Whit Stillman does not understand college. But no one really expects him to. The director of Metropolitan and Barcelona has never been a master of realism. But in Damsels In Distress, he has created a college experience idealized to the point that only an old person could love it. More

We’ve hit the awkward muumuu stage of Mad Men. It’s season 5 of the show, and the action has progressed to 1966. The cast members are older, but they’re certainly not wiser. More
There was a lot going on during last night’s episode of Mad Men. The show has been on hiatus for over a year and fans were eagerly waiting to see where the characters ended up in 1967. But there was one thing noticeably missing: January Jones.
There were a lot of white dresses on the Oscars red carpet this year. And while it may have been unusual to see areola on stage, it wasn’t much of a surprise that it attached to J-Lo. However! There were so many other white dresses on display. And some of them were nice. While others were simply confusing. Let’s take a look, shall we? More
This Sunday is SuperBowl XXLVI. In the words of the Insane Clown Posse: Roman Numerals. How do those work?
They work like this: It is SuperBowl 46. Click through our gallery to learn all sorts of other important facts to be deployed at your leisure on Sunday.
This season of Kourtney And Kim Take New York has been a diagram of the downfall of Kim Kardashian‘s 72 day long marriage. After a lavish wedding that cost a reported $10 million, the couple spent about the length of a reality show season together. And they let cameras film most of their time together. The result is a weirdly crumbling catastrophe that the world has watched (or revolted against). And last night, we got to see their final moments together on camera.
And watching Kim Kardashian orchestrate the dissolution of her marriage without cluing in her husband Kris Humphries was truly impressive to watch. Needless to say, Kris will NOT be returning for the next season.
The stars all came out for the SAG Awards in Hollywood on Sunday. And “The Actor” for best actor in a film surprisingly went to Jean Dujardin for his performance in The Artist.
Dujardin’s win was a severe upset considering that The Oscar race for the same prize is considered to be between George Clooney and Brad Pitt. More
Jonah Hill was great in the Brad Pitt baseball biopic MoneyBall. And this morning the Academy recognized that, with an Oscar nomination for the 28 year old actor. This is great news. Jonah’s chances for actually winning the Oscar may be slim, but this basically guarantees that he will get more serious dramatic roles. Which will be good for everyone. More
Last night on Kourtney And Kim Take New York, Kim Kardashian continued to stress out about her marriage to Kris Humphries without actually doing anything to fix it. Or rather, she came up with an escape hatch while he wasn’t looking.
She called up medium John Edwards and used their meeting as a means to ask for a divorce. All while an unsuspecting Kris Humphries hung out with his sister in New York. More
Zooey Deschanel walked into this evening’s Golden Globes ceremony as a quirky television neophyte with a lot of award nominations. But her show The New Girl left without winning any awards. And tomorrow around the internets, she is likely to get some flack for a hairstyle that was clearly meant as some sort of homage to cute 1960s style, but was interpreted more like misbegotten sideburns. But her nails are another story. They’re kind of awesome. But are they too kitschy for a formal occasion? Hmnn. Unclear. More
Tonight is The Golden Globes. Which means all of the actresses and stylists in Hollywood pull out their best dresses that they’re not reserving for Oscar night. And for some reason, a lot of ladies donned sparkling dresses that flared out at the bottom. These are known commonly as “mermaid gowns.” Or also, dresses that most normal women should never ever wear. More
Peter Dinklage won his first Golden Globe award tonight for his work on HBO’s Game Of Thrones. And after making the usual round of thanks and shouting out to his wife and new daughter, Dinklage told the audience he was thinking of his friend Martin Henderson in England. Who is this Martin Henderson? Dinklage gave instructions: Google it. So we did. More
