Casey Affleck Best Actor over Denzel Washington. Or do you prefer Jezebel's headline "F-cking Creep Wins Oscar"? For the last 13 years, the actor who wins the SAG goes on to win the Oscar. Denzel took the SAG. And Casey broke the trend, killed the streak. 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

Every year, I watch the Oscars with my friend Liz. Every year, she makes fun of me for getting too emotional. This year, she decided to keep a running tally of how many times I cried. The first tears shed were for Mahershala Ali Full Story

Hi you! I don’t have to tell you this, but you’re getting pretty popular. People who didn’t know you last year call you ‘Lin’ now. I’m pretty sure your mom charmed everyone so much she’s about to get movie offers. Full Story

Sorry about the not-very-creative title but there really is no way to say it. Dev Patel was the cutest last night. No, Lainey, Sunny Pawar was the cutest. Sunny was cute but one-dimensionally, like cute little kid cute. Full Story

Ava Duvernay did not win her first Oscar last night. Her documentary 13th lost to Ezra Edelman’s 6-hour “film” OJ: Made in America. I loved both docs but considering Edelman’s OJ was more of a docu-miniseries that maybe should have won some Emmys instead of an Oscar, I was pulling for Duvernay. Full Story

The other night I told someone how, years ago, I was convinced I hated this show. I yelled at the TV, talked sh*t about it to anyone who would listen. In fact, my roommate would leave the room while I got all worked up about it—which meant I was sitting there watching it alone. Which is how I realized, one day, like the end of a romcom, that I didn’t hate the show—I kind of loved it. Full Story

Meryl Streep is an icon. But Meryl Streep has 20 Oscar nominations and 3 wins. She loses 85% of the time at the Oscars. Which means she’s also used to losing. Isabelle Huppert… I’m not sure Isabelle has that losing percentage. Full Story

Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to be a celebrity, because obviously. But not the ones who say they live in a hotel and haven’t been home in a year and a half, because that’s boring. Sometimes, you take on a kind of grumpy, un-showy role in Hidden Figures because, I assume, you want to be a part of the movie or work with some of the players. Full Story
