7. TV: Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011
Never mind the inescapable Kardashians. Also on Walters’s annual list is our favorite sitcom couple, Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, as well as our most colorful ally, Katy Perry. Find out who Walters will name as her number 1 on ABC December 14.
6. DVD: Big Love:The Complete Collection
The compelling drama about a polygamist (played by Bill Paxton) and his wives (portrayed by Jeanne Tripplehorn, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Chloë Sevigny), created and executive-produced by gay couple Will Scheffer and Mark V. Olsen, ran for five seasons on HBO. It wasn't until season 4 that fans saw a gay storyline, but it was a doozy when power-mad Alby (memorably portrayed by Matt Ross) fell apart over Dale Tomasson (Ben Koldyke).
5. DVD: Mangus!
Fat Girls filmmaker Ash Christian
returns with this festival favorite about the behind-the-scenes
squabbles to stage a small-town production of Jesus Christ Spectacular. Christian told The Advocate he
drew inspiration for the campy comedy, which he also wrote, "from
growing up an outsider and my love for small-town community theater ...
and my love for hometown stardom." Out actress Heather Matarazzo stars
with Jennifer Coolidge and Leslie Jordan. If you need more incentive to
watch, John Waters makes a deus ex machina cameo — literally!
