Homeland RPG

She’s in a race against the clock to save her country and her game.

Well done, CollegeHumor. Well done indeed.

But Danes isn’t too concerned. “Homeland” earned her a fourth Golden Globe on Sunday. And she takes those who criticize her “cry face” in stride.

“It’s just the way feelings register on my face,” she told Elle. “It’s been isolated from the rest of my work, like it’s a tacked-on thing. It’s not.”

For the record, I don’t think of it as “criticizing” her cry face so much as “celebrating” it.

I have a serious backlog of reader submissions, and I’m getting through them little by little and in no particular order. This one came in awhile back, from Emma, and I’ve been meaning to put it up. I love the description. Thanks, Emma!


This is the Where’s Waldo of Claire Danes crying faces because you know it’s there but you have to look hard to see it. It’s also on my Tumblr page here.


And Congrats to Ms. Danes for taking home the Golden Globe for her excellent (crying and otherwise) work on Homeland.

Another glorious reader submission from Evening. I still have not seen it, but I can recognize it by the cry faces (and ugly wallpaper). Thanks, thewingedpig!

Here’s another submission from our .gif-ted anonymous friend. This one is from Evening, which I have never seen but clearly need to. About this pre-cry chin-work, She says:


She really does cry in EVERY SINGLE MOVIE doesn’t she? I can already tell when she’s about to cry and when she’s just going to “work the chin” a lil’ bit.


Thanks for the submission, anonymous!

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.

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.
