It's Not Love, It's Red-Eye

On Monday, Mindy Kaling turned 40 and celebrated by posting a lot on Instagram and also having a birthday dinner. B.J. Novak, the godfather of her child and very close friend, was in attendance. During said event, a photo was taken of the two, prompting BuzzFeed (and others) to write a breathless blog post about how the look on B.J. Novak’s face is indicative of love.

Stop Talking About Nancy Meyers Kitchens, You Sexists

If you’ve ever ogled the counter space in the pornographically large kitchens of a Nancy Meyers movie, well, sorry to inform you that you’re sexist.

In a recent Q&A with Mindy Kaling at the PGA’s Produced By event, Meyers said that reviewers and journalists too often focus on thefamously ginormous Meyers kitchens from movies like It’s Complicated and Something’s Gotta Give in ways that they...

Late Night's Retrograde Views of Women in Comedy

Late Night's Retrograde Views of Women in Comedy

There are many dramatic moments in Late Night in which a character takes a stand. A too-demanding job is walked out on, a subordinate is coldly deemed inconsequential, fists are raised in the face of “white oppression.” And yet by the end of the film, it’s hard to know what exactly this movie is trying to say, despite the swooning music cues and tough-talking monologues that proliferate it, if...

Mindy Kaling Says Keep Shaming White Men in Hollywood About the Pay Gap, It's Working

Mindy Kaling said in an interview with Variety (at the Palisades Village opening gala in L.A.) that she’s seen “an enormous amount of change” in gender parity in Hollywood recently, which if true, is a nice development in an otherwise bad news cycle that is threatening to make me lose all faith in institutions.

The threat of getting called out and slapped with a discrimination lawsuit is a...
