Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Who will win the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy?

By Spencer Coile

When you consider all of the funny women working in television,you might think that the past winners in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series race would be competitive.However,with Julie Bowen,Allison Janney,and now Kate McKinnon monopolizing the 2010's with two wins apiece,the other nominees don't seem to stand a chance.(That's not to say there aren't shocking winners every once in a while – look no further than Merritt Wever's win in 2013 forNurse Jackie.) With McKinnon back in the race,can anyone overtake her?

Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

This review was originally published inNathaniel's columnatTowleroad

Remember when Sony rebooted Sam Raimi's take onSpider-Man(2002) withThe Amazing Spider-Man(2012)?Their whole conceit at the time appeared to be "What if you didn't know the story?"so they just told it again.Only everyone actually did know the story.The result was an instantly forgettable retread,useless but for the printing of money.While that may have been the whole point,it left a lousy corporate aftertaste.It took the world gargling with some Marvel Studios mouthwash (aka Captain America: Civil War)to make people excited about Spidey again.

The good news is that the mega corporation appears to have learned from their mistakes.GhostbustersNOW does not moronically assume you don't knowGhostbustersTHEN.Sure,it's the same story again — the Ghostbusters set up shop,refine technobabble gadgets,fight against a supernatural invasion of New York and the bureaucrats that get in their way — but writer/director Paul Feig and his cowriter Katie Dippold (who wroteThe Heattogether) have correctly guessed that the fun of the movie will be in the makeover.

the ladies fighting the (undead) patriarchy

The story gets a new look,freshened up details,and most famously,four female Ghostbusters and a male receptionist in place of the original's four men and a female receptionist;that gender inversion proved more revolutionary that any rational human might have expected becausea lot of manbabieshave been freaking out on the internet ever since...

YNMS: Ghostbusters

As promised weeks ago,the trailer for the female-ledGhostbustersarrived yesterday.!Twitter immediately erupted with a wide range of responses from unbridled enthusiasm to outright disdain.Of course there were plenty of "problematic"call-outs,which can be expected like clockwork these days to almost any property seeking broad appeal.

One of the more delightful elements of the trailer is its instant gif-ability.As if we didn't already get new comedy gold from star Kate McKinnon this past weekend at the Indie Spirit Awards - including the delightfulCarolspoof - she emerged as the clear audience favorite already.How many times did everyone see this flawless moment today?:

Speaking of best shots,don't forget Hit Me With Your Best Shot returns next week with the originalGhostbusters!You can stream it now for free on Amazon Prime and it's also available on iTunes and Netflix rental.Make sure to send us a link so that we can include you in the fun!

We'll break down the  Yes No Maybe So of it all,with the trailer after the jump...
