The Age Of Amy Adams
"What does the age of Amy Adams mean? In four of these five movies, she’s played a wife or girlfriend, and when she wasn’t doing that, she was playing a junior nun. 
And more to the point, if Adams wins this year, I hope she gets more recognition for roles where the primary stakes for her character aren’t her relationship with a man, or that in movies about relationships with men, the aspirations and ambitions of her character get to be primary sources of dramatic conflict.”
— Alyssa Rosenberg with the five things you need to know about the 2014 Academy Award nominations.

Why Seth MacFarlane’s joke about 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis was so gross.

They are the scraps of humor actual comics left on the table a decade earlier in their careers after they learned that playing to people’s dumbest, most stereotypical assumptions is not actually the same thing as joke-making. But the laziness of MacFarlane’s brand played particularly poorly at the Oscars given the movie industry’s very real problems with both women and derivativeness, in a celebration of what’s supposed to be Hollywood’s best, the things that the profits of things like The Avengers make it possible to keep in production.

Exactly why last night’s Oscars host was so terrible.

The insanity of Oscar fashion expections

Think Progress culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg marvels at the craziness of celebrity starvation diets to fit into Oscar dresses they could easily buy in another size:

We’ve been hearing for years about how designers refuse to dress Christina Hendricks, who is one of the most attractive women on the planet, because she doesn’t fit their sample sizes. And we should be really clear that such a decision reveals not the Christina Hendricks is too big, but that designers are crazy people. The only people who are crazier are the stylists and actors (and honestly the rest of us) who, despite the fact that such a worldview is demonstrably bonkers, acquiesce to it.
