You know those tall, leggy beauties that normally carry the Oscar trophies so the stars can present them? They’ve been replaced this year by aspiring filmmakers. Six college students from across the country won a contest to help present the Oscar statuettes this year.
“This tradition of the buxom babe that comes out and brings the trophy to the presenter to give to the winner seemed to be very antiquated and kind of sexist, too,” said Neil Meron, co-producer of this year’s Academy Awards. “They’re just there to be objectified. Why can’t we have people who actually care about film and are the future of film be the trophy presenters?”
with my theatre friends. We all share a major that gets a tad bit stressful—well, more like A LOT stressful—at times. So we decided to de-stress…by watching LORD OF THE RINGS. Oh my goodness. Haven’t seen Fellowship, or any of them for that matter, in a while. Plus, it was exciting thinking about how we’re all going to the midnight premiere of THE HOBBIT. Just. EXCITEMENT. With dressing up and everything. Then we add pizza, and some delicious ice cream, to that mix, and it’s the kind of thing I’ve needed. Now the prospect of homework—the likes of Theatre History, Scene Painting, CAD, and German—that I have to look forward to this weekend. Oh, and a little something called strike, for the musical I assistant lighting designed, on Sunday. Yayyyyyy *sarcasm*. But there always is that welding tutorial in the afternoon…later today, technically. I’m actually super excited for that. Ahhh, another Friday, come and gone.
If you can find a single fictional villain that I don’t love at least a little bit then honestly you deserve a fucking trophy.
Is it just me or is hating Umbridge the unifying quality of the Harry Potter fandom? Like, whether you ship Hermione with Ron or Harry, whether you ship Harry/Ginny or not, however you feel about Snape, whatever, everyone hates Umbridge
Yep. Even people I know who don’t read the books and hardly have seen the movies hate her. But then again, she deserves all the haters. Oh, except if she’s asking if you got her text, ‘cause Joe Walker is just that awesome.
