Terry’s Picks: Minorities Losing Ground in Hollywood, Maggie Smith & HBO’s  Gloria Steinam

Enough already! The recent WGA study shows that women and minorities are actually losing ground in terms of employment as writers in Hollywood.

Loved: Maggie Smith in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Her character is using her retirement to re-invent herself as a business woman.

Can’t wait: to see Marisa Tomei play Gloria Steinam in HBO’s new miniseries. Steinam herself will consult on the project, which centers on the creation of Ms. magazine and the feminist movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
