As we look back on 2013, it’s easy to round up the best and worst of XYZ. But what about those things that surprised us? It’s so easy to make a snap judgement on a TV show or album before anyone has had a chance to watch or hear it. The same goes for everything on this list. From the onset, things like Pacific Rim and Sound of Music Live, sounded like awful ideas but the execution, the spectacle, even the live-tweeting somehow made it better. It turns out these things weren’t such disasters after all. In fact, they were the biggest surprises of 2013.

Even The Gossip Table weighs in on what the found surprisingly delightful this year. Cronuts? Yum! North West? Cutest name ever!

Now, back to the list at hand:

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20

In the 20th cycle of the show, Tyra Banks added guys to the modeling competition. What should have been a total disaster turned out to be the shot in the arm America’s Next Top Model needed. Sure the show is a shell of what it once was, but the guys brought in a new element of drama making Friday nights worth staying in again.

Britney Spears’ “Everytime” in Spring Breakers

This movie was so wrong on so many levels but some how it came together as a wild cautionary tale of pop culture-obsessed youth spiraling out of control. However, the moment that brought the film together in a montage of the girls and James Franco enjoying a crime spree set to Spears’ love-lost ballad.

Emma Watson’s Post-Hermione Film Career

Following the last Harry Potter film, fans quickly hedged bets on who was going to have a career after all the magic had worn off. Daniel Radcliffe emerged as a frontrunner until Watson put out The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Suddenly, everyone was rethinking the starlet’s potential. In 2013, she escaped the life of a child star by taking on adult roles in two successful films, The Bling Ring and This Is The End. Not to mention, she showed stunning poise and grace in interview after red carpet after talk show appearance. If there was a breakout year for any star, it was hers.

Godzilla Teaser Trailer

If there’s one remake we don’t need is Godzilla. Seriously, after the Matthew Broderick disaster, the legendary monster’s legacy was tainted for good. However, the 2-minute teaser promises to give lizard new life on the big screen. It was dark, chilling and kept the monster at bay, only teasing fans with shots of (hottie) Aaron Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen.

Kimye’s Pregnancy

As soon as it was announced in late 2012 that Kim Kardashian was pregnant with Kanye West’s baby, the Internet was in an uproar. The rapping genius was now forever associated with the reality star and Blue Ivy’s kid “cousin” was going to be a Kardashian. However, as the pregnancy went on, fans (and naysayers) were greeted with Kardashian’s Met Gala floral couch dress (a meme that keeps on giving), West on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (awkward yet delightful) and a pregnant Kim who actually grounded Kanye’s craziness. Ultimately, the best gift was Baby North. There’s no denying that North is the cutest, (second) most powerful baby in the U.S. and the only baby we cared about this year, aside from Prince George.

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly, “Do What You Want”

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly on the same song sounds like a recipe for disaster but the track turned out to be one of the sexiest throwbacks to ‘90s R&B. The song brought out the best of Kelly giving Gaga the best track on Artpop.

For the most part we should think of this as a happy 2013 Wrap + Up list: Whether they went there by choice or by court order, the celebrities who checked themselves into rehab to overcome drug, alcohol and anger management issues were taking the first steps toward healthier lives. Unfortunately, we already know that the substance abuse has no quick and easy solution, and treatment didn’t save the lives of Cory Monteith or Lisa Robin Kelly.

But let’s go back to the bright side. Zac Efron, Adam Shankman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Vargas, Chief Keef, Oscar de la Hoya and Josh Brolin are closer to making their careers as long and healthy as we want them to be. And if that means we also have to tolerate longevity from the likes of Chris Brown and Brooke Mueller, we guess we’re OK with that. Will stays in cushy resorts finally end the troubles of Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes and Lamar Odom? We don’t know yet. But we’ll be rooting for them the whole way. Or, we’ll be back here in 2014, chronicling their return rounds.

We’re used to seeing pictures of supermodel Gisele Bundchen wearing next to nothing, so why is a photo of her in a white terry cloth robe setting Instagram on fire? The breastfeeding might have something to do with it! The runway queen shared a pic on social media that shows her breastfeeding her 1-year-old daughter Vivian Lake while being surrounded by a crew of makeup-artists and hairy stylists.

“What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready,” she captioned the photo. It makes sense that she’d share such an intimate moment, as Gisele has always felt strongly about breastfeeding. In August 2010 she told the Daily Mail that “‘There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.” Looks like she’s practicing what she preaches!

Everyone knows that it’s incredibly hard work being a working mom, and being a famous working mom has got to be even worse. But Gisele and fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels like Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio seem to do an amazing (and adorable) job balancing their duties. Head up to the gallery above to she more supermodels being super moms!
