    Variety held it's annual Power of Women event over the past weekend. This year's honorees are Vera Wang, Lupita Nyong'o, Julianne Moore, Megyn Kelly, and Misty Copeland, "who are using their clout to bring attention to worthy causes." Each was honored with a Variety cover & story.

    Vera Wang



    - Established the New York-Presbyterian Youth Anxiety Center along with psychiatrist David Shaffer (Anna Wintour's ex-husband) in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons
    - The center focuses on anxiety disorders in people aged 16 to 28, specifically as they transition into adulthood, with a three-fold approach to addressing the problem: treatment, research and education.
    -
    “We treat the anxiety,” says John Walkup, co-program director. “We also create programs to help these kids learn how to live again, how to cope and make up for the difficulties that they’ve accumulated since childhood.”

    I can't find a video of Vera's speech :(




    Lupita Nyong'o



    - Backs Mother Health Intl. for African Relief
    - The organization is dedicated to providing relief to women and children in Uganda and other impoverished or war-torn regions, in large part by creating locally engaged birthing centers.
    - “What these women are going through in northern Uganda is very much what we witness happening in the story I’m telling right now in ‘Eclipsed.’ It’s a tragedy that women’s bodies are used as tools of war. When that happens, the trauma of war affects birthing. Mortality rates of children are so high and mothers die at such a high rate in these areas. It’s so important to change that.”
    - Her sister introduced her to MHI executive director Rachel Zaslow.

    Julianne Moore



    - After Sandy Hook shooting, became involved with Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest U.S. organization for gun violence prevention, which launched in 2014 through a combination of the groups Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
    - Advocates for initiatives that would create stricter background checks and supports laws that keep guns away from domestic abusers and strengthen safety programs.
    - Moore points out that the group’s efforts are “not an anti-gun movement or a partisan movement — this is about safety.”

    Megyn Kelly



    - Disgusted by the statistics on child abuse in the United States. After receiving a 2009 award from the nonprofit Childhelp for covering these issues as an anchor on Fox News, she continued to stay involved by donating her time and appearing at fundraisers.
    - Childhelp is the nation’s largest nonprofit for abused youth, providing housing and counseling to victims, as well as a hotline with therapists available around the clock.
    - “Every 10 seconds in the country, someone calls up to report a child-abuse crime in progress."

    Misty Copeland



    - “I took my first ballet class on a basketball court at the Boys & Girls Club.” Misty, the first black woman to be promoted to principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre, supports Project Plie, the diversity initiative for which ABT has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of America.
    - Project Plie aims to create an infrastructure of training and support for underrepresented communities in the classical ballet world.
    - “It’s so much a part of my upbringing and my experience as a professional dancer,” she says. “I was the only African-American woman at ABT for a decade, and so much of what I do now is mentoring young minority dancers and trying to be a support system for them. It feeds me as an artist and as a person, and I learn more and more about myself and what’s lacking and what needs to be done in the professional ballet world.”

    Mariska Hargitay received the Karma Award for her philanthropic work as founder and president of the Joyful Heart Foundation, which helps survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse heal and reclaim joy in their lives through the programs they provide.

    At the luncheon, Andre Leon Talley gave his two cents about Donald Trump:
    "I wish him well. I wish him every success. I think he is a very important entertainer, and he is doing a great job running for president... Well, I think perhaps, I can’t say he has done a “great job.” I think he has done what he thinks is right. He feels it distinctively. It is an organic, fluid campaign, and he is the head of his own campaign and it is phenomenal what he has created, although I do think it is quite divisive. There are some things he’s said I certainly don’t agree with, but I admire him for doing what he has done."

    Looks like the nice quality is going to be pretty consistent this season (minus the always hilariously bad subtitles of course)! What did you think of act 27 part 2, ONTD?

    After stealing her scenes in Bridesmaids, all 4 of the subsequent films have become solid hits, despite some mixed and poor reviews. 'The Boss' and 'Ghostbusters' are expected to extend that run.

    One of the few actors who can draw big audiences based on their name alone.

    Despite getting terrible reviews (currently 18% on Rotten Tomatoes), 'The Boss' made $23.5 million in its debut to take the No. 1 spot from Batman v. Superman; It's Melissa's third No. 1 opening, the other two being Identity Thief and Spy.

    Her last five movie have all surpassed $100 million at the global box office, even though they were all R-rated

    Box-office analyst Jeff Bock compares her starpower to people Eddie Murphy in the 80s, Jim Carrey in the 90s and Adam Sandler in the 00s. "She has the same box-office prowess that they did. Every movie they put out was a hit — it didn't matter the reviews, the critical response. People just like her as a person the same way they gravitated towards Sandler, Carrey and Murphy back in the day."

    Her box office power has also made her one of top paid actresses in Hollywood ($12-$14 million for Ghostbusters)

    Has plans for a new movie with her husband directing (please stop)

    + Marvel plans on announcing both the director and the star of Captain Marvel this summer, which means — should everything go according to plan — we’ll have our answers during Comic-Con. Kevin Feige said: [You’ll have] a filmmaker and cast by the summer. Maybe before. Maybe after. Filmmaker announcement first.
    + Nicole Perlman and Inside Out scribe Meg LeFauve had been tapped to develop the screenplay.
    + Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Rebecca Ferguson are rumored to be up for the role.



    + In addition to directing the film, Ryan Coogler is also part of the team of writers working on the script. Also, filming is scheduled to begin in early 2017. Here’s what Feige said: "We have a number of writers on it including Ryan Coogler, who is also directing, he’s working on the draft right now. Between now and the end of the summer there will be more casting announcements. We start filming at the very beginning of next year.”
    + The director has already contributed to T’Challa’s on-screen portrayal via ‘Captain America: Civil War’. Here’s the quote from Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige: "Ryan came in and watched the movie. We did a little bit of additional photography here and there and Ryan did a pass at a couple of those scenes. So there’s a line or two that Panther says in the movie that Ryan contributed to. [Civil War screenwriters] Chris [Markus] and Steve [McFeely] absorbed it into their draft, put their spin on it and words to it, but Ryan has started to be involved in earlier cuts of this movie."
