Thanks to Transparent‘s Golden Globe win for Best Comedy, Glee‘s exploration of Coach Bieste’s gender transition in its final season, and Orange Is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox’s Hollywood domination, transgender visibility in pop culture is more prominent than ever.
It’s always great to watch our favorite celebrities let loose at the SAG Awards. But when actors like Amanda Peet, Gwendoline Christie, and basically the entire cast of Orange Is the New Black make horrendous fashion choices, it lessens the blow of not being cool enough to hang out with them at the star-studded event.
Laverne Cox, Kevin Hart, and Shonda Rhimes react to the Ferguson decision, Halle Berry goes extra lengths to ensure Gabriel Aubry won’t change their daughter’s appearance, Bette Midler slams a young pop star, and more of today’s First Dibs.
While many fans spent the summer taking time off, these actors worked their asses off to stand out from the crop of blockbuster films and reality TV, delivering something fun, fresh, and exciting. Not only were their projects hits in their own right, the actors themselves were breakouts and proved to be ones to watch for the rest of the year. From Obvious Child‘s Jenny Slate to Billy Eichner, check out our picks for the biggest ones to watch come fall.
Get your snacks and caffeinated beverages ready: Orange Is The New Black‘s second season is officially here! The Netflix original we and so many others became obsessed with last summer is back, bringing more from inside our favorite fictional women’s prison. Season 1 may have ended during the joyous holiday season, but the last time we saw Piper (Taylor Schilling) things weren’t so pretty: she was left out in the cold with hands stained by the blood of Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning). In other words, this can’t be good for her chances at a wedding.
Gwyneth Paltrow is moving even further away from planet Earth thanks to her latest public comments. The woman who’s previously endorsed clean eating and a luxurious (if not unattainable) lifestyle, is now concerned about how “negativity” can affect your drinking water.
It’s here! It’s finally here. The new trailer for Netflix’s hit series, Orange Is the New Black, hit the Internet today and teases a whole bunch of drama for season 2. While there has been a lot of drama leading up to the second season (is Laura Prepon returning? Who are the new inmates?) none of that matters now. All we care about is the first official look at the show, which promises to surpass the addictive nature of the debut season.
