GLAAD's Annual Report On The Big 7 Studios: Movies Got A Little Gayer Comments (0)

Sri coverGLAAD's 2019 Studio Responsibility Index is an informative read, pointing out that 18.2% of movies from the seven major studios had LGBTQ characters, which was up from 2017's abysmal all-time low.

Via press release:

The GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) maps the quantity, quality and diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) characters in films released by the seven major motion picture studios during the 2018 calendar year. GLAAD researched films released by 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios and Warner Bros., as well as films released by four subsidiaries of these major studios. The report is intended to serve as a road map toward increasing fair, accurate and inclusive LGBTQ representation in film.

What is the film about? In a press release, Nabokova, who was a journalist in Russia, says:

In short, my film is about Madonna's fans, their love and devotion for the Queen, and how she inspires her fans all over the world, how she makes them stronger. It’s also about challenges that we face every single day. My film is about real life. 

There are several stories in my film, that can inspire and can be relatable to many people, whether they're Madonna fans or not.

Nominees For 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Include LOVE, SIMON; POSE; THE FAVOURITE Comments (0)

Love_simon_kissSimply the best (Image via Temple Hill Ent.)

The nominees for the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards are here, and — as promised — the LGBTQ advocacy group has ignored Bohemian Rhapsody, the most successful drama of all time at the box office, because its director, Bryan Singer, stands accused of serial sexual abuse and because Singer called the accusations “homophobic.”

Here's Why Bryan Singer Isn't Fired from Red Sonja

This may be the only award Blockers has been nominated for. Also, was the stereotypical gay character in Crazy Rich Asians really so special it made the film worthy of a nomination for Outstanding Film - Wide Release? Where is A Star is Born? I would've thought the queens in the first (and good) half of the movie would've warranted a nom, plus GLAAD would want to try to get Gaga to show up. Baffling!

I would assume with Bohemian Rhapsody outta the way, that clears the path for Love, Simon.

The nominees for Outstanding Film - Limited Release are much, much more, well, outstanding, including some of the best of the year: POSE_103_001210rThe Favourite, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, We the Animals and more.

Look for Pose to take an award.

Also worth noting: INTO, which has been canned by Grindr after lasting a whole 18 months, received a post-mortem award for journalism.

Herewith, the full list:
