This is what David Crosby said in his tweet about Anya Taylor-Joy winning a Golden Globe:
“She deserves it.’
Here’s what was said in the video:
“Anya Taylor-Joy: The Queen’s Gambit follows Beth Harmon, who is a chess prodigy, who unfortunately is introduced to chess at the same time that she is introduced to sedatives, which causes a certain range of problems.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster: And then it just follows the whole story of pushing that as far as it goes and meeting people and, and learning and developing as an adult, as a woman as a chess player, but all the time, she‘s struggling with addiction, and struggling with I think, kind of a sense of belonging, and a sense of being able to be open enough to be loved.
Quote from the series: Men are gonna come along and teach you things. Doesn’t make them any smarter. You just let them blow by, you go on ahead and do just what you feel like.
Anya Taylor-Joy: One of the things that attracted me the most to Beth was the fact that because she sort of exists outside of society, especially the society at the time, she’s genuinely baffled that people bring her gender into any conversation, like she genuinely does not understand why they’re more interested in her being female, rather than like, the thrashing that she just gave her competitor. And I think, her lack of willingness to play into that stereotype of like, I’m not going to let you make choices for me, I’m going to make my own choices. I found that incredibly empowering, and very liberating to play.”
