Once again, it was a big year in Hollywood East, as stars of both the big and little screens made their way through the area, working on projects. Stars who have connections to the New England area also played a big part in the entertainment scene, winning awards and starring in their own projects that only further helped prove that Hollywood East is a talent-laden land. Let’s take a look back at the year that was.

Current reigning queen of pop, the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga, made  a much heralded appearance in Cambridge to help launch her Born This Way Foundation, in conjunction with Harvard University

In television the Kardashians came to Boston for a bit, and NBC’s “Smash” shot their season 1 finale here. New England born or educated stars like Barbara Walters, Bronson Pinchot, and Maria Menounos made their own headlines. Menounos in particular had a lot going on–appearing in a bikini in Times Square after losing a bet, then later competing on “Dancing with the Stars,” and celebrating her 34th birthday in Hollywood.

Ben Affleck finally joined Facebook, and Argo was released this fall to critical acclaim.

We talked to folks like writer/actor Adriano Masciarelli, musician Justin Beech, and other talented stars from around our area who are working on exciting projects in entertainment.

A plethora of films shot in Hollywood East this summer, including Labor Day, Grown Ups 2, The Heat, and The Way Way Back

Overall, it was yet another exciting year here at HEC, with lots more already being lined up for 2013. Stay tuned!
