For fans of the inimitable Maya Rudolph, this illustrated collection of humorous essays and fun extras makes the case for the versatility and star power of the SNL alum, actress, and singer, from the co-host of the popular podcast Thirst Aid Kit.
Maya Rudolph is a true chameleon. She can do a perfect impression of Donatella Versace on Saturday Night Live, sing like Prince in her tribute band Princess, turn a rote job as a presenter at an awards show into a viral moment, give us iconic comedy moments in movies like Bridesmaids (we’ll never look at a wedding dress the same way), and make us invested in her friendships with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Kristen Wiig and her marriage to Paul Thomas Anderson. Yet in her 20-plus years in the entertainment industry, Maya hasn’t won any major awards, has only appeared solo on a handful of magazine covers, and has never been given the opportunity to helm a major network show. She’s an icon who hasn’t received the icon treatment–and we’re here to fix that. Composed of five critical essays and fun extras, For Your Consideration: Maya Rudolph makes the case for why you should care about her legendary career, from SNL to The Good Place, and consider her one of the greatest comedians of her generation.

Along the way, he has transcended the ironic gaze of the internet to become the true object of its affection, prompting a cultural phenomenon known as the Keanussance.
Composed of five critical essays and fun extras, For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves looks at the distinct phases of the legendary actor’s career, from Bill and Ted to the John Wick franchise, and examines the ways in which Keanu strives to be excellent and kind in work and life.
