Martina, right? lol.
So how about that costume?
The fact is, if they can’t get simple years right that could be checked on wikipedia, what else do they pull out of their ass?
This pleases me that someone did this because I seriously did think of this moment in Friends tonight when that happened on The Vampire Diaries…
I just thought that whole seen in TVD was funny…and I knew that with them calling her and such that she would figure it out… it did make for a great episode.
Something tells me I’m about five centuries delayed on believing in the whole ‘higher power’ thing.
Bye for now Katherine.

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.
2013 has been kind of a blur. There’s been a lot of good and some bad. It’s been a whirlwind and I think I will always remember being very tired but excited. In 2014 I’m looking forward to peace and rest. I’d like to slow down; I’d like a little less attention; I’d like to buy a house and have a home. So 2013 was a really exciting whirlwind and I’d like 2014 to be kind of an unwinding, peaceful time.
