Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Dame Helen Mirren read a prepared text regarding the year soon past.

Mirren is an Oscar-winning superstar well-known for playing Queen Elizabeth in several productions.

"2016 was a big pile of sh*t."

The thread below is available to share your views of 2016, and especially if something GOOD happened that you'd like to share. We could all use the good news.

Can you help us out?
