This whole moonlight celebration is so upsetting because of the hate vibes that are going around. Like can't you just be happy that this year the right movie won and be chill and not trash a movie that, surprise, NOT everyone hates. Seriously had it happened to moonlight everyone would be complaining, treat others the way you would want to be treated. Be nice!! No one here is gonna trash moonlight, it's a good film, we're not saying it isn't just because we liked la la land.
i mean i understand where a lot of people are coming from, moonlight is about a gay black boy navigating life and growing up from a perspective that is rarely shown on screen, let alone nominated for academy awards. people are happy it’s getting praise and the respect it deserves. it deserves the awards and people deserve that happiness that comes along with it winning. and la la land must look very bland in comparison to it. i’m aware of that. it’s just my personal opinion that la la land makes me really happy and i also think it’s incredibly well made, the music and cinematography especially is really brilliant filmmaking. i’m not gonna compare them anymore because they couldn’t be more different. they’re on such different levels that they might as well be on different planets. but i do love them both
