Oscar Week: Fun Photo Captions (Day 3)

LOL! Sorry for the LQ screen cap ^ as that was the only one I could find in that particular scene to do fun captions...

Actual lines from 's brilliant portrayal of Queen Victoria in The Young Victoria (which, unfortunately, Emily was snubbed for a Best Actress nomination by not only her country's own BAFTA, but also, the Academy Awards) ...

Queen Victoria: "How dare you spoke of me in that way before! How dare you talk across me as if I were a child!"
Queen Victoria: "I will tell you what you thought. You thought that I was a WOMAN! To be pity, passed over, and ignored."
Queen Victoria: "I told you before and I will tell you again. You are my husband here and that is all!"
