Happy National Ice Cream Month!

Sure, July’s most famous holiday is the one celebrating our fine nation’s birth, but let’s not forget one of the month’s other noteworthy events: National Ice Cream Month. In 1984, Ronald Reagan designated the whole month as such, and he also named the third Sunday of July (yesterday) National Ice Cream Day. His proclamation called for people to observe these with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” I neglected to eat any ice cream yesterday, but in the last 10 days of the month, I plan to give ice cream a proper celebration.

    The Emmy’s Reward Women, Rather Than Girls

    Being a woman of a certain age in Hollywood hasn’t been a desirable thing for a while, and roles tend to be few and far between once supple skin gets a little saggy and wrinkly. However, as much as we obsess over young celebs, it was the more established female crowd that won out in this year’s Emmy nominations. Only one actress nominated for an award, Ugly Betty‘s America Ferrera, is in her 20s. Almost all the Emmy-nominated actresses are older than 40, and those in their 40s are the young ones. Kyra Sedgwick, 42, is the youngest nominee for lead actress in a drama series (The Closer), and Laura Linney is the youngest to be nominated for lead actress in a miniseries or movie at age 44 (HBO’s John Adams). “People want to tune in to complex, interesting, quirky, unexpected, flawed characters, and that’s across the board, female and male,” said Rachel Griffiths, 39, nominated for Brothers & Sisters. “But the more mature actors maybe have an edge on confidence in terms of really owning those characters. I think as a young woman it’s considerably more difficult to amplify your unusual parts in quite the same way.” Why, because young women’s perky boobs are so distracting? However, it’s still a sad state in the world of movies. Like, WTF, Meryl Streep isn’t even mentioned on the movie posters for Mama Mia!?. However, after reading some of the movie’s reviews, maybe that’s better for her career. [AP] Keep reading »
