So so happy this is getting picked up. I really hope it gets good distribution, cause I think this story is one everyone should hear about. I recently watched all three “Paradise Lost” documentaries back to back, which chronicles the entire history of this case from 1993 to 2011. It is a really powerful story that I haven’t been able to shake since I saw the movies.
Hey now. Meryl has said publicly several times throughout the course of the awards season that she thought Viola deserved that award, and has done nothing but praised her both as an artist and a person. Pitting the two individuals (and friends) against…
This is part of what I was trying to say, I am just not as articulate.
I’m sorry, this might be unpopular with some of my people on here, but I don’t think it is some travesty that Meryl won over Viola.
Viola was good, but on the whole “The Help” wasn’t. And while the Iron Lady wasn’t fantastic, Meryl was in every single shot of that film, carrying the entire thing on her shoulders. I think that Viola didn’t have as much screen time and maybe voters felt that Meryl had to bear more responsibility for the success of the movie.
It would’ve been great to see Viola win, but it is just as great to see Meryl win. Honestly, I was rooting for Rooney over all of them anyway.
And while I fully understand that the majority of voters are white and male, I just don’t think that it has to be “oh, they are racist for not giving it to her”. I get that SOME voters COULD be racially influenced, but maybe voters really did just think her performance was better. People might think that is naive, but I don’t know, just my opinion.
I am at an Oscar party with some of my favorite people that I rarely get to see, plus I am getting pretty spotty cell reception tonight, so I have decided that I’m going to stay off of tumblr during the Oscars.
“It’s not that Chris Brown is categorically unforgivable. It’s more that he’s no longer an acceptable vehicle for corporations to use to sell products to young adults. On a human level, I’m more than willing to eventually forgive Chris Brown, once he seems genuinely remorseful and changed (which, at this point, he definitely does not). But there’s no obligation to continue supporting him as a pop star. Chris Brown would not exist without millions of dollars of production and marketing and styling and whatever else. He’s not some troubled genius that exists on his own, creating pop music in a corner. He’s just a handsome and fit guy who can dance and sing pretty well. There are plenty of other people who are more than capable of filling that role and who haven’t beat a woman into a state of unconsciousness. Why not give one of them a chance to be rich and famous instead?”—
You gave us some place to go./I never said thank you for that./I thought I might get one more chance./What would you think of me now,so lucky, so strong, so proud?/I never said thank you for that, now I’ll never have a chance./And if you were with me tonight,/I’d sing to you just one more time./A song for a heart so big,/god wouldn’t let it live./May angels lead you in.
New glee dude is Samuel Larsen, he was the winner of the Glee Project with Damian McGinty (Rory). He annoyed the HELL out of me on the show but ya, I can see that he fits in. Although I've stopped watching Glee haha. It's a cute performance tho.
Ohhhh, yah I didn’t watch the Glee project. See , I like Rory but it’s like they just gave him the part to pop his head in every once in a while, so I wonder if they will actually use this guy.
I wish I didn’t watch Glee anymore. Every week it makes me angry, but I just can’t quit!
I found out yesterday that my iTunes account has been compromised. Someone made purchases using my account, and somehow they must have rerouted everything away from my email address, cause I can’t sign in at all and it won’t even recognize my account. And now I had to do all this roundabout stuff just to try and get it fixed. I finally have a case claim in with them, but have yet to hear back. I just want my freaking account back. Grrrr. Why do people have to do shitty things like hack other people’s accounts? So lame.
