There are two things that can happen tonight:
- Leonardo Dicaprio is going to win the Oscar
- Leonardo Dicaprio is not going to win the Oscar
and both times tumblr will go nuts and I will enjoy every minute of it
I’m 75% sure that he might win… and if he wins it’s not exactly going to be for this specific part in The Wolf Of Wallstreet but mostly for almost all the other parts (characters) that he has played through his whole carrier and that the Academy has always snobbed… just saying…
…and now something slightly out off topic but still on topic… I’m aware that this might sound senseless and weird but I need to get this off my chest, though I’m aware nobody cares. I don’t want Michael Fassbender to win the Oscar for that role :O :x
Normally I watch movies and I form my own opinion despite what the reviews might say. This time I’m forming my opinion out of reviews -___-’ some praise this movie some others don’t. I’m rooting for this film in a pretty neutral way because I haven’t been able to watch 12 Years A Slave and probably I will never watch it. I couldn’t even watch Django fully (among so many other movies). It’s too much for me.
I have studied American History and World History. So it’s not like I don’t know how things went. I know all what one needs to know about slavery in America (the continent, you know, Nord, Central, Caribbean and South, and not just US). Right now, the last thing I need is this kind of emotional trauma. I’m at a point in my life where it takes me nothing to burst into tears so I can’t even imagine what would it be if I get to watch this movie. So, sorry if I’m not watching it.
I’m an extremely sensitive soul. Honestly, I’ve always struggled watching movies, tv shows, documentaries or whatever involving detailed severe violence, brutality or cruelty. Specially when is not fictional stuff but real historical life facts, because they happened for real and that’s the worst and saddest part. I can’t cope with the fact that such monumental terrible harrowing things happened in mankind history, speaking in general (though in this case we’re talking about slavery in US). I even struggled while studying these things.
It’s too much and I can’t take it. It shocks me, it makes me feel sick, it affects me so bad, both physically and emotionally. I can’t stop thinking about it for hours or even days, I can’t take it off my head. I need moral support and I can’t stop talking about it for a while.
Despite all this, I must say that this is an important movie due to its historical and sociological relevance. And above all it’s a reminder of how loathsome human beings can be and that no man should ever face any kind of cruelty and violence. Utopian.
I’d love to go back in time and change the course of most horrible things and atrocities in history, actually I’d love to change all terrible things that are currently happening around the globe, included modern day slavery, but that’s clearly not possible. I ain’t no superhero ._. I’m still a nobody, so there’s very little I can do (jeez this is a great motivation and reminds me that I gotta keep studying so maybe I can become someone just to be able to help this diseased world in any possible and impossible way) … dude! rambling again…
So yeah, basically Michael I DON’T WANT YOU to win the Oscar for a role that
°1st of all is damn evil. Let’s focus on the performance, outstanding, impeccable brilliant! I couldn’t stand your character, it was horrendously disgusting on a high level (I’ve read the plot, reviews and watched the trailer). Why people like that even existed? ._. I can’t even imagine how difficult must been for you to perform it. Challenging.
°2nd: I DON’T WANT YOU to win the Oscar for portraying such a vile character.
The 1st time I saw you probably was in X-men but you caught my fangirl eye in Angel I’m pretty much sure it was because I noticed a striking resemblance to Tom Hiddleston lol. And then of course there’s Jane Eyre *sighs*.
The point is I don’t want to remember Michael as that horrendous character from 12 Years a Slave. There’s almost always that role in an actor/actress’s career that becomes the most representative role of his/her career. We automatically associate them to it even if most of them haven’t won the Oscar for that specific role . For example, Christopher Lee as Dracula, Ian Mckellen as Gandalf, Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Will Smith as Will from the fresh prince, Angelica Huston as Morticia, Natalie Portman as queen Amidala and so on.
What do they all have in common? they are “heroes”.
So yeah Michael, your representative character cannot be this one, probably it’s yet to come so no big deal if you don’t win the Oscar for this character. Actually It might be better that way.
Cate Blanchett I’m rooting for you, dear elf! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Ok, heading off to watch the Oscars! weeeeee! ☆*･゜ﾟ･*＼(⌒▽⌒)ﾉ*･゜ﾟ･*☆
Just so you know: the visual effects house that worked on Life of Pi just declared bankruptcy about two weeks ago. These people no longer have jobs. They were trying to bring awareness to the fact that this is happening to visual effects houses all over Hollywood, but were cut off before they even got any kind of a chance to mention it. Who needs to hear about that when we can watch more useless musical numbers?

…currently, I don’t believe in marriage and happily ever after and stuff but if any of you were planning on proposing to me, if ever planning on proposing, this ring could be the one… just saying…
Today in Middle-Earth: The Fellowship pass the Argonath and camp at Parth Galen (February 25th, 3019 T.A.)
’Behold the Argonath, the Pillars of the Kings!’ cried Aragorn. ‘We shall pass them soon. Keep the boats in line, and as far apart as you can! Hold the middle of the stream!’
As Frodo was borne towards them the great pillars rose like towers to meet him. Giants they seemed to him, vast grey figures silent but threatening. Then he saw that they were indeed shaped and fashioned: the craft and power of old had wrought upon them, and still they preserved through the suns and rains of forgotten years the mighty likenesses in which they had been hewn.
He is fairer than the morning star, and whiter than the moon. For his body I would give my soul, and for his love I would surrender heaven.
Oscar Wilde (via siriusc)
jeez this is beautiful and I don’t want to be annoying and it’s not my intention to screw the magic but
this is about a “she”, a mermaid, in the original Oscar Wilde story The Fisherman and his Soul.
…but yeah just embrace the version the suits your case better *^*
No need to say I’m not a Twilight fan precisely because I love vampires ( ¬ _ ¬’ ) but yes I watched Twilight breaking down part 2 just because of Lee, so Lee I hope you appreciate what I’ve done for you! …I skipped almost all the movie, except Lee’s scenes, there was no other way for me to watch this, not sorry…
but OMG! IT WAS WORTH WATCHING ONLY BECAUSE OF LEE, his character, his looks really grow on you. Just one thing that could have made him look better (if that’s even possible): longer hair. (◡‿◡✿)
