It’s only July and some might consider it a bit too early to be making any predictions about who’s going to win, but we can’t help ourselves.

Amy Adams Gives up Seat for American Soldier

Read More

Reporting on the events she saw on her flight, Jamele Hill witnessed Amy Adams giving up her first class seat to an American soldier, something the flight crew has never seen before but frankly, they should see more often. I’d go so far as to say that any American soldier flying in the US from combat should automatically be upgraded to first class. “I was on a flight from Detroit…

Read More

Oscar contenders come and go, and before long they’ve reached a point where it seems like nothing they can or will ever do will give them the win. For women it’s worse than it is for men.  Of course, for minorities it’s near impossible.  The endless celebration of the talents of Jennifer Lawrence say everything about how Hollywood views successful actresses now.

Maleficent: How Disney is Reshaping its own Princess Legacy, Giving Back What was Taken

Read More

Make no mistake, Maleficent is a revisionist, feminist retelling of a familiar princess story, one of THE princess stories. When I was a little girl, my favorite Disney movie was Sleeping Beauty.
