Ava DuVernay Shared The One Time In Her Career She Betrayed Herself

“My father, [at] five years old, was one of the kids standing out, waving as Dr. King and the people walked by,” DuVernay said. “The symbol for Lowndes County on their county flag is a panther… You know the whole Black Panther origin? Lowndes County is — that’s its own movie. It’s incredible. My father is from there. And his daughter ends up making the film called Selma. So when I get the script and… it’s called Selma, shouldn’t there be some people from Selma in the movie?”

“Fixer Upper” Is Ending After Its Upcoming Fifth Season

“Our beautiful children are growing up so quickly,” she said of their four kids, Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie. “So I think the idea that we kind of get to step back and just get kind of fresh vision, get some rest, but also just hunker down with our kiddos is something that we’re excited about, but also sad that this chapter in our lives is coming to an end.”

Robin Roberts Had A Beautiful Moment With An Audience Member On The Anniversary of Her Bone Marrow Transplant

“You don’t know what it is yet, but I can tell by you having the courage to come up here and speak, you’re going to have the courage and strength to face whatever that doctor says to you.

Riz Ahmed Is Now The First Asian Man To Win An Acting Emmy

In a speech to the House of Parliament in London earlier this year, the British-Pakistani actor gave his case for representation of ethnic minorities in media. “If we fail to represent, we are in danger of losing people to extremism,” he said. “People are looking for the message that they belong, that they are part of something, that they are seen and heard and that despite, or perhaps because of, their experience, they are valued.

Here's Why Some People Are Mad At Taylor Swift's New Video

On her character in “Blank Space,” Swift described her thusly last year: “She jet-sets around the world collecting men! And she can get any of them, but she’s so clingy that they leave and she cries and then she gets another one in her web.
