All this Jennifer Lawrence bashing is making me incredibly disappointed at you, Tumblr.
Lupita Nyong’o is a goddess, but let’s not forget how funny and laid back Jen is. How much we admire her for not bending to Hollywood in her beliefs and just being generally clumsy, the opposite of what girls feel the need to be.
I love Lupita: her elegance, her beauty, the fact that a person of colour is changing Hollywood and making thousands of kids have more hope. And she SO deserved this Oscar. 2013 was hers.
I just don’t get why you have to make Jen feel so bad in order to glorify Lupita. They can coexist in peace (maybe even work together someday).
They are both incredibly talented, beautiful and smart. They both represent things I love in this new Cinema: strong white women like Katniss (I know Katniss is a person of colour, but Jen isn’t), strong black women like Patsey. They represent girl power, black power. They represent positive changes.
What if we start practicing what we believe, Tumblr? Women are not each other’s enemies. We are TOGETHER against the world. Let’s not forget how much we need each other.
