Cinderella arrives at the ball.
this movie was so important
we had black cinderella, a black fairy godmother, and a filipino prince
like yoOOOOO THIS WAS ‘97 AND PEOPLE ARE SHITTING OVER A CHEERIOS COMMERCIAL TODAY LIKE Y000000
Victor Garber and Whoopi Goldberg parented an Asian prince. Like what more can you ask for?
Whitney Houston as the Fair Godmother… oh shit we got that too!
If you guys look back the 90’s was really good about representation tv execs were starting to wake up. Many movies and tv shows made sure they had characters of a number of ethnicities. Now what happened to that still remains a mystery to me.
Because racists are saying it’s racist to represent other races.
Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

HBO - Looking
↳What’s your fuckin’ problem with me, dude?
So this was a thing I noticed and really liked. Richie made fun of Patrick for making a big deal out of Richie meeting his friends but he was totally hovering and following Patrick all day cause, duh; he doesn’t know any of these people, Patrick is his social lifeline and the only person he’s comfortable with, he’s worried that they won’t like him and then Agustín goes and confirms that at least one of them don’t in a pretty heinous way. Little, very human stuff like that hovering is what sticks with me about episodes of Looking.
Also Raúl Castillo is pretty consistently hitting it out of the park in making Richie by far the most endearing and believable character in the cut. Well deserved promotion to regular.
the dumbest thing is when parents say “this isnt how i raised you” like ?????? yes it really is you literally raised me and here i am
