Yeah, they are all so "˜daring' and everything is a "˜risk'. Can someone tell me what exactly these idiots are on about? It's like they live in a different world to the rest of society. Sean Penn and Cate Blanchett would have you believe they are saving the world. It's a big backslapping session by a bunch of twats.

They even tried taking unusual camera shots of her to no avail. She still took up the entire frame on every single one of them.
What about Oprah? "˜On Monday... on Tuesday... on Wednesday... and tonight... Meryl Streep'. STFU! Honestly, they should be winning Streeps. And what the hell is Oprah even doing there?

'Forgo what's popular to do what's right'. We're still talking about films here, right? They're all one moment away from the most cathartic moment of their lives. It's a f***in' group counselling session is what it is.
The big positive was the stage IMO. It looked beautiful.
