Jill Soloway is starting a revolution—and from the looks of last night's Golden Globes, she's totally nailing it: Transparent took home a well-deserved award for Best TV Comedy or Musical Series. Though the category was pleasantly packed with feminist fare (four of the five programs nominated center around women!) we were thrilled to see Soloway's show come out ahead. Read More
We'll give you a second to mentally process this idea before you scroll down to the image. Take it all in: you're about to see Steve Buscemi look like a babe. We're not saying there isn't a certain sexiness to him now, but Buscemi is more of an acquired taste than a generic hottie at this point. Just wait.

  In honor of Portlandia’s 5th season premiere tonight (and for having our favorite feminist bookstore owners, Toni and Candace, kick things off with what's sure to be hilarious sketch) we pulled together a round-up of  top moments from past seasons.

Last week, Sean Hannity went on his show on Fox News to discuss the meeting between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and rapper/mogul/husband to Beyonce, Jay Z. Strangely enough, Hannity doesn’t introduce Jay Z how we would best know him, but as “A guy that admits that he sold crack and was a drug dealer and actually shot somebody." Luckily, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams exist to call out Hannity on his bullshit — and they did just that in last night's episode. Read More
