I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is over. I know, I know. It just started, for sure, but the kids are back in school and the film festival circuit has begun.
But before we bid farewell to summer 2014 forever, I want to hand out some honors for the stand-out performances and the characters and body parts that made this season one to remember.
