Benedict Cumberbatch touched by Lupita’s acceptance speech
Oh god Benedict, the last one, look at him. Such a touching moment.
i think this is absolutely great. i love ben because he shows the world what it is to be an exemplary human being. he cries when he’s touched, and that makes him even tougher than any other man i know. he has that humor in him that allows him to freaking photobomb U2 and Ellen. I just really love Ben, and I eagerly await the day when the whole world will be screaming his name.
Okay i resisted reblogging this but i can’t-
Everyone has a watery eye, but but Benedict is just crying. Do you wanna know why? Because that girl up there is his friend, someone he’s worked with and befriended. He clearly appreciates her acting, and he’s so touched by her winning what she wanted since she was a child, and he just doesn’t even try to hide his tears.
This is why I love Benedict so much.
(and amen to “…I eagerly await the day when the whole world will be screaming his name”)
I will always reblog this. 😘
Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?
Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.
First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.
Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.
So fuck any noise where people say audience don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible.
That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.
