Working Girl has been on my mind lately; after Mike Nichols passed away in November, I was inspired to re-watch the 1988 comedy starring Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, Harrison Ford, and a super slimy Alec Baldwin. So, let’s Lean In™ (sorry not sorry) and recast it for 2015. You’re welcome, Hollywood.

2. "You think that because I'm a movie star I don't have feelings, Meryl. Well you're wrong. I'm an actress. I've got all of them!" (Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, 1/10/13)
3. "Guess what, Meryl? I'm a lesbian. A big one." (Houston Film Critics Society Award, 1/5/13)

Can I call you Neddy? OK, Neddy. Why don't [...]
Here's the complete list of the 2011 Academy Award nominees. Spoiler alert, if you haven't viewed the list yet: there are a few nominees that feel off—James Franco, leave us in peace for awhile!—but many more that feel really exciting and full of promise, like the Academy could be forgiven of all its past sins if any of these people were to win. It's pretty hard to choose just one from each category, but here they are.
