La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.

Estamos obcecados. Passamos 80% do nosso tempo falando de Nasce Uma Estrela. E como a obsessão é geral, fizemos uma thread com as melhores curiosidades do filme! #NasceUmaEstrela
Assim como aconteceu com Jack e Ally, Bradley Cooper e Lady Gaga se conheceram enquanto a cantora performava "La Vie en Rose"
Nasce Uma Estrela foi filmado em 42 dias 😱 e as performances foram gravadas ao vivo em festivais como Coachella e Glastonbury

BREAKING: In a ruling that could have widespread repercussions throughout the TV industry, Fox has been hit with a $178.7 million judgment in its profit participation dispute with the team behind #Bones…
At the heart of the #Bones dispute was whether Fox engaged in so-called “self-dealing” — hiding profits from the show to avoid compensating key talent and producers
The #Bones dispute pitted stars like @EmilyDeschanel & producers against Fox. The award ($179M) is among the largest of its kind. The biggest was $319M — a 2011 case with Disney & “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”

I was much younger when I recall learning, from my mother, that her beloved grandparents were big fans of Al Jolson of "Mammy" fame. She loved them very much and told me many stories of what they taught her and how they loved her. So one day, I asked her why were 1/?
these grandparents fans of someone who performed in blackface? Didn't they see that he was someone who got rich off of parodying black folks? She shook her head and said no. "They were so happy to have some type of representation, to see what they thought of as a blackface in 2/?
the movies that they were fans." So I find myself thinking about my great-grandparents today, about 100 years later, wondering what they might think of that representation now that we've had a Black president, mayors, senators, entertainment figures, etc. I wonder if they 3/?

Leaving R. Lee Ermey off the In Memoriam segment is an embarrassing moment in an already-bad #Oscars. He was one of the most iconic and recognizable actors of the last 3 decades. Toy Story, Full Metal Jacket, Seven. This is rock bottom, @TheAcademy. Shameful.
A lot of people here have speculated that it was Ermey's politics that got him snubbed. I disagree. Burt Reynolds was a pretty notable friend of Trump and even voted for him. And he was in there. Sadly, I think it was a reflection of how the Academy viewed Ermey as an actor...
...which is actually much worse. R. Lee Ermey was iconic and instantly recognizable to even the most casual movie-watcher. His debut role in Full Metal Jacket is film legend. He was a significant part of the most beloved animated film series of all time (Toy Story)...

In #BlackPanther, a unique metal called #vibranium helped the fictional African nation of #Wakanda become the most technologically advanced country on the planet.

#ReelvsRealCIA #Oscars

Do you think vibranium is:
The #vibranium in Black Panther’s suit protects him from kinetic damage, & vibranium sneakers are both super-quiet & amazing shock absorbers for jumping. Those would be great for spies, right?

Too bad vibranium isn’t real.

#ReelvsRealCIA #BlackPanther
The magic metal from #Wakanda might not exist, but there are real-life materials that possess some similar qualities to those of the fictional Wakandan isotope, #vibranium.

#24feb hoy, noche de los #Oscars⁠ ⁠

que se ha convertido en un show de la izquierda global para su propaganda traigo la foto que los #progresistas no quieren que se sepa.

Tomada en #Venezuela Frontera del estado #Bolívar #23feb.
En esta foto vemos como dos efectivos de la Guardia Nacional que dirige .@NicolasMaduro apresan a una chica adolescente de la tribu aborigen #Pemón.

¿Dónde están los luchadores globales por lo derechos de niños y niñas?
¿Dónde están los defensores de la mujer? ¿Les feministes?

¿Dónde están los defensores de los pueblos originarios y autóctonos?

¿Dónde está los defensores de las etnias minoritarias? ¿Los que luchan contra el racismo?

1. Lots of controversy around the #Oscars this year but I'm surprised no one has brought up that someone many people see as part of Harvey Weinstein's complicity machine is being called out. The co-producer of the Oscars this year, Donna Gigliotti
2. As many of you know, I have written a bunch of stories about Weinstein over the past 16 months. I've gotten to know over two dozen Weinstein survivors through my reporting. When I told 8 of them that Gigliotti was producing the #Oscars they were horrified and upset
3. Background: Donna Gigliotti was an executive at Miramax for many years before she left and produced Shakespeare in Love with Weinstein and that year they won the Oscar for Best Picture but that's not why she's part of the Weinstein complicity machine.

Você sabia que já tivemos uma freira no #Oscars 😯✨
Nos anos 50 e 60, Dolores Hart era uma jovem e linda estrelinha em ascenção no cinema, fazia filmes com os galãs...entre eles: Elvis Presley! #Oscars
Em 1962, na última vez em que Dolores caminhou sobre o tapete vermelho (como atriz) rumo ao Academy Awards, ela era uma jovem atriz, cujo contrato valia US$ 1 milhão e que foi a 1º a beijar Elvis na telona. 🙈

Extemely unpopular #Oscars opinion: I thought BLACK PANTHER was just okay, and more a cultural phenomenon than a great film.
I've seen only two of the other BP nominees. VICE is self-indulgent and unfocused, but made me angry in the way it intended. ROMA is gorgeous and moving, though hard to watch at times. Honestly, my favorite film of 2018 was BUSTER SCRUGGS. #Oscars
Last #Oscars thought: it's amusing that a plot point in ROMA involves the movie MAROONED, which was recut for TV and retitled SPACE TRAVELERS - and which was featured on #MST3K.

Billy Porter just set the bar impossibly high for #Oscars fashion.
Drag queens are at the #Oscars because a movie they’re in is nominated for Best Picture. That is so fucking epic. So proud of Shangela and Willam 💕
I've just noticed that Elsie Fisher & Jodie Comer look A LOT alike so officially requesting a film where they play the same character at different ages #Oscars

Between 2017 and 2018, the #Oscars, #Grammys, and #GoldenGlobes lost 14 million viewers around the world, and there is a lot of shocked questioning in America on why this is happening. The reason is simple, though it would be hard for America to accept it. For a long time, the
rest of the world accepted Western culture as the epitome of artistic achievement and took at its cues from Western culture. But slowly and subtly this has changed. The West, especially America, does not charm people by its lifestyle anymore. In fact in the East a lot of people
now feel that the lifestyle that American-style capitalism triggered is harmful not only for individual lifestyles but also for the world (for instance in energy consumption). Also, American values are no longer seen as the ones that people want to emulate, especially in Asia

Hello. If you follow Small Stories, please know that today’s story will be Quinn Has Thoughts About #Oscar2019 dresses.
Love the cut on Amandla, am sure this color looks better in person.

Stylists, please find some way of checking this. What is "Antique silver" in person is "Taupe" on a computer.

Danielle McDonald looks adorable, the cut and color is lovely but it needed one more fitting around the abdomen. I failed Sewing three times, I shouldn't have to tell you this.
