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)

I feel like I’ve been 60 - 65 internally my whole life so I feel like the older I get the more comfortable I get because I feel like I’m just getting closer to the age that I am in my heart.

"I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it."

[ Greta Gerwig on the importance of women as screenwriters | x ]

It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party, and you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes but not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end and it’s this secret world that exists right there, in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.

When I was 12, I realized that I would never be a professional dancer. In ballet, if your body is not right, it becomes self-flagellation, which is, I guess, its own pleasure, but that wasn’t enough for me. Before I quit, I played Clara in The Nutcracker with the Sacramento Ballet, which was a very big deal. My teacher said to me, ‘You know, they only gave you the part because of your personality.’ For the rest of my life, that tape has been in my head: I feel like everything I’ve achieved was because of my personality, rather than my ability. —Greta Gerwig

This will make me sound crazy, but I think right now my great love is movies and I think I would be devastated if movies broke up with me.
