  • Hayden Panettier wore a Tom Ford dress that she purchased herself to the Golden Globes, GUH-ROSS!, but Tom Ford is cool with it. PHEW! PS: Nashville is back toniiiight! -Dlisted
  • Jordan Belfort is lying when he talks about not profiting from The Wolf of Wall Street, if you can even believe it. -FilmDrunk
  • An oral history of Hoop Dreams. -TheDissolve

  1. I don’t care whether you like Girls or not, but lol at anyone calling her the New Queen of Comedy.

    “Fuck you.” – literally dozens of established actual female comics

  2. I don’t know, Kelly. Sure, the comments are mean, uninspired and reactionary but you can’t argue with iron-clad logic like, “In conclusion: this is dumb.”

  3. Ugh, I hate hearing about who’s on the cover of the new Vogue because it just reminds me that I have a stack of like 10 of them I haven’t looked at yet taking up space in my apartment.

  4. While I don’t get the hype about Lena Dunham in general, I do like this quote:

    “Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you’ve ever met. Critics said, ‘That guy wouldn’t date that girl!’ It’s like, ‘Have you been out on the street lately?’ Everyone dates everyone, for lots of reasons we can’t understand. Sexuality isn’t a perfect puzzle, like, ‘He has a nice nose and she has a nice nose! She’s got great breasts and he’s got great calves! And so they’re going to live happily ever after in a house that was purchased with their modeling money!’ It’s a complicated thing. I want people ultimately, even if they’re disturbed by certain moments, to feel bolstered and normalized by the sex that’s on the show.”

    It is funny how people are so weirded out by things on TV that are considered totally normal in real life.

  5. I read the Lena Dunham piece and I kinda liked it. I’ve always felt neutral about Dunham herself but honestly this has made me like her a smidge more. Where would any of us be without connections? I mean even my current job I got through family connections (we’re not rich or influential or anything like that, both my parents are teachers). I wouldn’t have gotten my foot in the door without those connections but it was me who secured the job. I may not be the best damn editor in the world but I’m here and I’m making the most of it. Likewise Dunham is definitely not the greatest female comedic mind of my generation, but she is somewhat talented and she is making things happen so haters can go fuck themselves. I’d much rather have Girls on television (as insufferable as it is at times), than more shows like Duck Dynasty or Two and a Half Men.

    Also, after watching Frances Ha, I can’t keep thinking Greta Gerwig would be a fantastic edition to the show.
