The ‘Girls’ Finale May Not Be Great, But Its Actresses Are

17 April 2017 10:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Three performances show what you can do with characters over half a decade.

Say what you will about Girls (and trust me, a Lot has been said by a Lot of dudes), but Lena Dunham and crew have crafted a final season as fresh and endearing as its first. And that’s not even as shady as it sounds. The first succeeded both because and in spite of its expectations and the sixth has followed suit, only now its stars are as good as they thought they were when the show started.

In a final season playing on our presumptions and familiarity, like all good shows with a consistent, if not loyal, fanbase, the actors and actresses starring in it have gotten really good at performing the inconsistent, weird, often hateable characters they’re written. The final episode especially allows its three recurring actresses (Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, and Becky Ann Baker) all their favorite and best »

Girls Stars Bid Emotional Farewell to HBO Series: ‘We Watched Together on a Couch, Much Like It All Began’

17 April 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The girls are saying goodbye to Girls.

On Sunday, the hit HBO series aired its final episode after six seasons. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the show originally premiered in 2012 and followed the lives of four young women living in New York City, played by Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet.

The cast took social media by storm to bid an emotional farewell to the show.

“And that’s a wrap on Girls,” Williams, 29, captioned a photo of herself cuddling up to Dunham, 30.

“We watched together in Brooklyn, with Manhattan in the background, on a couch, much like it all began, »

'Girls' Says Goodbye In Emotional Series Finale

16 April 2017 8:55 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After six glorious seasons of hooking up with friends, breaking up with friends, struggling with jobs, struggling with no jobs, mishaps, missteps and mistakes, Girls has come to an end.

The 20-something Hannah Horvath – played by the show’s creator Lena Dunham – and her New York City posse of Jessa (Jemima Kirke), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Marnie (Allison Williams) gave the millennial generation their very own Sex in the City, with all the ups and downs that a female-driven dramedy series should deliver. And on Sunday night, they ended with "Latching," five-month jump forward for last week’s pregnant Hannah.

Shoshanna and Jessa made their final appearances in last Sunday's penultimate episode, so it was just Marnie we were waiting on for a final bow with Hannah. And while the new mother is living in her new country home in upstate New York (we assume), she’s struggling to take care of her 2-month-old baby, Grover.

Variety TV Critics Discuss the Legacy and Impact of ‘Girls’ (Part 2)

16 April 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Girls” premiered in April 2012, it was almost all that the TV aficionado community could talk about, and it made a giant splash in pop culture, too. Nearly everyone had a strong take on the show Lena Dunham created. Below is Part 2 of Variety’s TV critics’ reflections on the show’s legacy and impact — and why they’re both happy and sad that the story of Hannah Horvath and her friends is wrapping up. (Part 1, from before the finale aired, is here, and a post-finale talk with executive producers Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham is here.)

Sonia Saraiya: Well, that was pretty perfect. I mean, it wasn’t, but in its insular, domestic sphere, harsh reality, “Latching” is where this whole season was trending, and such a fitting counterpoint to a similarly insular but much more self-aggrandizing premiere episode of “Girls.” I appreciate that instead of being about transformation, for »

Girls: Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner Break Down the Series Finale

16 April 2017 8:22 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the series finale of Girls.

Tonight, we had to say goodbye to HBO’s Girls (sniff!) and is anyone else already missing Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Shoshana (Zosia Mamet), and Jessa (Jemima Kirke)?

We caught up with creator Lena Dunham and Ep Jenni Konner — creative collaborators and spiritual sisters — to break down the series finale.

Entertainment Weekly: It must feel bittersweet to say goodbye after all this time.Lena Dunham: Jenni and I just had our seven-year anniversary! That’s a number I’m much more apt to keep track of because I’m way cheesier. »

Exclusive: Brian d’Arcy James Comes Full Circle as King George III in ‘Hamilton’

14 April 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“The crown is quite heavy. The cape is quite heavy. I do remember distinctly the first time I went out, not expecting how heavy those two things would be,” Brian d’Arcy James recalls to Et about wearing King George III’s lush costume in the Off-Broadway production of Hamilton. It’s an outfit he will soon don again when he returns to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit biopic musical about Alexander Hamilton on Friday, April 14. “I don’t want to say [it will] wreak havoc on you, but if you’re not prepared, it can give you an extra sense of anxiety that you didn’t have before." 

While the crown has weighed down some, it’s not an issue for Spotlight actor, who is reprising a role he originated, even though he's playing it for the first time on the Broadway stage. "It's a full-circle moment for me," James exclaims over the phone as he eagerly awaits starting »

Exclusive: An Oral History of 'Girls' Fan and Cast Favorite: ‘Welcome to Bushwick aka the Crackcident’

13 April 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dubbed a millennial’s answer to Sex and the City when it premiered, Girls proved itself to be much more than that. Created by Lena Dunham, the show started out as a spotlight on a group of 20-something women -- Hannah (Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) -- who were as lost as they were indignant about perceived notions of what it means to be an adult, with Hannah proclaiming herself to be a voice of a generation in the pilot episode.

Over the course of six seasons and 62 episodes, the HBO series expanded its world to include as many men -- Adam (Adam Driver), Ray (Alex Karpovsky), Elijah (Andrew Rannells) and Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) -- as there were women while addressing issues of adulthood, addiction, rape, sexism and idealism.

Emmys: Final ‘Girls’ Season Makes a Strong Case in Heated Comedy Categories

10 April 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Girls” has maintained a modest presence at the Emmys ever since the program’s big coming-out in 2012 and 2013, when it scooped up two nominations in a row for outstanding comedy series. Adam Driver has shown up consistently in the supporting actor category, while guest stars like Gaby Hoffman and Peter Scolari have been recognized as well. But the show has mostly struggled to reach those early heights again.

That could change with the sixth and final season, which has made for the richest portrait of Lena Dunham’s world yet.

You may well have bailed by now, whether the creator’s outsized activist footprint overshadowed the series, or her various characters’ descent into their own navels made it seem like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. But it’s time to catch up. Things were already on the upswing with season five, and now, with »

Girls Recap: The Best Worst

9 April 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Girls recap here. 

Our little Girls are growing up. Finally.

In the series’ penultimate episode, a major job offer causes Hannah to seriously consider leaving New York City and raising her baby elsewhere. The possibility pushes the mom-to-be to seek out the opinions of those who’ve shared her sphere (and at least a couple who’ve shared her apartment) over the past six seasons.

It doesn’t go well — mainly because Hannah, Marnie, Shosh and Jessa finally have realized what we’ve known all along: They’re not really friends. »

6 April 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As the “Girls” series finale quickly approaches, Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams are already imagining what their 50-year reunion show would be like, and they even have a title for it: “The Golden Girls.” The cast of the hit HBO series starred in a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” spoof of the iconic ’80s and ’90s TV show, and the result is simply hilarious.

HBO's Girls will end after six seasons on Apr. 16. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, fans of the series got a glimpse at what's in store for Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham), Jessa Johansson (Jemima Kirke), Shoshanna Shapiro (Zosia Mamet), Elijah Krantz (Andrew Rannells) and Marnie Michaels (Allison Williams) as septuagenarians.

Lena Dunham is taking her clothes off with Jimmy Kimmel — but all in the name of late-night TV.

Ahead of Wednesday evening’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the nightly talk show teased Dunham’s appearance with her Girls costars.

Lena Dunham Says Her Endometriosis Is Gone After Undergoing Surgery: 'I Will Be Healthy'

4 April 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lena Dunham has a clean bill of health.

The Girls star revealed in Tuesday's Lenny letter that she is endometriosis-free after years of suffering from the uterine disorder. Dunham had been trying non-surgical options to cure her of the uncomfortable condition, but due to the pain, she ended up opting for surgery.

“My surgery went off without a hitch,” she writes. “When I emerged, cotton-mouthed, [Dr. Randy Harris] told me something I hadn’t expected to hear, maybe ever: there was no endometriosis left. Between my surgeries and hormonal intervention, I was disease-free."

Dunham adds, "That doesn’t mean it can never return, but for now, once my sutures have been removed and my bruises have changed from blue to yellow to green to gone, I will be healthy.”

The Most Fun Moment in the History of Girls: Hannah and Elijah Dancing to Icona Pop’s “I Love It”

3 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

My favorite character on Girls is Elijah who is played by Andrew Rannells, who by the way I argue needs his own show.   And above just about everything else I think the most entertaining moments on the show are the interactions that he and Hannah have.  There’s just something so incredibly genuine about their chemistry.  Lena Dunham and Rennells are brilliant together and every time I watch these two I’m magically whisked back into my 20s and almost want to live in my dingy studio apartment again. But perhaps no scene in Girls with these two is better than the

Girls Recap: Isn't It Pretty to Think So?

For a moment there in this week’s Girls, it’s easy to think we’re in another one of those “Hannah’s ideal day” episodes. And that thought chills me so deeply, given what’s happening on screen, I have a fleeting desire to snatch Laird’s knit cap from his misguided head and plop it on my own.

Last Week’S Review: A Baby Daddy Surfaces While Another Character Grows Up

Love Her or Hate Her

Now that Hannah is past the point of no return in her pregnancy, things have started getting real. And so as she contemplated what kind of an effect Paul-Louis’s absence will have on her little boy or girl, she approached very understandable freak-out territory. Suddenly she appreciated all of the little things having a capable partner might bring to the table, like there being someone to fix the air conditioning and help her pick out baby necessities. Even just having a person there as an emotional support to bounce thoughts and feelings off of is a huge thing for a pregnant woman, and the best Hannah has at this point is Elijah — who was quick to bring up abortion as soon as Hannah started voicing her thoughts.

So when Adam »
