Exclusive Supercut: Just the Amy and Tina Parts From the 2015 Golden Globes

Your Golden Globe awards aired last night, and there was plenty to talk about, but who’re we kidding: as per usual, the main attraction was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, doing a yeoman’s job in their third (and reportedly last) go-round as Globe hosts. But if you clicked away for THAT EPISODE of Girls, or didn’t feel like sitting through three hours of self-congratulation for their 15 minutes of comedy, we’ve got you covered: here is our exclusive supercut of the Tina and Amy stuff, aka just about all you really need to see. … Read More

The 15 Golden Globes 2015 Moments Everyone Will Be Talking About

The early theme of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards was one of diversity. Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey set a tone of irreverent feminist fun. Of course there were exceptions and dud moments — this is a Hollywood awards show, after all. But with heartfelt shout-outs to gay AIDS victims, rape survivors, civil rights activists, trans people, authentic women characters, and stars’ romantic partners of all stripes punctuating the night, it felt like the notoriously boozy telecast had, at least in some respects, finally caught up with its diverse… Read More

Noted Gender Expert Russell Crowe Explains Why Actresses Over 40 Complain About Hollywood’s Obsession With Youth

There are already plenty of reasons to loathe Russell Crowe. He is, by most accounts, a bullying boor; he hasn’t made a good movie in years (2007, by my clock); he’s one of those actors who insists on also playing rock star. Well, if all that weren’t enough, we can now add “sexist mansplainer” to Crowe’s CV, thanks to a face-palming interview in The Australian Woman’s Weekly, wherein he just wishes that all these lady actresses would learn to act their age. … Read More

The Slow Erosion of the TV vs. Movie Actor Class System

I know you’re supposed to let a movie draw you into its narrative without excess baggage, and its characters should exist only as themselves and so on, but I had an odd moment of external realization when I first saw About Alex (which is out this week on DVD, and is pretty good). The scene comes about six minutes into this junior Big Chill, and there’s nothing earth-shattering about it as a scene; Siri (Maggie Grace) meets Josh (Max Greenfield) and Sarah (Aubrey Plaza) at the train station to drive them to the cabin where they and several other old friends are spending the weekend. But as the three characters embraced and reconnected, something in the back of my head whispered, “Look, it’s Schmidt and April Ludgate meeting up with Shannon from Lost.” And no, that didn’t make this scene the culmination of some sort of weird TV fan fiction; it merely accentuated, with a rare bit of clarity, how much the game has changed for actors, in terms of the transition from TV to film (and back). … Read More
