On Sunday, February 9, Natalie Portman attended the 92nd Academy Awards in style.

The actress has been nominated for an Oscar three times and won once.

At the 2020 awards, she not only looked great in a Dior cape, but she also dressed to make a statement.


The cloth was embroidered with the names of many female directors snubbed by the Academy in this year's nominations.

While the films they worked on received nominations, the women did not. This is not the first time such a discrepancy has been noted.

Twitter fell in love with the cape, showering Portman with praise for wearing it.




Portman has been a Hollywood icon for years.

That won't be changing any time soon.


Portman has used many of her opportunities on a large stage to stand up for equal representation for women.



Even if her cape wasn't sending a powerful message...it still looked great.


Portman's gesture inspired many women to continue pursuing their dreams and achieve success.

And in case you were wondering who all the names on that cape were...

Well done, Natalie Portman, you're making a positive impact on the movie making industry.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
