Among this year’s Oscar acceptance speeches, “the ‘12 Years a Slave’ crew had to acknowledge that they were riding to victory on the legacy of slavery … And Cate Blanchett had to find a way of thanking a director who’s not exactly Mr. Popular.” How did everyone fare? http://nyr.kr/1jMyUFS

I actually just looked this up and found out some interesting things.
Young MacGuffin speaks in a North East Doric dialect which obviously is hard to understand. Originally he was going to just speak gibberish but his voice actor, Kevin McKidd, suggested he try a few lines in Doric and Pixar loved it and kept it. Found a couple translations too, but only one of them applies to this gif set and that’s the third one after Merida gave her speech about letting them choose who they marry:
“It’s just not fair making us fight for the hand of a girl who doesn’t want anything to do with it. You know?”
OH MY GOD
this changes everything
ALL of the things.
i understand being excited for lupita but like. stop turning your love for lupita into hate for jennifer lawrence. youre just pitting women against each other and just doing what men want instead let’s all join together to shit on the fact that the academy is almost entirely white dudes
This is very true. And I wholeheartedly believe it and Jennifer Lawrence has powerful opinions about image and honesty in Hollywood. However, there are two possibilities here:
1. Lupita wins Best Actress.
2. You’re all racists.
"possibility number one: 12 years a slave wins best picture
possibility number two: you’re all racists”
…idk why you’re laughing that’s just about the truest thing anyone’s said all night
I understand why Frozen's “Let It Go” is going to win the Best Song category, but I wish “Happy” (Despicable Me, Pharrell Williams)would win, if only because it doesn’t come from a film that people think is feminist but isn’t really.
Jared Leto wins the speech for the Oscars to this moment.
I swear, E!’s red carpet coverage gets more and more annoying every year.
All I want is Ellen’s Wit. I don’t care about the frosty blue gown that Amy Adam’s wore at the Oscar’s last year being described by people who can only talk about a woman’s body. Apparently her body of work - the reason she’s there - (as in, her acting) is less important?
That’s it. I’ve got it. It started off as the sink fandom, but it evolved until finally, not the shower fandom, not the stuff fandom,
but the decor fandom
Ladies and gentlemen, the decor fandom.
decor fandom for lyfe
maybe i wear lipstick so that
you will see my pretty pink mouth
wrapping around a coffee cup lid
and be distracted enough not to notice
that i am intelligent and powerful;
maybe i draw my brows into high arches
so you will look at my unimpressed skepticism
and overlook my spiteful glare
as a trick of my silly, girlish routine.
maybe i wear my heels so high and thin
so that i grasp your attention with the sway of my hips
as i listen to the click-clack-click against the floor
and know that if you should try to overpower me
i walk on sharpened knives.
maybe when i laugh at your worthless jokes
i am really baring my fangs
waiting patiently for the day
that i sink them into your neck.
i am not made of porcelain pleasantries;
you will find that these things are my armor
to keep you at a distance
so you do not step on me and shatter
my fragile control.
i am not a husk — i am not wilting.
i am turning my head
so that the fire blazing through my eyes
does not catch on the accelerant of your sweaty palms
and burn your bones to dust.
i am not your pretty girl;
i am a fury, a faerie, a phoenix —
a forest of werewolves and wendigos
that will carve out your chest
so that the next time i paint my pretty pink lips
i will taste the copper tang of your dying breaths.
