cry me a fuckin river to those of ya’ll who are critical of us laughing at the embarrassment of the la la land cast,, we have to deal with black talent getting snubbed at every award ceremony (if that’s not embarrassing enough) so let us sit back and laugh at this mistake bc this is probably one of the only times we’re gonna win
OKAY OKAY I GEt that it’s great that moonlight won I think it deserves this win 100% but y'all need to be happy with that and chill on la la land because some wonderful people just had the fucking rug pulled out from under them in front of all their friends, family, and the whole damn academy and they were all fucking gracious about it too. You can’t tell me that they deserved that because no one fucking does and if you try to convince me you wouldn’t be completely 100% embarrassed you’re trash. Everyone at the oscars deserves any and all recognition because all the movies this past year were excellent and you need to be happy with that.
Irene Dunne was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for Love Affair (Leo McCarey, 1939), one of five nominations she received without ever winning the award itself.
She’s just one of the many Hollywood legends who never won the gold statuette - Gloria Swanson, Alfred Hitchcock, Judy Garland, Deborah Kerr, Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole, Fritz Lang, Josef von Sternberg, Cecil B. DeMille, Charlie Chaplin, etc. etc.
In case you’re wondering what happened at the Oscars last night. Warren and Faye were given the wrong card. It literally said “Emma Stone - La La Land” because it said best actress. Basically someone gave him the duplicate envelope.
A film with original storytelling about dreamers and their struggles with hardworking producers and directors did not deserve that level of humiliation. No, La La Land didn’t deserve the award. At least not next to Hidden Figures and Lion, but it was still a gorgeous film that inspired a lot of people and that level of a loss is just baffling. The La La Land cast and crew are not sexual predators in power so let’s please stop harassing those who loved it as if they’re supporting CA. Really, it just comes down to perspective, but it’s a choice to be kind.
