If you are an average person like me, winning an Oscar is a pipe dream filled with chokes that will never be cleared. The opening act by Ryan Gosling, ‘I’m just Ken’ was a stark reminder of it.

But underneath the glitz and glamour, Oscar 2024 has left some deeply healing thoughts and speeches.

Emma Stone on Failure

Interview by K5 on “Poor Thing”.

“Failure. Things going wrong…When I really look back, those are the things that helped me to advance and grow the most. I’m not wishing for failure by the way. But when that has happened, I think If anything, it can really be a huge tool to understand more about yourself and to advance and progress and grow”.

Da Vin Joy Randolph on self-acceptance

“…for so long I wanted to be different, and now I realize I just need to be myself. When I said I don’t see myself, you said that’s fine, we’re going to forge our own paths”.

About the underserved communities

“…the beautiful thing that erupts is your imagination and your creativity because you don’t  have much…And so you have this innate ability to create. That’s a gift”.

Billy Eilish on what she would say to a young person.

“Don’t do it for other people, don’t do it for numbers or fame. I want everyone to do the things that they enjoy, proud of and the best version of themselves. You got time. When I was twelve, I watched Mathilda and I felt like I’m never going to make it. Give yourself some time”.
