Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...

What Joaquin Phoenix got right at the Oscars

What Joaquin Phoenix got right at the Oscars Actor Joaquin Phoenix has been lambasted for his acceptance speech at the 2020 Academy Awards, in which he lent the weight of his celebrity to stamping out the grave evil of domesticating cattle. However, Phoenix made a vital, if less noticed, point that every person should accept and appreciate. It’s worth saying at the outset that this is not to say that the condemnation of Phoenix, who accepted an Oscar for h...

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...

New Joaquin Phoenix Movie From Mike Mills and A24 Involves a Road Trip (and Effects From Peter Jackson’s WETA Digital)

Joaquin Phoenix, you just won an Oscar for playing a smelly clown! What are you going to do next? The answer: star in an A24 film for director Mike Mills. Word of this project first surfaced last year, and now, details are starting to trickle out. The plot involves Phoenix’s character traveling across the country with his nephew. That may sound like a simple indie movie, but it’s worth noting that Peter Jackson‘s WETA Digital is creating special effects for the film, suggesting something unconv...

CS Soapbox: Would a Joker Sequel Sully Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar?

BEGIN SLIDESHOW CS Soapbox: Would a Joker Sequel Sully Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar? Todd Phillips’  Joker  made waves last year for not only being the most profitable R-rated movie ever made but for possibly redefining the comic book genre. Led by Joaquin Phoenix’s powerhouse Oscar-winning performance as the titular character,  Joker  resembles more a character study on mental illness and societal isolation than an action-packed superhero film. This  Taxi Driver -esque take on Batman...

What the Awkward, Endless Oscars Could Learn From Last Weekend’s Other Star-Studded Awards Show

Now that the Academy Awards are consistently a slog, it’s always strange when the ceremony ends on an unexpectedly positive note. No matter which contender you were pulling for, Parasite‘s Best Picture upset Sunday night was a thrilling victory—for class-conscious art at a time of unprecedented inequality, for international cinema in a country that exports too many cultural products and imports too few, for a nonwhite cast and crew after yet another year of nominations that were #SoWhite an...

Self-flagellation and stuffed goody bags: my night at the tacky, endearing Oscars

The 2020 Academy Awards was a bit like being stuck in a basement, watching the rich and beautiful frolic above - in other words a lot like the winning picture, Parasite. Thank God for Keanu Reeves!There must be a word – maybe in German, or possibly in Korean – for that piquant feeling of being at one of the most exclusive events in the world, surrounded by people who have only ever turned left on a plane, but are now cheering on a movie about the corrosive effects of class barriers.

Oscars 2020: Here’s what the Academy voters got right

I’ll never say anything bad about the Oscars again. Well, at least not until next awards season. Wait, OK, there’s this: It’s taken the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 92 friggin’ tries to finally recognize that Hollywood isn’t the only place in the world that makes a Best Picture. Choosing Bong Joon Ho’s uncategorizably original class war parable “Parasite” as the first non-English winner in the top category was some kind of going the extra mile, however.

From Keanu Reeves to Saoirse Ronan, the 2020 Oscars Was a Big Night for Bringing Your Mom to the Work Function

In most jobs it would be pretty odd to bring your mom to the office party, even if you would really like her to extol your unique brand of genius to the boss and explain that you are really a very good worker. Yet, if you work in Hollywood, bringing your mom to a work function can earn glowing headlines and make the hearts of fans on Twitter go pitter pat as they gush over the cuteness of it all. At the 2020 Oscars, movie stars’ unique ability to bring their mom to work functions without pe...

"We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby... Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal."

Said Joaquin Phoenix, accepting the Oscar last night for his performance as a clown-faced murderer. As you can see in that short quote, he's expressing effusive empathy for his fellow creatures, but I wouldn't see his movie, because I believe there is something soul-damaging — something erosive of empathy — in watching the graphic depiction of murder. I don't know why Phoenix considered "Joker" a good place to put his talent, then lectures us about our insufficient love for the living things of ...

Is it too late even to try to understand Joe Biden's calling a woman a "lying dog-faced pony soldier," or is this nothing but an absurd epitaph on a dead political campaign?

ADDED: Here's my reaction, and I have not looked at much of the commentary. I think Biden believes he's lovable, and he can kid in a silly way and people will know it's all in good fun. I don't know why he thinks he can swing around so freely when he's trying to gain the deep trust needed to be President, but I don't know why anyone pushing 80 thinks he can be President or why a grown man in politics thinks he can nuzzle and sniff at the hair of young girls other than to think he thinks he's Joe...
