The New York Times Celebrates Hollywood's Year of the Heroine Worship

Over on the NYTimes, the Hollywood issue of the Times magazine is celebrating 2012 as the year of cinematic heroine worship, lining up an array of stunning women for a series of stunning photos to complement A.O. Scott's piece on the rise of female heroes. Scott obviously stops well short of proclaiming that there's been a role reversal between the genders, and in rounding up the Year of Heroine Worship, he revisits the preposterous debate about women not being as funny as men (spearheaded this year, I believe, by that doofus Adam Corolla), the expansion of meaty roles available to women, and -- of course -- Lena Dunham's voice in all of this in 2012.

It's a great piece, and a visually splendid slideshow. Here's a sampling of the images.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
