Yeah, Sarandon has always had this smugness to her that I’ve never liked. I like her as an actress, but as a personality, she’s always come off as a rich snob, and her telling people to vote third party was really dumb and ignorant of her.

The one who wrote about Steubenville I believe went on to write for Buzzfeed, so they scooped her up quick.

She’s on the writing staff of Last Week Tonight, so I’d like to think that it’s the staff as a whole that got Emmy nominated, not just her.

Maybe some of it is the joke of her being a petite person with a large dog.

Though Winona’s character basically goes from college valedictorian to working shit jobs. Jia has pretty much coasted through a lot of big success in her twenties already. But the pretension is the same, with both creating pseudo-intellectual pieces.

Totally. He was at fault, his dog was a pest (though I wouldn’t kick it), and her boyfriend doesn’t look like he’d hold up well in a fight. They basically epitomize self-absorbed Brooklyn gentrifiers, despite Jia thinking she’s above it.

Yeah, like they were all praising her for being “bad” and not following rules. Yeah, it’s real cute for a grown-ass dog to bite you because it’s “friendly.”

I didn’t see it as sexist, it seemed common to compare one writer to another. I just made fun of her false modesty and her acting as if she hasn’t modeled herself after Didion’s affected cool.

I just thought it was funny that for someone who would likely write insults about boring white straight men, that she ends up with a basic one.

Also, and this is petty of me, but it does not surprise me at all that her partner looks like a typical white guy Brooklyn gentrifier.

I liked her Drop Dead Gorgeous review, though I’m not surprised she would love it. She would fit more as the Denise Richards character than the innocent characters she highly praised.

I did laugh when she tried to act surprised that she gets compared to Didion, as if it isn’t a writing style/influence that she’s been personally cultivating and developing for years.

She has more talent than Lena, though, and is a better writer.

The dog is cute, but it annoyed me how they’ve had the dog for several years and think it’s cute that it keeps jumping on people or trying to bite them. Dollars to donuts that their “bad girl” will bite or jump on a kid in the park and a Park Slope-type mom will call animal control on them.
