Did you know the sun rose in the east and will set in the west? Or that water is wet? Or that little shits will be little shits even if you give them millions of dollars to make a movie? This person is also vv upset that Benetton and Star Trek had the sheer gaul to cast people of color in their respective media.
I cannot even begin to fathom the wrongness of this
“From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise. You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, ‘Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.’ Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, ‘Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?’ That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.” - From the Complex article.
Colorblindness always seems to equate not having anyone of color involved in casting. Therefore race does matter. It matters enough to exclude anyone that isn’t white.
What’s brilliant about the writing is that in that moment, that’s the first moment Brienne considers it, and it’s the horror that that might be true and what she might have to deal with. […] She moves away; she doesn’t do the formal exit. She just has to turn away. Even Brienne is incredibly aware of respectability and manners, as difficult as it is for her; she’s still a lady. But she doesn’t give a formal exit, she turns away. Then in her eye-line is Jaime. It’s, I think, really slapped her hard on one side of the face, and then the other even harder, as she runs off red-faced. “Oh, God!” - Gwendoline Christie
I was right
“Tina was still the head writer of SNL so she was back and forth between the set [in Toronto] and New York, and Amy was still on SNL as well. They would come in Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for the film, and go back Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to prep for the SNL broadcast. But when they were in town we did hang out. We hung out with Amy a lot; Tina isn’t crazy about flying, so they would drive her in from New York. And Amy would just go on Lorne’s jet so she’d get in sooner and just be around a lot more. The wrap party was insane — it was karaoke. I just remember singing “Love Shack” with Amy, and later me and Lizzy [Caplan] doing back up for her on Eminem songs.”
Oh hey, not a big deal, but the hubble took a picture of a star that’s nearing supernova status.
