Cate Blanchett’s acceptance speech may have read feminist, and her wording was beautiful. Except of course her thanking of Woody Allen (whose adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has come out publicly about her abuse at the hand of her proto-father) and intentional framing of him as a feminist film maker, that everyone seems so fast to ignore in congratulating her for ‘calling out the Academy.’
Blue Jasmine saw no other nominations or awards for a reason, and her acting deserved all it won, but Cate Blanchett chose to reinforce an industry that values male filmmakers and celebrities like Woody Allen over the children and young women they abuse and violate. That doesn’t sound very feminist to me.
Whoa whoa whoa THIS HAPPENED AT THE OSCARS?
Why is this my first time hearing of it?

I grew up in England in the countryside in basically farmland and forests. I was read fairy tales before bedtime and I was totally the young girl who loved fairy tale princesses.
