The secret life of humans

True confession: I’m a Bette Midler fan. Wait! Stay with me for a moment I’m not referring to Midler’s sappy “Wind Beneath My Wings” phase. (I couldn’t get through her “Beaches” period without a shot of tequila, and even then it was difficult.) I mean the unpolished Midler of the New York City bathhouse days: Sophie Tucker jokes and outrageous costumes like giant hotdogs and mermaids performing choreographed routines in motorized wheelchairs. Irreverent. Unpredictable. Creative. Edgy. Simply put: Great fun! You can’t tell from looking at me that I will always carry a torch for that bawdy 1970s torch singer. Read More

The 25 Best Actresses Who Never Won An Oscar

The 25 Best Actresses Who Never Won An Oscar
BY TARA AQUINO | FEB 22, 2013

This is how we imagine the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science voters: a circle jerk of crusty board members, suited studio heads, and random Hollywood cogs who haven’t watched a single nominated movie all in a room arbitrarily putting ballots into a hat. Considering some of the questionable winners in Oscar history, we’re fairly certain this is accurate.

One major point of contention: Best (Leading or Supporting) Actress in a Motion Picture. You’d be surprised to see how many phenomenal actresses have yet to take home a trophy, if not already lost the chance of ever putting one on the mantle. Read More
