HEY IT'S COKE MOM

Nutty_Flavor said...

Has anyone had the guts to wear a bright red dress, Betty Davis Jezebel style?

Danielle said...

One woman I’ve never heard of. One.

Sekrit said...

Seth is doing a great job, and talking about not just the elite, the real people just doing their job, dealing with harassment and other people's bullshit. Very nice, very classy, needed to be said.

Rinda said...

How stoned is Australian Barbie?

Dena said...

Gal Gadot is very cute.

Cella said...

What in the BOTOX is going on here!?!

Dena said...

Viola Davis is going to Studio 54 later.

Sekrit said...

Francis shooing the cameraman so she can see Sam is just great

Don Kieballs said...

I thought Sam Rockwell would win. That was a great role, and movie.

Sekrit said...

Aaaaas my livestream gets shut down, damn that was fast.

drkdragon777 said...

Watching these creepy fucks wearing their "Times Up" pins makes my skin crawl

Sue Rehder-Long said...

It’s hypocrite-fest, in all its splendor.

Dena said...

I'm sorry but Zac Efron is mighty hot.

ForSure said...

I love seeing Hugh and "his Debs" together, they are so cute.

Sekrit said...

Aniston is up, wonder if they'll just cut straight to Ang for a cheap shot

Sara, Making It Work said...

NOT watching. My new years resolution is no awards shows. Kind of a big deal for me.

Cella said...

Is it just me or is Aniston high as balls?

Ms. Cloud said...

Tara Lipinsky - Holy Botox! I can't look!

Alexandria Anna said...

Not watching either. Boooring. Will check who won later, and waiting for blinds.

Dena said...

Yeah, Jen A must have hot boxed her way to the show. She could use a hairbrush and a mirror.

Sekrit said...

Is it just me or is Aniston acting weird and annoying? I mean I find her painfully annoying anyway but you know

Sd Auntie said...

๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸคฃJennifer Anniston could barely talk!!! Kidman is just too much!

Sd Auntie said...

Zac looks as fine as evet❤

Cella said...

Dena, I think she stopped on the way and had some new veneers installed too, because she was having a rough time speaking. She sounded like that time trumps dentures kept falling out๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Sd Auntie said...

Jenn has,a strange speech impediment

Maidstone said...

Hated the Winona/L'Orรฉal commercial.

Sekrit said...

That... is some awful acting, holy fuck

Beedee99 said...

Michael Scott gets hotter by the year.

Don Kieballs said...

I'm just here for Harvey Weinstein to be "ritually sacrificed" on stage when they force him to apologize in an attempt(failed) to appear willing to change.

Kimberly Davis said...

But..she's a SCIENTOLOGIST!!!

Cella said...

Am I the only that can’t get down with the handmaids Tale due to Elizabeth Moss and her Scientologyness? I just can’t....

Kimberly Davis said...

Hell has frozen over! I now prefer Jen Aniston over Mortica!

Jonathan Jones said...

It's the most hypocritical night of the year!
With kvetching and sighing and oh so much lying and crocodile tears!
It's the most hypocritical night of the year!

At least until the Oscars anyway.

There needs to be a new #MeToo movement for behind-the-scenes people who've been treated like shit by Debra Messing.

Also, shut up Elisabeth Moss. You are a Sci and you know exactly what Scis do to women and you happily share the screen with a mega-rapist and YOU KNOW.

Kimberly Davis said...

Seeing Franco makes me gag...do his contemporaries KNOW what we do?

Sekrit said...

Honestly, I'm just waiting for some hot mess Mariah at this point

Sd Auntie said...

All the minions cheered loudly when Moss's name was mentioned

just sayin' said...

James Franco with a "Times Up" pin...waiting for the bolt of lightening....

Hortensia said...

Absolutely fabulous eye makeup on Emma Stone!!!!

Sekrit said...

@justsayin +++++++++++++++++++++1

just sayin' said...

Anyone else notice chilliness coming off of Streep toward Spielberg at the Post table?

timebob said...

mariah's dress is pretty see through, so she is on message but a "don't worry boys i'm still a whore!"

long time lurker said...

contrived. phony. hilarious.

Sekrit said...

@justsayin yeah i definitely saw that. He kept talking to her and she seemed to be just leaning away from him and looking ahead. I hope we get some enty news on that later

Alyssa Auriemma said...

Totally agree! She’s the most beautiful woman in the room! ๐Ÿ˜

Sd Auntie said...

Chester vibes from Franco.....

just sayin' said...

The woman who wore the gorgeous red dress is Meher Tatna, runner of the Golden Globes this year. Interesting choice.

Sara said...

Did Kerry Washington bring her fake husband?

just sayin' said...

Maybe we're having an impact, Sekrit! Spielberg and Capshaw practically groveling to make eye contact with Streep. And Tom Hanks acting pissy somehow, too.

Jenniferevrs said...

Did anyone else just hold their breath in anticipation of an epic Mimi moment?

Alexandria Anna said...

You guys!!!!

just sayin' said...

Can't see Shirley Maclaine without thinking of Himmmm now.

just sayin' said...

Franco wins Golden Globe at the Times Up year show. There is no God, people.

Sekrit said...

oh FUCK ME, Franco???? Shirley strangle him

Sekrit said...

I hope someone screencapped Hugh's face during Franco's speech because I think that's my new icon

Alexandria Anna said...

Gift from uncle Geffen...

Elisabeth Moss and James Franco. Smh

just sayin' said...

Ugh, Sharon Stone's dress, so bad!!! the fit is horrific.

Sd Auntie said...

Salma looks gorgeous

just sayin' said...

Alison Janney rules.

Sekrit said...

Allison Janney and Seb are a duo I could watch all day

shakey said...

Sharon is trolling for new clients.

Cella said...

Alison Janney is a total badass!

shakey said...

How does the rock get two appearances in one award show.

Rinda said...

Just once, before I die, I'd like to see Octavia Spencer not be at an awards show dressed like someone's 82 year old grandma.

Dena said...

Kit has a glass of champagne, maybe we'll get some action after all.

Don Kieballs said...

NPH face during Franco's speech was better

just sayin' said...

Just checking Michael Stuhlbarg's IMDb since he's in everything this year and see there's ALREADY a sequel to "Call Me By Your Name". The normalization movement of man-on-boy sex by Hollywood is working overtime.

Missyrocks53 said...

It's a good show. How does Aniston still have such shiny hair? So nice. Everyone looks great. Nicole's dress was spectacular.

timebob said...

is Kit with Rose?

Dena said...

Oh great, a tribute to rapey Kirk Douglas. #timesupdudeisancient

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Not watching but my psychic powers are telling me the room will be full of smug assholes who take themselves too seriously... I also sense teh presence of many famehoes. Also my psychic powers tell me it sucks.

And to the person saying Viola Davis is going to Studio54 after the show: I'm coming with her. One must need one hell of a stiff drink after being around these Hollywood people... ๐Ÿฅƒ

*Concordes to NYC* ๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿš•๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ’›

Sekrit said...

Fuck off Kirk you disgusting pig.

Dena said...

Honestly he might be in the In Memoriam segment later.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Okay I like Seth and his show and I'll give a pass for anyone fighting predators. But only them.

shakey said...

How old is kirk now 115?

Jen said...

OMGaaaawd everything is a freakin moral or tale of woe with these totally out of touch people. I'm trying to watch, but it's hard to take rich people boycotting other rich people by wearing expensive af gowns seriously. All of these Time's Up chicks are sitting at tables with molesters and abusers. None of this makes any sense.

Kirk Douglas' face is literally melting on stage. This is so painful.

Cella said...

This room is starting make me throw up in my mouth a little. Why are they applauding this guy? The word on the street is that he’s a rapey asshole๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž the hypocrisy is thick tonight๐Ÿ’ฉ #screwyoukirkdouglas

FA said...

Seriously? We go all out for #MeToo and then invite Kirk Douglas who allegedly raped Natalie Wood and was linked to a starlet's mysterious disappearance on stage to "honour" him??????? I swear Hollywood, you take one step up and 50 back. Go sit down and shut up and stop rewarding abusers for REAL.

rosie riveter said...

Good lord.
James Franco is THE worst

Dena said...

Kirk is 115, the size of Mini Me, and still had work done on his face.

just sayin' said...

Kirk Douglas is the living epitomization of "Times Up", literally and figuratively. What a bizarre choice.

BreeB714 said...

I haven't seen a single one of these movies and only 2 of the shows

Cella said...

I second everything that @jen said
After everything we know. These people all look like a bunch of assholes๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ’ฉ

Alexandria Anna said...

Only Harvey is missing at this charade lol. Why they didn't invite him? Quick, call him over, he'll be right in time for after party.

just sayin' said...

Kruger dressed impeccably as always but it looks like she had to drag Reedus out of bed.

BreeB714 said...

I didn't love Fargo season 3

Blue Margarita said...

I think everyone wearing black looks fantastic....best anyone has looked in a long time. very formal, love it. I especially loved Allison Janey's dress....gorgeous !!!

shakey said...

Wow he mentioned his wife and his mistress the same speech.

Sd Auntie said...

Edgar Ramirez ,,WOW

Dena said...

Oooooh, looks like Kit is with Emilia? They will definitely be the answer to a blind tomorrow.

Sekrit said...

Kruger is going to coke it up later and hope it gets her more publicity to ride on, whoo boy!


I am happy for Ewan because he's a good actor but the stuff he's done just. Disappointed in him.
Was anyone else just wincing through his speech just waiting to hear what he'll say about Eve and MW?

just sayin' said...

+1 on Ewan, Sekrit. The man's got testicles.

Movie Midget said...

Franco literally pushed the guy away from ๐ŸŽค to speak. What arrogant douche. Gotta check out these Streep and Spielberg

Unknown said...

The fact that none of the actors in Logan were not nominated shows how bullshit these awards are

long time lurker said...

MY husband refuses to watch “this garbage,” so changed the channel to watch an old Kirk Douglas movie. (Ace in the Hole.) Ugh. I started babbling about Natalie Wood and how he’s awful so now I am watching Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse with the kids.

Btw, I rarely comment, and have been reading for at least six years (I measure by kid ages). I know I’m echoing a lot of other lurkers by saying I’ve really enjoyed all of you. All of this. Hollywood is a funny place. Even funnier if you live here. I didn’t take my kids for a walk in our neighborhood because there were so many freakin lost limos roaming around.

GrumpyOldCatLady said...

The only way to powerfully protest Hollywood's culture of sexual violence would have been for ALL the actresses to boycout the whole awards season. All these so-full-of-themselves hypocrites make me want to throw up.

Dan Burns said...

Ally Sheedy tweets about James Franco:

https://twitter.com/allysheedy1/status/950188292103987205

StewMcG said...

So glad I'm not the only one! ๐Ÿ˜‚

shakey said...

William H. Macy has been phenomenal on Shameless this season. Best he’s been so far.

Maude Labowski said...

Isn't Aziz about to be outed as a sexual pred

Jen said...

I think Janey stopped short of saying the I, Tonya movie was for all the trashy, ugly people of the world. She almost said it, but caught herself just in time.

Also, interesting for all the MeToo girls to chose dresses that highlight their boobs. Ogling will still always be welcome and strongly encouraged, I guess.

Thrilled to see Amy Palladino win!

Dena said...

I have zero interest in the marvelous mrs. whatserfuck, that old timey affect drives me crazy and whoever accepted the award was completely irritating. Master of None was one of my favorites, though - glad to see Big Bud & Little Bud there.

Here For The Beef said...

Sekrit, got some deets on diane kruger? My sister hates her and I'd love to give her some tea

Maude Labowski said...

*predator (my bad)

For the record, I hope this isn't true

just sayin' said...

The only person to say that, Maude Labowski, is a bigoted Muslim-hating hypocrite who says it's wrong to name people as predators unless you have proof. Then he says "he hears Aziz is next to go down" every place he can. AJ Benza.

Sekrit said...

@Dan - I just saw Ally's tweets about Franco!

@Beef- I haven't met her, I only stuff I've been told about her by acquaintances and friends. She can be nice and down to earth, but she is definitely a fame whore and is latched onto Norman's taint (yes, I know him, contrary to some of the shit I've heard on here I haven't seen that behaviour at ALL. He's actually clean, smells good, talented and a very nice person, something you don't see much of these days)
I might talk about it later another time :)

Jen said...

@GrumpyOldCatLady, you're so right. A real protest would've been to stay home and leave a room of empty chairs. The siren's call of phony accolades, air kisses, drinks, and drugs is just too strong.

Maude Labowski said...

Thanks for the clarification! I was praying that wasn't true

You are on my short list of commenters on this site to trust (you and Boo and SD and Tricia)

Movie Midget said...

Holly Ally Sheedy just may have called out slater.

https://twitter.com/allysheedy1/status/950185703228542976

Jen said...

And a moral lecture from Oprah in 5, 4, 3, 2....

Captivagrl said...

Who doesn't LOVE Oprah? me.

shakey said...

What Ally Sheedy wrote just begs for attention.

Dena said...

Oprah looking damn good.

Movie Midget said...

I apologize if this uploads/post more then once. Anyone think it was weird how Skarsgard kept thanking Kidman.

shakey said...

Who doesn’t love a hypocritical standing ovation?

346NYC said...

We've taken a pre-emptive pass of political grandstanding and not watching.

Jen said...

I wonder how many of those women standing up will leave their philandering husbands tomorrow. Time's up, right? Or maybe time's only up if you're not getting anything out of it?

These people really love themselves.

Rosenthal said...

Man I bet some men are squirming in their seats at Oprahs speech

Cella said...

Natalie Portman dropping the hammer!

just sayin' said...

Hm, Meryl all schmoozy on Spielberg when his name was announced for "Best Director" nomination.

shakey said...

Ron Howard looks like a scarecrow.

Sekrit said...

Thank goodness Guillermo won. A sigh of relief. Very well deserved and a professional.

Don Kieballs said...

Guillermo Del Toro just silenced the play off music!!

amelia said...

Well Oprah finally stuck it to the sickos in Hollyweird! Good going Oprah!

Captivagrl said...

So the director nominees should apologize because they're not female? Portman is an asshole.

Don Kieballs said...

And Natalie Portman with the SHADE!!!!!

roxy said...

Ally Sheedy is my new hero.

I think I'm just going to keep boycotting movies and currently running television shows.

I'll watch once things hit Netflix except for any new Netflix stuff.

roxy said...

Oprah is part of the problem, not a part of the solution.

I loathe her and I used to love her when she first arrived in Chicago.

Sarah777 said...

One of ally’s tweets is hidden due to sensitive content? What did she say?

Don Kieballs said...

The Portman comment was aimed at the HFPA, not the directors nominated. She isn't taking anything away from their work, just speaking the truth that it is a disgustingly all male selection when there were great movies made by women last year.

Appalachian Mothersauce said...

Lol thanks y'all
I'm sitting in a boat on Monterey Bay with no TV. This is better. I have to read your comments to my Hubs.

Dena said...

I loved Ladybird and like Greta Gerwig... she's pretty unique.

Maude Labowski said...

Hahaha there is the Watson/Pattinson paring Enty told us about earlier

Maude Labowski said...

*pairing

My bad yet again

Jen said...

Portman's breakthrough role was that of an innocent 13 year old girl who was the obsession of Timothy Hutton (Beautiful Girls). I don't understand why these actors put that kind of crap out in the world and then smack hands when there's impropriety. It's all ok when they're getting paid.

Laura Jean Poon and Nicole Kidman don't seem like BFFs.

Here For The Beef said...

Thank you Sekrit!

I honestly can't wait for the BIs, does anyone know if Himmmm's there?

shakey said...

Salir se showing some Star Trek love with that dress.

Sekrit said...

I love Chris, he looks so handsome, that suit daaaaamnnnnnnn.

shakey said...

*Saoirse.

Maude Labowski said...

Greta should have at the very least been nominated

Cella said...

“Call me by you’re name”
What in the actual fuck is going on here? Who’s the pedophile that put that movie out!? ...just sayin!

Philophile said...

Guillermo del Toro is MEXICAN, for God's sake. It's not like Hollywood is overflooding with successful Latino directors. Even when us Latinos win, we still don't.

Jen said...

@Cella Yes, and it would be pretty awkward if that wins. But if it does, I'd love to see a real journalist question Reese or Oprah or Laura about it.

Here For The Beef said...

So Get Out didn't win anything????

Sd Auntie said...

Thanks Maude. We have a good fun crew here!

Alexandria Anna said...

He's omnipresent, I bet he is ๐Ÿ˜‚
And he's not here today.
But just guessing, no idea ๐Ÿ˜•

Kara Zor-El said...

I’m sad that a Fantastic Woman didn’t win. I knew it wouldn’t, but I still had hope.

Shana said...

What was the Pattinson / Watson blind?

Dena said...

Entry's calling people out on Twitter. ๐Ÿ‘

Maude Labowski said...

Alluding to a manufactured relationship/PR relationship

Sekrit said...

Hey guys, I've got to go, hope you all have fun and if you can't continue watching or haven't, I suggest you go over to see Enty's twitter.

See you guys around later!

Sd Auntie said...

I did...I think they love each other...movie midget...

Sarah777 said...

Gotta love the pic of Oprah kissing Harvey Weinstein that’s all over Twitter right now. I truly cannot stand Meryl Streep.

Jen said...

Great stuff on Twitter! Cue McDormand morality lecture in 3, 2, 1...

LizOz said...

๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍♀️ He’s always given me entitled creeper vibes

Don Kieballs said...

I'm happy for Three Billboards. It was a great movie.

Also, something something Trump had all his staff go to Camp David but Jeff Sessions, something something,

Alexandria Anna said...

That's a nice schwartzlist, what Enty posted on twitter.

Rinky said...

I'm spreading the photo of Oprah licking Harvey's face up with everyone I know. Fat fucking billionaire hypocrite. If she cared, she's rich enough to have called him out ages ago. So go to hell Oprah, ugh. If he gets rehabilitated and is The Business again in Hollywood you know 90% of these virtue signalling little bozos would go back to sucking his dick in an instant.

Speaking of which, has anyone seen J. Law this evening?

notthisagain said...

did Franco kill the expose on his school w/all the allegedly sexual assaults and young women gathering w/their experience to speak out?

cause right now, he seems to be pretty peppy. the momentum has died down despite this showing at the GGs. Franco probably silenced everybody. I wouldnt be surprised.

I want to be positive, but after this win, Im losing hope that the Franco acting school thing will ever get out

notthisagain said...

also, something shady up with In The Fade winning Best Foreign Film......

I have a feeling some $hadiness is afoot, a la Gaga winning Best Actres$ when kiki should have one that one year.

A Fantastic Woman was expected to win...interesting....

filmfanb said...

See you guys tomorrow morning. Its gonna be juicy.

beebopcowboy said...

I too am disappointed the franco thing hasn't been exposed. tho, maybe if its on the horizon, it will be even more powerful to reveal truth AFTER these wins for him. In a way, it will sting even more (in the way it needs to to affect people)

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2017/10/todays-blind-items-paying-to-be.html

just in case anybody wanted the link.

filmfanb said...

fuck meryl streep.

Unknown said...

These people are ridiculous. Now, all of a sudden, they are "changing the world" and it'll be done this year in fact, because actors can do anything of course. I don't see anyone returning the money they made profiting from the abusers they are speaking out against. Of course not. In fact, "Time's Up" and the black dress solidarity is just another way to profit further and pat themselves on the back yet again while not actually doing anything meritorious.

Remember, these are the same people who gave Casey Affleck awards just a year ago when his history of sexual assault had been well-documented. But now, because the rest of us (who heretofore had limited inside knowledge) are paying attention, they suddenly acting like this issue is important to them, like they care. But hey, they're actors, that's what they do, right?

RocketGirl said...

Blanca Blanco did too.

Janieb said...

What will it take for Hugh Jackman to finally get some recognition for his work!?! James Franco, REALLY??? I wouldn't have blamed Hugh and Deb for getting up and going straight to the bar at that point!

John Cantor said...

I find it utterly contemptable that Hollywood stage this entire event for the publics eyes unless they ALL have something more in store for us.

Oprah of all people spearheading the effort with a poignant speech when her and her lesbian cohorts have indulged in the 'lifestyles of the rich and famous' for years now. I don't see her raising an eyebrow at her rich friends that are rumored to be highly involved in much of the mess we see before us, what's the scoop on your buddies Richard Branson and textile producers like Peter Nygard and his Carribean Mayan-inspired Nygard Cay? Johnny Depp, David Copperfield, Kenny Chesney,Jeffrey Epstein and many others ain't got islands down there for no reason at all.

DumDumPop said...

Gunna have to agree John, it was gross how self serving all of that was. They talked so much about progress to end up have rapists on stage getting standing ovations and coddling. It's really sickening how Hollywood only cares about protecting their own and not the many victims left in their wake.

Guesser said...

Oprah will be back on Geffen's yacht again.

John Cantor said...

I seem to have a growing disdain for this entire #MeToo movement because it is obviously and blatantly ignoring one huge demographic of abuse that is as all pervading and systemic as Hebophilic and of-age sexual harassment, non-consent and rape incidents that happen everyday in Hollywood. Unfortunately, this substratus of Hollywood abuse will NEVER GET BROACHED due to the very same wide reaching interconnected nexus of subversive coercion these women are trying to speak out against. But somehow, and oddly enough, these women keep forgetting to speak out about all of the MALE AND FEMALE UNDERAGE VICTIMS that Hollywood churns out every year, all of the sick and twisted real life Hollywood stories that sometimes go WAY BEYOND even their own movie scripts. Why? Because that interconnected nexus has dirt on EVERYONE and roots that reach up into the CIA,Mk-Ultra and Monarch Mind Control Programming from the Nazi's Project Paperclip (Jared Leto owns their former production unit for MK-Utra training and Nuke test videos) you bet there is rhyme and reason why many of these women have been tapped (like Bill Cosby's accusers from Hugh Hefner's Honey Trap) to go public about these incidents that happened many years ago. I'm not saying these events were not real, horrific or scarring, but what I am suggesting is that these women were under 'accepted and normal' pressures of being in Hollywood (some under consent and complicity), career obligations, coercion and threat, among many other things AS WELL AS FOR BEING UNDER CONTRACT FOR WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT.

Much of the reason for this disclosure is a an alchemical magickal process by which you are all being psychologically stripped of your IDOLS, people that you have looked up to for generations, as a demoralizing tool, to weaken your self-esteem and outlook upon the world. Essentially you are being conned into giving up hope for the world.

Do not, for all is not lost.

Burn em down Enty...

Her table?

Looks like Sheedy just got rid of those tweets, like dandruff on the scalp... Enty is going in. Love it.

kelli riot grrrl said...

All of Ally Sheedy's tweets (3, I think) are in an article at eonline.com. Unfortunately, after the article there are tons of comments slamming her & defending sleazebag Franco. What a world, what a world.

OPRAH

boredatwork boredatwork said...

Everything has changed - forever.
Hollywood used to be revered, now that it's been exposed as a filthy cesspit, of rapists, pedos, whores and enablers, things will never be the same again for any celebrity.
Now they have to actually back up their words, because the world is watching.
They have lost their shine, it will never be the same again, the public will show with their money how much they can go fuck themselves, like withe the NFL or the elections.
The time were barely literate, ignorant celebrities, think they can tell us poor plebs how to live our lives IS OVER. Forever.
And it all happened under Trump.
It's fucking brilliant.

LizOz said...

I had the same reaction - I haven’t seen it but critical reception wasn’t strong at all. Seemed to come out of nowhere ๐Ÿค”

AIP said...

Oh no, Jen. Portman’s breakout role was before that as Mathilde in “Lรฉon”, with Jean Reno. The scene where she dances Madonna is all types of icky. And there was meant to have been a scene where She (Mathilde) asks Besson to be her boyfriend/lover. Now, I enjoy French cinema - I prefer comedies though- so I’m used to all sorts, but, Godammit Luc Besson, what were you thinking?

AIP said...

Me...err...too

Tricia13 said...

Thank you Maude! We do@Sd Auntie๐Ÿ’•

boredatwork boredatwork said...

AIP - what Luc Besson was thinking, was to make a movie that made some sort of sense. LEON is brilliant.

The reason Mathilde acts like that with Leon and sees nothing wrong with it, is because she grew up surrounded by pimps, whores and low lives. It is Leon who by not accepting her advances to pay him back physically for protecting her, shows her that this upbringing was not normal. She thinks she owes him, while he does it without expecting anything back. It was an essential part of the film, totally obvious and I find it weird that you did not get it.

Alexandria Anna said...

AIP, I've read that in original, more controversial script, Mathilde was supposed to be 16 year old though. There are few more scenes that were written out of the movie after they hired 12 year old Natalie Portman.

World weary said...

Oh yes he is.

World weary said...

I loathe her. What she did to to The Million Little Pieces guy James Frey was brutal and hypocritical.

PotPourri said...

Someone must have paid a lot for Elizabeth Moss to win...

AIP said...

@Boredatwork and Alexandria: thanks Alexandria. I hadn’t realized that she was originally intended to be older.
Bored, it’s been quite a few years since I watched it, but I did understand that to be the case, and certainly I wasn’t hinting that Lรฉon was encouraging her.

As for sense from Besson? But then the guilty pleasures of the Taxi films would be lost to us! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Jen said...

Great point, @AIP. I forgot about that film, but I've never seen it. I have kids that age myself and it sounds like I wouldn't be able to stomach it.

I think the vast majority of Americans take these asshats at face value and award shows will always have an audience. People defend their favorite stars and forget they're really just actors, that they act for a living and therefore are successful at being deceitful, even when the story is staring them in the face. What a world.





crackity-Mcgee said...

@notrhisagain franco does not have that kind of juice
so either teh film is projected to make lots of money and people at a24 have that power or connection or
some previous Blinds were true and he and bro really in with some heavy hitters over the instagram trafficking-pimping
