disney circle

EVERYONE, WE HAVE AN EMERGENCY

My Mom just got the DisneyCircle, which means she can use it to track EVERYHING we do on our phones and under the wifi. She CANNOT know my sister and I are on tumblr. This is our only outlet for finding out about politics, lgbtq stuff, and while that might sound bad (bc tumblr is a hellsite) it is literally the only option we have.

Please spread this. If ANYONE knows how to bypass the DisneyCircle, PLEASE MESSAGE ME, SHOOT ME AN ASK, OR REPLY/ADD IT TO THIS POST. If u can’t reach me send it to @many-many-bubbles or one of my blogs (which I will reblog this to)

We don’t know how much time we have, please help us. We need to know 1) How to bypass the Circle so it doesn’t see what we do and 2) Does Incognito still work or can the Circle find that out too? PLEASE HELP.

PR WIN: Emma Watson Is MTV’s Token Inclusion Stuntwoman With Being First Genderless Best Actor Recipient

So I actually didn’t realize that the MTV Awards were happening or that Watson was up for nomination. I don’t watch television on television, so I didn’t see anything promoting the event.

Anyway, I’ve been receiving a LOT of asks that are generally about her winning this award. Many stans are also rushing here to validate her success as an actress because she won this Popcorn Award in a Disney film with a guaranteed audience and obvious guaranteed financial success.

That being said, I think it would be interesting to comment on the fact that the UN-appointed gender equality ambassador who made “Beauty and the Beast” into “Emma Watson and how she made Belle a Feminist” won the first-ever combined-gender award for Best Actor.

I have basically stated my point in the previous paragraph. The other actors she was up against are all better actors than her  (Taraji P. Henson, Daniel Kaluuya, James McAvoy, Hailee Steinfeld ), yet she is the one who won for best actor. To me, it is interesting in more than the fact that she received very mixed reviews on her acting for BatB (and shall we go into her abysmal acting reviews in “The Circle”? Nah.).

This is interesting to me because strictly from a public relations-marketing point of view, Emma Watson was the perfect person to give this award. Not for her acting. But because she so heavily (too heavily) promoted Belle not as the character, but how Emma Watson changed her from apparently not being feminist enough for Emma Watson to being super feminist and strong and smart! Of course the great feminist, equality preaching (while evading taxes), fresh-faced celebrity who made an image based on [internalized] misogyny, would win this award that helps promote MTV as being open-minded, accepting, and supportive of equality. Part of this is simply humor and sarcasm, surely.

Whereas her stans believe she won this because she was just super awesome at playing as Belle, I suggest people think a little deeper on this. In my opinion, Emma Watson only won this award (which is not equivalent to an Oscar btw, stans) because it suited the social perspective MTV is trying to promote. And in turn, it helps Watson and superficially boosts her feminist superstar status.

Here is what she said during her interview, which was well-memorized or just read from the prompter. I can see why people thought it was too long or really boring after such a fun little musical number:

“Wow. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Firstly, I feel I have to say something about the award itself. The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.

This is very meaningful to me. Both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia [Kate Dillon, who presented the award]. Thank you for educating me in such — in such an inclusive, patient, and loving way. Thank you so much. I think I’m being given this award for a performance as an actor, but it doesn’t feel like that what it’s really for, although I am very grateful if you did think that I did a good job because the whole singing part of the situation was pretty terrifying — yeah, not kidding about that part!

But more seriously, I think I am being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. The villagers in our fairy tale wanted to make Belle believe that the world is smaller than the way she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her — that her curiosity and passion for knowledge and her desire for more in life were grounds for alienation. I loved playing someone who didn’t listen to any of that. I’m so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does.

I want to thank Linda Woolverton for writing the original Belle, Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont for writing what the animated movie was based on, and Paige O’Hara for playing Belle in the original. And I want to thank every single person who voted for me. Thank you so much. Taraji [P. Henson], I can’t see you, but Daniel [Kaluuya], James [McAvoy], Hailee [Steinfeld], all of you, it’s a privilege to have been nominated alongside you. Lastly I want to thank any one and everyone who had anything to do with giving me this opportunity and for supporting me on that journey. You know who you are, and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you so, so much.”

Oof. That’s quite long. I suppose it’s good she got it all out here since she wasn’t going to the Oscars with that speech. 

I liked her dress, though. Fun, even though she stayed with the whole monochromatic theme.

Thoughts?
