“If you want to run for Prime Minister, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too. Shave your armpits, don’t shave them, wear flats one day, heels the next. These things are so irrelevant and surface to what it is all really about, and I wish people wouldn’t get caught up in that. We want to empower women to do exactly what they want, to be true to themselves, to have the opportunities to develop.”

Meryl Streep, Cecil B. DeMille Award Speech at the 74th Golden Globes

Meryl Streep: forever classy, forever brilliant, forever effortlessly charming and witty. 

We should all aim to possess a fraction of the poise, class, kindness, and humility that she contains in her pinkie finger.

Latino actors are still ignored when it comes to leading roles in film in 2016.

The top 10 highest-grossing movies of 2016 share a few defining characteristics: talking animals, superheroes and almost no Latinos. Of those films, only one Latino actor played a Latino character: Jay Hernandez as the stoic and spiritual Chato “El Diablo” Santana in Suicide Squad. Hernandez’s character is one of several memorable supporting performances from Latino actors in 2016. Diego Luna in Star Wars: Rogue One and Gina Rodriguez in Deep Water Horizon also serve up some of the year’s standout performances in heavy-hitter ensemble casts. Read more.
