Patricia Arquette gave one of the best speeches at last night’s Oscars, calling for equal pay and equal rights for women and earning the enraptured applause of Meryl Streep. But backstage in the press room, Arquette continued her call to action, saying some things that were decidedly tone deaf.

Richard Pryor’s Prescient Pre-Twitter Statements Regarding The Oscars

In advance of this year’s very white Oscars it’s sobering to read that infamous comedian Richard Pryor called it way back when.

The Oscar Nominations Are So White Yet Again As “Selma” Is Basically Snubbed

The Academy Award nominations were announced today and lemme just tell you something, I am underwhelmed. Snubbing the actors AND the director, Ava DuVernay, of “Selma,” but nominating Bradley Cooper and Keira Knightley? UGHHHHHH x 1000.

Don’t Miss Your Chance To See Adele Dazeem On Broadway!

Having her name butchered by John Travolta at the Academy Awards on Sunday has maybe turned out to be the best thing to happen to Idina Menzel.
