We're so close to declaring a winner for Alpha Male Madness 2017! Just four actors remain in the competition after a brutal round of (mostly) costar against costar, and whatever happens, it'll be a brand new fight to the finish. Two-time winner and Outlander star Sam Heughan is still in the game, but he's facing off against Supernatural's Misha Collins, Shameless' Noel Fisher, and The 100's Bob Morley. Heughan, Fisher, and Morley have all been in the lead since round one, but Collins is somewhat of an unexpected contender in this round, since his costar Jensen Ackles received more votes in every round except for the one where it counted. But that's in the past now, and we're »

Marielle Heller: Sundance Institute
Moms-in-Film (MiF), an organization for working parents in film and TV, is celebrating its first anniversary by honoring “Diary of a Teenage Girl” writer-director Marielle Heller. Heller will receive the inaugural Moms-in-Film Award tonight, the organization announced in a press release.
Heller will be celebrated in a ceremony at The Players Club in New York. Director Ana Asensio (“Most Beautiful Island”) and actress Emily Bergl (“Shameless”) will be among the event’s speakers. Broadway star Kat Cunning (“Paramour,” “Les Liasons Dangereuses”) will provide the entertainment.
MiF fights for “the rights of working parents of all genders in the film and television industry,” by providing community, funding, and advocacy. The organization’s most recent initiative was arranging free childcare for filmmakers at SXSW this year.
The needs of working parents in Hollywood is something that Heller seems to be passionate about. When asked about the media’s treatment of working mothers in Hollywood versus working fathers, she told Vogue: “I definitely don’t think the answer is not asking those questions, pretending somehow that we’re not trying to juggle motherhood and directing. That’s been the position women directors have been in for the last 30 years.”
“It’s time for us to be more honest that we are in a more difficult position,” she continued. “The majority of parenting responsibility tends to fall onto women, whether or not we’re in wonderful equal partnerships. I think we can be more honest about what that looks like.”
Heller was nominated for a DGA Award for the Sundance hit “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” her directorial debut. Based on the graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, the film traces a young woman’s (Bel Powley, “Carrie Pilby”) sexual awakening as she embarks on an affair with her mother’s boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard, “Big Little Lies”). The film won Best First Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2016 and was nominated for Best First Screenplay.
Among Heller’s other credits are episodes of “Casual” and “Transparent.” She is currently filming the Melissa McCarthy-starrer “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” The dark comedy is an adaptation of celebrity profile writer Lee Israel’s memoir. Next, Heller is set to write and direct “Kolma,” a fantasy thriller led by “The Force Awakens’” Daisy Ridley, and a feature based on HBO’s award-winning gay rights doc “The Case Against 8.”

Image Source: Everett Collection That gem of a lady above is Lane Kim, Rory's icon of a best friend in Gilmore Girls. She's played by Keiko Agena, who has gone on to appear in various TV shows like Shameless. Honestly, she'll always be Lane to me, which may be why I didn't register that she was in 13 Reasons Why until I was browsing the cast list on IMDb. I was already several episodes deep in the new show, which is why it was so embarrassing and also so mind-blowing. Here's the thing: at 43(!) years old, Agena is youthful Af, and the idea that she would be playing a teacher just didn't occur to me. She also has bangs and no signature Lane Kim glasses. Here she is as Mrs. Bradley, one of the teachers in the show: Image Source: Netflix I respect it, but I don't know if I like it. »

In an article for Elle, “Good Girls Revolt” alumna Genevieve Angelson writes about an aspect of the gender pay gap that doesn’t get much attention: There is a stigma surrounding any and all discussions about money. “Polite” people — especially polite women — do not ask about other people’s salaries. Even if it is about equal pay. Even if they are talking to their closest friends.
“I don’t know if I’m paid equally to my male colleagues,” Angelson states simply in her piece. “My desire to fight for gender equality is matched only by how uncomfortable I feel asking the actor next to me how much he or she is getting paid. I’d sooner ask someone if he had a painful childhood.”
Angelson admits the reason for her reluctance is “that age-old character defect that kept my foremothers in bondage: I want people to like me.”
The actress found it hard to break this barrier even on “Good Girls Revolt,” Dana Calvo’s Amazon series about professional women in the ’60s fighting for equality in the workplace. Angelson, who portrayed the free-spirited Patti Robinson, reveals, “Even while shooting a scene on ‘Good Girls Revolt’ in which women discovered their male colleagues earned three times their salaries, we did not discuss our earnings on that job.”
Going into detail about how Hollywood pay is based on a given actor’s “quotes” — a complicated metric informed by the jobs they’ve had, jobs they are up for, how much they’ve earned in the past, and how much their representation is lobbying for — Angelson uses Emmy Rossum’s fight for equal pay on “Shameless” as an example.
“When [Rossum] signed her contracts for ‘Shameless,’ her lesser salary compared to her male costar was the result of less time building her quote rather than a slight against her gender. Nonetheless, the jobs those actors performed on set were arguably the same and Rossum may have attracted as much revenue for the show as her male co-lead. As seasons passed, why shouldn’t she be compensated equally for equal services rendered? Not to mention, There Are Fewer Jobs Written For Women, Especially Older Women, Especially Women Of Color, and so fewer opportunities to build a quote. In Hollywood, this is the true gender inequality problem.”
Here Angelson briefly touches upon how especially difficult it is for women of color to fight for and receive equal pay. Bustle wrote about this double bind on Equal Pay Day: “Women of color in Hollywood not only have to fight to be paid equally, but they also have to fight to be seen, heard, and chosen. Speaking up about a pay disparity doesn’t go over as lightly for black and brown women as it seems to for white women,” the source emphasizes.
The article continues that, since feminism is synonymous with white women, white women are “expected to complain or bring attention to injustices plaguing women. Conversely, more often than not, if black and brown women practice that same feminism, they’re more likely to be seen as ungrateful, difficult to work with, or worse, angry.”
Bustle then cites Oscar-winner Mo’Nique’s experience in Hollywood. The actress has been shunned ever since she spoke out about her low pay — just $50,000 — for “Precious,” for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2010. “She saw the disparity and reported it. But instead of being supported in the fight, Mo’Nique was reportedly told she didn’t ‘play the game’ properly. She was allegedly labeled as being ‘hard to work with.’ And, according to the actor, she was blackballed,” the source details.
A piece in Refinery29 adds, “Not only are Black women in Hollywood viewed as replaceable, but there doesn’t seem to be a strong investment in defending them with the same tenacity that was there when people rallied around Rossum and [Patricia] Arquette [who spoke in support of equal pay when she accepted her Oscar for ‘Boyhood’ in 2015]. When actresses like Mo’nique are blackballed for not being polite and gracious enough to producers and executives; when the press is largely silent about Jessica Williams being talked down to by Salma Hayek when speaking up about her unique experience as a Black woman.”
“Good Girls Revolt” aired for one season on Amazon before being cancelled, despite being the only Amazon series at the time with a solid female 18-to-49 following. “We were all so surprised because we were a hit,” Calvo commented after the show’s cancellation. “What we hadn’t factored in is that [Amazon Studios head] Roy Price just doesn’t care for the show.” “Good Girls Revolt” was shopped around to other networks but was unable to find another home.
You can catch Angelson next in “Untouchable,” an English-language remake of the French film “The Intouchables,” starring Nicole Kidman, Bryan Cranston, and Kevin Hart. “Backstrom,” “True Story,” and “House of Cards” are among Angelson’s other credits.

I think I speak for the entire Shameless fan community when I say that Debbie Gallagher is unequivocally the worst character on the show. We all know this. Even Emma Kenney herself knows this. Honestly there was nothing wrong with Debs before she hit puberty. I actually kind of liked her “caretaker” character when she was only a little girl. It’s an element that was needed on the show. Liam needed taking care of and it was always fun watching Debs as a 10-12 year old having to take on responsibilities as an adult. But now that she’s an adolescent/adult

Bones signs off on Tuesday, after 12 seasons of crime solving, evidence examining, blood, guts and, most importantly, bones. But at the core of the long-running Fox procedural -- the “heart of the matter,” if you will -- was a partnership between forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz).
From their first episode together, Brennan and Booth’s dynamic was electric, and while the will-they-or-won’t-they of it all took nearly seven seasons to sort out (more if you count that they don’t actually tie the knot until season nine), their relationship kept fans hooked for all 245 episodes. We watched Brennan wrestle with her feelings as Booth looked for love, saw them lay it all on the line only to yank it back again, and finally, at long last, got to witness their happy ending. Two kids and countless hurdles later, they’re still going strong.
So, as we »
