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 »
At the Power of Story: Serious Ladies panel at Sundance, in which Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Kristen Wiig, and Jenji Kohan discussed life as female artists, Dunham brilliantly pointed out the obvious regarding Woody Allen’s repeated onscreen “perv” behavior. Dunham is frequently taking the heat for the screw-ups of her “Girls” character Hannah Horvath, as if the two are the same person. As she mentioned at the panel, male writers are much less likely to be compared to the characters they play on camera. Like, for example, Woody Allen:
“Woody Allen is proof that people don’t think everything he says in his films is stuff that he does because all he was doing was making out with 17-year olds for years and we didn’t say a word about it. And then he did it! A bunch!…No one went, ‘oh, Woody Allen’s making out with a 17-year old in ‘Manhattan’ I guess he’s a real perv’…And then, lo and behold…”

While we still have to wait until February to get “Last Week Tonight” back, John Oliver has a made a habit of popping by the YouTube every so often in order to keep us from going into full withdrawal. And to give us something quick to post on a Monday morning before we are fully ready to start saying anything particularly clever or smart.
Anyway, this week, Oliver came on to “apologize” for starting a #NotMyChristian hashtag, protesting the casting of Jaime Dornan as Christian Grey in the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, which he acknowledges may have been taken the wrong way. Keep reading »
Love her or hate her, there’s no question about it: Kim Kardashian is the undisputed star of her wildly famous family. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say she’s the star of the entire E! Network. And Us Weekly. And Instagram. And the Internet, despite the fact that she failed to break it. People often complain about how overexposed Kim Kardashian….but does that stop them from clicking on stories about her? From following her on Instagram? From hate-watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”? Nope. Because if it did, she wouldn’t be so insanely famous. Read more on College Candy…
