reminder that live television is really fucking hard esp with large set pieces and a huge ensembles and audio and no actual live audience to feed off of so even though you thought it was shit they fucking pull it off and got most of america to watch a fucking classic musical and probably inspired a bunch of little kids and told them that there is a place for their voices in primetime and that talent and hard work are precious things and nbc showcased that along with some of the best that broadway’s got to offer.
Also Beth McCarthy-Miller is fantastic and should win an Emmy and every other freaking award out there for tonight’s broadcast.
why do guys call girls “cunts” anyway though
why would you insult someone by referring to them as the only thing about them that actually matters to you
when I get mad at my boyfriend I don’t call him “salary”
You want to have your cake, eat it…and fuck the baker, too. —

Dear Karl, you just got told.
My big sister learned to walk this year.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible,
and when I leave you will finally understand
why storms are named after people. —Katrina M. K (via algenubi)
Sandra Bullock’s box office take over the last five years is as good or better than most male leads. The same can be said of Melissa McCarthy, who also has the attention of about 10 million viewers a week on Mike and Molly when she’s not on the big screen. Both of them have been integral to the marketing and promotion of their films, so it’s clearly not that moviegoers won’t watch a blockbuster with a woman in the lead.
But in very specific terms, Gravity was marketed as a co-headlining movie from Bullock and George Clooney, but anyone who saw it knows that it was Bullock’s film. Clooney was perceived as being necessary to market the movie in spite of the fact that since 2008, his movies have generated about $634 million total at the domestic box office, compared to Bullock’s $891 million. During that time, Clooney made nine films to Bullock’s six, meaning that the per-film average is even more heavily skewed in Bullock’s favor.
During that time, the total budget for Clooney’s films came to a minimum of $307 million and the budget for Bullocks clocked in at $214 million. That means that for every dollar spent producing a George Clooney film, the studio saw $2.07 back. That isn’t half bad, really. You know what it is half of? The $4.15 they saw on every Sandra Bullock dollar they spent during the same five-year period. Each of them had a couple of low-budget indie films and a couple of failures during the five-year period, but Clooney–the name Warner Bros. was convinced was necessary to promote the film–averaged just over $70 million per film during that period while Bullock averaged upwards of $148 million.
