Weekend one of SXSW was filled with lots of conversations, activations, celebrity sightings and, most importantly, FUN!

Here are the best moments from the first weekend of the action packed festival.

Most Famous Person We Saw

Charlize Theron, who is one word is, “Perfection.”

Most Random Run In

Though we spotted a handful of celebs we were’t aware were in town, our fave was Brooke Davis, AKA Sophia Bush.

Most Entertaining Celeb

Again, we encountered quite a few entertaining celebs, but the MOST entertaining was Miss Busy Philipps.

Celeb Who Looks Most Amazing

This one goes to Judith Light. Your light still shines bright, Angela Bower!

Biggest Badass

This one is a three-way tie between Pamela Adlon and the ladies of Late Night, Jenny Hagel and Amber Ruffin.

Celeb We Almost Didn’t Recognize

Has Will Forte always been this thin or did he drop some weight?

Best Party

Though we happened to be at three birthday celebrations on Sunday, the best one most definitely had to be the Booksmart party. Read more about it here. By the way, the other bdays were Jay Duplass and Pollyanna Macintosh.

Olivia Wilde

Best Prop

Michael Scott’s desk at the Comcast NBCU House was a big hit, even with those of us who didn’t actually watch The Office.

Cutest Couple

Tom Cullen and Tatiana Maslany are the cutest. Enough said.

Most True to Character

Interviewed June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn Decker at the Texas Film Awards and it felt like I popped right into an episode of Grace and Frankie.

Nicest Celeb

Ben Platt is a doll. We caught up with the Tony winner at the Run This Town afterparty at the Supper Suite (more on that coming soon).

Best Installation

I know you are expecting it to be Game of Thrones but I more enjoyed Audible’s Heads Will Roll event at Javelina and the Good Omens Garden of Earthly delights.

Best Sign Someone Had A Good Night

Yep, those are panties in the bush out front of The Line hotel.
