1989: Gl's Will fatally injured Rose.
1994: Gh's Bobbie and Tony said goodbye to B.J.
2012: Days' Lucas and Sami reacted to Will coming out."All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut."

The portrait is Carey’s latest scathing critique of a prominent Republican figure. The actor made headlines throughout March for a series of controversial paintings, first courting outrage for his unflattering portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and then depicting Donald Trump as the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz.” Carrey released his official Trump Presidential portrait on March 30.
While Carrey has garnered more attention for his paintings than for his acting as of late, he will return to

Fabled tells the story of American grit that has defined the country from generation to generation through featured and capable "princesses."
Each narrative will explore the way in which female dynamics have changed over time and asks new questions of known and beloved characters to better understand the female experience.
The episode being shown at the Tribeca Film Festival will be titled "Anodyne," directed by Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time), written by Mamet and Evan Jonigkeit and starring Mamet,
The first episode, "Anodyne" - which is fittingly directed by Once Upon a Time's Jennifer Morrison - imagines what would happen if Alice (Girls's Zosia Mamet) from Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) from The Wizard of Oz crossed paths. Bloodlines's Norbert Leo Butz and The Vampire Diaries's Paul Wesley also star. The series will have its world premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival, but in the meantime, you can watch the first trailer above.
In addition to Mamet and Jonigkeit, “Fabled” stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“The Cloverfield Paradox”), Trace Lysette (“Transparent”), and Broadway headliner Norbert Leo Butz. Butz plays a therapist at the palatial looking facility. “We don’t want you to feel like a prisoner here, we want you to feel better,” he says.
The Ace Ventura actor, 56, who picked up painting about six years ago, has been demonstrating his political beliefs through his artwork. Carrey rarely explicitly names the subjects of his portraits but many appear to be prominent political figures. Over the past couple years, Carrey has taken to social media to share some of his pieces, which have generated praise, condemnation and everything in between.
On Monday, he posted a new
The 1930s were the making of Hollywood. When the decade began, films were monochrome, still sometimes silent (the majority had sound only from 1929), and largely uncensored. By the end, some were in glorious Technicolor, most had sound, and all were obliged to conform to a strict code of wholesomeness: a transformation embodied on screen in The Wizard of Oz.
Jim Carrey has become quite the accomplished artist over the years and devotes much of his free time these days to painting in his studio. However, his painting has taken on an aggressive stance against Donald and his administration over the last several weeks, but nothing can prepare you for his latest portrait of the president. The portrait features Donald Trump in an open robe,
“Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, I know it’s early but I’d like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump,” Carrey wrote in the caption accompanying the portrait. “It’s called, ‘You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?'”
The Trump portrait is just the latest politically-charged painting Carrey has released this month. The comedian received backlash from Republicans in the middle of March when he unveiled his unflattering portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Carrey has also painted Trump as the Wicked Witch of

The 1940s sundered the 20th century, dispatching an entire global framework and any number of abiding social orders to the ashcan of history. It offered both pinnacle and nadir of human achievement, along with 60 million dead, Auschwitz, Hiroshima and the iron curtain. Inevitably, they changed cinema for ever, too. By 1939, the major Hollywood studios had perfected studio artifice in films such as Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz, and bestrode the cinematic world like a colossus; by 1950, they would face the triple threat of the upstart new medium of television; the arrival of the “red”-phobic House Un-American Activities Committee in Hollywood; and the 1948 supreme court decision ordering the break-up of the studios’ monopoly on production, distribution and exhibition.

“Isle of Dogs” was conceived by Anderson and his screenwriting collaborators (Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Kunichi Nomura) as a pack of alpha dogs exiled to a garbage-dump as a result of a political conspiracy in Japan. So they cross-bred the urban milieu of Kurosawa’s “High and Low” with the tech surroundings of “Godzilla.”
The adventure they fashioned involved 12-year-old Atari (Koyu Rankin) and intrepid teenage reporter Tracy (Greta Gerwig) taking on corrupt and intolerant Mayor Kobayashi (Kunichi Nomura), and rescuing their city and the dogs (voiced by Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, Bill Murray,
