Have you guys had the feeling that everything is not awesome lately? From the trivial (Chris Pratt not winning Sexiest Man Alive) to the tragically important (Bill Cosby rape accusations), the infuriatingly important (large swaths of the response to the Bill Cosby rape accusations) to the WTF? Are you serious? (Seven people dying in New York due to the extreme weather conditions. Seven!), it has been a terrible week. Terrible.
Do you feel like you need a little break? Just a quick reprieve before diving back into the rape culture/ climate change/ standard beauty ideals fight? I got you. Because not everything is awesome right now, but you know who is? Emma Thompson.
Emma Thompson is awesome. And she’s winning the Richard Harris Award at this year’s British Independent Film Award ceremony because of it. Well technically she’s winning it for her outstanding contribution to British film, but mostly because she’s awesome.
So let’s get all into that awesomeness. I could talk about her amazing career, including the fact that she’s the only artist to win Academy Awards for both acting and screenwriting. Or her extensive charity work. But if we’re being really real, we need to talk about her red carpet and various interview work. Take it in people. Take it in.
Emma, I hope I’m not being too forward, but I would like to have your babies. Anything you’d like to say to all of the current terribleness?
