PureWow Pick for Best Season Finale: The White Lotus

Last night brought us the epic conclusion of The White Lotus season two. While not every single question was answered, plenty of them were. And man oh man, someone please give Jennifer Coolidge all the awards (she may well be on her way as she received a Golden Globe nom today). No spoilers here, but let's just say this wild episode (and the reveal of who the bodies were) did not disappoint. — Philip Mutz, PureWow’s VP of News & Entertainment

PureWow Pick for the Most Emotional TV Farewell: The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah, who's been keeping us all entertained with his lighthearted jokes and insightful, timely monologues over the past seven years, recently bid farewell to The Daily Show in a touching goodbye speech, and we’re still getting emotional just thinking about it. In his statement, the former host got teary-eyed as he reflected on how much the show has grown, what it feels like to have a loyal audience and how Black women have played a crucial role in his success. You might want to keep some tissues handy as you watch… — Nakeisha Campbell, PureWow’s Associate Editor of Entertainment & News

PureWow Pick for Most Controversial Documentary: Harry & Meghan

The first three episodes of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's docuseries are now streaming on Netflix, and they are 100 percent worth the watch. The royal couple discuss everything from their first date and their engagement to their highly publicized exit from the royal family. Prince Harry also explains how his late mother, Princess Diana, influenced his decision to leave London. Whether you follow the royal family or not, the documentary is filled with fascinating secrets about royalty and the media. — Greta Heggeness, PureWow’s Senior Editor of News & Entertainment

PureWow Pick for Most Nostalgic Reunion: The Griswolds

One of the most classic holiday comedies is easily National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, with its highly-memorable scenes of squirrels in Christmas trees and festive lights that knock out power from the whole neighborhood. And, we got an early gift this year when two of the film's stars, Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo (aka Clark and Ellen Griswold), reunited at Comic-Con. "Together again..." D'Angelo wrote on Instagram, as she and Chase posed for a selfie while donning tacky sweaters. Better yet, the pair also snapped a photo with model Christie Brinkley, who, in case you forgot, also made a cameo in two of the other National Lampoon films. Now, this is the gift that keeps on giving. — Joel Calfee, PureWow’s Assistant Editor of News & Entertainment
