Call Me by Your Name (Video still via Sony Pictures Classics)
USA TODAY: The Los Angeles Film Critics Association has awarded Call Me by Your Name the honor of best film of the year. Its star Timothée Chalamet was named best actor, and its director Luca Guadagnino was named best director — in a tie with Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water. Sally Hawkins earned best actress for The Shape of Water, Laurie Metcalf earned best supporting actress for Lady Bird and Willem Dafoe was named best supporting actor for The Florida Project.

In other gay-related news, BPM (Beats Per Minute) tied for best foreign-language film.
JOY REID: MSNBC host Joy Reid was attacked for long-ago blog posts in which she cattily called out presumed-to-be-closeted Charlie Crist of Florida, referring to him in the feminine. For this, some say she was homophobic. (!) To any gay man who seriously takes offense at that, I say: Get over it, Mary. She was clearly calling out hypocrisy — it's not homophobic unless you also think bikinis are rape.
Nonetheless, she wrote an extensive FB apology (at the link) — and Crist accepted it graciously!
Case closed, purity police. (Worth noting: The liberals still giving her a hard time are Bernie fanatics. Perfect.)

HUFF POST: Australian member of Parliament, Tim Wilson, proposed to his partner, Ryan Bolger, in the House of Representatives Monday while that country's same-sex marriage bill was being debated. Bolger's shy yes is a sight to behold:

NYT: Billy Bush has penned an op-ed for The New York Times in which he flatly states Trump is, in fact, the person on those Access Hollywood tapes. He also writes:
Some of what Natasha Stoynoff, Rachel Crooks, Jessica Leeds and Jill Harth alleged involved forceful kissing. Ms. Harth said he pushed her up against a wall, with his hands all over her, trying to kiss her.
“He was relentless,” she said. “I didn’t know how to handle it.” Her story makes the whole “better use some Tic Tacs” and “just start kissing them” routine real. I believe her.
Kristin Anderson said that Mr. Trump reached under her skirt and “touched her vagina through her underwear” while they were at a New York nightclub in the 1990s. That makes the “grab ’em by the pussy” routine real. I believe her.
