This is the honest-to-God funniest Golden Globes (visual) wrap-up ever, far more entertaining than the dreadfully unfunny and uninspiring broadcast this year.

Back in the day, when I was editing a teen magazine that I founded, I covered Zac Efron, the Jonas Brothers, Hilary Duff and many more first-first-first. (We were actually too early, so in that regard, my special skill was detrimental in the area of selling magazines!) You can read a bit about that phase of my life in my book, Starf*cker.
In this video, I show up talking about Brie Larson, who I knew was on the verge of breaking through. A dozen (ha) short years later, she's winning Golden Globes. (Image by Rena Durham)
Keep reading to watch her as she enthuses about The O.C. and about making music that's a combo of P!nk and Michelle Branch ...

Why do THESE PEOPLE always make EVERYTHING about RACE?

First look at Skarsgard as Tarzan. One more pic here.
Prof. Brittney Cooper, writing for Salon.com, derides the Je Suis Charlie movement as a whites-only, disingenuous display, pointing out that because white people in America aren't on board with #blacklivesmatter, their embrace of #jesuischarlie just underscores our racism.
She goes on to imply that while white women may have a right to call out their black rapists, she isn't exactly on board with supporting them unless there is racial quid pro quo—again, because in her view, white America does not accept that #blacklivesmatter.
I found her essay revolting because it came off the same way so many comments from white racists do on the Internet, like there is a score being kept. I recall arguments that Trayvon Martin and other victms' stories were being blown out of proportion, with examples used of white people who had been brutalized by black people—completely ignoring that the cases at hand shared nothing in common (obvious criminal activity that was punished and that everyone agreed should be punished vs. legally fraught situations where public opinion seemed to hinge on race).
Not all of white America thinks #blacklivesdontmatter—I don't think that, and I know I'm not alone. But I can not imagine not being moved by the Charlie Hebdo massacre, by Bill Cosby's obviously true history of sexual abuse, by Trayvon Martin's senseless killing, by the #icantbreathe movement...I think these things should be looked at by what's wrong and what's right, not whether some white women historically helped imprison black men on phony rape charges, not whether slavery used to be legal in America.
It struck me as a deeply negative piece, one that luxuriates in divisiveness. It even denigrates Common for being too inclusive. It's wrong-headed thinking, even if race is still very much an issue.
Finally catching up on Transparent. It's even better than I'd already assumed it would be. Jeffrey Tambor is sooo getting an Emmy. I'm actually surprised other actors on the show weren't nominated for Golden Globes.
Just a few short decades ago, Jeffrey Tambor was starring with Audra Lindley on the silly show The Ropers, and now he's borrowing her wardrobe to help make a serious statement about life.
I think TV has officially surpassed the movies. TV used to be something legit actors avoided, because TV used to be The Ropers and now it's Transparent. Please check it out if you've been holding back.
