Your daily dose of cultural currency.

Women at the Oscars
What you need to know: In the wake of widespread dissatisfaction with the lack of diversity in this year's Oscars nominations, Karen Kemmerle observes a few things to celebrate about the women nominated in the Best Actress/Best Supporting Actress categories. Like Reese Witherspoon who, at the helm of her own production company, is in just the right position to bring more women into the moviemaking game. 
Tribeca says: Fingers crossed for another female Best Director winner soon! Ava we are looking at you. 


Mad Men at the Museum of Moving Image
What you need to know: Ahead of Mad Men's final season premiere on April 5th, the Museum of the Moving Image will host an exhibit of some of the best pieces from the show's iconic art direction. In collaboration with Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, MOMI will host costumes, props, research material, and even large-scale sets from some of the most memorable Mad Men moments.
Tribeca says: Not to be missed! Mark your calendars for March 14. 

Jose Antonio Vargas and the LA Times
What you need to know: In a "vertical" collaboration between immigration advocate Jose Antonio Vargas and the LA Times, the upcoming #EmergingUS is envisioned to be a multimedia platform that engages both ongoing conversations about immigration and multiculturalism. Read the project title as either Emerging Us or Emerging U.S. to get a sense of this new venture's promise.
Tribeca says: Since the NYTimes printed Jose Antonio Varga's original "My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant," here's hoping they follow suit.
