And so it ends…
Sunday marked the close of the 15th annual Port Townsend Film Festival. As Annie Hall slouched across the massive outdoor theater screen, citizens and visitors adjourned for another year, sated on film, food and abundant sunshine. Whether there will be a breakout film from this year’s line-up remains to be seen, but Amira & Sam (which won the Audience Choice Award for Best Narrative Feature), Laggies and Life Inside Out appear to be the likeliest candidates. Each is smartly written, confidently directed and wears its unapologetic heart on its tear-stained sleeve.
Several films distinguished themselves by taking home Festival honors, as well. The Best Feature Documentary Awards went to Return of the River (Audience Choice) and The Ballad of Shovels and Rope (Festival Choice). The Invisible Collection also claimed top honors as the Festival’s Best Narrative Feature. The Festival selection committee is to be commended »

It looks like Ian Somerhalder’s character death of Damon may bring out a new side of Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley’s characters. CW just released the smoking hot poster of The Vampire Diaries where Elena is holding hands with Stefan. This of course is a very different message from what we have heard or seen previously regarding this new season. It also shows Bonnie and Damon holding hands, which led us to wonder what CW is trying to imply with the poster since it seems like they want to keep everyone wondering. The new season kicks off on October 2.
We have to give it to CW. They are making sure to not let us guess what will go on. I suppose this season will be a very big and important season. We may see the whole series take off for a new direction if CW has us believing this poster. »

Television fans have spoken, and the most popular actor on the small screen is something of a surprise: Michael Weatherly ("NCIS"). He has an impressive Q score of 34 (Q scores have long been used by marketers for advertising effect). The second highest score of 33 is held by four-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). Next in line are: Mads Mikkelsen ("Hannibal"), Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory"), Jon Seda ("Chicago Pd"), Shemar Moore ("Criminal Minds"), Eric Stonestreet ("Modern Family"), Paul Wesley ("The Vampire Diaries"), and Jason Beghe ("Chicago Pd"). The Wrap -Break- Billy Crystal reflects on last month's Emmy Awards, saying that his tribute to the late Robin Williams "was the hardest thing I've ever had to do." He discussed it with "Today" host Matt Lauer and "became understandably overwhelmed with emotion" as he recalled »

This season of The Vampire Diaries will likely shock all of us. By their latest teasers and trailers, it appears Paul Wesley won’t be the weak brother no longer. He seemed to have found a new lady to spend time with. This time it is not Caroline or Elena, but with someone we have yet to even see on the show. This is a big shift in how they have shown Stefan in a very different light than usual. The new season of course will not kick off until next month, but you can check out the new trailer down below.
We are super happy for Stefan and Paul. I am sure he is glad to see his character finally move on to something more healthy. However, we are also hoping that it goes better for him with this one. He deserves a happy ending that will last for him. »

Did the short promo the CW previously released for The Vampire Diaries season six not satisfy you enough? Yeah, same here (we need our Delena/Stelena fix, stat!). That's why we're practically* (*actually) jumping for joy over the new trailer the network just debuted...it's over one minute long! And not only is there a lot of new footage, but what is shown is actually pretty revealing. We see Elena (Nina Dobrev) refusing to move on from Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and feeding on people again, Stefan's (Paul Wesley) got a new romance (?!?), Caroline's (Candice Accola) attempting to try to fix everything that's going wrong, Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) drinking heavily, and so much more. Without further »

Last season’s ending of television show The Vampire Diaries was a bit of a kicker with some key characters not surviving it seems. The show, which is based in part on a series of books by author L. J Smith, started off rather slow and dreary back in season one. Since then though the show has managed to find it’s groove and given it’s break-neck pace of storytelling it is hard to believe that it is only in it’s sixth year.
The Kevin Williamson (he of Dawson’s Creek, and Scream fame) show, which airs on CW in the Us and ITV2 in the UK will return to screens in October. To keep fans interested, and to answer the question of one character’s fate, a teaser for the new series has arrived online. Be warned though, only watch the below clip if you have seen »

Damon begs Elena to move on in The Vampire Diaries’ first teaser trailer for season 6.
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Teaser
In the season 5 finale, viewers got quite a shock when The Vampire Diaries appeared to kill off two of its main characters – Damon, played by Ian Somerhalder, and Bonnie, played by Kat Graham. Though both actors assured audiences they would return in season 6, they refused to say how or in what capacity. Based on the short teaser trailer, it appears that Damon will be appearing to Elena (Nina Dobrev) in drug-induced hallucinations.
While Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Jeremy (Steven R McQueen) appear to be drowning their sorrows in alcohol, Elena is having a much more violent reaction, and is seen in the clip feeding off a woman in the middle of a road.
“Damon’s gone. You need to say goodbye, too,” Stefan tells Elena in the clip, a sentiment later echoed by Damon himself. »

Watch that here.) As the promo reveals, that journey won't be easy. When Stefan (Paul Wesley) asks Elena to "say goodbye" to Damon, Elena
