One Week Out- A Last Look at the 2013 Oscars

I left town the morning after the Oscars on a much needed vacation.  While I wasn't writing last week (and a big thanks goes out to Women and Hollywood writer Kerensa Cadenas for taking care of the site while I was gone), I didn't shut off my brain completely.  I was able to read all the post Oscar commentary from a different perspective, one where I could process it without having to immediately react.
