Halle Berry was a presenter at the GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday and took a moment to mention one of the greatest films of all time – 2004’s Catwoman – and declare that she thought it deserved another “goddamn chance.” YES, IT DOES. The only thing wrong with this emancipation of a bad movie proclamation was Halle not working that Clan of the Cave Bear braid that she was sporting last summer. That braid took us all to Fascination Street. Was it for a movie? Was she exploring the woodlands in a much more barbaric time? Bring that braid back, Ms Berry. And lobby for a release a Criterion Collection cut of Catwoman, already. Sharon Stone (she played the villain) has already got an outfit for the release party to go with her derisive laughter.
Mo’Nique has recently called for a boycott of Netflix based on color and gender bias when they offered her a pittance ($500,000) compared to what they offered Amy Schumer ($11 million), Dave Chappelle ($20 million) and Chris Rock (also $20 million). While her boycott may not have gotten a lot of traction, a lot of people have thanked her for starting an important conversation. Wanda Sykes is one of those people. Wanda, who arguably has a much higher profile than Mo’Nique, says Netflix offered her even less.
