Terry’s Picks: December 9, 2013


GEARING UP FOR: our biggest awards yet! The 2013 Muse Awards will be hosted by friends and TV stars Andy Cohen & Wendy Williams, and will honor actors Ellen Barkin, Connie Britton, and Robin Wright, actor and writer Sonia Manzano, Bravo and Oxygen Media President Frances Berwick, and director, producer, and writer Nancy Malone. Stay tuned all week for in-depth coverage of our honorees!

IN TOTAL AGREEMENT WITH: Kathryn Funkhouser’s article in The Atlantic, which wants Hollywood to finally recognize that audiences will pay to see a female superhero film.

EXCITED FOR: Haifaa al-Mansour’s win at the National Board of Review. Her film Wadjda won the Freedom of Expression award and is also the first feature ever to be made in Saudi Arabia.
