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!
