A gala with strong political tone and several claims
The Oscar Awards ceremony from yesterday was a very rare beta, as many opinions that have circulated on social networks. The presenter, Neil Patrick Harris, who publicly declared homosexual few years ago. The music selected, the presence of Julie Andrews and Lady Gaga. And as Argentine corollary, the revelation of Ginna.
He calls himself Ginna but her real name is Mariana. It is paired with Argentine Nicolas Giacobone, one of the writers Oscar winners for their work on the film Birdman. It is a model and actress who broke some time ago in the media as "the beauty of Argentina third gender".
Ginna was known at the time by a strong controversy with Flor de la V, whom distanced to ensure: "I do not even want her to recognize me as a woman, because I am not, nor require the Company that for example I recognize as a mother if I want to adopt someday. my ego is not so high as to impose on society my outlook on life to live. I'm no wife or mother, I am transvestite "had clearly defined Ginna, differing from the transvestite media Flor de la V, a fervent activist "K" had confronted her once a journalist Jorge Lanata for saying exactly what it is: transvestite. It seems that Ginna has never bothered him that the call for what is and is assumed.
Ginna had also starred in a hot production for "Sábado Bus" Nicolás Repetto’s program. So Ginna said. "I was gay child, androgynous teenager, and now consider myself a girl of the third kind because I do not demand to society consider me a woman because I'm not "
The daughter of a Protestant religious family, she paraded as androgynous model for top designers from abroad and in 2011 completed the female figure when Dr. Daniel Grilli (the same that operated butt Andrea Rincón) will put their mammary prosthesis.
In recent times he adopted a low profile to accompany his partner, award-winning writer, who lives in New York. Ginna stormed the Oscars awards with a discreet pink dress and a very modest look that went hand in hand with tuxedo used by your partner, who said that at the after party at the Oscars, Ginna ended up dancing Mick Jagger.
Of course, instead of talking about the talent and the work of fellow who won an Oscar in Argentina now the dominant news is his girlfriend transvestite topic in social networks exploded with comments from all tone and color. A sign of great intellectual immaturity of Argentina society, despite regulatory progress in expanding civil rights.
A political ceremony
There was talk of immigration, equal rights and wages, justice and democracy. At times the Oscars was more like an intense session of Congress, with gestures and speeches filled claims. Something that definitely should not be strange or novel, as politics and cinema usually go together in Hollywood and elsewhere in the world. The art is political. But in the US, Tinseltown is historically a stronghold, and close to the administration of President Barack Obama (except in this case the Republican Clint Eastwood).
Patricia Arquette, who received the Oscar for best actress for Boyhood, demanded equal rights and wages for women, and was hailed with shouts of female audience. The Mexican Alejandro González Iñárritu, big winner of the night with Birdman, called for "respect and dignity" for new immigrants. The singers John Legend and Common also claimed the rights of African Americans after causing excitement with his live performance of Glory, Selma main theme of the film reflecting the march from Selma to Montgomery 50 years ago, in defense of the right to vote the black population. Obama had organized on January 1st screening of the film at the White House, with the cast. "Selma is present because it continues to wage the fight for justice," Legend said, referring to facts trigger-happy against the black population in the US.
And the theme of espionage also slipped when Laura Poitras received the Oscar for best documentary by CitizenFour, based on the informant Edward Snowden and leaks about surveillance programs of the National Security Agency (NSA) American: "I revealed not only presents a threat to privacy, but on democracy itself, "complained Poitras, bluntly. Even the policy also flowed advance on the red carpet, when the actress Reese Witherspoon, nominated for an Oscar, created the #AskHerMore label for frivolous claim that journalists ask for a little more women issues relevant stars on their dresses and necklines.
