One thing. Concerning oscars, LOTR movies got nominated 31 times, and won 17 of those nominations. Harry Potter movies got nominated 12 times, and won 0 of those nominations. P.S. This is excluding The Fantastic Beasts franchise and The Hobbit movies.
It is just the lifestyle. It isn't healthy. I am a Protestant Christian. I respect LGBTQ+ people because they are people who have rights. What I don't respect is the World's view on everything, such as the World's respect for LGBTQ+ everything. The people I don't hate. The lifestyle I do hate. I am not a friend of the World. I am a friend of Jesus Christ, my lord, king, and savior. (James 4:4)
The Silmarillion is the story behind the Silmarils and the desire to have them. In The Silmarillion there are wars, The Years of The Trees, The First Age, and Many other stories, Such as "Beren and Luthien". If your version has "Alkallabeth" and "Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age", you will have read about The Fall of Numenor and about the Rings of Power and the Third Age before the events of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings". It is a great book to start reading and finish reading. Well, I hope this helps.
