No kidding: You won’t forget Melissa McCarthy in Oscar-worthy …

Hollywood superstition states that no film title should end with a question mark, even when it would be punctually correct.

The thinking goes that such a framing gives hacky critics an easy way to answer with something snarky. (Note titles such as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” are questions but the question mark does not appear, as an example.) Don’t worry — I am not going to take the bait here.

Marielle Heller’s “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” ignores this convention as well as all the other clichés that often doom biopics, and offers not only an intimate look at the odd corners of the literary world but also puts funny lady Melissa McCarthy in the early running as this year’s best actress. No kidding.

McCarthy plays Lee Israel, a bestselling writer facing hard times. Israel’s current focus is a bio on a legendary vaudevillian, a subject that interests no one but her. Israel’s agent (Jane

Would You Pay $600 for Sharon Tate’s 51-Year-Old False Eyelashes?

The legacy of actress and model Sharon Tate has captivated the minds of film buffs and true crime enthusiasts alike ever since her tragic death at the hands of the Manson family in 1969, and interest in Tate’s tragic story is at an all-time high ever since Quentin Tarantino announced his upcoming Manson-era movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Now, at long last, the property from her estate is up for auction, in case you need some authentic props for your Valley of the Dolls cosplay.

This Is What Wrongful Conviction Does to a Family

Debbie Sue Carter, 21, pretty and vivacious, had just moved into her first apartment in the tiny town of Ada, Oklahoma, where she was born and raised. It was October 8, 1982, and she was coming into her own as an adult. But Debbie still came home regularly to see her mother, Peggy, her two younger sisters and her Aunt Glenna, who lived one block away with Debbie’s little cousin, Christy, who was 8 years old.

In early December, Debbie came to Peggy’s house to do her laundry. That night, as she snuggled next to her mother in bed, Peggy recalled, “she wrapped them long legs around me,” and Peggy teased her, “Debbie Sue, get off of me or I’m gonna tell all of your friends you sleep with your mama.” Debbie said, “I don’t care who you tell,” and she slept in her mother’s bed that night.
