Congratulations to Viola Davis on her Oscar win for ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’ as Rose Maxson in the film ‘Fences’ (2016) directed by Denzel Washington at the 89th Annual Academy Awards.

Thank you to the Academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist—and thank God I did—because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So, here’s to August Wilson, who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people.

Ok but this win for Moonlight signals something incredible. This win validates queer people of color who for too long have felt trapped by their cultural constructs of masculinity. This tells them that they’re beautiful, and they’re seen, and they’re valued and it’s absolutely beautiful. Congratulations Moonlight and congratulations to all queer people of color who, if only for a moment, get to feel seen.

…there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist and thank god I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.

We finished stewarding in the photo op room and got our photo with Hugh and Bryan.

It was so lovely! I was told Bryan was hugging everyone so tight and it’s absolutely true, I was gonna tell him to hold us tight but I didn’t need it! He’s so sweet and so enthusiastic about everything and he really appreciates us.

I was so glad to see that Hugh looked so comfortable! People were being nice with him, I never saw anybody pulling anything and they were all being kind and respectful which must’ve certainly helped, and I saw him go from positively trembling the first night at the m&g to looking completely at ease now. I remember a couple years back the first Hannibal con and people saying not to hold out hope for Hugh ‘cause he doesn’t do events, but here he is and Bryan said he /wanted/ to be here and my impression is that he’s having a great time and I am just so /glad/.

Thank you for putting two entities in the driving seat: August and God. And they served you well. And to Dan and May Ellis Davis, who were and are the center of my universe, the people who taught me good or bad how to fail, how to love, how to hold, how to lose. My parents—I’m so thankful that God chose you to bring me into this world, to my sisters, my sister Dolores, we were rich white women in the tea party games. Thank you for the imagination. And to my husband and my daughter. My heart, you and Genesis. You teach me every day how to live, how to love, I’m so glad that you are the foundation of my life. Thank you to the academy. Thank you.” - Actor Viola Davis accepts Best Supporting Actress for ‘Fences’ onstage during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

they should’ve given the Oscar for best actor to Chris Evans for walking to the stage and looking real good instead of giving it to that guy who looks like he hasn’t showered for 5 months

erevbor  asked:

has anyone ever made a masterpost of the evidence of sherlock being trans? i see bits and small things going around in my dash, but i never saw a compilation, like, i could try to make one, but a)i am awful at searching things, b)im not sure if it is my place to do this since im not trans.

i made one HERE but i need to make a new more Official one lol also it doesnt include this amazing piece of evidence river noticed about john misgendering sherlock and greg #knowing in [this post] which, actually, is a much better post than mine because its not only newer but actually has like photos and references kjdjglfdkg sorry

anonymous asked:

hey hey so anyway i've always read nina as bisexual in canon and i also see that around a lot and i was just wondering if you knew whether leigh has like, officially confirmed it?? bc honestly bi characters who end up with someone of the opposite gender are so rare i want more of them

yup leigh stated she never saw nina as straight, but she also doesn’t want to take credit for something she didn’t put in canon. she mentioned she would rather talk about it in a book, which i respect. you can’t really take credit for representation that’s not there. the only hint of it we got in canon was nina saying she flirts with women too.
