A reminder! The SAGs are Sunday — our look back at their 2007 red carpet is here! – so come by on Monday for major red carpet action, and, as ever, follow along with us as we live-tweet the red carpet on Twitter, which will surely be a departure from our general Twitter behavior of late.
Please excuse the jarring tonal segue from the above as I launch into this, but today is Holocaust Memorial Day. This Washington Post piece, about how Anne Frank’s family was denied entry to the United States as refugees from the Nazis, dates from 2014, but feels quite timely nevertheless (I only read it today myself).
At The Outline: America is afraid of ambitious women, even on TV
Bim Adewunmi’s piece about Inauguration Weekend is very worth your time. (As is everything she writes, actually.) [At Buzzfeed]
Over at Celebitchy: It’s Serena vs Venus in the Australian Open finals (which start really soon, if I’ve done the time change correctly). I’ve VERY TORN about who to root for. I love Serena, but I also love Venus. I might have to cheer for Venus, because she’s old and won’t be able to do this much longer (or maybe she will??) but, then, I want Serena to continue to rack up the major wins. I guess I will be delighted whoever wins and also I will be sad. (I might have to root for Venus. I feel like Serena will forgive me for this. I feel like it’s possible a part of Serena is also cheering for Venus to win?)
I also think you’ll enjoy Pret-a-Reporter’s look at Mary Tyler Moore’s TV style. MARY!
Related: Alan Sepinwall’s lovely farewell. As for myself, my mom used to watch reruns of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Bob Newhart at 6pm when I was a little kid, and Mary felt like part of our family. For a little girl, it was very valuable — even though I didn’t realize it at the time — to see that a smart, working, single woman was someone to admire and love. (And I also loved her apartment and outfits. You can have brains and moxie AND good boots.)

In Brooklyn, this is a great essay from Rahawa Haile about watching Hidden Figures as (in her words), “a black woman who gave up on her astrophysics major.”
