Jenji Kohan spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about Orange is the New Black‘s Golden Globe nomination, saying:

“Telling the stories of these felonious ladies is a tremendous pleasure and we are grateful to have our work recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.”

Pride screenwriter Stephen Beresford is also grateful for his film’s nomination.

“Thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this incredible nomination, and for the privilege of being placed in such extraordinary company. PRIDE is a true story about a small group of LGBT activists who stood shoulder to shoulder with a struggling mining community in their battle for jobs and survival. It’s a very funny story but also a very powerful one — and one which the real people involved feared would die with them. All of us involved with Pride are thrilled by this nomination, not least because these real-life lost heroes are finally getting the recognition they deserve.”

Patricia Cornwell talked with Yahoo Australia about Kay Scarpetta and her new book, Flesh and Blood. 

The new Bond film Spectre is rumored to have a “lesbian bad lady.” First of all: YES. Second of all, can it be Monica Bellucci or Léa Seydoux? They’re already cast in the film so it’s highly likely one of the two could be up for the role. Will she be anything like Pussy Galore? We can hope!
