Southside With You premiered at Sundance on January 24 of this year, 10 days after the Oscar nominations were announced, 10 days after it was clear that the Academy had neglected to nominate any people of color in the acting categories for the second straight year.

“Our motto is, when they go low, we go high,” Michelle Obama said in her speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, a vivid, emotional, expertly delivered endorsement of Hillary Clinton that somehow managed to—at least temporarily—wipe away the grime of cynicism and anger that have colored the past…
Carpool Karaoke, the segment on James Corden’s Late Late Show, is a conceit that’s generally annoyed me, seemingly tailored to show off Corden’s singing skills among bigger stars like the type of person at actual karaoke who will do a Celine Dion ballad at 3 am and insists you stay silent for the duration.
RNC Chief Strategist Sean Spicer has revealed his newest strategy for defending against plagiarism accusations directed towards Melania Trump’s speech on Monday, a speech that was very easily shown to rip off Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008. It involves a flying unicorn.

In a couple of weeks, Orlando will play host to the 2016 Invictus Games, an international athletic competition for injured vets founded by Prince Harry and with which he is very involved. To drum up enthusiasm, Harry is publicly beefing with the Obamas on Twitter.
The trailer for Southside With You, the upcoming historical romcom (romcom? bioromcom?) about Barack and Michelle Obama’s “epic first date across Chicago’s south side,” was released today, and it looks incredibly charming. Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyer star as the First Couple when they were just a Potential…
We all have those well-meaning, but slightly clueless white friends. You know, the ones who force you to explain that actually, you don’t have to say “African American.” “Black” is just fine. Really! It is! That’s what we call ourselves! Duchess Kate and Prince William were apparently those friends when their buddies …
