Princess of the Night: Quvenzhané WallisPosted: February 25, 2013
So the Oscars happened. I dunno, I was bored. Though when I think about it, it’s usually boring? At least no one film swept everything… Those years are endless even when it’s a film I care about and possibly I didn’t care about the films this year, because I didn’t have time to see most of them, so. Also, I didn’t like McFarlane’s humor and the pacing was really weird and the “celebrate music in movies” thing came off more like “these are the people who agreed to show up and perform” — they’re stars, right? Who cares about cohesion. Also Bond films are totally all about the music, duh. I mean, YES, the credit songs are part of the formula but “let’s celebrate music in movies with a Bond retrospective” is NOT COHESIVE.
Anyway, other than Aaron Tveit (swooooon), the best part of the broadcast was Little Q:
She is a star. She is a superhero. She is royalty.
That controversy exists around a nine year old who carries puppy purses everywhere she goes is pretty much everything that is wrong with society and social media and satire. All of those things have a good side, but that is the dark and ugly side.
Quvenzhané is a warrior. She’s a warrior.
There were a few princess dresses on the red carpet last night. But, come on, we gotta give it to the nine year old wearing the jeweled headband. She could wear exactly this to the Magic Kingdom. In fact, Disney should invite her right now. She should get a day.
Princess Quvenzhané Wallis Day.
Make it so.
