Kendall Jenner Speaks on Golden Globes Acne, Sticks it to Haters

The Golden Globes were a huge deal.

Oprah delivered an epic speech ... so epic that it got tragically sidelined by debate about whether or not she should become President, which was entirely not the point.

Kendall Jenner, Golden Globes Acne

But not even that series of epic moments on the red carpet and at the ceremony itself could distract viewers from a certain member of the Kardashian clan who came dressed in black.

And ... sporting some acne.

Some fans decided to give Kendall Jenner a hard time about her breakout, but she's speaking out about it on Twitter.

Kendall Jenner is drop-dead gorgeous.

Beauty is subjective, so they say, but many feel that she's the most beautiful member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

It's easy to see why.

Kendall Jenner, Acne at the Golden Globes

Many of the Kardashians have done modeling -- often for their own products.

But Kendall's really the only one to make an entire career out of professional modeling. She's a supermodel.

But even so, that wasn't enough to keep fans -- and people who are decidedly not fans -- from pointing out that she was sporting some facial acne at the Golden Globes.

Do you notice the acne? The little bumps on her face.

Not to be confused with the possible baby bump that some fans thought that they spotted, leading them to believe that Kendall Jenner is also pregnant.

Kendall Jenner, Golden Globes Viewing Party

(Honestly, we don't need that level of madness in our lives ... which is also probably how Kendall feels as she's soon to become Kris Jenner's only childless child.)

It's not a big deal. Lots of people -- almost everyone -- gets acne.

Remember your health teacher telling the class of 11-year-olds that everybody gets acne during puberty but it goes away when you're an adult?

You grew up to learn that this was a lie, and that even if you wash your face with overpriced products every single day, you still get acne sometimes.

Well, celebs go through the same thing. Kendall included.

Kendall Jenner at the Golden Globes

What most of us have never faced is being in the spotlight on the level of, say, attending the Golden Globes or being Kendall Jenner.

And certainly not both.

Kendall Jenner got some negative mentions on social media. Because, sadly, of course she did.

If you want to criticize her business choices or whatever, go to town, but making fun of somebody's acne on social media or in real life is a super garbage thing to do, folks.

Anyway, Kendall didn't directly respond to the hate. She instead responded to a very different message.

Kendall Jenner Possible Bump

One Twitter user tweeted:

"Ok but @Kend​allJenner showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star is what every girl needs to understand."

That's a great message, though most people who are intent on loathing their appearances might say "well yeah but she's Kendall Jenner." Which is missing the point.

Kendall saw the tweet and quoted it, writing:

"Never let that s--t stop you!" [smiling face with sunglasses emoji] [sparkles emoji]

Honestly, that's good advice.

Kendall Jenner on KUWTK Episode

Good advice for anyone ... and maybe good advice, specifically, for her sister Kylie.

Kylie Jenner is due on February 4th. That's less than a month from now, folks.

And, well, she's been reportedly concerned for months that her pregnancy is making her ugly.

Maybe it's her baby bump. Maybe it's weight gain -- that's normal for pregnancies, folks.

Maybe it's stretch marks. Maybe gestational acne. Maybe it's something else. We don't know.

Kendall Jenner Relaxes

Whatever it is, it's so bad that she's reportedly just planning on hiding out until the baby is born.

That's her choice but it's also nuts.

We can't help but wonder if Kendall is sending a not-so-subtle message to her sister, or at least thinking of her.

If Kendall can go to the Golden Globes with an acne breakout covering the side of one of her cheeks, then Kylie can show her face while pregnant.

Just saying.

Oprah Winfrey 2020: Golden Globes Speech Prompts Presidential Speculation!

Sunday night's Golden Globes award ceremony had a number of big moments, but the biggest by far was Oprah Winfrey's incredible speech.

People are still talking about it.

Oprah Inspires

But some people -- particularly on Twitter -- are talking about more than just Oprah's speech.

They're talking about Oprah's potential political career. They're talking about Oprah 2020.

Oprah Winfrey, clad in a gorgeous black dress, accepted the prestigious Cecile B. DeMille award.

The speech that she delivered touched hearts and minds. Talking about the changes and milestones that she's seen in her lifetime, and all of the positive change that still needs to happen.

In that speech, she speaks up for so many marginalized people who have endured similar abuses to what so many women in Hollywood have undergone, but who aren't in any position to speak up. 

Oprah Backstage

Even with the #MeToo movement and now the #TimesUp movement, some people's jobs or lives make it impossible for them to speak up without potentially condemning their children to lose everything.

You know what some would call everyday folks in those circumstances? Voters.

Twitter's reaction to Oprah's evocative speech was pretty intense, with one tweet reading:

"As I sit here in tears...I have never ever seen such a speech. @Oprah, my friend. Please run for President. This world needs more of THAT. WOW."

That was a very popular sentiment. And it still is.

Oprah Winfrey with Big Glasses

The idea of Oprah running for President isn't new. After Trump's alarming electoral victory in 2016, a number of Democrats started to wonder if the Left needed a billionaire celebrity of their own.

Oprah is a self-made billionaire who has touched the lives of millions. She's intelligent, well-spoken, thoughtful, compassionate, and her positive contributions to society are well-known.

On the other hand, some wonder if Oprah's lack of any governing experience should disqualify her from the position.

Prior to 2016, Presidential candidates were usually either former members of Congress or former Governors.

People need to feel confident that their candidate knows what they're doing.

Oprah W. Photograph

Some question whether Trump's tumultuous Presidency is simply making people desperate for any alternative whom they believe could win, rather than for the best and most qualified person for the job.

Is Oprah the answer to our nation's problems?

Or just an inspirational name that some hope will bring in the right votes and bring an end to our long national nightmare in 2020?

Some criticisms of the idea are less about Oprah and more about ... other political beliefs of there.

It's been pointed out that Oprah becoming President would mean that Oprah would be the one ordering drone strikes.

Oprah Red Carpet Image

For some people, America's ongoing drone warfare as a counterterrorism strategy is controversial.

For some, very validly, there's concern about collateral damage. (Though still, fewer innocents die in drone strikes than would die if the US sent in soldiers to perform the same duties)

For others, however, there's a general objection to some of the roles that a modern Presidency fulfills. Some of these people are anarchists, others merely pacifists.

And there are plenty of folks who would hate to see Oprah committing what they believe to be "atrocities."

Some say that you can't fix the problems of an evil billionaire celebrity with a good billionaire celebrity.

Under no circumstances would Oprah's candidacy mean that the Democratic Party would be "sinking to the level" of the GOP.

Oprah worked herself from nothing and became a billionaire. Trump inherited his father's riches and, with repeated failures, is worth less today than he would have made if he'd simply invested his inheritance.

But while Oprah is an incredible human being, is she the best choice?

Would an Oprah Presidency see cabinet positions filled by unqualified charlatans? Would Doctor Oz be Surgeon General? Would Doctor Phil be ... whatever cabinet position is usually filled by walruses?

Let's wait and see what sort of campaign Oprah would run before we rush to judgment in either direction, okay?

Blanca Blanco: Slammed For Revealing RED Dress at the Golden Globes

There were many winners at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night:

Nicole Kidman. Oprah Winfrey. Anyone associated with the movie Lady Bird.

In the aftermath of an event that celebrated female empowerment, however, one clear loser has emerged. Her name is Blanca Blanco.

Blanca Blanco

Yes, Blanca Blanco.

We're guessing you haven't heard of this actress, considering her IMDB page for projects in 2017 includes movies titled Spreading Darkness, Fake News and American Romance.

She isn't exactly an A-Lister.

But Blanco still managed to make many headlines at the Golden Globes because she walked the red carpet in the ensemble pictured above and below.

Pretty much everyone on the Internet has noted both the dress color and the abundance of skin Blanco flaunted in the outfit, both of which went against the evening's theme.

As detailed in the photo gallery down below, nearly every other celebrity at the ceremony was dressed in black as a protest against the sexual harassment endemic that has plagued Hollywood for decades.

But not Blanco.

Blanca Blanco Picture

She thumbed her nose (and exposed her cleavage) at this convention, rocking a seriously red and revealing ensemble.

And social media definitely noticed.

Some folks replied with humor:

blanco note

And others with a critique of Blanco, both for defying the all-black fashion statement and also for the actual dress she chose.

To wit:

Blanco image

Still others, meanwhile, thought it was hypocritical to call out a woman for what she was wearing, considering the entire point of the "protest" at the Golden Globes was to show that females are strong and powerful and independent.

Doesn't it run counter to that point to drag a woman for choosing to wear whatever she wants?

As for what she was thinking, Blanco spoke to Refinery 29 about the controversy and said:

"I love red. Wearing red does not means I am against #timesup movement.

"I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice.

"It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the Time's UP movement because true change is long overdue."

After giving props to designer Atria Couture for the gown in an interview with Fox, Blanco also jumped on Twitter and wrote:

"The issue is bigger than my dress color. Red is passionate. #TIMESUP."

That's true and fair.

But should people passionate about the issue of sexual misconduct across Hollywood and other fields fault Blanco for her decision?

Sound off below, while you check out these snapshots:

Debra Messing Calls Out E! Over Gender Pay Gap on Red Carpet

Like many of the women who came dressed in black to the Golden Globes, a wardrobe of solidarity was only the most superficial part of Debra Messing's agenda for the evening.

She is now being hailed as one of the evening's most satisfying highlights. Why?

As you'll see in the video below, Debra Messing calls out E!'s alleged gender pay gap ... while being interviewed by E!.

Debra messing smiles at the golden globes

Sunday night's Golden Globes were huge.

Oprah delivered a powerful speech that everyone is still talking about.

Oprah, Aziz Ansari, and Sterling K. Brown all made history with their respective awards -- some long, long overdue milestones.

In her role as a presenter, Natalie Portman dragged the "all-male nominees" for Best Director, highlighting the bizarre gender gap and the women who were robbed for recognition of their incredible work.

Debra Messing didn't wait until the ceremony to grab people's attention.

She made her stand on the red carpet.

Catt sadler

Speaking to Giuliana Rancic, Debra Messing had a lot to say about the #TimesUp movement (which grew out of #MeToo).

"...Its time is up. We want diversity. We want intersectional gender parity. We want equal pay."

Those are all wonderful things! It's great that she's one of countless people demanding change in Hollywood.

And speaking of that whole equal pay thing ...

"I was shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-host the same as their male co-host."

Oh wow.

"I miss Catt Sadler, so we stand with her. And that’s something that can change tomorrow."

Debra messing at the globes

See, just last month, Catt Sadler quit working at E! over an alleged pay gap issue.

She apparently learned that, though she'd worked at E! for 12 years, her cohost Jason Kennedy was earning about twice her salary, and that he'd been making that much for years.

The pay gap happens in all kinds of industries, folks. It can happen in entertainment news and anywhere else.

Many people hope that E! will make a fair offer to Catt Sadler that will allow her to return to work with dignity.

No one doubts that Jason Kennedy is worth what he's making; they just want for Catt Sadler to be paid what she deserves.

And, by extension, for all women to be paid what they deserve rather than what employers believe that they can get away with.

Catt sadler picture

For the record, Debra Messing was not the only star on E!'s red carpet speaking out about Catt Sadler.

Eva Longoria, gorgeous and pregnant, told Ryan Seacrest:

"We support gender equity and equal pay, and we hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well. We stand with you, Catt."

The fact that so many actresses wore black in solidarity and spoke about such important issues is a real sign of progress.

Debra messing profile at the golden globes

That is not to say that the Golden Globes went off without a hitch, however.

One subject of continuing controversy is creepy James Franco winning a Golden Globe when his reputation is sketchy at best.

In fact, his win on that night of all nights was enough for one actress to hint at sexual misconduct. Others have chimed in, alleging things like an interest in underage teens.

So yes, Hollywood -- like the rest of the world -- has a long way to go before everything's as it should be.

But progress can only be made when people speak out. Thank you, Debra Messing.

See her call out E! right to E!'s cameras here:

James Franco: Ally Sheedy Hints at Sexual Misconduct, Slams Golden Globes Win

One of the most buzzed-about moments from last night's Golden Globes ceremony did not involve Oprah or Natalie Portman. 

When James Franco was awarded the prize for for best actor in a musical or comedy, he received some unexpected backlash.

James Franco Golden Globes Photo

Franco called to the stage Tommy Wiseau, the director and real life director behind his role in The Disaster Artist.

but shut the enigmatic filmmaker down when he attempted to make a speech.

Wiseau was reportedly not happy about being publicly rebuked, and sources say he made his displeasure clear after the ceremony.

And it seems he wasn't the only one who was outraged by Franco's victory on Sunday night.

Tweeting from an unverified account, Ally Sheedy, the actress perhaps best known for her role in the 1985 film The Breakfast Club, weighed in.

Ally and James

She hinted that sexual misconduct on Franco's part played a part in her decision to leave the film industry.

"James Franco just won," Sheedy wrote.

"Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business."

The tweet was one of several in which Sheedy was critical of Franco and the awards themselves.

"Why is a man hosting?" Sheedy tweeted at the start of the evening.

"Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya."

James Franco, Dave Franco, Tommy Wiseau

Shortly thereafter, she added:

"Ok wait. Bye. James Franco and Christian Bale at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo"

Sheedy deleted the tweets after Vanity Fair and several other outlets reported that she has implicitly accused Franco of sexual misconduct.

She worked with Franco in the 2014 play The Long Shrift, but she has never before publicly suggested that he behaved inappropriately.

This, of course, is not the first time that Franco has found himself enmeshed in a sex scandal.

James and Dave Franco

Also in 2014, the actor was accused of attempting to seduce a 17-year-old girl he met online and attempting to arrange an illicit rendezvous.

He later joked about the incident while hosting Saturday Night Live.

Contacted by several media outlets, Sheedy declined to comment further on her tweets.

To some observers, this silence suggests that either there's more to that story, or that she too was victimized by Franco.

We'll have further details on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Natalie Portman Heroically Derides "All-Male" Nominees at Golden Globes!

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear elegant black dresses.

Last night at the Golden Globes, Oprah delivered an incredible speech that everyone is talking about, and for good reason.

But she wasn't the only one to catch everyone's attention.

Natalie Portman Presents: All Male Nominees

Natalie Portman, with just a few words, called out hypocrisy and showed that she was not even remotely f--king around.

The big chatter leading up to Sunday night's Golden Globes award show, everyone was talking about the black dresses.

Would every woman be wearing a black dress? Was it a visual sign of solidarity or an empty gesture?

(Hint: since these women are doing a lot more than have a matching color scheme, it's really not an empty gesture)

People also talked about men wearing black in support ... but men are generally dressed in mostly black for these events anyway.

But once people started showing up on the red carpet, talk swiftly turned away from the omnipresent (and gorgeous) black dresses.

Natalie Portman, Golden Globes Smile

Debra Messing (who remains beloved, even though the Will & Grace revival is kind of a mess) called out E! for allegedly not paying Catt Sadler fairly.

The gender pay gap is serious business, folks, and it exists in so many businesses.

Sadler quit E! after more than a decade, upon learning that her male costar was allegedly earning twice her salary.

Messing said this on E!'s red carpet, while being interviewed by Giuliana Rancic.

Eva Longoria, looking pregnant and gorgeous, also called out E! for their alleged pay gap.

Natalie Portman and Ron Howard, Golden Globes Presenters

The highlight of this Golden Globes night of zero chill was definitely Oprah's inspiring, powerful speech.

But Oprah wasn't the only star speaking out or making headlines and waves from that stage.

Natalie Portman and Ron Howard came up on stage for what seemed like it would be a regular, run-of-the-mill presentation.

They were there, ostensibly, to unveil the nominees for the Best Director category and announce the winner.

But, as you can see here, Natalie Portman announced the nominees by highlighting the fact that every single nominee was male:

Natalie Portman: All Male Nominees

"And here are the all-male nominees."

Honestly?

What a great reminder that Natalie Portman was the best possible choice to play Padme Amidala. Sometimes the character and actor match up.

Anyway, this moment did not go unnoticed.

Shonda Rhimes tweeted: "'And here are the all male nominees.' Natalie Portman calls it for what it is."

Sarah Silverman tweeted: "Oh s--t Portman for the win! 'And here are the all male nominees' wheeeeWhoooo!!"

Natalie Portman at the 2017 SAG Awards

We don't want to give the impression that the Golden Globes were business as usual. They were not.

Oprah was the first black woman in her category.

Sterling K. Brown made history with his award.

Aziz Ansari made history with his award.

But these are long overdue milestones.

These are entire demographics of supremely talented actors who have been shut out for years and are only now receiving the recognition that they deserve.

Kind of like plenty of female directors who, many believe, deserved more recognition for their groundbreaking work in 2017.

Rose McGowan Tears Into Golden Globes, "Fake" Hollywood Activism

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards aired live from Los Angeles on Sunday night.

But talk afterward was less about big wins for Big Little Lies and more about the theme of nearly every speech, not to mention nearly every outfit:

Female empowerment in Hollywood.

As you can see in the photo gallery above, celebrities from all industries walked the red carpet in all-black, coming together to make a statement in support of the #MeToo Movement.

Speech after speech centered on this topic, which has been at the forefront of the entertainment world for months now, ever since producer Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a sexual predator.

There were multiple standing ovations.

There were many tears shed.

There was applause all around for the brave women (and men) who have spoken out against accusers and helped drive terrible people such as Kevin Spacey and Matt Lauer out of a job.

In other words:

This was the sort of night Rose McGowan has been waiting for her entire professional life, right?

The actress came out long ago with accusations of rape against Weinstein and has finally seen these allegations proven right.

Rose McGowan on Stage

So, why didn't she do a figurative victory dance on Sunday?

Because McGowan doesn't care about symbolism.

She cares about action.

The star took to Twitter to slam her acting peers in response to the following Tweet from Asia Argento, an actress and singer who also says Weinstein raped her.

"No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence," she wrote to McGown, adding:

"Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”

Replied McGowan:

"And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, .@AsiaArgento #RoseArmy."

rosem

Argento went on to note that neither she nor McGowan were invited to attend the Golden Globes.

This isn’t the first time McGowan has been critical of her fellow celebrities. She is nothing if not passionate and outspoken.

Late last year, for example, McGowan Tweeted about the idea for stars to wear black as a fashion/anti-harassment statement in a series of since-deleted posts.

"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem," she wrote at the time, adding:

"You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy."

Rose McGowan, Arms Crossed

Shortly after McGowan’s comments, Streep told Entertainment Tonight that she was “hurt to be attacked by” McGowan and insisted she knew nothing at all about Weinstein’s bad reputation when it came to women.

“I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the ‘90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others,” Streep said in response.

“I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know. I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening.”

For the record, and for what it's worth, Streep attended Sunday night’s ceremony.

She wore a black gown and she took activist/the Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Ai-jen Poo, as her date.

Golden Globes: 13 Most Memorable (and Powerful) Moments

Two moving movies and one HBO television show won big at the 2018 Golden Globes.

But what were the moments everyone is talking about in the aftermath of a unique ceremony that dedicated over three hours of speeches and presentations to victims of sexual harassment?

From a winning monologue to a bold two words uttered by a former Oscar winner, scroll down to find out...

1. The Host with the Most...

The host with the most
... great jokes. Seth Meyers receives strong marks for a monologue that was both funny, relevant and unafraid to call out the major names who have been busted for sexual misconduct.

2. Nicole Kidman Won the First Award of the Night...

Nicole kidman won the first award of the night
... and then said this: "Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away — and that is love. It's true. I love you so much." Total and complete swoon.

3. Natalie Portman Wore Black...

Natalie portman wore black
... but she also used words to speak out against the power imbalance in Hollywood. While introducing the nominated Best Directors with Ron Howard, Portman, the actress tossed in two words a pair of important and pointed words: "And here are the ALL MALE nominees..."

4. Friends Forever?

Friends forever
More like icon forever. Jennifer Aniston was all of us in presenting on stage with her idol, Carol Burnett. Their bit included the veteran comedian mistaking the actress for Will & Grace star Debra Messing... and Aniston finally getting the chance to tug her idol's ear.

5. Sterling K. Brown Makes History

Sterling k brown makes history
Brown earned the trophy for best actor in a television series in a drama, becoming the first black man to do so. He then said on stage: "[Series creator] Dan Fogelman throughout the majority of my career I've benefited from color blind casting. Like, 'Hey let's throw a brother in this role.' It’s really cool, but then Dan, you wrote a role for a black man that could only be played by a black man. So what I really appreciate about this thing is I’m being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me and anyone who looks like me. So thank you, Dan."

6. Tonya Harding for None of the Wins

Tonya harding for none of the wins
Allison Janney won for her role in I, Tonya, a movie that paints the former figure skater as a victim. The winner then gave Harding, who was in attendance, a shout-out. Isn't this still the same person who has admitted she knew ahead of time of a planned attack against Nancy Kerrigan?!? Perhaps she doesn't deserve such honor and recognition.

Oprah Winfrey Delivers the Speech Everyone is Talking About

Oprah Winfrey inspired two things at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night:

  1. An entire nation.
  2. Talk that she will run for President in 2020.

The latter point may be mere conjecture and a complete fantasy.

But the former is simply a fact.

The 63-year-old icon and received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at last night's ceremony, an honorary award bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.

It's safe to say Oprah has made a lot of those, isn't it?

She accepted the trophy on a night whose major focus was on the #MeToo Movement and the topic of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

“It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first Black woman to be given [this] award,” Winfrey said early on, adding:

“It is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them.”

The crowd gave her the first of many rousing ovations after these words.

At one point, Oprah referenced Recy Taylor, an African-American woman who never received justice after being abducted and gang-raped by six white men in Alabama.

She died 10 days ago.

“I want all the girls watching to know a new day is on the horizon,” she continued.

“And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they are the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say ‘me too’ again.”

Emphasizing the theme of female empowerment, Winfrey also said:

“This year, we became the story. But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry, it’s one that transcends any culture, or workplace...

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men — but their time is up. Their time is up!"

Cue the standing ovation after this line.

And then cue chatter over Oprah running for President in two years.

We aren't about to speculate on that.

But we will encourage you to watch her speech below. It's incredible...
