Giving you the rundown on what we’ve been talking about at the water cooler this week.

At the Golden Globe, Tracee Ellis Ross made history by winning a Globe that no black woman has won in more than 30 years and Meryl Streep gave an insightful speech stating Hollywood is full of foreigners.

Everyone responded like, “ummm read a history book.”
