Why Denzel Washington Could Make History with a Surprise Third Oscar Win

1 hour ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With a best actor nomination for his tour-de-force performance in Fences, Denzel Washington is on the verge of making history — again. 

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.

But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

While white dresses made a major mark on the red carpet last year, Alicia Vikander made sure everyone knew she was a fashion force to be reckoned with when she turned up at last year's awards show in a custom-made strapless Louis Vuitton number that made her look like a real-life princess -- Belle, specifically -- even she saw the uncanny resemblance.

"That was my thought!" she told Et on the red carpet, after being told she was inspiring comparisons already.

To best understand the jubilation expressed over the new black “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay, one need only watch the pilot of HBO’s “Insecure.”

In one of television’s most comedic and honest exchanges to date, Molly  (Yvonne Orji) tearfully asks her best friend Issa (star and series creator Issa Rae) why no one has chosen to marry her. The question comes soon after Molly’s Asian-American coworker at her law firm gets engaged to a black man.

Is Haley Bennett Playing Catwoman In Gotham City Sirens?

5 February 2017 3:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One could argue that we still really haven’t had a great portrayal of Catwoman on the big screen. Halle Berry’s time with the iconic character is best forgotten, and while Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway both did some solid work, each of their performances had definite issues. Still, DC isn’t giving up on Selina Kyle and will attempt, once again, to bring her to life in Gotham City Sirens.

For those who don’t know, the David Ayer-helmed spinoff is reportedly set to feature Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. While Margot Robbie will return to reprise her role as the latter, after impressing in Suicide Squad, the other two characters haven’t been cast yet.

We’ve heard that Megan Fox might be in the running for Ivy, but rumors on the Catwoman role have been almost non-existent. Until recently, that is, as actresss Haley Bennett »
