“I just have a quick question before I start on my barrage of thanks: Why were there only FIVE female nominations to SIX male nominations? Did anyone SEE Greta Gerwig in ‘Frances Ha’? EXTRAORDINARY. Maybe they didn’t have enough space?”—Cate Blanchett, accepting her Best Female Lead Spirit Award (via kateoplis)
“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready.

He calls his character a “creature.” He says the hardest part about playing the character is staying in the makeup. He says he’s met “transgendered” people who talked to him about their lives. And that’s not even mentioning his Golden Globes speech
“Running used to feel like a chore. The day I truly became a runner was the day that I realized that being sedentary now felt like a chore. Running makes me feel relaxed, healthy, and great. Not running makes me feel like a bloated pile of uninspired, forgettable crap.

Last year I wrote an article for The Huffington Post on reasons I love being a Chicagoan. But why should 2012 have all the fun? Here’s 40 reasons I’m looking forward to another year in the city of wind and LeBron hatred.
1. The endless opportunities to bash Rahm. His recent decisions suggest that he’s running for re-election as the mayor of Hell. At this point, I think more Chicagoans approve of herpes than his job in office.
