The SAG Awards were last night, and you probably watched them if you’re a major awards-show junkie. If not, you missed out on two really incredible speeches by Uzo Aduba and Viola Davis, who won in each of their categories. Their speeches were free of the typical faux humility and breathless “What, me? An award?! You shouldn’t have!” sentiment that most are replete with, and they were a delight to watch. Check out Davis’s speech, which legitimately gave me goosebumps, above, and watch Aduba’s speech after the jump. Keep reading »

It’s a sad day for all pun-loving Beyhive members. TMZ reports that Beyonce caught wind of the extremely popular “Feyoncé” merchandise that has been floating around Etsy, and had her lawyers send a strongly worded letter to the online retailer, requesting that the offending items be removed. The mugs are gone, but if you do a quick Etsy search you can still get an awful lot of crap, emblazoned with a pun so horrible it makes my head hurt. Word to the wise: Bey is always, always watching. Stay woke. [TMZ]
The Sundance Film Festival has started, and one of the movies to come out of it is Celina Sciamma’s “Girlhood,” the coming-of-age story we all need. It’s about Marieme, a Black teenager growing up in the projects near Paris, and how she falls in with a tough girl gang. This scene, which Vulture premiered exclusively today, is a joyous, giddy celebration of friendship. These girls, dancing to Rihanna in a hotel room they rented with money they stole, are the perfect embodiment of that soul-swallowing, bone-crushing female friendship you experience in your teens. The film opens in New York on January 30th, and will certainly show up at a indie movie theater near you. [Vulture]
Normcore’s time has come and gone, and health goths still cling desperately to relevancy, but but ready your body because Babycore is the new hotness, and it is going to slay every pre-conceived notion you had of what you should be wearing. Refinery29 reports on this dubious “trend” as artist Matt Starr’s desire to push the boundaries of our ceaseless obsession with nostalgia. In an interview with Paper Magazine, he says that “There’s a playful, laid back and comfortable aesthetic to baby clothes that most adult clothing brands don’t offer.” Yes, that’s right, Babycore is all about adults embracing BABY FASHION.

For once, Lea Michele and I are on the same page. Last night on “Jimmy Kimmel,” she revealed that she threw up while singing “Let It Go” — and the entire thing was caught on camera. While this video has yet to surface, I am excited that I live in a world where even Lea Michele, my worst nightmare, cannot tolerate the aural nightmare that is “Let It Go.” Watch her talk about it with Kimmel above, and if you have footage of this momentous occasion, please send it to me so that I may watch it when I’m feeling blue.
