Of course, bemoaning Hollywood’s idiocy, sexism and short-sightedness is a little like cursing the drought. #futile. Tinseltown heavy-hitters like Meryl Streep have started to take matters into their own hands. Streep, one of the few actresses to keep landing roles despite the passage of time, has funded a screenwriters lab for women writers over 40. Let’s hope that move gets some traction in pop culture, but in the meantime, I think it’s time to follow Schumer’s lead and plan a lovely little Viking funeral for Tomei. Long live Aunt May.

But it was “So You Think You Can Dance” that catapulted him to the forefront of the dance scene. Lazzarini won a $100,000 cash prize, plus the use of a Manhattan penthouse apartment for a year. “‘So You Think’ jump-started my professional career,” he says. “Every dancer has to be patient and wait for that one big break that can open up the floodgates. “I knew that I was going to be fine, and that, at some point, my dance career was going to take off. But the win was something that made my parents proud. They finally saw the culmination of all the money and the time and effort, all the hours in the studio, all the driving. My poor mom used to drive me to Fresno every other weekend for extra dance classes. So this showed them that all they had put into this had paid off.”.

It’s been a heady time. Certainly “Hamilton” mania hit the Bay Area hardest of all with an online ticket frenzy that made “The Book of Mormon” look like a bake sale, scalpers nabbing as much as $14,000 a seat and a daily scamper for lottery tickets. But the excitement lasted long after the curtain dropped on the groundbreaking hip-hop musical. Here are some of the most unforgettable things that came my way over the year. This isn’t a traditional Top Ten list but rather an impressionistic rundown of the 11 most memorable interludes I experienced on the aisle this year.
