Hidden Figures had a big opening weekend. There are no words to express how happy this makes me. The fact that this film made money has power. It means that, hopefully, we’ll get to see more stories about the nameless, faceless women of colour who made history. As Lainey mentioned in her intro yesterday Full Story

The cast of Hidden Figures received the Best Ensemble Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last night. The film opens everywhere Friday. We’ve been yelling at you for months to make plans to go see this movie. In August, I geeked out over the debut trailer’s blatant celebration of black girl brilliance Full Story

If you've been watching the Olympics, you know how much the past 10 days have been an epic display of #BlackGirlMagic. Fittingly, the trailer for Hidden Figures was released last night during Sunday's Olympic coverage. It's the story of three brilliant African American women, played by Taraji P Henson Full Story

Ryan Coogler was honoured by the American Black Film Festival the other night with the Rising Star Award. The award was presented to him by Octavia Spencer who he directed in Fruitvale Station. People keep saying that Ryan is an emerging talent. I feel like he’s kinda arrived now, non? Have you seen Creed yet? If you haven’t, you don’t have to wait long. Full Story

Look, I might argue that the TV ladies’ roundtable was a little more fun and rollicking, but there is no denying this was a delicious interview, whether you consume it on video (again, it’s an hour, but it doesn’t feel that long) or in print. Full Story

There are so few things in life that a person can feel %100 good about. French fries, sunshine, even Beyonce -- most things that are ostensibly pure have a destructive and evil side. BUT we’ve got some news today that can do nothing but spread joy and cheer across the land – Octavia Spencer is going to star in a reboot of…MURDER…SHE WROTE! It’s like…you know that thing where Ryan Murphy tries to make a show for/about gay stuff, so he just takes every single gay thing on Earth – Kathy Bates, teen witches, Dylan McDermott’s ass, etc. Full Story

Octavia Spencer wore a gorgeous sort of pale ochre-y deep cream piece of fanciness which suited her really nicely with an off-centre neckline of which is surprising and unusual without being too try-hard-y. This is exactly the right note you want to strike for the year after you win an Oscar – understated and beautiful and it’s not about you but oh, how good the year has been to you. Full Story

Obviously nobody wants to use a cliche any more than they want to be a cliche, right? It's not flattering or bragworthy to say that what you do or have been doing can be summed up in a cliche or its sister, the catchphrase.   But Octavia Spencer did just that. She kept her eye on the prize. Full Story

Viola Davis was honoured by the NAACP on Friday night in LA. Orange looks amazing on her. And the accessories are beautiful too. But the breasts all out like that and so, um, smushed... I just think maybe it cheapens someone who is never, ever cheap. Much better on Sunday at the Writers Guild Awards, lovely in black and white by RAOUL, with Octavia Spencer, who also seems to be collecting an award every weekend, with The Help director Tate Taylor. Full Story
