Gay Love Fest

The Golden Globes were held last night, and as usual Hollywood couldn't wait to get on its moral pedastal and preach morality down to the throng (us).

I think these comments kind of capture the 'spirit' of the events:

The cowboy romance "Brokeback
Mountain
" led the Golden Globes on Monday with four prizes, including
best
dramatic film and the directing honor for Ang
Lee
...

It was a triumphant night for films dealing with
homosexuality and
transsexuality. Along with the victories for "Brokeback
Mountain," acting honors
went to Felicity
Huffman
in a gender-bending role as a man preparing for sex-change
surgery
in "Transamerica"
and Philip Seymour
Hoffman
as gay author Truman Capote in "Capote."

"I
know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as
people
our job is to become who we really are and so I would like to salute the
men
and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to
become who they really are," Huffman said as she accepted her
award.

Director Lee's "Brokeback Mountain," the story of two rugged
Western
family men (Heath Ledger
and Jake
Gyllenhaal
) concealing their affair, has emerged as a front-runner for
the
Oscars — which occasionally have handed out top acting prizes for
performers in
homosexual or gender-bending roles but have never given the
best-picture Oscar
to a gay-themed film.

"Brokeback Mountain"
also won for best screenplay and song, "A Love That
Will Never Grow Old."
I think that I'm definately going to be ill.
