When I was a kid, the Oscars felt like this impossibly larger-than-life thing. The first time I felt like I had a horse in the race was in 1990. I was 10, and The Little Mermaid was up for best song and best score. They did that crazy “Under the Sea” number with the late, great Geoffrey Holder and dudes in scuba outfits tap-dancing with flippers. We had a tradition of recording the show on our VHS, and I must have watched it a million and a half times. There was also an amazing Chuck Workman montage at the beginning of the show that depicted 100 years of filmmaking with classic scores. I was already in love with movies, but this was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen in my life. (x)
Oh my god mom my life is an actual fanfiction.. I'm the closeted popular girl™.. and I'm dating the also closeted actual ball of human fluff nerd.. we met in AP classes and we're both helping out with summer activities for the kids and one thing led to another. Now I just have to figure out how to tell my BFF, I know she won't mind I'm gay but we're the type of best friends who cuddle and have movie nights all the time and I don't want to lose that (it's all platonic tho)How should I tell her???
