The Teen Choice Awards and "Pretty Little Liars" are total BFFs. Not only did star Lucy Hale emcee the proceedings (alongside "Glee" cutie Darren Criss), but the ABC Family drama took home an awesome seven surfboards, including one for Choice TV Show: Drama.
With the series just weeks away from its summer finale, we had to ask the stars what to expect in the upcoming episodes. And though they were a bit shy with the spoilers (you'd think A was lurking about or something!), Janel Parrish and Keegan Allen did spill a bit of knowledge about the show's annual October special.
"I don't know if we can really say too much ... I don't know how much we can really say about what's coming up. I know that the Halloween episode is shocking, thrilling, amazing, and it kinda leads into a little bit more than the fans would bargain for," Keegan teased.
Elena and Caroline are getting the full college experience when "The Vampire Diaries" returns on October 3—or at least the full TV college experience. The Mystic Falls BFFs will move in together when they matriculate at Whitmore College in season five, which, as we've learned through many years of TV-watching, means parties, hot boys and inordinately large dorm rooms.
"Look, we can all joke about it, but in order for a scene to look good, you need a lot of space to shoot in—especially when you're a show that shoots on long lenses," executive producer Julie Plec admitted to Hollywood Crush recently. "So yes, our dorm room is a little bigger than the dorm room I had in college."
But that doesn't mean it's not gonna be awesome. "We establish a university that's old and steeped in tradition and it's been around for a while, and the room reflects that. It's got the big arched ceilings and a good, old-world feel to it. So you will laugh, because yes, of course it's a little bit bigger than it should be, but we're proud of it."
Let it never be said that kids these days have no taste for excellence in entertainment: The teens have chosen, and chosen wisely! Last night marked the surfboard-distributing excitement of the Teen Choice Awards, with honors going to all the actors, musicians, shows and movies deemed worthy by a mass survey of teenage tastemakers. From "Pitch Perfect" to "Perks of Being a Wallflower," many of our favorites from 2012 got a nod at last night's awards—and from Rebel Wilson in a wetsuit to One Direction in an artfully styled lineup, the arrivals carpet was one major party.
Among those who went home with trophy surfboards last night: Logan Lerman, whose swoon-worthy turn in "Perks" was deemed the best dramatic performance by those in charge, and Rebel Wilson, whose appeal as Fat Amy in "Pitch Perfect" cannot be denied by anyone, of any age, ever. Also: Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, perennial favorites for "Vampire Diaries," took the Choice acting awards for TV Fantasy/Sci-Fi yet again; and Selena Gomez, who was nominated in half a dozen categories, went home with a pile of surfboards after winning Choice Female Hottie, Breakup Song and Summer Music Star.
Leah Pipes might be playing the token human on The CW's new "Vampire Diaries" spin-off, "The Originals," but she doesn't feel left out of all the supernatural goings-on. "I feel discriminated against," she joked to Hollywood Crush about her character's lack of powers. "No, I feel like it's a great thing because I just get to react in a normal way to what's happening around me. I think being an actor it might be harder to develop a vampire as a character, so I feel like I get it kind of easy. I'm also enjoying discovering everything with her."
Leah was introduced, along with the mysterious underground world of New Orleans, at the end of "TVD" season four. Her character, Camille, is a psychology student by day and bartender by night, and intriguing to both the head vampire in charge of N'awlins, Marcel, and everyone's favorite immortal vampire-werewolf hybrid, Klaus. Of course, Cami isn't yet aware of all the magic happening around her. "She is getting herself into some shenanigans, unbeknownst to her," Leah explained. "I think the friends she's making are a little suspect and there's a lot of drama happening around her. She's just managing to find her way right in the f-ing middle of it."
While Lea Michele has maintained a relatively low profile over the last few weeks following boyfriend Cory Monteith's death, the singer/actress is back working again. Lea stepped back on set on Tuesday, bringing the Gleeks along for her first day of shooting.
In an image posted to her Twitter account, Lea was photographed on set in a red skirt and black top with her hair pulled back into a ponytail. While it’s unclear what’s happening in the scene she was shooting (she does look deep in thought), she did share, “Feels so good to be home... #GleeSeason5.”
Tweets continue to come in from our favorite "Glee" stars indicating that, although they're deeply missing co-star Cory Monteith, the show must go on.
The latest is from the always-feisty Naya Rivera, who's beginning to tap into her inner (and outer, for that manner) Santana for the series' fifth season.
And she's not the only one getting new duds. Co-star Kevin McHale showed off his latest kicks via Instagram today. (We dig 'em too, Kevin!)
Brace yourselves, little superstars: Miley Cyrus is not only coming for you, she's here, and she isn't wearing pants. So goes our awesome new promo for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, in which Miley—complete with bra top, pixie pompadour and some seriously sexy high-rise leather briefs—descends upon the Brooklyn subway system like an avenging angel of pop-punk rockerdom.
This is just a sneak peek at the excitement to come when the VMAs make their outer-borough debut on August 25, with Miley on tap for a command performance at the year's best, biggest and boldest video music awards (and we're not just saying that 'cause they're ours, okay.) So clicky clicky, and get pumped for the inevitable firestorm of girl-powered panache that Ms. Cyrus will be bringing to this year's big night.
Where were you a decade ago? If you were anything like us, probably tuning in to the series premiere of "The O.C." That’s right, folks, it’s been exactly 10 years since the world was introduced to the Fox dramedy that quickly became the weekly small-screen obsession for a generation of TV lovers and pop-culture fanatics.
It also was the day that our crushes on Adam Brody and Ben McKenzie were formed. We still haven’t let those feelings go.
The show, created by Josh Schwartz (who later brought us exploits from the Upper East Side with "Gossip Girl"), premiered on August 5, 2003 and introduced us to the quirky characters that inhabited the fictionalized version of his Orange County, California. The show revolved around the Cohens (Sandy, Kirsten; their lovable, yet nerdy son Seth; their foster son, Chino, not to mention bad boy and pool house resident Ryan Atwood), their pals and frenemies, featuring the Coopers (including bad girl Marissa), as well as Seth’s dream girl, Summer, plus a whole slew of others (studly football players, MILFs, girl-next-door types, etc.).
Dearly departed "Glee" star Cory Monteith, who died last month at the age of 31, will be memorialized during the October 10 episode of Fox's song-and-dance series when it returns this fall. But in the meantime, the network has released an In Memoriam video—a brief montage recalling the actor's too brief stint on the show.
Additionally, Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich told Deadline last week that a tribute is in the works for the awards ceremony airing September 22. Ehrlich said everything is in the early stages, but that it would be "something that reflects an homage."
It's been a tough few weeks for the cast of "Glee," following the death of star Cory Monteith at the age of 31. But, with Lea Michele taking the lead, the show must go on. The actress tweeted today that she' back on set, getting fitted for her role as Rachel Berry.
Also today, Fox president Kevin Reilly announced that Cory will be honored in a tribute episode dealing with drug addiction.
