"We are all, everyone in this room, so fortunate."
FUCKING QUEEN. SHE UNDERSTANDS HER PRIVELAGE AND SHINES LIGHT ON LESS PRIVILEGED PEOPLE.
Ellen gives Edgar the pizza guy at the Oscars a $1,000 tip (x)
I love when celebrities just give away huge amounts of money to random people because $1,000 can mean so much to somebody who works a minimum wage job.
we would LOVE to see women-centric films if they weren’t written and directed by a man with a pretty gross history of abusing them
Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for portraying a real life slave, and the first thing she did was thank Patsy for her inspiration.
Jared Leto wins an Oscar for portraying a trans woman, and doesn’t mention trans women at all.
I think the point makes itself.
Dudes. Calm down.
First of all, that’s an easy retroactive complaint to have, isn’t it? If Nyong’o HADN’T thanked Patsey, no one would say that. By that demented logic, we should also hate on every winner who didn’t mention the atrocities in Venezuela and Ukraïne, which Leto did. Not to mention that these are things that are happening to people TODAY as opposed to the long dead of times past (No, I’m not diminishing their suffering or Nyongo’s comments. We need to remember.)
And the sudden hate he gets for portraying a transgender character while being a white straight male himself… That’s just fucking retarded on every level. Not to mention that it can be seen as kind of insulting to the transgender community. As if they are a specific people incapable of being inhabited by a white heterosexual male on screen. Felicity Huffman didn’t get this kind of shit strewn at her for her role in Transamerica… why should he?
Personally I thought McConnoheeeya (???) speech was the loopy fucked up one but who am I. I mean, that shit was chasing Charlie Sheen.
So this is the best!
Kevin Spacey looks like every drunk uncle ever.
I think it’s a good idea just to have Ellen host every year. Amusing and chill as fuck without ever being annoying or taking cheap shots. Hellz yeah.
