Janelle Monae is smarter than me. I know. I’m not surprised either. And yet.  I’ve been loving how much Janelle Monae we’ve gotten this awards season, the double-dip of having her in two big showy casts. Full Story

Good sweet LORD, Taraji P. Henson, you looked like something else last night. The dress and the hair and the sleepy-smoky eye makeup. Obviously she’s fantastic looking and has had other great looks this awards season, but this one, even though it wasn’t the most revealing or creative or whatever, was drop dead stunning-sexy. Full Story

Moonlight, the second film from writer/director Barry Jenkins, poses a lot of questions about race, class, identity, sexuality, masculinity, what it means to be black in America, to be gay in America, to be black and gay in America, and whether or not we’re ready to admit that Boyhood was sh*t Full Story
