What a week! The Critics Choice Awards were Sunday, the Emmys were Monday, and I am tired! We also brought you a full slate at Drinks With Broads: We hosted an Emmys live thread! All subscribers got our take on the weekend’s awards shows; paid subscribers got a lengthy, multi-part screed about phone games, their ads, and why Gardenscapes are such LIARS. Also, random shit I’ve been influenced to buy on Insta. We also started recapping Traitors!
Don’t forget to vote on best and worst dressed at the Emmys!

Vanity Fair wonders, Is Barbie in Oscar Danger? It’s definitely not gonna win any big ones, IMO.

Good and useful, at The Stripe: What to Bring to a Dinner Party. (I usually just bring wine! It’s good to mix it up. The candy cigarettes idea is a stroke of genius. [Depending on your audience.])
