Choosing Joy By Choosing Salt Lake City
Huffington Post - 7 months
When most people think of their ideal place to live, they usually jump to big metropolises like New York or London. A few might picture rural retreats -- a sprawling French countryside or a California vineyard. My perfect place doesn't fall into either of those categories. My dream location (and the place I've made my home) is Salt Lake City, Utah. Believe me, I realize how strange that sounds. I didn't grow up in Utah, but I moved to SLC for undergrad simply for a scholarship and pretty campus close to the mountains. But no matter where I went after college, I had this nagging, unsettled feeling -- a feeling I never fully shook until I made it back to Salt Lake City years later. Coming back to this valley after being away felt like I was rediscovering a refuge I didn't know I'd lost. I could finally appreciate this city for what it is: a stunning, inimitable haven. If I could give all you readers searching for fulfillment a piece of advice, it'd be this: find a place th ...

We Finally Understand The Most Awkward Relationship On 'Modern Family'
Huffington Post - 9 months
Non-traditional relationships are standard fare on "Modern Family," a show that introduced basic cable to a May-December romance that blended three families across generational lines -- one including two fathers. Still, while the show's writers weave jokes out of the fabric of those relationships, they are careful to be sure none of their non-traditional pairings are actually cringeworthy. That is, except for one: Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) and Gloria Pritchett (Sofia Vergara).  Phil's step-mother-in-law, Gloria, and Phil's wife, Claire (Julie Bowen), are approximately the same age. And he's has been noticeably into to Gloria throughout the show, revealing his attraction in the manner of a teenager poisoned by hormones: through awkward social blunders.  "Phil had a hard time even just carrying on a conversation because he was so beguiled by her beauty," Burrell told The Huffington Post, comparing his character to "a fish seeing something shiny." Although Gloria appears oblivious, ...

2016 SAG Award Nominations Are Full Of Surprises, Including 'Trumbo' And 'Beasts Of No Nation'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
It's a big week for awards season: On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild unveiled the nominees for its annual awards, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is set to announce the Golden Globes shortlist the following morning. In a year with few clear front-runners, these awards will crystallize the Oscar derby that began in earnest around Labor Day and has grown increasingly murky ever since.  Or so one would think. Instead, the SAG Awards threw us even more curveballs. Purported pacesetter "Spotlight" received less attention than expected, with Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo left out of the supporting-actor field. "The Martian," "Joy" and "The Hateful Eight" came up empty-handed, and "Mad Max: Fury Road" only managed a stunt-ensemble nomination. Helen Mirren made off with two surprise nods, Sarah Silverman's dramatic indie "I Smile Back" scored Best Actress over the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Lily Tomlin, and "Straight Outta Compton" edged out hefty compe ...

Sofia Vergara Gushes About Her Perfect 'Fairy Tale' Wedding On 'Ellen'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Sofia Vergara, fresh off her honeymoon with new husband Joe Manganiello, visited "Ellen" on Thursday to dish about her "fairy tale" wedding.  The "Modern Family" star and "Magic Mike" actor wed last month in a lavish ceremony that followed a weekend-long celebration. It really was fit for a princess.  There were about 400 guests present for Vergara's big day -- her "family and closest friends," she said with a laugh -- but one person was noticeably absent: host Ellen DeGeneres.  "I’m sorry I couldn’t make the wedding. I appreciate --," DeGeneres said, before being interrupted by her guest.  "You're not really sorry," said Vergara, later adding, "Why didn’t you make a little more effort to go, it’s not like they're not holding the production for you for one day."  After a little back-and-forth about the host's absence, Vergara went on to gush about her wedding day.  "It was like a dream, like a fairy tale. It came out perfectly like how I wanted," she said. ...
