The Emmys Are The New Black: Full List Of Nominees Comments (0)

Oitnb-redMulgrew had better win—she gives one of the best performances I've ever seen on TV.

The Emmy nominations are in, and I'm happy Orange Is the New Black got so much love...including for trans woman Laverne Cox! We've come a long way since Milton Berle. (Though I'm sad the men were overlooked—they're fantastic in their supporting roles.)

The Normal Heart was also showered with attention.

Meanwhile, that Ellen Burstyn—a brilliant actress with many amazing performances behind her—could be nominated for her ridiculous performance in the ridiculous Flowers in the Attic should make everyone involved realize that the Emmys will starfuck any movie star any time they deign to appear on the small screen.

Full list of Emmy nominees after the jump, with my predictions in blue...

JohnDuka79_pr0“John Duka” (1977) by Alan Kleinberg

The New York Times has run a compelling, tantalizingly short piece on its former style editor, John Duka, the man presumed to have been the inspiration for Larry Kramer's Felix from The Normal Heart. What an interesting, short life.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **1/2 out of ****

I feel bad admitting this, but I didn't love Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart. I think having seen the recent Broadway revival—which along with August: Osage County, is the best straight play I've ever seen—set the bar too high for the HBO version.

But while I was underwhelmed, there was much to admire. Let's get the negatives out of the way first:

The Abnormal Art: Matt Bomer Transformative Role Comments (0)

Matt-watermarkx633

According to the June/July 2014 cover story of Out, Matt Bomer's beauty almost lost him his plum part in HBO's upcoming TV event The Normal Heart. Kramer worried Bomer was too pretty to play “Felix Turner,” who is stricken with AIDS in the early years of the disease.

But he of course won out.

Bomer tells Out:

“You’re really lucky as an artist if you get a role that changes you as a person. It taught me how to access myself on a completely different level as an artist. And it blew my mind in terms of the level of unconditional love between 'Ned' and 'Felix'—my goodness, if these people could incorporate this into their lives, under their circumstances, why can’t I?”
