When I first realized Donald Trump's inauguration would occur on the second day of the Sundance Film Festival, I felt relief. An Inconvenient Sequel is Al Gore's follow-up to An Inconvenient Truth, the Oscar-winning documentary that in 2006 electrified the debate surrounding climate change. Truth, a showcase for Gore's PowerPoint lectures about the horrors of global warming, was an exercise in apprehension. Fictional Jessica is an aspiring New York playwright with a progressive worldview that implicitly opposes much of Trump's rhetoric.
Judd said deciding how to navigate family relationships is going to be a challenge in years to come under the Trump administration. For now, Judd said, she is trying to be strong and yet give herself permission to be vulnerable at the same time. You voted for someone who calls his wife a piece of ass, whose daughter is his favorite sex symbol. It really boils down, to me, to the sexual assault and misogyny piece.
The vanity card at the end of Thursday night's episode of The Big Bang Theory was no bazinga. I know whatever he wrote, his heart's in the right place, said Galecki. While Galecki makes solid points, the comment that other people would do it better is debatable. After all, with everything going on in the world, it'd be pretty great to hear the Soft Kitty song right about now.
Along the way, Tamblyn -- a long-time and very involved feminist -- said she was shocked at how women are perceived and the limits placed on them. There's really only one definition that's available and allowed for women in order to be in positions of power. They're compared to men, Tamblyn said. Right now, the best answer is for people -- and for women in particular -- to latch onto any anger they're feeling in this present moment and to try and channel it productively.
Amazon.com Inc raised eyebrows when it paid $10 million for the North American distribution rights to Sundance drama Manchester By the Sea last year. Netflix Inc had four documentaries in previous Oscar races, but has yet to win the coveted accolade. An Oscar would be really great for the filmmakers, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in an interview. We acquired films ahead of Sundance so that we could really showcase them at the festival, Sarandos said.
A little rain didn't stop Floyd Mayweather Jr from attending President Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday. With earnings of roughly $700 million during his 19-year career, Mayweather is the wealthiest boxer of all time -- and a natural fit for an inauguration honoring the wealthiest president of all time. Barack Obama was a good president and hopefully Donald Trump will be a good president, the former boxer told TMZ in November.
On inauguration eve, a different man of wealth was feted at MoMA, at a special screening of Becoming Warren Buffett. A warts and all portrait, Becoming Warren Buffett, provides a candid view of his home life, his early marriage to Susie. In Susie's spirit, Buffett has given much of his money to Bill and Melinda Gates for their philanthropic work. A man of social conscience, Buffett saw racial inequality and admired Martin Luther King.
Local families hold rights to these lands under The Kuleana Act of 1850 and can legally enter Zuckerberg's estate to reach their parcels. Defendants listed on the complaint were given 20 days to respond once they are served with a copy. These so-called kuleana lands are automatically passed down to the heirs of the first owner, often without documentation, according to the Star-Advertiser. As descendants' families grow over time, each person's stake in the inherited land shrinks, often to a just a small percentage.
The man who turned a popular California hamburger stand into the McDonald's global fast-food empire is having a posthumous Hollywood moment. Kroc, who died in 1984, convinced Richard and Maurice McDonald to let him franchise their clean, quick-service restaurants that helped end the US carhop era. He then wrested so much control over the brand that the brothers agreed to be bought out in 1961 for $2.7 million.
We've talked about rose gold hair, unicorn hair and hidden rainbow hair, but there's a new trend on the rise and it's blorange hair. Over a year ago, model Georgia May Jagger dabbled in blorange hair dye, and now it seems like the trend is back and stronger than ever.
Everything seemed to proceed rather innocuously. We're all still here, but that doesn't say anything for the unsettling unknown still to come. At HuffPost Comedy, we like to stay relevant and avoid appearing tone-deaf but, also, the funny doesn't stop here.
Amanda Seyfried is gearing up for a big year in more ways than one. The actress is planning a wedding with fiance Thomas Sadoski and the couple is expecting their first child together. In her cover interview for Vogue Australia's February issue, Seyfried said, I've never been excited by anything more in my life. I went to the Met Gala last year in a wedding gown designed by Riccardo Tisci; I've played a bride a billion times.
