Oscar-nominated director and all-around bad-ass Lee Daniels dropped by the newly opened Paramount Theatre this
past Tuesday to talk to a group of Emerson students about walking the
road not taken, believing in your dreams, and loving your kids even if
they pop out straight ugly.As a speaker, Daniels proved to be
disarmingly charming. Which didn't stop him from dropping some serious
F-bombs all over the room, to the delight of the audience of aspiring
directors, actors, and producers. Chatting about his close loss of Best Director at the Directors Guild Awards earlier this year, he joked, "Fucking Kathryn Bigelow, man."
