Viola Davis wore independent Black designer LaviebyCK at the Globes, looked stunning

The Best Actress race is going to be between Viola Davis, Andra Day and Frances McDormand. (Carey Mulligan will be nominated too but she’s not going to win.) Both Viola and Frances already have Oscars, and Andra is a newcomer. While her performance in The United States vs. Billie Holiday was phenomenal, I thought that the material wasn’t up to par. The characters seemed like cutouts in that film and I felt that it needed more depth and heart. Andra won the Globe last night. Viola seemed happy for her, and was happy to be calling in from home. She was rocking this one shoulder custom bright print dress by Lavie by CK, helmed by young Black designer Claude Kameni. She makes African print fashion and has some ready to wear pieces which are relatively affordable. I love the fit and bright pr...

Golden Globes Voter Speaks Out: HFPA Outrage ‘Mostly Stems from Jealousy’ Among Journalists

Husam Asi, a BBC Cinematic presenter and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), told Sky News over the weekend that recent backlash against the Golden Globes voting organization “mostly stems from jealously” among journalists upset they do not get the same perks and level of access to filmmakers and actors as members of the HFPA do. The HFPA came under fire in the week leading up to the 2021 Golden Globes, not only for the revelation that it lacks a single Black member but also for claims that votes can be influenced through gifts. A report published by the Los Angeles Times noted that HFPA members were “routinely granted exclusive access to Hollywood power players, invited to junkets in exotic locales, put up in five-star hotels and, as Globes nominations near, lavishe

Realm gives homeowners the tools to treat their home like an investor. Here’s how it helped one LA couple build a rental property in their backyard.

Summary List PlacementLike so many other couples during the pandemic, Robyn and Lukas felt so cramped in their two-bedroom East Los Angeles apartment that they decided to buy a home. As the couple toured properties across the city, they saw multiple homes that featured alternative dwelling units or ADUs, small residences built into backyards. They decided that an ADU of their own would allow them space for Robyn's mother to visit or to generate some rental income. They purchased a home in Leimert Park for $744,000 that didn't have an ADU, but then set out to build their own. Robyn and Lukas declined to provide their full names to protect their privacy and location. We verified their purchase through a search of Los Angeles property records. They turned to Realm, a real estate data start...

Summary List Placement The recent spike in interest rates has Bank of America warning of a potential stock market crash, according to a Friday note.
