  1. Bret Easton Ellis Attributes Kathryn Bigelow’s Success to Her Being a “Very Hot Woman.”

    And That's Terrible

    If there's one thing I don't like about Twitter, it's how it's given people an easy platform to say stupid things that they should have just kept to themselves.

Are we talking about visionary filmmaking or just OK junk?" Ahhh, I see what's happening here. Ellis is framing his sexism against Bigelow, the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Directing (because obviously there's no other explanation for a women achieving success in a male-dominated field than her sleeping around or mesmerizing guys with her boobs or something) as some ass-backwards defense of the integrity of the Oscars.
