W: Sophia Loren, 86, is one of just two survivors on AFI's list of 100 Greatest Hollywood Stars of the Golden Age, the other being 94-year-old Sidney Poitier. Unlike Poitier, who hasn't acted in 20 years, Loren came back with a satisfying drama on Netflix in 2020, The Life Ahead, directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti (b. 1973). Why isn't she talked about as a potential Oscar nominee? Why did the Globes overlook this great star?

Maybe next time! In her W interview, the icon says:

I'd like to go on forever, because I like very much to play. I like very much to have these kinds of people around me. And the lights. And my son.

HUFF POST: For some reason, Republicans and not a few Democrats are losing their minds over what they see as the "censoring" of Dr. Seuss. Is the late author (1904-1991) really being canceled, though? Nope. His own estate announced it was pulling just six of this titles — and for the very good reason that they contain extremely dated racial imagery. Anyone pissed off that a book with a "Chinaman" as an exotic sight won't be published anew is either a racist or really insensitive to racism ... which is a racist. The books will not be missed, and Dr. Seuss and his other works will continue to be available.
