The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

It’s no mistake that the Critics’ Choice Awards come the day after the People’s Choice Awards. Celebs who don’t win the popular vote can drown their sorrows in the idea that perhaps, perhaps the critics adore them. But while the People’s Choice was a slightly less formal affair, the Critics, well, the Critics we dress up for. Find out who fared well and who critically missed the mark…

A few days ago, The Roots’ Questlove was on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” and he started some beef with Tina Fey, claiming that whenever she’s on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” she’s kind of not very friendly. Tina, being awesome, wanted to address this as quickly as possible, so she appeared on the show last night and resolved to squash their beef by ceremoniously chowing down on Ye Olde Hoagie of Forgiveness.

For those of you who aren’t from Philadelphia, a hoagie is a sandwich, and it is delicious. And Tina Fey’s impression of the Philadelphian accent is pretty much spot on. I won’t keep you in suspense: the sharing of the Hoagie of Forgiveness seemed to work like a charm. Perhaps it can be employed in other similar beefs? Say, peace in the Middle East? What if we made it Kosher? [Hulu]

11 Annoyingly Gorgeous Celebrity Model Children

Normally, we associate Noel Gallagher with the band Oasis, and his neverending tumultuous relationship/feud with brother Liam. But it seems that Noel’s also been busy raising a family. His daughter Anais — with ex-wife Meg Matthews — is now 11, has signed up with Select Model Management and had her first shoot with photographer Mario Testino. That’s a little bit fancier than your average family photo.

But Anais is hardly the only celeb spawn to pursue a model life. The kids of famous folk have long crept out from behind their parents’ shadows to revel in the spotlight. Click through for more celebrity kid models.

The Most Depressed Place To Live In The U.S.? Philadelphia!

Philly, how you feeling? Everything okay? According to info from Google, you guys are the most depressed city in the country. At least based on your Googling habits. According to researchers, Philadelphians search for depression-related terms more than people from any other city. And that kind of makes sense, considering Pennsylvania is the most depressed state in the country, based on the same set of criteria. Also in the top five most depressed cities: Dallas, Texas; Chicago, Illinois, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Seattle, Washington.

Now, before you feel too morose about your town making the list (compounding your no doubt already morose feelings), think of it this way — maybe it’s just that people in your city are more proactive about exploring their emotions, while those of us in other cities and towns are just shoving our emotions down and eating our feelings. Yes, that’s it. [PsychCentral]

We couldn’t be more excited about the new Wes Anderson movie, “Moonrise Kingdom,” about a boy and girl who run away from home together. The cast includes Anderson mainstays Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, along with Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Bruce Willis. But why I’m really, really excited? My friend Jessica Hische was tapped to do the movie titles! She’s a stellar graphic designer and typographist and I am mega-mega stoked for her. So check out this adorable trailer and pay close attention to the type. [Indiewire]

The next time you open a copy of Spin magazine, there’s one thing you won’t be seeing: record reviews. That’s because the magazine’s editors have decided that they’ll no longer be devoting print editorial space to reviewing music. Instead, they’ll be tackling the difficult task of telling readers what to listen to via a new Twitter account: @SPINreviews.

And here’s what Spin’s senior editor Chris Weingarten had to say about it…
