No need to put on that cry face now that Homeland is over — we’ve got reader submissions! This one comes from a .gif-ted (see what I did there?) anonymous submitter, from Shopgirl. Behold the awesomeness.

Tonight’s caption comes from the hubs…

"Come on Carrie, push!"

On a more series note, was that a season finale or what? “Homeland” owns TV.

A hilarious reader submission. Thanks, Nick! And for the record, I think it’s important to say that Claire Danes is a beautiful woman when she isn’t crying. 
Estes heard about the ugliness.

Thanks to Dot for this submission! She says:

Pointed to this through The Guardian (so you’ve made it to the UK!)
This absolute gem is from 1x11 of Homeland :)

It is an absolute gem, Dot, and totally makes up for the lack of cry face in this past Sunday’s episode. (But plenty of O-face, amiright? Bad, bad idea, Carrie.)

Claire Danes Gets All the Emmys, Forever

image

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:

Generation Cryface

An excerpt:

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.

"I just… I just wish we could spend all of our time on this storyline, and not the dumb one where the kids killed some random lady. WHY DOESN’T ANYONE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS THE ONLY STORYLINE THAT MATTERS?"

A Conversation

Me: Do you think Claire Danes hates me?

The Hubs: I can’t imagine anyone she hates MORE!
