I’m constantly telling my twins, “look, when you give something away, it’s no longer yours. It belongs to the person you gave it to, and you should be happy you were able to make them so happy.” Sharing is a big deal in this house, and it’s hard. I get it. You don’t want to give away what you…
So I did not realize that the movie Cate Blanchett was in and that she won the award for was directed by Woody Allen.
So while I endorse her overall message like…

I was just about to post something like this. I didn’t even realize what movie she was in. I should have been paying better attention.
Yup. I couldn’t even enjoy her speech, I fast forwarded it. I like her. A lot. But all I could think about while watching her so happy is that it all came at the expense of a little girl. Fuck Allen and everyone that works with him, Hollywood has blacklisted people for much less than child rape. I just. I hate him so much and I hate the culture that allows him
to thrive even though people know - they know- what he did to his daughters.
As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.”
