-Also, I love Vulture but their incessant Gilmore Girls tweets this weekend almost made me unfollow them.

-No, Scarlett Johansson. You’re not allowed to call for more diversity in Hollywood while promoting your lead role in Ghost In The Machine. That’s not how this works.

-This is an excellent and thought-provoking discussion on whether or not it’s still ok to want to see Birth of a Nation. Personally, I no longer have much interest, but on the flip side, I think it’s ridiculous that Oscar voters are refusing to see it. That’s like a critic refusing to review it.
