On my FB page I called it her “golden warrior goddess gown.” Just stunning!
No, you actually see the point pretty clearly! It is about the film industry patting itself on the back, and although in the very beginning it was no different from similar events in other industries (“Teacher of the Year,” “Century 21 Insurance Salesman of the Year,” etc.), it rapidly became a Huge Thing because it… Read more
