Another SXSW has come and gone and as we look back, we can’t help but smile at the good times we had at SXSW 2015.
As we started learning three years ago, it is simply impossible to do everything you want to do. So, instead of running ourselves ragged trying to get to all the red carpets and see all the big films, we ditched the schedule (for the most part) and simply went where the day took us.
And, oh, the places we would go.
Here are our top ten moments from SXSW 2015.
10 – Crossing paths with Glee‘s Lauren Potter
At the Samsung Lounge we spotted Potter, who played Becky Jackson on Glee. The actress also stars in Guest Room which premiered at the fest.
9 – The Mophie rescue dogs
8 – Angie TriBeCa
I am not a sitcom/comedy person. But the Airplane style humor in this new TBS series had me in stiches.
The panel that followed, featuring Steve and Nancy Carell and Rashida Jones, was hilarious as well.
I now have a girl crush on Jones, who I later spotted wearing the rocking leather jacket pictured here.
7 – Randomly running into Cameron Frye
6 – All the cats!
Met Morris (or, more likely, a descendant of the famous ginger), Grumpy, Waffles, Oskar and Klaus.
But then there was our most favorite, Lil Bub.
5 – A selfie with Sally Field
We like her. We really like her.
4 – A selfie stick at the Mashable party
Because there’s no one who needs a selfie stick more than us.
3 – Nat Geo’s Escape the Cold
We had the best time at the Nat Geo Escape the Cold experience. 30 more seconds and we’d have escaped.
Afterwards, we hung with Sue, the star of the Life Below Zero series. She is fascinating!
2 – All the 80s
In addition to the run-in with Alan Ruck, we watched The Breakfast Club with Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy in attendance, snapped a pic with John Cusack in the background and screened Christian Slater’s new series Mr. Robot.
1 – All the TV
With all the TV programming, we had little time for film and we’re totally OK with that. Lifetime screened the new drama UnREAL, CW premiered iZombie, FX showed The Comedians and, as previously mentioned, TBS previewed Angie Tribeca while USA brought the entire cast of Mr. Robot to the fest.
