And The Winner Is...Not Here: Oscar's Greatest Proxies Comments (0)

OscarsCan't accept, won't accept, would've loved to accept

You would think anyone nominated for an Oscar would make a point of being at the ceremony...just in case! But quite a few winners have been unable to attend for reasons varying from work to disdain to death.

Check out these looks back at some famous—and some surprising, if, for example, you don't remember Raquel Welch accepting for Goldie Hawn!—proxy acceptances...

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.

Oscar Watch: AMERICAN HUSTLE, SAVING MR. BANKS & NEBRASKA Comments (0)

American-HustleDo the hustle!

I've been remiss in assessing the movies most likely to achieve Oscar gold in early '14, mainly because I've been busy working, doing outside writing and actually watching the things! But a mini-update:

American Hustle by David O. Russell American-hustle-picture-1-07292013-180655

David O. Russell can do no wrong. Well, yes he can—he did the excruciating I Heart Huckabees (2004) and almost gave Lily Tomlin a coronary. Other than that, he's made a series of sensational
films, the most recent of which—Silver Linings Playbook (2012) and The Fighter (2010)—were among the most Oscar-nominated films of their respective years.

With American Hustle, Russell is disco-dancing right back into the heart of awards season by offering a cheeky semi-reality show about a balding con man (Christian Bale), his eager accomplice (Amy Adams), his long-suffering wife (Jennifer Lawrence), a relentless government agent (Bradley Cooper) and the Jersey mayor destined to pay a pretty price for believing the guy (Jeremy Renner). It's all set in the '70s, a darkly funny fairy tale set in the era of Abscam, but much more about one man's relationship with his fellow man...and especially with his fellow woman.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.
