It’s already February next week? Jeez, alright then, here’s what you might have missed in these last legs of January…
-Popular comedian and actor Donald Glover appeared in his final episode of Community this week. It was a funny and touching episode, and his character Troy Barnes will be missed by all. Bon Troyage, Mr. Glover!
-I guess the big story this week is that Justin Bieber was arrested for drunk driving and drag racing and really guys? Who is surprised that this happened? Who is shocked by this? This is not news. Just watch this and look how awful it is that this is considered shocking and breaking news-worthy.
–Shia LaBeouf is a big fan of plagiarism. The tail-end of the whole “stealing material from Daniel Clowes for his own short film” saga has LaBeouf saying this was all a piece of “performance art,” a notion that he stole from publications like the A.V. Club. Even in his “manifesto” he released, he steals from other performance artists. LaBeouf is a mystery if there ever was one.
-Usually the Producers Guild Awards are a good indicator of who will win the Best Picture Oscar. However, for the first time in history, the PGA was a tie! The winners were Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, so the race is heating up between those two, with American Hustle as the dark horse after winning the SAG Award for Best Ensemble.
-For people who watch Grey’s Anatomy, the actors who are on that show will still be on that show for a while! In other news, Grey’s Anatomy is still on television!
-After Seth Meyers leaves to take over Late Night, SNL head-writer Colin Jost will become the new anchor on Weekend Update! I’m sure he’ll do a great job because he has to!
-Adam Scott has been making “The Greatest Event in Television History” for the past few years. The fourth and final installment aired Thursday, and it’s the best of the bunch.
-And finally, this exists. And it’s wonderful. That’s all I got.
