Even if you didn’t watch the Golden Globes last night, stories and photos from the awards ceremony are probably dominating your newsfeed right now. And with all the headlines, it can be hard to dig out the important (Meryl Streep criticized Donald Trump in a speech and he, of course, sent out an early-morning tweetstorm about it) from the unimportant (Kendall and Kylie ate pizza at an afterparty). We’ve rounded up the things that we at BUST HQ are talking about the most. Tell us...
We were already incredibly excited for Hulu’s upcoming miniseries adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s all-too-relevant dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale. In the 1985 sci-fi novel, a totalitarian government forces women to live in strict roles. Most women are upper-class Wives and Daughters, or lower-class Handmaidens, who have to bear children for the Wives. (There are also Aunts, who train Handmaidens, and Marthas, who are servants.) In the Hulu adaptation, Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, with Orange Is The New Black favorite Samira Wiley as in...
 Samantha Bee, "shrill left-wing feminist," and Glenn Beck, the conservative commentator who once called Obama a racist, reside on very different sides of a divided political landscape. But on last night’s episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, the festively-dressed pair sat down to acknowledge their common ground because, in the words of Bee, “I think that our future is going to require a broad coalition of nonpartisan decency. It's not just individual people against Donald Trump, it's all of us against Trumpism." Beck has been showing...

This year sure has had its downsides — much-loved stars, like Prince and David Bowie, left us too soon; an old favorite meme, Pepe the Frog, was stolen and repurposed by white supremacists; and, well, you know the rest. One upside to 2016? The Netflix original series Stranger Things was released July 15. The show takes place in 1983 and stars a band of talented and adorable child actors, and it’s clear the creators were influenced by the masters of dark childhood adventures, Stephen King...
This weekend's Saturday Night Live Christmas episode featured a sketch in which Kate McKinnon appears as Hillary Clinton holding cue-cards a la Love Actually asking (or pleading for dear God) an elector, played by Cecily Strong, not to vote for Trump. The sketch was a warming portrayal of Clinton as concerned citizen attempting to level with the elector as cards read, “BUT I STILL CARE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY," “YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO VOTE FOR ME," "JUST VOTE FOR LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE.” She then presents...
Donald Trump's cabinet picks may seem like the worst possible stories in the news, but Ohio's state legislators are really giving Trump a run for his money. Just weeks after it was announced Texas would require funerals to be held for aborted fetuses, Ohio passed a law making abortion illegal after a heartbeat is detected in a fetus. On Monday, Samantha Bee fleshed out what is being called the strictest abortion law in the nation; especially given that a heartbeat can be detected as early as...
The Golden Globe nominations were announced yesterday, and we were excited to see so many women of color nominated for major awards. The TV category in particular celebrated talented women of color. Issa Rae (Insecure), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), and Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) are all up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy; Thandie Newton (Westworld) is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made For Television; and Kerry Washington...
In Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the final four words were revealed, leaving many fans shocked. The fact that Rory, who had relied on making plans and to-do lists throughout much of the series, had accidentally gotten pregnant was, after all, very shocking. While many clues pointing to Rory’s pregnancy have since surfaced, it seems that fans of the show may have missed the most obvious clue of Rory’s pregnancy. Spoiler alert, it has to do with coffee. During the episode “Fall," Christopher Hayden...
If you’ve heard of Mozart In The Jungle, chances are you might have first heard of it not quite a year ago when the Amazon series took home two Golden Globes — big ones. Winning Best Television Series — Comedy and Best Actor In A Television Series — Musical Or Comedy for star Gael Garcia Bernal, the wins sparked explainer headlines like “What Is Golden Globe Winner Mozart In The Jungle All About?” “What Is ‘Mozart In The Jungle’ And Why Did It Win A...
  On last night’s episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Bee again showed off her skills in unpacking an issue with clarity, attention-to-detail and searing wit, evocative of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight takedowns. Samantha Bee this week turned her attention to “The Big Lie” of widespread illegal voting, which the President-Elect’s fragile ego has continued to push, despite winning the election, to account for losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. As Bee points out, this “threat” of illegal aliens stealing votes was not invented by...
