Photo-Illustration: Sheldon Cooper/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Much of Clubhouse is boring — or, at least, disproportionately filled with the awkward in-between of group interaction. This is far from a novel observation, and it’s an observation that continues to be made even as the attention and discourse around the audio chat app rose to fever pitch over the past few weeks. Pulling data from Apptopia, the New York Times reported that the app had been downloaded over four million times in the past month alone, which broadly corresponds with my own immediate networks. I started out the year with few outside my professional circles knowing what the app was; now, it’s something that gets brought up in my various Whatsapp groups every few days. That I personally find much of the app boring is a subjective contention, of course. I’m certain a substantial portion of the app’s user base would passionately differ from my assessment, and perhaps rightly so. I’ve only … [Read more...] about Does Clubhouse Mean Bad Things for Podcasting?

Growing up queer and Jewish, there weren’t a lot of people around me to relate to. Enter Fran Drescher, whose character on The Nanny , and the truly amazing wardrobe the show gave her, provided solace and inspiration to queer, Jewy me. For a little over a decade, Drescher flew under the radar, but over the last couple of years, she has reemerged once again. This time, she doesn’t have a sitcom – instead, her activism and her willingness to make her views public via Twitter have transformed her into a kind of cult icon for lefty queers . I recently got to chat with Drescher about how her experience with cancer influenced her activism, whether she’s actually anti-capitalist, and what we can all be doing to be a little bit more fabulously radical in 2017. You help run Cancer Schmancer, a nonprofit that originated from your experience having uterine cancer. It’s not like other celebrity nonprofits I’ve seen: You have a Frederick Douglass quote on the website and call out the medical … [Read more...] about How to Be More Fabulously Radical in 2017, According to Fran Drescher
All rise for Judge Abernathy. Photo-Illustration: by Vulture; Photo by CBS Among New York–based character actors, there are few distinctions more elite than serving as a judge in the Good Wife universe. The CBS drama, along with its spinoff The Good Fight , depicts a fantastical version of the Chicago legal world that’s filmed largely in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and populated primarily by theater actors who at least have a Drama Desk Award. Presiding over it all, there are a suite of judges who all come along with their own little quirks. Ana Gasteyer’s Judge Patrice Lessner wants the characters to preface everything with “in my opinion.” Linda Emond’s Judge Leora Kuhn lays down strict military law. Then there’s Judge Charles Abernathy, played by Denis O’Hare, a bleeding-heart liberal who arrives in court in his first episode asking for a moment of silence for the victims in Darfur, and who inevitably always seems to rule against his own beliefs in the interest of being fair. … [Read more...] about Denis O’Hare Answers Every Question We Have About Being a Judge on
Photo: HBO Max This month, against all odds, legions of fans were able to successfully push to get the once-mythic Snyder Cut released. Zack Snyder’s Justice League — a four-hour behemoth of a film that represents the director’s true vision for the superhero epic and vindication for his supporters — premiered on HBO Max two weeks ago. But having seemingly done the impossible and getting the Snyder Cut released, could these same fans propel the Snyder Cut to Oscar glory? Could we see Zack Snyder’s Justice League at next year’s Academy Awards? Short answer: No. Long answer: Almost certainly not. To be clear, Warner Bros. hasn’t made any indication that it’s about to gear up for a massive “For Your Consideration” campaign for Zack Snyder’s Justice League for the 2022 Oscars. (Warner Bros. did not respond to comment on the film’s Oscar eligibility.) However, it’s pretty clear that if the studio did want to throw the Snyder Cut’s hat in the ring for next year’s awards, it … [Read more...] about Is the Snyder Cut Eligible for Any Academy Awards?
