The new board members are as follows:

Bela Bajaria, who was named vice president of content at Netflix in November 2016 after spending five years as president of Universal Television.

Terry Curtin, who became the head of global theatrical PR for DreamWorks Animation last March. She has also held key marketing and communications positions at several Hollywood entertainment companies, including Stx Entertainment and Disney.

Nisha Ganatra, who garnered a Golden Globe win for her work as director/producer of the Amazon series “Transparent.” Her other directing credits include “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Mr. Robot,” and “Girls.”

Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lopez Says Roles Like “Selena” Are “Few and Far Between”

7 hours ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jennifer Lopez in “Selena

“It was a meaty role, but it was few and far between, especially for Latinos to have a role like that,” Jennifer Lopez recently told Variety, discussing her Golden Globe-nominated role in “Selena.” “I think it’s still challenging for women, especially being Latina. Thinking about ‘Selena’ 20 years ago and to have a role like that, I was very lucky. I was very fortunate. But it’s still a struggle for women.”

Lopez’s observation is spot-on. According to the 2016 Celluloid Ceiling Report by Dr. Martha M. Lauzen, Latinas only represented three percent of all female characters from the top 100 grossing films.

Released March 21, 1997, “Selena” is celebrating its twentieth anniversary. Gregory Nava’s biopic follows the “meteoric rise and murder of Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla-Pérez,” Variety summarizes.

Since that breakout performance, Lopez has enjoyed a meteoric rise of her own as an actress, producer, activist, and musical artist. But even as “one of the most influential Latino celebrities of all time,” as Variety describes her, Lopez has had more than her share of glass ceiling encounters. So, like many women, she decided to make her own dream jobs.

“At this point, you have to create your own opportunities,” the Un’s first-ever Global Advocate for Girls and Women told Variety. “I think it’s the second phase of your career — you kind of make a name for yourself and show everybody what you do and where your talents lay, and then you have to take it into your own hands and be the artist that you want to be. I think [the industry] is still moving and growing, and it’s always a challenge for women.”

Lopez currently stars as Harlee Santos on NBC’s “Shades of Blue.” The police drama co-starring Ray Liotta and Drea de Matteo was recently renewed for a third season. Her other recent credits include the films “Lila & Eve” and “The Boy Next Door.” Lopez will star in NBC’s “Bye Bye Birdie Live!” in December. She is also set to topline and exec produce HBO’s TV movie “The Cocaine Godmother.”

Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lopez Says Roles Like “Selena” Are “Few and Far Between” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

9 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The weight may come and go, but Lena Dunham just can’t win when it comes to her body.

After years of dealing with body shaming over her weight, the Girls writer and star is now getting attacked for slimming down.

“I was frustrated by it, because it really was evidence that as a woman in Hollywood, you just can’t win,” Dunham, 30, says on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “It’s just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like ‘bag of milk’ on the internet, baby cow, aging cow. »

Lena Dunham Talks Weight-Loss Criticism on 'Ellen': 'As a Woman in Hollywood, You Just Can't Win'

9 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lena Dunham is addressing her weight-loss haters.

The 30-year-old Girls creator stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, where she talked about being criticized for losing weight. Dunham admits she's "frustrated" by some people's response, especially since she was used to being called cruel things on the internet precisely because of her weight.

"It's just so crazy because I spent six years in my career being called things like 'bag of milk' on the internet ... and 'baby cow, aging cow' ... and I just never felt self-conscious about it," Dunham says. "Anybody that was going to take the time to say something negative about my weight on the internet wasn't someone I was going to particularly be keen to impress anyway."

Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres Give an Amazing Nurse the Surprise of Her Life

11 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Lena Dunham has always been open about her struggle with endometriosis, which landed her in the hospital twice. Her illness has had one silver lining, however: she was able to meet an incredibly kind, caring nurse named Jonnella, who helped her through everything. "Nurses are the real heroes of our society" the Girls creator told Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday. "She would make me laugh, we would watch videos, we would listen to Drake, we would giggle." Jonnella happens to be a huge fan of Ellen, so they not only surprised her with a FaceTime call but also airplane tickets for a trip out to La to watch the show in person for her birthday. Watch Jonnella's surprise above, but be careful - it just might bring a tear to your eye. »

Lena Dunham: I'm Not a "Hypocrite" Because I Lost Weight

13 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

 Lena Dunham's body is her business. When the Girls creator stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, she discussed the backlash she received over her appearance at a Tracy Anderson Method event last week. "You look fantastic. You look really good," host Ellen DeGeneres told the 30-year-old TV star. "You always look great, but I know that you got a lot of flack for losing weight, which is ridiculous." Dunham couldn't agree more. "It's just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like 'bag of milk' on the internet—'bag of milk,' 'baby cow,' 'aging cow.'

Which TV Show Is the Most Challenging to Write About? — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 March 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which show do you find the most difficult to write about and why? (This was inspired by a tweet by Alan Sepinwall.)

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Uproxx

First, I apologize to the other critics for sticking them with this question, though it’ll be a relief to hear if they have similar blind spots.

But for me… man, is writing about “The Americans” like pulling teeth, in the laundry room, with only some vodka for anesthetic. It’s a great show, and consistently near the top of my best-of lists each season, yet it can take me half a day or more to make significant headway on »

Lena Dunham Is Beyond Over Your Fashion Criticism

20 March 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lena Dunham is not here for the haters. Time and time again the triple threat writer-actor-director has made it abundantly clear that she could not care less what you think about her body, her life choices, her nudity on screen, or what she chooses to wear to her endless list of red carpet events. Yet nonetheless, all of the above continue to be topics people seize on and often use as fodder to pick her apart.

Thankfully, the Girls star seems to have an endless reserve of perfectly worded responses, a lesson Perez Hilton had to learn the hard way »

Girls season 6 episode 6 review: Full Disclosure

19 March 2017 11:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Matar Mar 20, 2017

Girls season 6 delivers another solid episode of major ups and downs. But mostly downs...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Fast & Furious 8, and cinema’s strangest family The forgotten casualties of the Fast & Furious franchise Fast & Furious 9 and 10 release dates confirmed

6.6. Full Disclosure

Girls is a show that’s very good at massively repositioning its characters abruptly yet believably. For example, in this final season, everything seemed to be coming up Hannah and then she suddenly got pregnant. The pregnancy itself isn’t so novel; shows have been throwing in pregnancies to insta-spice up drama since forever. But it’s cool how only an episode and a half ago, Hannah was feeling good about her decision to keep her baby, but, after running it by her friends, it now feels like Hannah’s world is crashing down around her.

It’s not as simple as “Hannah was »

Girls Season 6 Episode 6 Review: Full Disclosure

19 March 2017 10:49 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There was a lot to love about Girls Season 6 Episode 6, but I was particularly thrilled with the long overdue confrontations between Hannah and (separately) Jessa and Adam.

In other good news, Elijah may have finally found an actual storyline!

"Full Disclosure" was a fitting title on two levels. On a surface level, it's the title of Adam's movie about his relationship with Hannah, a movie which is increasingly becoming important in the lives and character arcs of Adam, Jessa, and now Hannah.

But beyond that, "Full Disclosure" was relevant because it's literally what Hannah did – she fully disclosed the status of her pregnancy (and the fact that she's keeping the baby) to nearly all of the most important characters on the show, including her dad (and his partner Keith), Marnie, Adam, and Jessa.

At this point, the only two main characters who probably don't know are Ray and Shoshanna »

‘Girls’ Review: Hannah Finally Confronts Her Future While Erasing Her Past

Last Week’S Review: Adam Makes His Movie As Hannah’s Life Goes Off Script

[Spoilers follow for “Girls” Season 6, Episode 6, “Full Disclosure.”]

Love Her or Hate Her

Love, with one mild caveat. While it’s been fresh to see so much sudden character growth and maturity from Hannah this season, the reveal that she has no interest in even trying to contact her unborn child’s father is a controversial one. Yes, Paul-Louis has a girlfriend. But does he have the right to know that the girl he had a fling with is having his baby? There are certainly two opinions on the subject, and almost everyone that Hannah shared her news with on Sunday night fell into the camp of the father having the right to know. The only advocate for Hannah’s decision to exclude Paul-Louis was her father, but then again Tad has always been something of a pushover for his daughter and hates rocking the boat. »

The Performance | As mischievous sidekick Lenny on FX’s mind-bending superhero drama Legion, Plaza often taps into that rich vein of cynical sarcasm that served her so well as April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation. But when Legion switched gears this week, it allowed Plaza to show off a whole new side to Lenny. (Two or three sides, really.)
