Monday Cute/Awesome/Attitude Role Model: Quvenzhané Wallis on the Red Carpet


Not shown: the reporter who decided to call her “Annie” (her next film role) rather than learn how to pronounce her name beforehand, and got yelled at by a nine-year-old. True story. But it wasn’t just about meeting reporters for Wallis. It seems like she made quite a few new friends at the Oscars:

And just for one extra measure of cute, or awesome, or attitude role model, here’s what Wallis was doing every time the camera did a post-film-clip-of-her focus on her:

    She definitely was the It Girl of the night. I’m sure everyone wanted to meet her. I sure would have. :D

    The treatment this child has received, coming to a head with the Onion’s “joke”, is just utterly appalling. This kid is 9 years old and was talented enough to be nominated for one of our nation’s highest acting honors and even that wasn’t enough to keep her safe from how much our culture just hates black women.

    What treatment is that? Being lauded at every turn? Having people constantly praise her?

    Being called the c word, having people joke about her “ghetto” name, and then being the butt of a joke about George Clooney having sex with her.

    I didn’t watch most of the awards, but I assume that joke was done by Seth McFarlene, who I fucking hate. He’s seriously the most overrated person currently working in the entertainment industry today, and is only famous because some people apparently have trouble discerning between, “politically incorrect and cruel” and “funny.”

    Huh – either something is funky with the comment system, or TMS disliked my use of the f-word. I commented that Seth McFarlene is both overrated and unfunny, and the only reason people think he’s funny is that they have a hard time telling the difference between “racist, sexist and insulting” and “funny.” Can you imagine if a black comedian did half of the crap that he did?

    She makes me want to see Beasts something terrible. I need to watch that movie.

    Yup, something is definitely wonky.

    …or women in general. As adorable as she is, I’m hoping her parents just pull her the hell out of Hollywood ASAP. That snake-pit cesspool is NOT a place for children. I remember how cute everyone thought Lindsey was…

    It’s not just women in general. Sexism is a huge problem in general but we need to acknowledge that race does play a big part in it as well, especially in Hollywood. I mean there’s a reason why women of color don’t have nearly the diversity of roles offered to them that white women get.

    I’m not saying it doesn’t. Race does play a huge factor into how women are treated in Hollywood, and there is definitely more than just one reason why WOC roles are so limited. What upsets me more is that regardless of her race, this blatant, disrespectful, and patronizing behaviour was aimed at a child. Seriously, sex w/ Clooney jokes? There are plenty of reasons to be pissed off at all this…

    She is adorable. She looked like a tiny little princess!
