Last night was The 85th Annual Academy Awards and I’m completely ashamed to say I watched the entire thing. To sum it up, Seth MacFarlane did surprisingly not shitty, Jennifer Lawrence fell down, the Best Director winner was bullshit, Ben Affleck got snubbed, then didn’t and George Clooney kept getting free scotch thrown at him for smiling every time someone joked he banged and/or will bang somebody like nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis (Actual Seth MacFarlane joke.) who already had to deal with Daniel Day Lewis demanding she thank him backstage. This shouldn’t fuck a kid up.

Jessica Chastain went from almost total obscurity two years ago to somehow starring in 13 movies since. She had 7 last year, including Brad Pitts wife in ‘Tree of Life’ and an Academy Award Best Supporting Actress nomination for ‘The Help’, then 6 more this year, highlighted by Kathryn Bigelows movie about SEAL Team 6 as they hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden (Bigelows first movie since winning the Academy Award for Best Director for ‘The Hurt Locker’).
It’s a powerful reminder to all the young actresses out there that dreams really can come true in Hollywood, especially if those dreams involve me turning up the brightness on her pictures to maybe see her tits.
