jimmy's the best!

So here’s what happened with Best Picture for those who missed it:

Warren Beatty somehow was given the envelope for Best Actress instead of Best Picture. When opened, it said the winner was Emma Stone for La La Land. He was confused, then read out La La Land. The crew came on stage to accept the award.

It was then the envelope mistake was discovered and Jimmy Kimmel came out to fix the problem and announce Moonlight as the correct winner.

The La La Land crew took it with incredible grace and cleared the stage for Moonlight. Pretty much went as well as a mistake like this could.

Edit: I wrote this right before bed and forgot to mention Faye Dunaway was the one to actually read out the wrong movie. She thought Warren was trying to draw out the moment (as presenters do at these awards) and didn’t realize he had the wrong card.

Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there. - Meryl Streep 

Happy 68th birthday to the greatest actress of her time.

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: I'm tired of tumblr hating on la la land just because moonlight won. Both are great movies and the deserved the awards. But this blue hell site just wants to be immature and act like la la land was terrible. Of course moonlight definitely deserved best Picture, but you don't need to bash one movie and the people who liked it

Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

My problem is that Jimmy Urine looks like he spent the first 21 years of his life forcibly locked in someone’s basement playing video games and subsisting entirely off of diet coke until one day Steve was running from the cops, broke into the basement to hide, discovered Jimmy, hosed him off with a pressure washer, and then started a band with him, and despite all of this he is the most attractive man I have ever seen
