Sunday/ 87th Academy Awards

I had the Academy Awards on on Sunday night while I made dinnerboyhood and watched some of it, saw Patricia Arquette get her Oscar for
Best Supporting Actress in Boyhood.  We had watched it on Saturday night, and so I was rooting for it for Best Film (which went to Birdman with Michael Keaton).   Meryl Streep and others jumped up when  Patricia Arquette said ‘to every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights‘ .. ‘it’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America’.   But as TIME magazine reports soon after that Arquette was being attacked on social media by people who said she was prioritizing the rights of white women over those of LGBTQ people and people of color.
