She may be a Grammy away from an EGOT but perhaps the greatest gift Helen Mirren has shared throughout her storied career — which, over the last five decades, has garnered four Emmys, a Tony, two Golden Globes, five BAFTA Awards and one Oscar — is not her acting prowess, but her unrepentant honesty.In honor of the standard-bearer's 71st birthday, we look back on 10 times Mirren didn't give a Dame and told it like it is. 1. When she broke down how language reinforces the infantilization of women. "Two phrases I hate in reference to female characters are 'strong' and 'feisty,'" Mirren said in a December 1997 interview with The Independent. "They really annoy me. It's the most condescending thing. You say that about a three-year-old. It infantilizes women." 2. When she lamented the lack of compelling roles for women — and, in particular, older women."There isn't a King Lear for women, or a … [Read more...] about 10 times Helen Mirren was a bona fide treasure

Super Bowls come and go in a blur of beer, wings and confusing Roman numerals. This Sunday will mark the golden anniversary of a remarkable secular holiday in which Americans come together to gape at the creative wonders of commercial advertising interrupted by a few minutes of actual football.Note that the NFL brain trust is calling this edition Super Bowl 50, dropping the traditional and pretentious Roman numeral designation, which in this case would be a single character, L. There are probably more than a few reasons for this, one certainly being that Super Bowl L would just look wrong — like a typographical version of the great half-time “wardrobe malfunction” of Super Bowl XXXVIII — and might impair the marketing bonanza that comes with celebrating a half-century’s worth of Budweiser Clydesdales.By the way, do you remember who won Super Bowl XXXVIII?I sure as heck don’t.For those of us who are long suffering Jets fans — accent on long … [Read more...] about Reisman: Where have you gone Broadway Joe?
