Thoughts on Emma Stone?

I love her, and I’m so happy she just won Best Actress!! Her role in that Woody Allen film was so regrettable, but I understand why she took it as a young actress (see Cate Blanchett), and we wouldn’t have many actors to enjoy if we expected them to be purely unproblematic. She’s young, and I truly believe she’s doing her best. And in La La Land, she gave a great performance. 

“moonlight is giving the gays what they deserve after carol and brokeback mountain were snubbed” okay but consider that 1) moonlight is a movie about black lgbt people specifically, 2) this was a win for black people and black lgbt especially, and 3) brokeback mountain and carol are literally white-af movies (and cate blanchett is a woody-allen supporting bitch) so like 

what the fuck lmao

“Their eyes met at the same instant, Therese glancing up from a box she was opening, and the woman just turning her head so she looked directly at Therese. She was tall and fair, her long figure graceful in the loose fur coat that she held open with a hand on her waist. Her eyes were gray, colorless, yet dominant as light or fire, and, caught by them, Therese could not look away. She heard the customer in front of her repeat a question, and Therese stood there, mute. The woman was looking at Therese, too, with a preoccupied expression, as if half her mind were on whatever is was she meant to buy here, and though there were a number of salesgirls between them, Therese felt sure the woman would come to her. Then Therese saw her walk slowly toward the counter, heard her heart stumble to catch up with the moment it had let pass, and felt her face grow hot as the woman came nearer and nearer.”
