Lindsay Ellis (born: November 24, 1984 (1984-11-24) [age 35]) is an American media critic, film critic, and YouTuber. From 2008 to 2014, Ellis was part of the Channel Awesome production company, under the moniker The Nostalgia Chick, a counterpart to the Nostalgia Critic. In 2014 she ended that affiliation, and started to focus more on long-form video essays, frequently about Walt Disney Fims films.

Other notable works include a long-running series examining the Trasnformer film francise and a series about the production of The Hobbit trilogy and its effect on the New Zealand film industry. Her "Loose Canon" series explores derivations of literary and film characters over time.

Along with her friends Elisa Hansen and Antonella Inserra, she wrote Awoken, a paranormal romance parody of Twilight featuring a woman falling in love with Cthula under the alias Serra Elinsen. In 2010, she wrote and directed the documentary short film "The A-Word" about women's experience with abortion. Ellis is also host of the "It's Lit!" web series for PBS which explores trends in American Literature.

Ellis received her BA in Film Studies from New York University in 2007 and MFA from USC School of Cinematic Arts in 2011. In 2018, Ellis got married.
