The breakout performance of the year

This year's Oscar race for Best Actress has a very unlikely frontrunner. Molly Shannon, best known for the hyper-weird misfits she played on Saturday Night Live, emerged as the breakout star at this year's Sundance thanks to her stunning performance in Other People, where she plays a woman suffering from terminal cancer. Jesse Plemons, of Friday Night Lights, Fargo, and Breaking Bad fame, stars as her gay, comedy writer son who moves home to take care of her. The film is based on the real life experience of director Chris Kelly, who's best known for his work as a writer on SNL and Broad City.

The first trailer reveals a film that promises big laughs and major tears, thanks to what looks like a career-redefining performance from Shannon. Another actor to look out for is Maude Apatow, who began acting in her father Judd's films, and looks to be blossoming into a major talent. She's joined by Zach Woods, Bradley Whitford, June Squibb, and Paul Dooley, in a stellar supporting cast. 

 Other People hits theaters on September 9, just in time for awards season. Watch the trailer below.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
