Wow, so The Normal Heart was humiliatingly snubbed at the Emmys. Granted, I like some others did not feel it was that great of a film (the play was one of the best I'd ever seen), but Matt Bomer's performance was as good as any I've ever seen on TV and Julia Roberts couldn't eke out a win in spite of being a superstar. Major snubs all around.
UPDATE: All those hypocrites standing an applauding now that The Normal Heart has won for best TV movie after losing everything else. I geuss they felt it was Important after all. Interesting! Barbra Streisand is gnashing her teeth now.
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.

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:
