Ellen DeGeneres, Ilene Chaiken, Nina Jacobson, Netflix VP Cindy Holland, Megan EllisonAngelina Jolie and Jill Soloway are the out women on The Hollywood Reporter’s list of Women Entertainment Power 100. In Ilene’s profile, she shared this tidbit: “I’m trained in an array of martial arts disciplines. I’m not suggesting I could kick anyone’s ass.”

The Toronto Film Critics Association voted Carol the best film of the year. Director Todd Haynes spoke with Deadline about why he and screenwriter Phyllis Nagy didn’t feel like they had to pander to financiers to get the film made.

Speaking of Carol, the Critics Choice Awards nominees were released today and the film continues to rack up nods, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Cinematography. Tons of other faves are up for awards, too, including Lily Tomlin, The Danish Girl, Jessica Jones and Transparent.

BTW, Bloomberg doesn’t think Jessica Jones is as feminist as everyone else does, largely because of Jeri Hogarth. Megan McArdle writes:

I have no problem believing that a rich older lesbian can be cruel to her wife of many years and interested in a younger woman largely as arm candy. What I don’t believe is that that said lesbian can do this while being completely unaware of what it feels like to be the older woman losing her youthful looks as menopause rears its head, or the 23-year-old woman being courted. Yet that’s how the Hogarth character is written. This studied inversion made a significant subplot fall flat for me.

“It’s about her quest –as she puts it– as an aging single lesbian to become a mother after not having being parented about her biological parents. It’s her story about how when she hit 35 wanted to become a mom and didn’t want to miss the chance.”
