 Melissa McCarthy is my spirit animal. She, and a host of other brilliant, badass ladies are slowly conquering the male-dominated mountain that is modern comedy, and for that I am eternally grateful. Her growing resume speaks for itself, from hosting Saturday Night Live three times to her hilarious performances in blockbusters like The Heat and her upcoming film Tammy (opening July 2nd). She has asserted herself as a comedy powerhouse and ... Read More
When Kim Novak took the stage at the Oscars with Matthew McConaughey, I got uncomfortable hearing her awkward line delivery – her very obvious facial “work” was much less of my concern. In fact, although I knew her name and the general sex-appeal-connotation, Kim Novak is a bit before my time. I had to do a quick Google search to confirm her Glamazon history. Twitter can be a particular kind of cruel to public figures – as ... Read More

Aw. Though it would be nice if Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could host everything, this is still set to be a delight. Basically because Ellen is pretty much ... Read More
There has been a whole lot of buzz since Sunday night’s Oscars. Several websites, interviews, and news sources have expressed outrage over Seth MacFarlane’s sexist comments and his now infamous boob song. (Thanks Seth, I can’t get that stupid, douchey song out of my head.) I guess he made his point if everyone can’t stop talking about him. But one of the most outrageous scandals from the Oscars is the infamous Onion tweet calling the cutest ... Read More
