The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh At The 2012 Writer’s Guild Awards

This past weekend, the Writer’s Guild held simultaneous awards shows on both the east and west coasts. Stars — I suppose the particularly writer-friendly stars — showed their appreciation by turning out in droves. And Zooey Deschanel, who filed for divorce earlier this year, encouraged the nerdy writers to make a pass at her. Joking during the opening of the west coast awards ceremony, Deschanel said, “Welcome to Nerd Prom. Male writers, you are so hot with your minds and plaid shirts. Hit on me.” Well, okay then. Check out Deschanel’s tartan gown — and all the rest — in the gallery above…

Listen, Zooey Deschanel, You’re Not Weird — But These 12 Awesome Ladies Are!

I’ve been on the fence about Zooey Deschanel for some time now. Partly because she sang a ridiculously cute song with My Fantasy Boyfriend a few weeks ago, and partly because I feel that she’s cultivated this totally annoying Manic Pixie Dream Indie Rock Girl persona, and it just seems to goddamn fake. But then I’m like, eh, maybe I’m just jealz. Zooey D. has a TV show! And no credit card debt! And a cotton commercial wherein her warbly voice sings about “the touch, the feel” whilst we peer into her cavernous closet full of retro-inspired frocks. Good for her.

And then I read her interview in Allure magazine and I wanted to die. Keep reading »

Why Are Manic Pixie Dream Girls Getting Dumber?

Look, let’s put aside the fact that manic pixie dream girls are inherently irritating, because the purpose of a woman’s life is not to make a boring accountant realize that he should run around naked in traffic. Unless that is her job, somehow. Unless it’s some sort of life coaching thing. Then I guess… life coaching is a field that really exists, in the real world, that real people pay for. People make choices. But that is never the case with manic pixie dream girls in the movies or television, because they never seem to have calculated career paths. They don’t want career paths! They just want to live!

That’s fine. That trope has existed for a very, very long time. The problem is not that that trope exists, it’s that it’s getting worse. Read more…

These pre-fame pictures of Zooey Deschanel circa 2001 made me like her again. Before her extensive collection of vintage-y cotton dresses and her perfectly sideswiped bangs, she was wearing fishnets just like the rest of us alterna-chicks.  I will be merciful on her chunky shoes and wrong-length hemlines, because really, I was in much worse style shape 11 years ago. Three words: velvet leopard pants. Yes, I did. [Daily Mail UK]
