I will get off my Oscar high horse in about one more day so hear me out, if you haven’t, see ‘12 Years a Slave’, find a way to watch it. So many people are going to miss out on this beautiful and heart wrenching story because they, “Can’t handle it”, “It’s too painful to watch” etc. watch it. Even if it is only once, it is such a beautiful testament to a person’s ability to have hope, even in the darkest moments. The best line uttered, “I don’t want to survive, I want to live” - everyone should see this film, it is so important. Besides all the amazing display of acting talent and direction of Steve McQueen, the story is incredible to see on screen.
Please drop any excuses and watch this incredible film.

Jared Leto just accepted an award for playing a trans woman and did not mention trans people even once.
"To those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you loved, tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you."
I would have ranted about it if I had my computer near me during the Oscars (and still may at some point), but let me state the obvious that LEONARDO DICAPRIO WAS YET AGAIN ROBBED OF AN OSCAR AFTER A COMPLETELY FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE. Shit Leo did you piss off Harvey Weinstein or something? HE HAD A CANDLE UP HIS ASS IF THAT ISN’T METHOD AS SHIT I DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL GET YOU AN OSCAR BLOODY HELL.
