Really need to start posting again.
Have four titled-but-empty drafts sitting in my draft folder.
So much to do, so little time.
But hey, at least I finally know what I want to do with my life.
Just realised that in shortly over five months, I’ll have to change the name of my blog. I’m starting to feel old.
Two of my favourite films this year were ‘Short Term 12’ and ‘Fruitvale Station’, both amazing pieces of cinema with great performances from Brie Larson, Lakeith Lee Stanfield, Michael B. Jordan and Octavia Spencer. Unfortunately, both got no love from the Oscar nominators due to one simple fact,…
Actually you’re wrong. It’s because the panel doesn’t want to admit that racism is alive and kicked while with 12 years a slave, they are able to justify by saying that it is in the past and things are better now. It’s more palatable to the white male crowd that is the academy board.
Can definitely understand your point in relation to ‘Fruitvale Station’, but ‘Short Term 12’ was snubbed for some reason as well.
I just used the shared fact that they’re both independent movies as the reasons for them not being nominated for any awards. In my mind, it is the most logical reason; but the fact that the voters are like more than 70% white and male probably plays into it as well.
