"It’s very scary, but also somehow beautiful. Everything is just overwhelmingly beautiful."
But you cannot tell me that Katniss Everdeen wasn’t one of the top heroes of 2013. Or Elsa and Anna from Frozen. 2013 was a great year for girls in film because it proved twice over that people will go see female heroes—Catching Fire made over $860 million and Frozen just crossed the billion-dollar mark. All three are GOOD characters from GOOD movies, and Jennifer Lawrence is a HUGE star. Why not single her out?
Because girls can’t be heroes. That’s the message. MTV would rather nominate John Cale, Channing Tatum’s character from White House Down. Don’t remember him? Don’t worry, I didn’t either and I actually sat through that garbage. The judgment is that a totally forgettable character in a terrible movie that completely sh*t the bed is of more note than Katniss F*cking Everdeen. Sure, Tatum is very likeable and popular. But so is Jennifer Lawrence. If it’s a star power thing, they’re equals."

After a year of great female heroes in enormously successful films like Catching Fire and Frozen… the MTV movie awards didn’t deign to nominate a single female in its “Best Hero” category. Sending what message exactly?pugetprincess)
