I’ve seen most of the nominated films, watched the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, and now the pressure is on for The Academy Awards on Sunday. This year’s nominees are filled with phenomenal women with diverse ages, looks, and levels of experience in the business. The category that is perhaps the most conflicting for me is Best Actress. Who do we root for: 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, 86 year old Emmanuelle Riva, up-and-comer Jennifer Lawrence, Bin Laden headhunter Jessica Chastain, or two-time nominee Naomi Watts?

Many of the ladies on this list broke musical barriers, fighting their way into arenas that were usually male-dominated, and their influence paved the way for some of this generation’s greatest performers.

I have totally and completely fallen in love with Adele, the Cockney-accented diva (or diva-to-be, as the already-celebrated songstress is only 23 years old). Though I am still mourning Whitney, I was giddy about how elegant Adele looked in her vintage-inspired dresses while winning  6 Grammys last night (including the coveted Album of the Year award for 21). My friend commented that Adele was channeling fellow foxy Brit Kate Winslet with her new blonde 'do, and I had to agree. She was f*cking fierce. Read More
