    The Help Wins Big at the SAG Awards

    Check out this image of the cast of the Help winning best ensemble at the SAG Awards last night. I'm pretty sure we won't see that many women on a stage again at the same time winning an award (at least not this Oscar season.) Just take it in because it is beautiful.

    Octavia Spencer Rocks Her Golden Globe Press Conference

    Every time she opens her mouth I get more and more impressed with her. Favorite comment that she is happy living in her own skin and people should be proud of who you are. I love how she took off her shoes.

    The Golden Globe Nominations: The Women

    I like the Golden Globe show cause it's always goofy.  People drink, say funny stuff and you get TV and film people in one place.  People who are awards watchers don't take it too seriously because they have two different film categories -- comedy and drama -- which no other a...

    The Help Rises to Number One at the Box Office in Week Two

    The story with Hollywood movies is that films open big in their first weekend and then drop off precipitously in their second weekend as a film opening takes the box office crown. That is not the case with The Help. It is the second film this year -- the first being True Grit in January -- to rise to first place in its second week of release. (Box office experts also noted that The Blind Side, which this film is being compared to in terms of audience, budget and potential awards, also rose to number 1 after its initial release.) The film has also bested the recent August releases of Julie & Julia and Eat, Pray Love -- films with big stars...

    The Controversy Over The Help

    Cross Post: Going to See The Help at The White House by Carol Jenkins

    If not for an invitation from Michelle Obama (you know, her people emailed my people) I might have missed seeing The Help. But a request for my presence in the White House screening room was too enticing–not to mention singular– to turn down.

    Why The Help Matters

    After a long summer of superhero dudes and exploding machines, women are finally getting a one for our team. Actually, a second one. Remember Bridesmaids from May? Doesn't that seem sooo long ago? I don't want to complain too much (well, I do) but there have been multiple (I don't care to count...
