fantasyland

did anyone tune into the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend? I stopped watching after Reese Witherspoon received the Generation Award for which she gave a really memorable & humorous speech. there aren't enough actresses like her that girls can look up to these days. given that Twilight won nearly every award (including female performance! Natalie Portman got robbed) I honestly fear the future of cinema, but at the same time it's MTV not the Oscars.



what brings me here on my blog, other than the fact that I'm completely bored, is this resemblance I saw between the set design of the MTV Movie Awards and the latest runway show of Stolen Girlfriends Club. the fantasy genre seems to be trending in the arts. I love that these creative people can bridge the modern, real world with the fantasy so that we can live through it in what we wear, and where we travel.

With "The Twilight Saga" and "Harry Potter" as the leading the nominees, Executive Producer Mark Burnett said the feel of this show also reflects those fantastical worlds that are ruled by wizards, werewolves and vampires. "I think there's been a lot of movies in the last few years that are very fantasy-driven," he said, adding that Tim Burton had been a major inspiration for the stage design

I was kind of sad that Twilight won everything too. It's like having one person win all the categories in a pop poll or something :/ That Rob and Taylor kiss was unnecessary too x_x
