Eva Mendes Shows Ryan Gosling Some Love After Sweet Golden Globes Speech
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Eva Mendes might have skipped the 2017 Golden Globes, but her presence was certainly felt during Ryan Gosling’s touching acceptance speech. The “La La Land” actor, who picked up his first Golden Globe on Sunday, declared his love for his “lady” at the awards ceremony. Now, Mendes, who typically shies away from publicly discussing her relationship with Gosling, has addressed the buzzy Globes moment in a short and sweet Instagram post.  On Monday, the actress shared a photo of Janelle Monae’s out-of-this-world look on the red carpet, subtly saving her appreciation for Gosling in the caption.  “Obviously this wasn’t my favorite moment of the night,” she began. “But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night. The stunning and talented [Monae] is killing me with this look,” Mendes continued. Obviously this wasn't my favorite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night. The stunning and talented @janellemonae i ...

Ryan Gosling Has Figured Out Why He's Your Imaginary Boyfriend
Huffington Post - 2 months
There are plenty of reasons why Ryan Gosling has become the Internet’s collective boyfriend:  1. He lives up to his Feminist Ryan Gosling mystique and really wants a woman to be POTUS as soon as possible.  2. He can tap and waltz like a freaking modern-day Fred Astaire.  3. He’s a doting dad to two daughters and is clearly in love with Eva Mendes. (He’s said that he “lives with angels.” D’aww.)  4. He looks like this:  We could go on. But if you were to ask Gosling himself, he’d tell you he’s prime boyfriend material for one reason: “My Canadianness.”  “I think it’s part of, um, America just finally realizing that there’s a place called Canada,” the 36-actor said when asked about his appeal in GQ’s January issue. “That it’s nearby. And the people there are, you know, different but the same. And not just America’s hat. We have free health care, education.”  The actor goes onto say that he’s not that special, citing the Internet’s other i ...

The Best And Worst Moments Of The 2016 Golden Globes
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Last year, our Golden Globes recap started by saying how great the telecast was. This year's will not begin that way. Sunday's award show was long, tedious, odd and dull. Where were the fun drunk speeches? The galvanizing left-field wins that don't involve Mozart? The peculiar celeb interactions we'll be talking about for the next week? Well, OK, there were a few of those -- but it was mostly lame anyway. Here are some highs and lows. WORST: Ricky Gervais' first words were "Shut up." WORST: When the crowd booed a joke, Ricky Gervais responded by saying, "Shut up, I don't care!" BEST: Rachel Bloom gave an unfiltered acceptance speech about how "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" almost didn't exist. No one else showed as much charming, unbridled emotion.  BEST: While awkwardly presenting the award for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, Jaimie Alexander reacted to a teleprompter glitch by saying, "Who's typing this sh*t?"  WORST: So man ...

America Ferrera And Eva Longoria Call Out Hollywood Racism
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The two women pictured above are, duh, Eva Longoria and America Ferrera. Because history has proven some might need a little reminder of the fact, the actresses clarified that they are not, in fact, Gina Rodriguez and Eva Mendes while presenting the Best Actor in a TV Drama award at the Golden Globes Sunday night. As Vine user Kate Aurthur captioned her clip above, the bit was "perfect and damning," concisely calling out Hollywood's tendency to treat non-white stars as interchangeable. Back in December, the Golden Globes published a tweet misidentifying Ferrera as Rodriguez while announcing 2016's presenters, which Rodriguez later opened up about to Entertainment Tonight.  "I didn't hear anything until recently someone sent me an article, but who cares?" Rodriguez said. The "Jane the Virgin" actress was nominated this year for Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical; an award that she won in 2015. "America's lovely," she added. "She's so beautif ...
