Many of the headlines coming out of the Oscar nominations this morning read that the Academy has just “barely averted” #OscarsSoWhite because of the inclusion of Cynthia Erivo and Parasite which is true… I guess… but it’s also a total simplification. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Leading up to Christmas, the predominant headline about Little Women was that they were having a hard time getting men to come to the screenings which may have been why the film was largely ignored by the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild.  Read Full Intro

I am a garden-variety internet addict who loves clothing and spectacle, so during or after an awards show, I obviously search obsessively to find out who designed the outfits I love (or despise).

The first trailer has been released, and I immediately watched it three times in a row. Holy sh*t. I mean, HOLY SH*T. Full Story

“I’m Beautiful, And I’m Here” People swear that you have to see Hamilton. People brag about their tickets, about their transformative experiences about the show. They refer to Lin-Manuel Miranda by his first syllable, they unearth obscure references in even the less-celebrated songs, and wave their merch around, even if they’ve never actually seen the show. Full Story
