Always short a recommendation or two (or ten) whenever someone asks you for the right book/movie/TV show to fit a specific situation? Sounds like you might benefit from some Super Pop!, a new collection of Top Ten lists from Zest Books geared towards covering just about every scenario where someone would be seeking your pop culture advice.
The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA), whose membership includes two TWoP staffers, has announced the nominations for its 3rd Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards. The winners will be revealed at 11 PM EST on June 10, 2013, in a ceremony hosted by Parks and Recreation's Retta that will be streamed live on UStream. In the meantime, treat yo self to the complete list of nominees here. (Note: Nominated programs and performances aired between June 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.)
In our neverending quest to take our obsession with television to new levels, we're happy to report that we're going to be working closely with zeebox, a free app that lets TV viewers discover, connect, share and interact with their favorite shows and with other fans while they watch. It's available for laptops, iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones (yet another reason to upgrade that flip phone, The Killing's Detective Linden).
Television Without Pity readers have never been shy about expressing their thoughts about the best and worst of television, movies, and pop culture -- in fact, they've set the online standard for passionate, in-depth and highly focused viewer reactions and analysis. So now TWoP has a new way to let your opinions be heard -- both on the site and beyond. Here's how you can now get the most out of the TWoP social experience:
Here's one more reason to miss ABC's One Life to Live, which airs its last episode today after a nearly 44-year run: they pay attention to TWoP's reviews! On yesterday's penultimate installment, the OLTL writers gave a shout-out to a certain website known as "Movies Without Sympathy," which lambasted David Vickers Buchanan's (played by Tuc Watkins) latest acting effort, entitled The Boy with the Chipmunk Tattoo.
Yesterday there was a luncheon honoring the best in television, as chosen by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. And while the full event, featuring the speeches and the hosting talents of Cat Deeley, will begin airing on REELZ starting tomorrow night (June 22), we've got all the winners here right now. These first annual awards picked some of the predictable stuff (like Mad Men) but also recognized shows and actors that is usually off the Emmy radar, and two of your loyal TWoP editors got to be part of the nominating and voting process (though admittedly, a few of our favorites still didn't win).
We're thrilled to report that TWoP has been recognized by the 14th Annual Webby Awards, the leading international award for achievement on the Internet, for both our website and our mobile site. Out of nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries, we're proud to have been selected as an official honoree in the Blog - Cultural category. But we're even more excited to be in contention for both a Webby and a People's Voice Award as one of only five nominees in the Mobile Entertainment category. And that's where our readers come in....
If you're a fan of getting our latest snark on your mobile device of choice, please cast a vote for us at the official People's Voice site. Voting closes Thursday, April 29. Vote early, vote often.
In the spirit of the season, TWoP is pleased to offer its readers not one, not two, but three free screensavers to download, all featuring our devilish little mascot himself.
One screensaver covers your monitor in an infinite number of little black, white and yellow Tubeys. Think of it as our version of The Matrix, or of the snow that used to appear on dead TV channels.
