I just really need a Frank Underwood fan video with this as the theme song.
My roomie just asked how to spell exercise and my other roomie spelled it and then asked if she meant exercise or exorcise.
I live with the best people.
I have the best life.
WHY IS A CIS MAN GETTING AN AWARD FOR PLAYING A TRANS WOMAN
because that’s what ACTING is you fucking stupid child
you know how we look back at shakespearean plays and point out how stupid it is that men played all the parts of women
this is the same thing
this idea that cis men can do a better job then women in this case specifically trans women
In the script, Solo’s response to Leia’s declaration of love for him was written as “I love you, too.” It’s now lore that Ford changed it to “I know.” But if you read the transcript of Ford’s conversation with Kershner on the set, you can see that Ford wasn’t just being a smartass. He put a lot of thought into that line. “But if she says, ‘I love you,’ and I say, ‘I know,’ it’s beautiful and it’s acceptable and it’s funny,” he pleaded. “The point is, I’m not worried about myself anymore; I’m worried about her.”
I have an urge to go on a huge happy rant about dialogue and how awesome it can be, but instead I’m just going to sigh romantically.

It’s no secret that I am a Lupita Nyong’o fan girl. She is gorgeous, graceful, and certifiably ***flawless.
The actress gained worldwide attention for her heart-wrenching portrayal of the enslaved Patsey in Steve McQueen’s much-praised 12 Years A Slave. Having been thrust into the Hollywood spotlight only months ago, Lupita is notably reserved in the public eye—but her powerful presence speaks volumes about the ever-expanding ways in which Black women are complicating archaic notions about our femininity.
Lupita’s Patsey is markedly different from both Mistress Epps, her master’s wife, and from Kerry Washington’s delicate Broomhilda in Django Unchained. Dark-skinned and long-suffering, Patsey is not afforded the benefit of Broomhilda’s damsel in distress rescue. It is, however, worth noting that both women were targets of sexual violence from the white men with power over them, neither of them immune to the Jezebel stereotype that deemed their black female bodies “unrapeable.”
