True to the End
Bill and Sookie for the win! I had been lamenting the dearth of True Blood coverage in EW of late, but you more than made up for it with this lovely tribute to my favorite TV show. Kudos on great pics, a charming interview, and some truly fangtastic memories.
I was very disappointed that your cover had only Anna Paquin naked while Stephen Moyer remained fully clothed. Even when True Blood went off the rails with its writing, it was refreshing to have a series that was so egalitarian in its use of nudity.
Film Studies 101
With all due respect to Professors Catherine Keener and Mark Ruffalo, both genuinely accomplished talents, I must take up the cause for some glaring omissions in their film curriculum (”26 Movies Every Young Actress Should See”). While their objective is admirable and they said their list is incomplete, Hailee Steinfeld should definitely watch several other stellar performances: namely, by Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda in The Lady Eve; Carole Lombard in To Be or Not to Be; and Vivien Leigh, Hattie McDaniel, and Olivia de Havilland in Gone With the Wind.
Thanks for devoting a whole page to Casey Kasem (Legacy). As a kid, I spent hours listening to him to find out which of my favorite songs had done well. His was always a soothing, friendly voice.

Charting a New Course
Where did ”The Chart” go (Movies)? I miss looking at all those numbers.
The editors respond… We made the decision to stop printing the box office chart because we felt that in this age of Internet immediacy, movie grosses live and breathe better online. We will continue to run a top 10 chart and offer box office analysis on EW.com.
