It’s an unspoken rule of entertainment that the horror genre can deliver great roles to actresses in a way traditional dramatic often doesn’t.

It’s not like we didn’t know it was coming. Awards season has been preparing us for the inevitable: Green Book as the 2019 Best Picture winner. America, and its almost comically disrespectful Black History Month of bad news, has been preparing us for this too. Since it won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF, Green Book has had a shot at becoming one of those Best Picture winners that is looked back on with disdain and bewilderment, like Crash or Driving Miss Daisy. Full Story

The Golden Globes achieved something I thought I wouldn’t see in my lifetime. My parents never dared to believe their kids would get to see this day. My grandparents fought for this day. My children will remember this day in history. Sunday, January 6th, 2019 was the day that racism ended. I know, I know. Full Story

You know who wasn’t at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon yesterday? Frances McDormand. At least I don’t see her in any of the photos. And maybe this isn’t surprising. Remember at the SAGs when Frances won for Best Actress and got up on stage all like, hey, younger actresses need doorstops too Full Story

Octavia Spencer told a really great Show Your Work story at Sundance this week. Octavia and Jessica Chastain are good friends. Over a year ago, Jessica reached out to Octavia because she wanted them to do a movie together. During those discussions, they talked about pay equity and how men are paid so much more in Hollywood than women. Full Story

If you ask me to describe Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water, the short answer is: Amelie f*cks a fish monster.

You know those dramatic reenactments that feature in murder mystery shows where it’s like watching aliens pretend to be people because while everything looks normal enough, the interactions are just ever so slightly stiff and unnatural, like everyone is super aware of the camera on them? And do you remember the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, full of cutesy down-home anecdotes that seem to exist solely to make you cry? And you know the “For Dummies” books, which strip down every topic under the sun so that you can become a faux-expert in anything? Well, if you take all these ingredients—the not-quite-human drama of reenactments, the mawkish commodification of comfort, and the oversimplification of complex thought—and put them together in a movie, you get the new Chris Evans Full Story
