I always love specifically recognizing women who win prestigious accolades. Women are not new to the realm of film and television, but it’s always empowering to watch a woman win in a profession that is usually dominated by men.

I was very pleased with everyone who won, and felt that it was much deserved. A great example of a much-deserved win was the Golden Globes awarded to Lena Dunham and the show Girls.

Girls, which premiered this past year, opened to negative and positive criticisms. At first, critics were not fans of the provocatively realistic depiction of 20-something year old females living in New York City, but the show grew on critics, who named it a top comedy series this year, with Lena Dunham (the show’s creator, writer, and lead actress) beating out Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a Best Actress Winner.

It’s truly inspiring to watch someone who was not expected to win anything beat out the rest of the competition, and I hope that all of you use Dunham’s wins as a means of motivation.

Here are the rest of the female winners of the 2013 Golden Globes:

5 Reasons Why Boy Friends Are Way Better Than Actual Boyfriends

Despite the ever-worrisome presence of “the friend zone” and the potential for our other halves to become jealous, friendships — with people of any gender — are very important to Generation-Y.

The Female Hunger Games: 17 Ways Women Try To Outdo Each Other Way Too Often

Unlike our physically aggressive male counterparts, when it comes to girl-on-girl competition, we prefer torturing our opponent with social mind games rather than an all-out brawl. Some believe this passive form of fighting is an evolutionary tactic to protect our uteruses, but in reality, it’s just way more entertaining to watch (see: Bravo reality television, […]
