You know there’s not enough diversity on TV when someone can say “the black guy” and everyone knows who you’re talking about
I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.
where can i get one of those kim kardashian or paris hilton jobs where they just kind of pay you to exist
you mean one of those jobs where someone leaks a private sex tape, and after you’ve been humiliated and exposed to the entire nation and mocked and belittled for daring to have sex with anyone, you work really hard as an entrepreneur and entertainer and still get considered not respectable?
when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
i think it’s really interesting and cool actually that language has shifted so that ‘said’ implies that you’re quoting, while ‘was like’ means ‘i’m doing a general impression of this dude’. i mean you can’t really harsh on someone when ‘she was like aaah!’ means exactly that, doesn’t it? she was doing something very similar to the particular scream being made. so, ‘like’ indicates that you’re dealing with generalities and inexact terms, and want to convey the gist of things rather than focussing on exact phrasing and technical details—which is pretty great for young people, who are still developing cognitively and thus not always great at stringing a coherent sentence together.

Really, what does it take to get an Oscar nomination? Apparently it’s not enough to pretty much have to carry an entire film on your 17-year-old shoulders, to be the only human on screen for most of the film, and emote with a Royal Bengal tiger. The Oscars nominations did not overlook Life of Pi. It garnered 11 nominations. But Suraj Sharma, the young Pi, was certainly overlooked. Forget Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck. This was THE Oscar snub.
