  1. binging One Day at a Time season three and rooting for Brandi Carlisle and Linda Perry on the Grammys.
    Linda could make music industry history on Sunday night. The former 4 Non Blondes front woman is the first woman to be nominated on her own for the Non-Classical Producer of the Year Grammy since 1999–and no woman has ever taken home the award.

  2. Maybe there was a mix up – but I thought the award for the coolest multimedia layout would in my opinion go to the BBC piece about the lesbians in Burundi. Very fascinating and illustrated perfectly.

    The 25 Most Influential Movie-piece from Vanity Fair is interesting as well, but not sure how its multimedia layout is standing out from a normal article?
