I have not been affected by a TV series in a long time like I was during this scene. I felt that primal fear to my very bones when he explained. In that moment I don’t know if she’s going to survive the evening, but I know that he’s going to hurt her and hurt her badly. I, myself, don’t have a history of abuse, but in this society you don’t need one to feel so scared and so hopeless, as she feels, just as I felt there, even for a moment.
Can love travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our
joined hands that finally lifted Maria’s curse? I’d like to think so. There are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt
over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant
lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.
This is not anti-Nicole Kidman but more of a spotlight on the ones in control of the Emmys. The ones who softly played off others, allowed Nicole to speak on to her liking with no orchestra to play her off, but then cut a historic moment and equally important speech with blaring music and a mic cut. Luckily, however, Sterling was able to finish his speech backstage [x].
Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one
not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I
wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story
about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that
will live forever.
