Gay actors, actors who play gay characters, and gay themed movies and TV shows were big winners at last nights Golden Globe Awards.
The Kids Are All Right won Best Picture- Comedy and Best Actress for Annette Bening. The Cher-sung song “You Haven’t Heard the Last of Me” from Burlesque, won Best Song. Scott Rudin, the gay producer of the Social Network, won Best Picture – Drama for The Social Network.
In the TV categories, gays cleaned up. Glee, from gay creator Ryan Murphy, won Best TV Comedy series, as well as best supporting performers for the openly gay cast members, Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch. Lynch thanked her wife and kids, and Colfer dedicated his Globe to bullied gay teens in his acceptance speech. Best actor in a TV comedy went to gay actor Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory, who mentioned his husband Todd in his thank-you speech.
Host Ricky Gervais even made subtle reference to two certain “gay scientologists” during his opening monologue.
“Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor — two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay…so the complete opposite of some famous scientologists.”
Another highlight was a presenter referring to Cam & Mitch’s relationship in Modern Family as “two-male.” We assume this is because the word ‘gay’ would have been bleeped out? Bizarre.
