Hey champs, this week we’re here to talk about Awards Season! That beautiful time of year when beautiful people put on beautiful outfits and sit around in a beautiful Hollywood theatre to win awards for some usually mediocre movies and TV shows!
My colleague Alyssa noticed that the letters behind Stephanie appear to (but like, obvs do not) spell out DENBO, which reminded us of our favorite(???????) character from The L Word, She-bar entrepreneur Dawn Denbo.
As an homage to our friend Ms. Denbo, as a tribute to how beautiful Stephanie Beatriz looks in that picture, and mostly for no real reason whatsoever, we are dedicating this post to our own unofficial awards ceremony. Dear readers, thank you for attending the inaugural Denbo Awards.

“My first love growing up was the movies. I would see six to eight movies every week with my grandmother, who raised me. And later, when I was a teenager, we got our first television set, and then I got a new love. But what fascinated me was how the stars on the screen could make people laugh, or cry, or maybe both.” — Carol Burnett Carol Burnett accepting the first ever Carol Burnett Award at last nights Golden Globes was my favorite moment of all. I used to use VHS tapes to record her show, and I would laugh until I cried watching her. She’s one of my heroes, and it felt so special to witness everyone celebrating her work in such an incredible way. I was straight up sobbing at the end of her speech. The Carol Burnett Award is the new television equivalent of film’s Cecil B. DeMille Award. Also I wore this fly ass dress to some after parties.
