Simply put: blackface is unacceptable. Just don't do it. For those who say it's not about race, a thought exercise: what if a black man had dressed in "whiteface" as a white murder victim of a black defendant? Yes, you can imagine the FOX-fueled false equivalence hysteria from here.
I'm at war with loneliness, and loneliness is winning. I'm also in the super swanky SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills -- with beautiful people all around -- to see Oscar winners Diablo Cody and Octavia Spencer, and singer/dancer-with-the-stars turned movie star Julianne Hough.
Let me start by saying that I am not at all disappointed with my decision -- the ending was just as bizarre as advertized.

Most movies don't need to be remade, but some can be successful. Remember a film from last year titled True Grit? Well Footloose is not True Grit but it is enough fun to make the effort worthwhile.
Geez, Footloose sucked when it was a Kevin Bacon movie in 1984. Who thought remaking it, almost scene for scene and song for song, would improve it?

Is it just me or is this the most boring season thus far of Dancing With the Stars?
It's not surprising that the first two to go in this premiere week were comedian Jeffrey Ross and actor Ted McGinley, though it's somewhat unfortunate...
Good Morning America announced the show's season seven celebrity contestants. It appears DWTS producers have worked very hard to cover just about every major demographic base.
