Superlative Sunday :: our thoughts on the 2017 Academy Awards

26 Feb

It is very poetic that a movie made about black culture, i.e. jazz, that featured only one black person (La La Land), was upset by a story written and directed by a black man, based on a play by a queer black man, about a queer black man (Moonlight).

We did not watch the awards tonight. We stayed in and cuddled and watched Loving instead, and quietly mourned the lack of an Oscar for Ruth Negga, who is the most fabulous.

Good job, Zootopia. Good job, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali.

I’m judging the hell out of Suicide Squad winning anything, even and especially makeup and hairstyling. You won an award for writing “Damaged” in elegant cursive across Jared Leto’s 2edgy4u forehead. I am judging the hell out of it.

I’m also kind of judging Fantastic Beasts winning costumes, largely because I judge when anything that’s predominantly suits with no apparent metatextuality to them wins costumes anywhere. I’m sure they were very nice suits, but I am a snob.

Fuck off, Casey Affleck.

–your fangirl heroines.
