The cast of Black Panther almost cost me a laptop, my friendship with Lainey Lui, and probably my job. I was ready to tear apart her entire basement. I was ready to throw whatever I could at the TV screen. As soon as I saw Danai Gurira, Michael Bae Jordan Full Story

This hurts. I don’t want to do this. Gina Rodríguez is slowly starting to suffer from the Jameela Jamil condition of being charming and wonderful on television and well-meaning but grating in person. To put it simply, they both say dumb sh-t sometimes. Full Story

Chris Pine is my Chris. You know this. My allegiance to him is mostly unwavering. I’ve been riding for Chris Pine since Just My Luck and The Princess Diaries: Royal Engagement.

Richard Madden’s face is a distraction. I found his face distracting in Bodyguard. I mainlined the series in about a day so it’s not that his distractingly attractive features took away from my viewing experience, it’s just that Richard Madden’s got a face that you can’t stop staring at. 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.
