Matthew McConaughey Only White Man To Thank God In Acceptance Speech?

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Events, Celebrity Movie, Celebrity News, Celebrity Quotes, Movies | 1 comment

First off let me just say, I love me some Matthew Mcconaughey from the moment I first heard his name. Then to find out he plays the bongos naked while smoking weed, made me adore him even more. Then I find out he likes women of color, too. Woo! Sorry, I’m so off subject here. We’re suppose to be discussing this beautiful acceptance speech (below) from this FAHN man:

Last night Matthew Mcconaughey won an Oscar for Best Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, a movie about AIDS patients in 1985 working around the US system to get access to AZT,  a drug banned by the FDA during US clinical trials, yet available across the border in Mexico for experimental treatment.

Lupita Wins Oscar For Best Supporting Actress At The 86th Academy Awards

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Fashion, Celebrity Hair, Celebrity Movie, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos, Celebrity Quotes, Celebrity Red Carpet, Movies | Comments Off

I am sure you’re all around a water cooler somewhere discussing the big win last night. Lupita Nyong’o graciously added the title Academy Award Winner to her resume last night when she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. As soon as her name was called I felt my eyes watering, and of course when she started speaking I couldn’t hold back the tears. I don’t know what was so magical about the moment exactly, but it felt like the first time ever that a black woman has won the honor of Best Supporting Actress, although it’s not. Maybe it’s the way she graces the red carpet, and seeing another standard of beauty before my eyes. Or maybe it’s the fact that dreams really do come true, or as she said in her acceptance speech, that they are “valid”.

Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for her first role straight out of Yale; that’s rare in and of itself. So maybe it’s because she looks like Cinderella and we’re all witnesses to her first dance at the ball:

When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
