EVEN OSCAR NOMINATED MOVIES LACK IMPORTANT FEMALE CHARACTERS

And now, something for our feminist readers…have you heard of The Bechdel Test for Women in Movies? This video test examines the 2011 Oscar nominated movies to see how they measure up in regard to women’s representation in film. It’s quite startling how far women have NOT come in regard to relevance in films in spite of the fact that they make up way more than half of the movie-going audience. The intro in the video is a bit tedious but hang in there – the results are disturbing.

    Sounds like the carping of a bitter woman. Plenty of female characters are in important movies. The complainers want more lesbians out there spouting their hate and the public doesn’t. Very simple. Sounds like a bandwagon developing for Hillary, the true lesbian of the year.

    Most movies are totally geared towards Women. That ‘Twilight’ garbage, ‘Titanic’ etc. All for young women to blow their parent’s cash on.

    SO WHAT. What’s the point? Who cares? It is of no importance how many “female characters” are in the movies. Are we women really so weak of mind that we need to validated by hollywood? really?

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
