“Mr. Trump, this year Secretary Clinton became the first woman nominated for President by a major party. Earlier this month you said she doesn’t have “a Presidential look.” She’s standing here right now. What did you mean by that?”

Donald Trump: “She doesn’t have the look. She doesn’t have the stamina. I said she doesn’t have the stamina. And I don’t believe she does have the stamina. To be President of this country, you need tremendous stamina.”

“The quote was, ‘I just don’t think she has a Presidential look.’”

Donald Trump: Wait a minute, Lester, you asked me a question. Did you ask me a question?  You have to be able to negotiate our trade deals. You have to be able to negotiate, that’s right, with Japan, with Saudi Arabia. […] You have so many different things you have to be able to do and I don’t believe that Hillary has the stamina.”

“Let’s let Hillary respond.”

Hillary Clinton: “As soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease fire, a release of dissidents, an opening of new opportunities in nations around the world, or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a Congressional committee, he can talk to be about stamina.”

I have a HUGE favor to ask you!! My muse is from this indie game called OXENFREE, made by the amazing @nightschoolstudio​.
Apparently Oxenfree has a couple nominations in the Golden Joystick Awards this year, which is basically the Oscars for video games. SO PLEASE, IF YOU CAN VOTE HERE, PLEASE VOTE FOR OXENFREE!!
Night School Studios worked so hard in their first game, and I can’t wait for them to make more in the future! It’s very impressive for a dialogue-based game, and they definitely need some recognition out there!! Thanks guys!!

Okay remember when they wouldn’t let Steve Colbert run for president because they thought it was a joke but then they let this TALKING ORANGE SKITTLE not only run but get the REPUBLICAN NOMINATION

2016 Goal of the Year - Eddie Betts (Adelaide)

Adelaide superstar Eddie Betts has become the first player to claim back-to-back Goal of the Year awards, taking home the title for the third time in his career. Nominated four times this season, it was during the Crows’ clash with the Giants in Round 10 that the miraculous goal came about; lunging at a loose ball on the boundary line late in the third quarter, Betts trapped the Sherrin, exploded past two opponents and snapped a miracle major on his right boot. It was one of five goals that he’d kick that night with yet another Goal of the Year nomination coming later in the match.

AP Exclusive: New film academy members talk #OscarsSoWhite

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The newest members of the film academy say the #OscarsSoWhite crisis inspired them to seek membership.

At a private reception Monday for the latest academy inductees, actors Chadwick Boseman and Rita Wilson were among the new members who said they joined the organization to advance the diversity discussion in the film industry.

“I felt obligated to join,” said Boseman, who plays Thurgood Marshall and Marvel hero Black Panther in upcoming films. “After a certain number of years when you see something happen and you feel like there are worthy films that should be nominated or presented, yeah, you have to join. You have to be a voice.”

Wilson said #OscarsSoWhite moved her to join the organization her husband, Tom Hanks, has been active with for years.

“I have never been a member and I thought this is the right time,” she said. “It feels right because it seemed to me the academy was really open to hearing what the issues were, not only with colour but with women and all sorts of diversity.”

After two years of an all-white slate of acting nominees for the Academy Awards spawned its own hashtag, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made significant changes to its voting practices and announced intentions to double the number of female and minority members by 2020. The organization has historically been overwhelmingly white and male.

Monday’s reception at Catch restaurant in West Hollywood, California, celebrated the largest and most diverse class of invitees to date.

“You are proof that the academy is committed to and working toward its goal of inclusion,” academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told the guests as they sipped Champagne and snacked on lobster mac and cheese. “Together, you are among the 683 new members of the academy.”

The organization’s inclusion efforts inspired Lisa Taback, a new member of the public relations branch.

“I think they’re on a great track,” she said, “Certainly reaching out to more women and trying to find a little more of a gender balance.”

Screenwriter Phyllis Nagy said she wants to “open up the diversity issue” now that she’s an academy member.

“I think we have to address everything,” she said. “It’s not just Oscars so white. It’s Oscars so male, Oscars so straight…Hopefully the new member initiative that the academy announced will help.”

The momentum is there, said veteran publicist Lisa Taback., who joined the organization this year.

“I think they’re on a great track,” she said, “certainly reaching out to more women and trying to find a little more of a gender balance, so that’s very exciting to me and important to me.”

The party had little agenda other than to mingle and enjoy. Boone Isaacs briefly addressed the crowd, followed by academy chief Dawn Hudson, who joked about the event coinciding with the presidential debate.

“I’m so impressed that you all came tonight,” she said. “It just proves that art trumps politics.”

She urged the new members to take their new responsibilities seriously by voting for Oscar nominees and winners,

“You can vote all year round at the academy,” she quipped, referring to the organization’s various contests for emerging talents.

GLOBE Community Awards 2016: Cast your vote for the MCV People’s Choice - Gay News Network
The top ten entries for the MCV People’s Choice Award at the 2016 GLOBE Community Awards have been announced and now it’s time to cast your vote.
By Reg Domingo

GUYS I GOT NOMINATED FOR THE GLOBE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD! You can vote for me! 

The GLOBE Community Awards celebrate achievement in Victoria’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community, and People’s Choice are nominated by the public. 

I’ve been nominated for my work with Joy 94.9. Not sure if it’s for the Bi program or current affairs or BOTH. Hard to say as I have no idea who nominated me OR WHY!

I am short-listed with some heavy hitters and frankly some inspirations of mine including Roz Ward who helped create the Safe Schools Anti-Bullying program. 

Winner is decided through votes, and while I have a pretty low public profile when compared to most of these people I’m still super excited!

people who whine about tumblr being america centric during a time of near national crisis in which a racist angry pumpkin can become president clearly don’t live here and don’t understand the imminent threat we’re all facing if trump gets nominated :’)))

listen that pic with Bernie watching the debate is really sad, like we let him and ourselves down by not doing our best to get him the nomination and i know hillary’s not the best but if we let the same thing happen and end up with trump… like we gotta be on top of shit we cant just be all talk guys ok we gotta actually vote

#BoycottLGBTAwards

edit: The 2016 British LGBT Awards awards ceremony already happened (it took place on May 13th), but it’s great that this is still getting notes. 

Thanks to everyone who commented on this post (especially @caitlintheawesome‘s addition). Your criticism, suggestions, and opinions will hopefully improve next year’s awards. Also, to everyone who said Troye Sivan should have been nominated: YES! He would have been a perfect choice. The British LGBT Awards claim that nominations are based on public opinion, maybe we can campaign for him to be nominated for 2017? 

Lastly! Here are some articles about the controversy:

British LGBT awards criticised for including Zayn Malik and Zoella in shortlist

The Controversy Behind The 2016 British LGBT Awards

Organisers of the British LGBT Awards came under heavy criticism last month after it was revealed that Zayn Malik and Zoella featured on their 2016 shortlist

The British LGBT Awards: An Insult To The Queer Community

#BoycottLGBTAwards trends as British LGBT Awards shows a lack of LGBT nominees

So lemme get this straight… They had Creed, Beasts of No Nation, Concussion, Straight Outta Compton, but they still decided to keep the nominees 

this white? 

What about Idris Elba? What about Abraham Attah?  What about Michael B. Jordan or Ryan Coogler? What about Jason Mitchell? What about Oscar Isaac? Where are the asian actors or directors? What about latin directors aside from Iñárittu? Where are the women of color?

How is it that two movies that were about black people nominated but only nods to the white people? 

Why do we constantly have to ask these questions every year?
