It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. So I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own.
Lupita Nyong’o (via sonofafieldnegro)
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.
But for real, you know who would be more excited about the year of Luigi more than Luigi himself?
I can see him running around all giddy and being like HEY GUYS DID YOU KNOW IT’S LUIGI’S YEAR? THE YEAR OF LUIGI? MY BROTHER HAS HIS OWN YEAR AND IT’S GONNA BE AWESOME AND I’M SO PROUD OF HIM. AREN’T YOU GUYS EXCITED??? I’M EXCITED
and everybody else is like Mario jfc you need to chill
