Here we are: the end of 2018. It’s been a big year, with too many important, hilarious, heart-wrenching, inspiring, tense and enthralling moments to recount, so instead, we’re going to focus on this year’s pop-culture moments that were watershed, important or just too damn wild not to be recalled.
In the world of film, TV, music and celebrity news, this was a busy year. We watched movies that changed us, like Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians. We saw reboot fever hit TV hard, with beloved shows like Roseanne (and later, The Conners), Murphy Brown, Magnum P.I. and Charmed returning to the small screen in vastly updated forms. When it came to celebrity news, we got word of surprising splits, thrilling celeb weddings, the births of lots of celebrity babies and, on a sadder note, we said goodbye to some very important celebs who died.
In short, so much has happened, but let’s take a moment to look back on the major pop-culture moments that will no doubt come to define 2018.
