Since all I did yesterday was bitch and moan about - deservedly, mind you - Laura Dern and Mike White and everybody even tangentially related to Enlightened getting the snub, I figure I'll give a little love to one of the things they got right today - the noms for Lena Dunham and her lovely little thing called Girls. EW caught up with Dunham yesterday to find out how she took the terrific news and the whole chat's a corker but I especially loved this bit:
EW: The show was also the target of some pretty harsh criticism and commentary at times. Do you feel a little vindicated? I would.Lena Dunham: I mean, I try not to think in that revenge sort of way. But I do have to admit that it is a nice feeling, when you have been the victim of criticism, to have this validation is very satisfying. I wish I didn’t have so many visions of, like, myself talking to Joan Rivers or making someone who didn’t want to hook up with me in college cry. But that’s the darkest part of me that I try not to indulge. And that’s the reason I love Taylor Swift songs.
