Huffington Post - 10 days
In our previous salutes to Black History Month, we’ve looked back to activists, pop culture icons and other barrier breakers of the past. Today, we’re focusing on the present ― the history that’s being made right now with this year’s increased numbers of nominees and winners of various screen awards. Many more people of color made the lists this year than in years past, and these include not just actors, but also directors, producers, writers and musicians. Here are some of the more outstanding names for baby name inspiration.

Huffington Post - 13 days
Thanks to Natalie Portman’s widely acclaimed portrayal of Jackie Kennedy in “Jackie,” we’ve been blessed with numerous red carpet sightings over the course of her second pregnancy. Portman previously seemed to take inspiration from Kennedy, giving us chic ‘60s vibes in long-sleeve gowns with big, bold details. But for an Oscars luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday, the 35-year-old went casual chic in flats and a belted black Topshop dress that was on sale for $30 before it sold out.  She looked absolutely radiant (and comfortable!) for the star-studded affair, which also reunited the impeccably dressed cast of “The Help.” Behold Octavia Spencer... Viola Davis in Bottega Veneta... ... and Emma Stone in Stella McCartney: In fact, there was a bevy of well-dressed celebs.

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Another Guy Making Oscar Predictions
Huffington Post - about 1 month
A week from today the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced, and I'd expect a few jaw-dropping omissions (Ryan Gosling?) and additions (Michael Keaton?) like every year. That said, I think we'll see less surprises this year than in years past (ie. La La will sing and dance to the tune of a lot of nods. I'll also say #oscarssowhite isn't going to happen this year. There's just too many amazing performances and films to pass over this year plus Cheryl Boone Isaacs totally revamped the Academy's voting process. Anyway, here I am writing down my Oscar predictions like everybody else in the world. Read on, and predict your own. Guess right on all, and win a pony!
