Nicole Kidman: ‘I Was Afraid of My Own Power’ — Every year, Women in Film's Crystal + Lucy Awards dinner is a platform for rallying speeches from women in Hollywood. At last night's event in L.A., Nicole Kidman gave a particularly good one, as she accepted the award for Excellence in Film.

Jill Soloway Shares What Ava DuVernay Taught Her -- Vulture — I remember right after Transparent showrunner Jill Soloway was among those honored Tuesday night's Women in Film Awards, and she used the occasion to send a message of solidarity to all the female creators in the room. Addressing fellow honoree Ava DuVernay, Soloway recalled a crucial phone call they'd had in 2013.

Read Tina Fey’s Funny Tribute to Steve Martin -- Vulture — Last night at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, Steve Martin received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute from Mel Brooks. If that's not enough to guarantee a trip to Comedy Prom, Tina Fey killed it, setting the stage for speeches by Amy Poehler, Carl Reiner, Sarah Silverman, Steve Carell, and Martin Short.

40 years since Saigon's fall, napalm attack haunts woman in iconic image — On 8 June 1972, Ho Thi Hien was at her cousin Kim Phuc's house in the village of Trang Bang in South Vietnam. The adults were out when the children heard the plane overhead and fled, trying to outrun their terror. A South Vietnamese Skyraider had just dropped a napalm bomb, propelling civilians down Vietnam's Highway 1.

Vincent Kartheiser on the End of — The final seven episodes of Mad Men will begin to burn off on April 5, and with them, Vulture's annual tradition of decoding Vincent Kartheiser. We gleaned everything we could about Pete Campbell and the rest of the gang walking off into the sunset.

Choreographing Empire’s Sprawling Gospel Number -- Vulture — Embedded in over-the-top story lines and mic-drops are its sincere musical performances. Originally, the season's final two hours were shot as two separate episodes, 11 and 12. The first hour (Episode 11, "Die But Once") focuses on the themes of death, resurrection, belief, and betrayal.

Loneliness -- Vulture — Saturday night at the Human Rights Campaign's Los Angeles gala, Shonda Rhimes gave a thoughtful speech about writing, Shondaland, and the importance of creating diverse representations. She said that her writing basically boils down to one thing: loneliness.

The Empire Cast on the the Bib -- Vulture — Fox screened the first half of Empir e's two-hour season finale for Television Academy members Thursday night in Los Angeles, followed by a Q&A with creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, producer Brian Grazer, showrunner Ilene Chaiken, and the cast: Terrence Howard (Lucious), Taraji P.

Amanda Peet on Togetherness, Game of Thrones -- Vulture — HBO's Togetherness ends its first season tonight, wrapping up eight episodes of sexual, marital, and career tension. But don't expect neat resolution: The dramedy, created by mumblecore kings Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Steve Zissis, hinges on the idea that intelligence, attractiveness, and ambition might not be enough to elevate the torture of daily existence.

Vulture’s Behind-the-Scenes Oscar-Party Timeline — Every year, Vulture sends out a team of L.A. reporters to monitor the scene at every glitzy Oscars pre-party, after-party, and party-party. Herewith, an epic timeline of the week leading up to and following Hollywood's biggest awards show.
