When “lazy ass” just won’t cut it.
Blue Jasmine | 2013 | dir. Woody Allen
Cate Blanchett definitely deserves the Academy Award for Best Actress this year and no one is expecting her NOT to easily walk away with it because her performance as Jasmine goes from overly eccentric to deeply upsetting and heartbreaking with so much ease, making her breakdown in the final moments of the film to be truly distressing.
"Thanks for posting this picture. It’s a tribute to my wife, Gretchen Davis, and her colleague, Yvette Rivas who ran the "Blue Jasmine" makeup and hair departments and came up with the products to make Cate look so distressed."
The make-up work really was perfection in this film. I spent as much time watching how they crafted her slide downwards cosmetically as I did watching her do it theatrically. It was SO good.
Maybe that’s ‘cause you did everything.
"As random and subjective this award is…."
"To the audiences who went to see it. And perhaps to those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the centre are niche experiences. They are not. In fact audiences want to see them, and they make money, so…
THE WORLD IS ROUND, PEOPLE!”

Lupita Nyong’o. What a speech.
It no longer matters what happens or who wins what or if Meryl has the sniffles or Leo is overlooked again or how many gongs Twelve Years a Slave wins because JENNIFERLAWRENCE FELL OVER! I REPEAT, JLAW FELL OVER!
According to all ‘news’ media everywhere.
I miss these two soooo much.
Talk to your mother like that? Jk.
