+ If you missed last night’s Golden Globes, that’s because NBC didn’t air them because the Hollywood Foreign Press association will not get its shit together re: racism, so the ceremony was conducted in private — no red carpet, no celebs, no presentations — and the winners were announced on Twitter and in press releases. Most exciting: Michaela Jaé Rodriguez was FINALLY recognized for her revolutionary work on Pose, becoming the first trans actress to win a Globe. Her acceptance speech on IG Live made me cry and I bet it will make you cry too. It’s always good to see mainstream press catching up with Autostraddle’s TV Team!
Mj Rodriguez reacts to her #GoldenGlobes win & gives an acceptance speech on IG Live:
"This is for the LGBTQAI, Black, Latina,
Asian [communities], the many multi beautiful colors of the rainbow… This is not just for me, this is for y'all. This is the door that opens for y'all” pic.twitter.com/g6GA6mzmWq

+ Natalie mentioned this in Friday’s Boobs on Your Tube and I’m mentioning it again: After much speculation from press and fans and other players, Sue Bird announced she’s returning to the Storm for another season.
+ ALSO speaking of the greatest ever, LSU retired Seimone Augustus’ jersey last week.

+ Amy Schneider is now only the fourth person — and the first woman — to win more than $1 million on Jeopardy!
+ Netflix is developing a Scott Pilgrim animated series; hopefully we get more into Ramona Flowers’ bisexuality and learn more about her ex Roxie Richter this time!
+ Javicia Leslie is on this week’s Down & Nerdy podcast talking Batwoman, LGBTQ+ rep, and WILLLLDOMOOORE.
+ Prime Video has cancelled I Know What You Did Last Summer, which makes sense ’cause even the gayness couldn’t save it from how terrible it was.
