    The Oscars Should Be More Like The Golden Globes

    The recent Golden Globes telecast was so rivetingly entertaining that the Oscars need to do exactly what they did in order to approach watchability on February 24. IMHO, they should: *Tell Seth MacFarlane that he will now have two cohosts--Tina and Amy. They were brilliantly wry and need to be ad ... More >>

    One More Thought About Jodie Foster's Speech

    I've already ignited a hailstorm of pro and con arguments with my simple statement that Jodie Foster should have said "Yep, I'm gay" rather than the defiant apologia she gave for the celebrity closet the other night at the Golden Globes. So let me just add one more thing. A friend of mine said it ... More >>

    Lena Dunham's Style: Does It Need Fixing?

    HBO's girlie-ensemble shows are great at giving sex symbol status to those who might not otherwise attain that. (Sex and the City, anyone?) And on Girls, Lena Dunham is a refreshing new lady star--a natural looking, offbeat but cute gal who attracts the guys on the show, and who's not afraid to rol ... More >>

    Jodie Foster's Coming Out Speech: My Thoughts

    On tonight's Golden Globes awards, special honoree Jodie Foster gave the most defiant almost-coming-out speech I've ever heard. It was sort of a coming out mixed with an apologia for not coming out combined with an explanation that she supposedly has long been out (at least to everyone around her), ... More >>

    Beasts of the Southern Wild Ups Its Oscar Push

    The little film that could, Beasts of the Southern Wild, has captivated critics and audiences with its audacious, raggedy, beautiful look at a New Orleans girl and her daddy surviving the elements as melting icecaps flood the bayou.

    "Best Movie Of The Year"? I Saw It At Film Forum!

    Roger Ebert called the Iranian melodrama A Separation "the best film of the year." What's more, it won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film and it's nominated for two Oscars. And it's indeed remarkable -- a far cry from slick, bloated, soulless Hollywood fare.
