New York Times Critic Has Totally Tone Deaf Reaction To “Transparent” Golden Globe Wins

  • New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley (the same critic who called Shonda Rhimes an “angry black woman”) implied that “Transparent” only did well at the Golden Globes because of political correctness, as if that makes any sense: “The Sony cyberattack revealed that Hollywood isn’t exactly a profile in courage, but it is an industry that rewards politically correct free speech. ‘Transparent,’ the Amazon.com series about a transgender man who comes out to his family as a woman, won best comedy and the best actor award for its star, Jeffrey Tambor. He dedicated his performance to transgender people.” Oh, and then she proceeded to misgender the show’s main character, a transgender woman named Maura, in the very next line. What the hell? [Slate]
