4 hours ago
"That was deliberate. That was absolutely deliberate," Winslet told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Saturday. "I remember being told, 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.' And I remember turning around and saying, 'No, I won't. No, I won't.' And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him? »

John Oliver discussed the Equifax security breach on Sunday's Last Week Tonight, outlining how the credit reporting agency could have prevented the cybersecurity disaster.

This week's episode ("Why Me?") tries a different but equally effective tactic: From the big-picture meta-plot to the individual storylines, everything seems headed the same way all at once. It's the first installment of David Simon and George Pelecanos's period piece that doesn't feel like bits and pieces stitched together, but a cohesive whole.
You've got to imagine that's how it feels to some of the characters involved, »
