Tiffany Haddish Challenges Black Panther

Remember when the MTV Movie Awards used to be a big enough deal that they would air over the weekend and actually stir up excitement? Well, those days are long gone, because last night, which was a Monday, brought the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards to air. They came and went without much pomp and circumstance, but at the very least Black Panther came away with awards for Best Movie, Best Hero for Chadwick Boseman and Best Villain for Michael B. Jordan.

Star Wars Fandom

I love Star Wars.

In our current defensive, insular fandom climate, that’s a contentious thing to admit. But I love it still, and I love its fans, and I love the warmth the movies – all of them, even the bad ones – give me, and have always given me, and will continue to give me forevermore. I’ve always been a fan, but it reached a crescendo in 2015, when The Force Awakens resurrected what had sat dormant for more than a decade. A special, familial, dreamlike pleasantness that starts with a blue serif font before catapulting my heart and imagination into a galaxy beyond.

I’m speaking so romantically of Star Wars because it’s easy to forget what brought us to these movies in the first place. As the Twitter war machine loads another round of ammunition, as the new creators are forced to protect themselves and their talent from vitriolic personal attacks, as conversations about the brokenness of fandom poison our timelines – and our spirit – we slip further and further into an empty void of endless, cyclical diatribe. Nothing changes, nothing gets better, things just dredge on with a savage melancholy that clashes diametrically with the essence of the thing we’re fighting about.

It’s called Star Wars. It’s about love.
