A legend has died!

David Smyrl, the actor best-known for playing Mr. Handford on Sesame Street, died on Tuesday at Lukenau Medical Center in Philadelphia. He was 80 years old.

Smyrl joined Sesame Street in 1990, playing the former fireman-turned-store owner, and was with the show through 1998.

He played the character a little less grumpy than did the previous actor, Leonard Jackson, and Smyrl was well-liked throughout his tenure on the show.

According to reports, the actor died of lung cancer, a disease he had developed back in January.

The actor also appeared routinely on the sitcom Benson in the 1970s, winning a People's Choice Award for his work there, and he played contractor Sam Lucas on The Cosby Show, on which he also was a writer.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

BAFTA Award Nominations Announced — But Some Of Your Favorites Have Been Snubbed! See The Nominees & Biggest Snubs HERE!

no title

Time for more announcements!

Award season is here which means we get to find out what 2015 movies will be nominated!

While the Golden Globe nominations have already come in, as well as the SAG Awards, and the People's Choice Awards have already passed, it's time for some bigger award shows!

While the Academy Awards won't be announced until next week, the 68th Annual BAFTA Awards were announced via live-stream video this morning by Stephen Fry and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

Video: Check Out All The Highlights From This Year's People's Choice Awards!

The list is mostly what you'd expect, but there were a couple major surprises regarding snubs as neither Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Hanks were nominated. In fact, David O. Russell's Joy wasn't nominated at all!

Another arguable snub was British actress Charlotte Rampling who didn't receive a nomination for her romantic drama 45 Years despite there being buzz that she could land an Oscar nod this year!

Perhaps one of the most puzzling omissions though was Spectre which didn't receive a SINGLE nomination! The reason this is a bit of a shock is the previous Bond film, Skyfall, not only won Outstanding British Film in 2013, but it was nominated for eight total awards!

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know who you think was snubbed!

Social Media Star Matt Bellassai Makes Light Of His People's Choice Awards Snub With A Hilarious PSA! Watch It HERE!

What a PERFECT way to handle an awkward situation!

For those who don't know, social media celeb and star of Whine About It Matt Bellassai had a very inneresting time at the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night. Essentially, when Matt won favorite social media star of the year, the camera panned onto the WRONG person.

Ah, how humiliating and uncomfortable! At least M.B. and the mistaken person (who happens to be Eric Vetro, a very talented vocal coach in El Lay), took the gaffe with grace AND humor!

But wait! Bellassai was able to right the cameraman's wrong with a hysterical "PSA" making fun of the whole situation. Let's just say we now know why Matt won the coveted award last night!
