Yes, it’s time for my annual rant about The Academy’s Big Insult.
Despite the BAFTAs getting on board with a Casting category in 2019 there is still no Oscar for Best Casting even though the current president of the Academy’s Board of Governors is a Casting Director.

The NY Times recommends the podcast companion to the successful PBS series as one of 13 best for “wandering souls.”
I know I’m not the target demographic and you may be thinking, huh, Barb, I did not expect this reference, but I was genuinely excited when I read that Quest Love is executive-producing a documentary, Dilla Time – “part biography, part musicology, and part musical meditation” – adapted from Dan Charnas’ book of the same name about legendary, visionary, genius artist/producer J Dilla.
If you think overturning Roe v. Wade has nothing to do with you – or is an act worth celebrating – I invite you to read my story with an open heart.
I am a deeply private person. I have good friends who will read this and say I had no idea.
