Happy Awards Day! Yet another made up holiday to celebrate who knows what! But it’s good, it brings us together, it makes people smile, so you know, get into it! Host (or attend) the party of your dreams, or don’t – you do you!
Here’s some good news to go with the day of celebration!
+ If you need an awards show to get behind, might I suggest The Brittani’s, the award show dreamed up, curated, created, and hosted by Brittani Nichols?

+ Looking for a movie to watch? Might I suggest Birds of Prey?
+ Plus, if you see it, you get to see Jurnee Smollett-Bell, whom Autostraddle senior editor Carmen Phillips loved.
I’m a long time Harley Quinn fan, so nothing was keeping me from seeing #BirdsOfPrey opening night. BUT SHOUT OUT TO JURNEE SMOLLET!!! Growing up with @jurneesmollett means that I sometimes forget what a singular talent she is. Her Black Canary damn near steals the movie. pic.twitter.com/ZODQdCEOyQ

+ Do Alison Roman cooking videos count as feminist films?? Maybe so!
+ The New York Philharmonic’s ‘Project 19’ began recently. It’s a project to highlight 19 female composers to mark a century of suffrage.
Happy Black History Month! I hope your week is filled with great things and that you work at your desk and not on your bed, and that your tax refund comes in earlier that you expected it to, and that you have time for a bath every single day, if you want one. Okay, I want those things for me, but also, like if you wanted, we could share a week and you could also take a bath every day and work at a desk and manifest some money, you know? Do what you want! You’re your own person and I believe in you. See you next week, bye!
