Oscars 2014 Wrap-up | Best Awards Acceptance Speeches – The Actresses

86th Annual Academy Awards - Press Room

Women equality is a very strong subject in Hollywood. Lately, actresses and women directors around the world have come to fight for more equality and better conditions.The fact that 40 years plus actresses have difficulties to get roles, or that women directors can’t get enough money to shoot  women issues related movies is a big problem in the movie industry right now. But I can feel like this year change has come. First, three famous women hosted the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards.Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Ellen Degeneres  each  did a very good job, in my opinion. And with FIVE actresses nominated, i.e., Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, already in their 40’s,  we can say that women condition has began to change. But there’s still a lot to do.

For an actress who started from a complete unknown to an Oscar-winning actress and style It Girl, Lupita talking about dreams is absolutely adequate. She’s the revelation of this year, she’s run a really effective Oscar campaign -it’s not just that people loved her performance, they love HER.

You’re too old to be standing.

Every Women Studies & Hollywood academic course should take Cate Blanchett Oscars speech as their main content. Cate Blanchett addressed Hollywood industry issues for not valuing female protagonists.

And thank you to… those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women at the center, are niche experiences. They are not — audiences want to see them and, in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people. “.
