Oscars selfie

If you thought Ellen DeGeneres‘ star-studded, Twitter-breaking Oscars selfie couldn’t possibly get any more charming, think again. (Or, if you thought it couldn’t be any more deeply crafted as an ad, think again.) Simpsons creator Matt Groening and the Legoland Manchester have each offered their own takes on the meme-ready moment, and the results are exactly as amazing as you’d expect. Then there’s a more biting revision of it that would make John Carpenter happy.

Check ‘em out after the jump.

‘Futurama’ Cancelled (Again)

Futurama

Bad news, everyone: Comedy Central has declined to renew Futurama, making the current seventh season its last. It’s a disappointment fans should be familiar with. Futurama ended its originally run on Fox in 2004, but was brought back to life by Comedy Central in 2008. Its makers don’t sound so shocked either. “I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” executive producer David X. Cohen said. Hit the jump to keep reading.

The mystery soon developed into a running joke on the show as characters would divulge completely contrary geographic information about the town, all but cementing the fact that the Springfield of The Simpsons wasn’t a real place. It was every place.

A new quote from Simpsons creator Matt Groening doesn’t exactly change that but he does reveal, for what is likely the first time, which specific Springfield the one in the show is based on. And if you think we’re going to offer up that info before the jump, you’re out of your animated mind. Read More »

simpsonsmovietheater.jpgThere was a bit of a surprise today at the Simpsons Comic-Con panel. Unbeknown to Groening and the other members of the panel, a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records appeared on stage for a big reveal: He announced that The Simpsons is now the longest running sitcom in the world, displacing The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet which had 435 episodes.

It was also announced that they now have the Guinness for the most Emmy’s for a single show, and the show was selected by Guinness readers as one of the top 100 records of the decade. They were a bit unclear on what that last award meant, but I figure it’s something along the lines of a lifetime achievement award for breaking so many records.
