I don’t own a TV, so watching a certain (inter)national phenomenon of fashion faux pas and one too many politically incorrect speeches involving some golden statues and generally white, uniform casts is not the highest priority on my mind. But I do own a Twitter account, and come February, there will be some snarky remarks on the Oscars whether I like it or not.
Maybe you’ve all seen this already. I just thought it was brilliant and wanted to share the story* anyway.
Making a living and providing for your family is no easy job in this culture that values money above all else. Trying to accomplish that while pursuing your dream that doesn’t pay is even tougher. Watching someone you love struggle through it and supporting her/him to continue running hard after the dream must be an art in itself.
Hats off to you Mrs. Lee — there would be no Asian American Oscar-winning director today if not for you.
