Instead of the usual ten, the American Film Institute’s AFI Awards saluted 11 films for their yearly honors. Among those singled out include Boyhood, Birdman and Foxcatcher. Christopher Nolan’s hit Interstellar also joined the list as well as Angelina Jolie’s directorial effort, Unbroken.

All these movies should feel good about their Oscar chances. Last year, seven films on AFI’s list made the cut for Best Picture at the Oscars. In 2012, eight achieved that feat.

“Those 11 flicks, as well as 10 TV programs, are honored with the awards because they are “deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.” AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale said in a statement, “They are a part of our American cultural heritage – collectively, a new chapter in the story of the art form and of our nation.”

Over on the television front, newcomers Silicon Valley, How To Get Away With Murder and Jane The Virgin joined veterans Game of Thrones and Mad Men on the Institute’s best list. I’m glad the freshmen series got some love. I love all of them, especially Shonda Rimes’ latest guilty pleasure. I especially love saying the title out loud in my best Viola Davis voice ;)

Prizes for both winners in movie and TV categories are handed at a private luncheon on January 9. Check out the rest of the winners below.

At this year’s Emmys, host Seth Meyers joked about Orange Is The New Black competing in the comedy category. While not your typical classic sitcom, the ladies of Litchfield do provide for some laughs. Can you picture them having their unique girl bonding moments over cheesecake? Imagine no more.

Some enterprising individual created a montage of the hit Netflix series set to the theme song of The Golden Girls. You’ll never see the memorable inmates the same way again. Check out Golden Is The New Black below.

Elsa‘s been a very bad girl. The Frozen queen has been sent to jail for casting eternal Winter on Arendelle. She joins other Disney princesses in a hilarious Orange Is The Black parody from animator Leigh Lahav who previously gave us the Hobbit-Mean Girls spoof, “Mean Elves.”

Watch the video below to see Elsa interact with Mulan, Merida, Ariel, Belle and more Disney characters in the big house. There’s even an Adele Dazeem reference in the mix. Poor John Travolta will never live that one down.

Did you spend the bulk of last weekend binge watching Season 2 of Orange Is The New Black? I still haven’t gotten around to it as of yet but plan on carving out some time this upcoming one.

Bennett (Matt McGorry) and Daya’s (Dascha Polanco) forbidden love affair play out is one of the more engaging storylines. If you’ve seen McGorry without his shirt, you know why his prison guard character is a fan favorite.

In a new video from College Humor, Matt channels his inner male stripper for what he thinks is an audition for Magic Mike XXL. Watch him show off his killer abs in the sexy clip below.

laverne-cox-time-magazine

When TIME’s recent annual list of the 100 most influential people failed to include Laverne Cox despite having considerable support on the publication’s people reader’s poll, it immediately prompted a backlash. Not surprisingly, a social media campaign emerged using the hashtag #whereisLaverneCox. Fast forward a couple of months later and Cox receives her own solo cover and on her birthday to boot. Happy Birthday guuuuurrrrl.

The Orange Is The New Black actress is front and center for the publication’s “The Transgender Tipping Point” piece. The cover story “examines the radical rise in awareness of transgender Americans and how this movement is reshaping our definitions of gender.” In the accompanying interview, Laverne talks about her childhood suicide attempt and how she feels people’s attitudes toward the transgender community have changed.

On When She First Felt She Might Be Transgendered

“I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.”

Orange Is The New Black Season 2 Trailer Released

In: Donovan, TV Shows
orange-is-the-new-black-season-2

Be sure to leave June 6 absolutely free. Netflix’s hit show Orange Is The New Black returns for another season of prison hijinks. I fully expect fans of the show to binge watch all 13 episodes of the addictive show in one seating with only minimal bathroom and snack breaks. I wish all shows did this. I hate waiting a week (sometimes more) for a new episode.

Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Laverne Cox and Kate Mugrew all return with new addition Lorraine Toussaint as Yvonne “Vee” Parker joining in on the fun. As the trailer states, “This is like next-level crazy…” I can’t wait.

Find out what all your favorite female inmates at Litchfield prison have been up to since last year. Watch the trailer below.
