Update: Thanks for your donation today Emilie! We needed it! :D
This time last year with the fundraiser, roughly 40% of the monies raised was donated in the final 10 days of the fundraiser. A lot of second donations were made in this time frame, but most importantly, high donation amounts from first time donations were made in the final days, and I'm hoping that is the case for this year.
Please DONATE today or very soon to be added into the fundraiser raffle and have your name added onto the Birthday certificate card to Michael on his April 2nd birthday. Thanks!
Now that the award season is over, I'm looking through magazines that have a wrap-up of the awards season, and sadly, many of the very high profile industry magazines, like The Hollywood Reporter, completely FAILED to mention Michael Fassbender's name, let alone post a picture of him. Michael was an Oscar nominee, but yet only pictures of the other 12YAS stars, director and producer and screenwriter were highlighted in the March 14th edition of this magazine. It went overboard with the American actors who won this year, but they couldn't be bothered with a guy who poured his heart and soul into his Oscar nominated role. Such a shame. It's not as if they don't know who Michael Fassbender is, they just don't care about him and choose to ignore him. I think that because he doesn't play the game, he's not on the bullshit popularity radar. And I'm fine with that, especially after what I have witnessed this past Oscar season. I'm still so tired from it all that I haven't been back to Awards Daily, I'm just exhausted from discussing movies, movies, movies and their award winning potential. Some obsessed Oscar watchers have already, pathetically, posted up their predictions for 2014. Yes, it's ridiculous and I just ignored it like the sad fools they are. But I digress...
This year is going to be great in watching Michael Fassbender films. And you know what, I haven't heard a peep about that Malik film that Michael filmed over a year ago. Sadly, it's not very high on my radar of films to watch because I don't know jack about it and it's been... over a year since we heard anything about it. So bring on Frank, bring on MacBeth, bring on Slow West, bring on Assassin's Creed!
Oh, and don't forget, please DONATE! :-)
