Rebel Wilson Was A Great Host, But Can She Please Cut The Fat Jokes

Rebel Wilson Was A Great Host, But Can She Please Cut The Fat Jokes

I absolutely love Rebel Wilson so I was thrilled when I heard she would be hosting the MTV Movie Awards. It has been seven long years since a woman has hosted and Rebel is the comedy girl of the moment.

5 Reasons Why Working Girl Is Still Awesome Today

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Mike Nichols film Working Girl. The film truly took America by storm, capturing the honest reality of the tricky social waters of business (and who can forget that amazing Carly Simon soundtrack.

Is strong, sensible Hillary Clinton turning into a simpering romantic comedy heroine? More »

Golden Globe Nominees Include Hosts Tina Fey And Amy Poehler, Plus A Few Surprises

The Golden Globes will take place on January 13, and let’s be honest: The most exciting thing about them is that they’re going to be hosted by hilarious, inspirational BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I would watch those two host an awards ceremony for a regional toilet-paper manufacturing association. That said, nominations were announced this morning, and there were some interesting surprises!

If Women Ran Hollywood It Would Be More Inclusive And Films About Male Strippers And Sparkly Vampires Would Be Hits. Oh Wait..

If Women Ran Hollywood It Would Be More Inclusive And Films About Male Strippers And Sparkly Vampires Would Be Hits. Oh Wait..

The Hollywood Reporter put out its annual ‘Most Powerful Women in Hollywood’ issue this week. Most of the most powerful women are heads of studios (Anne Sweeney, co-chairman of Disney Media Networks came in at number one) but by the time we were in the 40′s we got to Tina Fey and blockbuster queens Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep came in at 50. But when a number of these powerful women (and a few men) were asked what it would be like if women really did run Hollywood, their answers were surprising. More »
