Grammys 2018

So. The Grammys happened today. One year after they did Beyoncé so wrong, this was their chance to make things right. Their chance to make us re-evaluate our collective opinion that the Recording Academy was a completely useless bunch of disconnected-from-reality losers who couldn’t reward the right person with the right award if the person literally snatched their damn scalps off and the universe demanded it. This was their chance to remind us of any remote social currency they still held in 2018. Their chance to take a step into 2018 and make a concerted…

Week That Was (Jan 22 – Jan 28)

This week gave us both an awards show AND some nominations so I was a happy lady for the most part. Sure there were some disappointments (can’t win ’em all) but there were also some major happy surprises. Duh, the Oscar nominations were announced, by the delightful Tiffany Haddish! She is so damn charming and hilarious, she actually made these usually boring announcements entertaining. That is no mean feat. I want her to host an awards show now. Now, let’s recap the nominations – Get Out was nominated for four massive awards – Screenwriting, Directing…

The 75th Golden Globe Awards

I mean. Where to start on these Golden Globes? There’s a lot to unpack here. A LOT. And I’m not qualified or worthy to do so, but as will come as no surprise to anybody, I had some feelings and thoughts about everything that happened. I’ve tried my best to discuss it all at length throughout the day, as much as I can, in order to make sense of all these muddled thoughts and conflicting emotions and indignant stances that I have but I’m not sure if I’ll ever get…

Week That Was (Dec 11 – Dec 18)

Just a quickie this week! Some dummies, some snubs, some saving graces. I guess life is about balance. First up – PROFESSIONAL WASTE OF BREATH, MANSPLAINER MATT DAMON! Now those of us who have been paying attention know that Matt has been problematic af since he interrupted successful black female producer Effie Brown to explain diversity to her, but he’s done it again and maybe this time he won’t get another pass? I don’t know why he’s so lauded as such a nice guy, he’s a white-mansplaining dick and…

69th Emmy Awards

You may have seen my “Week That Was” post earlier this week where I anguished about the Emmys, lamenting how many times they have gotten their awards wrong before. And sure, there were some shockers (6 WINS FOR JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS IN VEEP, REALLY?), but I was astonished tonight to see so many categories won by the right people/series. ASS-TON-ISHED. Without further ado, read on for an Emmys wrap-up in three parts: As-Wrong-As-RPDR-Losing-To-The-Voice; As-Right-As-RuPaul-Winning-Oustanding-Host-Of-A-Reality-Series; and The Moments…

Met Gala 2017: Highs, Lows, and those who didn’t bother

Really, was there even a theme last night? YES, THERE WAS, AND IT WAS AVANT-FUCKING-GARDE WHICH MOST OF THESE PEOPLE SEEMED TO HAVE TOTALLY SKIPPED WHEN READING THEIR INVITATIONS. Sure, there were some (obvious) standouts and some pretty gowns that would have been wonderful at literally any other red carpet event, but it’s the MET goddammit, have some respect. So, yeah, you could say I have some ~feelings~ about the Met Gala. This is by no means a recap of alllll the outfits though (you can find them on, like, literally any other site), these are…

Oscars 2017: SCALPED

There’s no other way to describe it, I was scalped by these awards yesterday. Just like Janelle Monáe. Ask anyone in my office. I lost my DAMN mind. Sure, a lot of it was not positive (click here if you missed all the Fuck Shit), but the rest of it was damn near glorious. I remembered what pure joy felt like, and it was gooood. The Good Shit Mahershala Ali, Total God I shouldn’t need to tell you how devotedly I love Mahershala Ali. But in case you’re wondering, I do. I was…

Oscars 2017: Room For Improvement

WELL. That’s putting it mildly. I actually had to take the night to process all the feels I felt about yesterday’s Oscars. There is a LOT to unpack, I was on a damn rollercoaster of emotions until the LAST second, and I’m still coping with the grand finale. In order to cover everything I want to talk about and make sense of it all, I have divided the event into Fuck Shit and Good Shit. Let’s see how the tally holds by the end of it and get the fuck shit out…

Behold, The Queen

I had a whole other post written, recapped as I watched The Grammys, but then Album Of The Year was announced and I realised, again, that it was a load of fucking bullshit and they don’t deserve any words. Instead, I want to revisit every moment of Her glory today. And for the record, others have said and will continue to say it better than I ever could, so. Finally, no hate to Adele. In fact, I called it months ago, that she would give up AOTY if she won it over Bey. Watch her do just that…

Golden Globes: The Show

Welcome back for round 2 of Golden Globes coverage! The show itself was not the most exciting of all time and Fallon certainly left a lot to be desired as host, but it did have it’s moments! And – surprise, surprise! I had a lot of thoughts as I watched. The “Tell Me When It’s Over” Moments The pre-show reel was boring as fuck. But in a bland, inoffensive way – until it became all about Justin Timberlake and his bromance with Jimmy Fallon. Then it became straight-up offensive. The teleprompter breaking…
