Wow! It is amazing how many Gawker readers went to middle and high school and have the yearbook photos to prove it. Thank you for sharing your celebrity yearbook photos with us, except for those of you who just posted the Wikipedia lists of famous people who went to your high school. That was really lame.
Last night was head writer Seth Meyers' last episode of Saturday Night Live before he takes Jimmy Fallon's spot on Late Night (and before Jay Leno has both of them killed). During "Weekend Update," Amy Poehler and classic Meyers-era "Update" character Stefon swung by along with Andy Samberg see Meyers off.
Last night, Hollywood had its first dress rehearsal of the awards season: the Golden Globes. As with most rehearsals, a lot of shit went wrong: audio cut out, teleprompters malfunctioned, and several women grabbed the microphone to scream crazy things into it; in another era they might have been burned as witches.
The best thing about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is they'll nominate anyone just to get all the cool celebrities to come to their super-fun party, the Golden Globes. Plus, since it's not like a regular awards show, it's a cool awards show, they let you drink, as long as you do it in the house.
When Adam Carolla sat down for an interview with the New York Post to promote his new book, it was probably supposed to be a no-brainer—at least in the easygoing, non-clusterfucky way. Carolla used to host a Comedy Central show about taps, tits and trampolines, and the Post pretty much targets the same demographic, with bonus exploding-Hajji content thrown in.
Last night's Saturday Night Live had some pretty funny moments with the standout being this sketch where the Obamas got the Cosby Show treatment. Complete with a hilarious Cosby-like credit sequence and some typical sitcom shenanigans.
