She Did What?! More Awards Show Meltdowns


Posted by on

We need to put last week behind us… Or at least behind our behind. Luckily the Internet is filled with pretty damn embarrassing moments from Award Shows Past. Now that we think of it, these cringe-worthy head-banging bust-ups must make losing seem like a good thing.

Bret Michaels Gets Bonked At The Tony Awards

Why exactly Poison frontman Bret Michaels was performing at the Tony Awards is anybody’s guess, but when a stagehand fell asleep at the controls and lowered a piece of the scenery before he could make his final bow, the result; a pretty bad head bump.

Kanye West Interrupts Taylor Swift

Sure, in hindsight this seems like just more Kanye douchebaggery, but this happened before the world knew he was a gay fish and thought he was just the good rapper from “Through The Wire.” If only Twitter had never been invented.

Liz Taylor Ruins The Golden Globes

Even a cinema legend can fall, as horrifically illustrated by Elizabeth Taylor’s turn at the 2001 Golden Globes. Wheeled out on stage to present the Best Picture awards while obviously impaired, Taylor didn’t even bother to read the nominees before ripping open the envelope in a fit of confusion.

Michael Jackson’s Fake Award

By 2002, the King of Pop was a drug-addled mess who could barely function in society. So when Britney Spears made an off-hand comment about Michael Jackson being the “artist of the millennium,” people should have expected MJ to take the stage and make a rambling speech thanking the world for an award he was not actually getting.

Rob Lowe’s Musical Number

The stage segments of awards shows are usually pretty painful, but the 1989 Oscars took that to a whole new level with an interminable segment where Rob Lowe danced and sang with a Snow White impersonator. The bit was so foul that some of Hollywood’s biggest stars penned an open letter to the Academy condemning it.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
