When Lena Dunham won a Golden Globe for Girls last night, she thanked Chad Lowe in her speech. But why?
In short: In 2000, when Hilary Swank won the Oscar for Boys Don’t Cry, she famously forgot to thank Lowe, her husband. When Dunham made a video with The New Yorker last summer, she forgot to thank Alex Karpovsky (who plays Ray on the show) and, in a tweet, likened it to the Swank-Lowe incident. Lowe responded and revealed himself as a Dunham fan, to which Dunham replied, vowing to mention him should she “ever” win an award. Six months later, here we are!
BTW, Lowe appears to have enjoyed the shoutout:
- White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer repeated claims that the inauguration was the most watched ever. But the numbers (still) don't make sense.
- President Trump signed an executive order that bans foreign organizations that receive US funding from providing abortions.
- Democratic lawmakers say Trump's new hotel in Washington, DC, has lost over $1 million and violates its lease with the government.
