cypsiman2: I still believe in my dreams (Your writing is bad)
According to commercials I've just seen, Hailee Steinfeld, the lead of True Grit, has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in her role as Mattie, while Jeff Bridges was nominated for Best Actor in his supporting role as Rooster Cogburn. This is a load, to put it mildly; Not only was Hailee Steinfeld marvelously acted and impeccably well written, but she was far more of a protagonist than you get with most male leads in most movies, who are content to react to everything, have it all spelled out for them, and generally get dragged along by the ear to fulfill their designated lead duties. Mattie? Every step of the way, she is pushing, forcing, and driving the plot and being damn badass all the while. But no, the academy can't recognize her as the lead, because that would be counter to all our preconceptions about how these sorts of things work. Never mind that at the very least, the only reason I was even interested in seeing this movie was because it was about Mattie, and not Rooster. So, as the subject line says, I am outraged.

So, as I mentioned in my previous post, I've been reading two shonen series lately; Fairy Tail, which has been a lot of a lot of fun and one which I look forward to reading for however long it runs...and then there's the other one, Katekyo Hitman Reborn.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn, not so fun shonen. And spoilers. )

Well, that's the two series I've been reading lately, I hope this has been informative for you all out there.
