Television is, of course, fake, but it can provide an opportunity to consider controversial topics like abortion in a comfortable, fictional setting. Yet, as researchers with the University of California, San Francisco, group Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health found, abortion on TV is often unlike abortion in real life and the mismatch could affect how people perceive women who terminate pregnancies. For a study published in the journal Contraception , researchers looked at depictions of abortion on all U.S. television shows (including networks, premium channels, and streaming services) from 2005 to 2014 and identified 78 plotlines where characters considered abortion, including 40 where a woman had one.

When Vulture ran into Baker at a cocktail party for the film Learning to Drive , hosted by the Cinema Society, we asked her if there would be any upswings for Mrs. Horvath in season five. While she was cagey about season-long details (no spoilers!), Baker did reveal that there would be some serious mother-daughter bonding this year... Read More...
Out with the old and even the relatively new! That seemed to be the edict for the 2016 Golden Globes nominations which look mighty different than how they did a year ago. Take the Best Drama Series race, for example, where four out of five nominees from 2015 found themselves as overlooked as burlap turtlenecks http://tvline.com/2015/12/10/golden-globe-snubs-nominations-2016-photos/
