How I deal with ignorance.
Glasgow is a punk rock town.
Liverpool really is the place
Sheffield isn’t even on this map.
Dundee is fun? Get fucked
Swansea is the graveyard of ambition
Newcastle is in Scotland.
But I love Leeds :(
Best case scenario: Betty gets Simon freed from the crown for good, they get married and have a family, and Marceline gets to be a rockin’ big sister. Please let this happen. ;_;
Worst Case Scenario?
Betty takes on the mantle of Ice Queen, freeing Simon into the sweet release of death.
I have so much fear and dread D:
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.
Firstly, I have met an interviewed a member of the academy, who votes on animated films. He goes to the Animex gaming and film festival in England every single year, he adores film, and has passionate opinions about animation.
You can’t judge ALL of the academy as an amorphous mass rather than a number of individuals.
Secondly, I actually really respect the members who said they hadn’t seen all of the films and therefore didn’t vote. It would have been unfair just to say “Meh, Frozen”, yes - but that didn’t happen.
Third, yes the #1 quote on that list is indeed a godawful close-minded a-hole. But (according to Wiki Answers) there are about 6,500 voters in the academy. Not 2.
Fourthly, The Oscars have problems across the board - not just in animation. The crazy number of things that get overlooked for nominations, and the amount of crap that makes it in, year-after-year is saddening.
Any films in a period setting, for an adult audience, or based on true events tend to please the academy far more than anything about the modern age, youth or experimental and strange films.
That and I have no damn idea who puts together the best soundtrack and song lists. Some real sh*te gets into there year after year. And in 2011 there were only TWO nominations. WTF?
The Academy (again, largely but not completely) being comprised of old critics who only want to see more of the same thing is a problem for every category, not just animation.
Fifth… Frozen would have won anyway because it is, in my opinion and the opinion of many many many other people I know - the best animated film to come out in 2013. Hands down.
What has the internet been talking about for 5 Months non-stop, disregarding two of the above nominees and forgetting that the others even happened.
I disagree with the article that people picking Frozen hands-down is a bad thing. It beat the competition deservedly.
I honestly don’t know if it should be required that everyone on the panel must watch every single film nominated for every single category - especially since a lot of said films will be completely against their taste.
But I honestly feel that the fact that Monsters University, a cash-in-prequel that really didn’t need to exist, not being nominated means something. Disney just won best animation, without Pixar for the first time in… ever, actually. The award was created in 2001.
The Oscars have problems.
Nowhere near as big as The Grammys (which are now essentially a joke), and not severe enough to discount their opinions entirely. Just y’know - keeps some grains of salt
i get that you just want to make sure everyone is equal and you want to point out how some people are wrong with their social justice but cant we just agree that every person is a human being with rights and get back to whats really important, like the gen 3 remake and skyrim mythology
gather round kiddos, it’s the new anti-sjw comic, new from “piece-o-shit” industries.
or it’s just a comic put together by someone who is genuinely tired and/or stressed out from the large amount of constant social “call outs” on their dash when tumblr is literally their escape to get away from all their problems.
this isnt like the other passive aggressive comics, youre taking it a bit too personal.
Yeah, you can’t really miss the point of the comic much harder than you just did there…
Also - I’m totally seconding it.
I’m genderqueer, homoflexible - blah blah ect.
Honestly - really really just want to talk about Adventure Time and Doctor Who. Without being screamed at for “not being sjw” enough.

im about to recreate this video when i get up in around 10 minutes
Fox’s Gotham announced the casting of two characters that were long rumored for the hour drama - a young, pre-Batman Bruce Wayne and a young Selina Kyle.
Thirteen year old David Mazouz who has appeared on Fox’s Touch will play the emerging hero. Fourteen year Carmen Bicondova, who is new to…
This has great potential to end badly.
Like, if Smallville was set even EARLIER. But lacked the self-discovery of superpowers and a great destiny.
And instead had a VERY young orphan go violently insane.
Prepare yourselves for a likely grimdark and noncanon window into an emotional hellscape…
