoon, so feel free to stop back by later.
Anne Hathaway Gives Good Cry Face
Anne Hathaway killed it as Carrie Mathison in this Homeland spoof on SNL. Jazz freakout! And Bill Hader wasn’t too shabby as Saul, either.
Me: Do you think Claire Danes hates me?
The Hubs: I can’t imagine anyone she hates MORE!
Claire Danes Cry Face Supercut
I have two things to thank Slackstory for:
1) Propelling TCDCFP into instant Internet stardom (now eclipsed by the much-deserving Binders Full Of Women).
2) This video. This video is EVERYTHING.
Romeo + Juliet
Little known fact: The greatest thing on the Internet is, actually, Old Lady Movie Night over at Hello Giggles (What up, Zooey D.? I have bangs and I love New Girl. Can we be BFFs?), and Anne T. Donahue (who can totally be my BFF if Zooey D. says no), had this to say about Romeo + Juliet, plus a lot of other hilarious things that you should go read immediately, and this sums it up:
YOU ARE LITTLE KIDS WHO DON’T KNOW EACH OTHER WHY ARE YOU SO HYSTERICAL ABOUT BEING MARRIED. I wish these guys had the internet so they could talk to ANYONE about what to do. (Ex. “I love this girl, but our families are in rival gangs. Should I go super obsessive?” – “No. Probably not.”)
