Natalie-Grant-Christian-anti-gay
"Christian" contemporary artist Natalie Grant just couldn't with the gay marriage at the Grammys. Note to Nat: Watching people do something you disagree with doesn't make you less of a Christian, and walking away so you can't see it doesn't make you more of one.

UPDATE: Even more pathetically, this poor, fragile flower apparently left because Katy Perry was too racy for her. Welcome to the 21st Century.

Colonel Sanders Says It Best: That Was Finger-Lickin' Good Comments (0)

Madonna-Mary-Lambert-Macklemore-Ryan-Lewis-gay-marriage-weddings-GrammysQuit with the cane second-guessing—the bitch hurt herself...read a blog!

Before the telecast, a lot of gays who are better, smarter and more important gays than YOU, were kvetching that Madonna was replacing Mary Lambert, that she was usurping the song, and even that Madonna (and non-gay Macklemore) were using gays by marketing to us.

To all of that, I say: You're way too hooked on conspiracy-theory movies.

Without straight allies, gay people would have needed to enginer a coup. Even then, we've always been completely outnumbered, and most of our own ranks have always been too scaredy-cat to even stand up for themselves. To this day, we have famous gay people who are infamously closeted. Queen Latifah, admittedly in a glass closet, is not even on the record as gay. She has steadfastly refused to be so. So don't look down your elitist noses when true, sincere straight allies come your way. You need them way more than they need a small fraction of 10% of the population's dollars.

All that said, the fears were for naught—that performance of "Same Love," which seamlessly incorporated Madonna for impact, was probably deeply moving to a lot of people you may have already written off as unreachable. The song itself makes me tear up. To hear a straight man rap that he thought he was gay as a kid and to know he made that into a hit song moves me. It's meaningful in our culture. When I saw that the couples were not all gay couples but were straight and gay, that struck me as an obviously inclusive touch that I hadn't foreseen.

There Will Be Snubs: Oscar Nominations Are Here Comments (0)

Giphy

The Oscar nominations are here, and there were some surprising oversights. To me, the most shocking snub was of Tom Hanks for Best Actor; he's beloved and has been getting plenty of notice for that performance. The second biggest snub would be that of Oprah Winfrey. Her film was not acclaimed, but her performance was. Not as shocking as when the Globes blew her off, though! They are starfuckers.

Lesser surprises would be the absence of Emma Thompson (good performance in a good movie, but it was not nearly as good as Amy Adams's nuanced turn in American Hustle, so I'll live) and Robert Redford (Jesus, he is Mr. Movies with that Sundance commitment...really, guys??? And he was in a one-man movie!)

Here are all the nominees, with my notes on the ones you probably care about and my selections for "will win" in pink.

Golden Moments Comments (0)

Golden-Globes

The best Golden Globes takes so far are from Mia Farrow (above), who was not even gonna try with the Woody Allen tribute, and from Colton Haynes (below), whose closet door isn't glass but is instead a handy bedsheet.

Colton-Haynes

I think Amy and Tina are insanely suited to this kind of thing and it was gratifying that Amy finally won a goddamned award for "Leslie Knope."

It was nice that Jackie Bisset won her first award ever for anything, though she kicked off a lot of long, uncomfortable pauses in acceptance speeches, as well as long journeys from disadvantageous seating.

I was happy for Leo DiCaprio; just saw and loved Wolf of Wall Street (great movie about terrible people I wish all died at the end), the second movie in which he's ever  impressed me. 

Amy Adams was incandescently amazing in American Hustle, so I'm on board with that win, too.

I'd never so much as heard of Brooklyn 99 before, so I'll have to seek it out.

Michael Douglas's "mincing" comment was annoying, but what do you expect from the son of Natalie Wood's rapist? He was totally overrated in the totally overrated Behind the Candelabra.

I'm dying that Steve McQueen called Sarah Paulsen the "Bette Davis of America." Dude, Bette Davis was the Bette Davis of America and there is no connection there. You'd be better off calling Jared Leto the Bette Davis of America.

I'll update this as the show draws to a close, but...what did you think?

 
Jeez, Luise!: Luise Rainer Turns 104 Comments (0)

Luise-Rainer

Luise Rainer, the oldest living Oscar winner (she won two in a row as Best Actress in the '30s), turns—get ready for this—104 today. To put that into perspective, she's only four years younger than Greta Garbo would be today, and Garbo's been dead nearly a quarter of a century...after living to a fairly ripe old age!

Tumblr_m6mx0k8Apr1qan75no1_500From The Great Ziegfeld (1936)

Rainer is within striking distance of becoming that rarest of things—a supercentenarian (110+) famous for more than longevity alone.
