Leslie Knope is proof that there is room for driven women on TV. She's complicated, strange and charming, and, despite her superhuman ability to get by on three and a half hours of sleep, she feels very real, and what better example for women is that?
Stilettos, red carpet award shows, black tie events and women wondering, "How long do I have to keep these damn heels on!" That is every woman's battl...
These are just this weekend's examples of men having a hard time-sharing culture. Sounds an awful lot like my 3-year-old brother, who used to chant, "Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!!!"
While I realize that movie and television stars are people who get nervous speaking in public just like many of us, they had weeks between the nominations and the awards to get their presentations together.
The Golden Globes are probably the most light-hearted of the major motion picture or television kudos. So we've come to expect less poignancy from winners at this show than compared to the Academy Awards.

Jim O'Heir's latest side project is a hilarious little gem called Little Knockers, which sees him playing Bruce Kilmer, an alcoholic, victory-obsessed head coach of a pee-wee football team.
In 1899, theatre critic Edwin Royle wrote, "Vaudeville may be a kind of lunch-counter art, but then art is so vague and lunch is so real." Fast forward to 2013 where vaudeville is very much alive and well in Madonnalogues.
The fact that pregnant women are running, rapping, dancing, giving speeches and wielding paint brushes on top of step ladders helps to put to rest the enduring sexist notion that pregnancy is a malady, weakness or condition.
Stars of A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce) lit up the red carpet for the Los Angeles film premier powered by CIROC.
This kind of talent clearly comes from spending lots time in front or a mirror or up in the attic -- where fooling around or perhaps just trying to make yourself laugh becomes inspiration.
It was an unfortunate case of quantity over quality during my first day at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. While I saw six films, there were only a couple I could heartily recommend.
Why not look on the bright side? If the new Batman has one thing going for him, it's Ben Affleck's Boston roots. Think about it. What could possibly be more powerful than a superhero weaned on Legal Seafood clam chowder and Dunkin' Donuts dark roast?
Sometimes, I don't feel motherly enough, childless enough, married enough, single enough or career-driven enough to meet up with someone that I haven't seen in awhile.
The funny woman wields humor in such a way as to remove one gag (through her refusal of silence), even as she makes another -- a joke. Thus, she simultaneously resists shutting down and shutting up.
Warners loses a Jason and gains a Chris (Nolan)... Owen Wilson's a turkey; Woody Harrelson's a hawk... Essential Archer item becomes real... Direct from the lavish Cinefantastique Online studios, I bring you up to date on what's happening in genre film.
