I didn’t watch it but you might want to.
Here’s the unofficial GOP response:
I just discovered this young man’s heartfelt story growing up under the spotlight and will post a link to it later, or as soon as someone guesses who his famous parents are. Here’s a hint: He has his mother’s eyes (well first thing I noticed).
Have fun, and what else ya’got? Bring it !
Advocates praised Jodie Foster’s coming out on the televised stage of the Golden Globe Awards last night, but some said she had done little over the years to set an example for others who are LGBT and struggling.
“It was cryptic and defensive and we started thinking it was a joke,” said Diane Anderson-Minshall, executive editor of The Advocate. “She sounded a little passive-aggressive to a lot of LBGT activists. This woman who obviously has been afraid to come out in the public sphere has been out in her private life for decades.”
“By our stand, you are not out until you are publicly out,” she said. “Even though she danced around being a lesbian, at least it’s finally done.”
Some said her long-awaited coming out may have underscored the generation gap in the LGBT world.
Foster, who just turned 50, touched on her career, family and her sexuality while accepting the Cecille B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.
“I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never been able to air in public that I’m a little nervous about,” she said. “But maybe not as nervous as my publicist…”
“So I’m just going to put it out there, loud and proud. I’m going to need your support on this,” she said to rapt room, cameras showing some stars like Anne Hathaway weeping.
But some say her coming out was not so overt, that the actress’s six and a half-minute speech was cryptic and meandering. They say it would have been more powerful had she been straight forward.
Can we please have a moratorium on this stuff? I do not care which way your door swings, or if it swings at all. Gay, straight, both or neither; it’s none of my business so keep it to yourself.
I’m not talking about coming out to family and friends. That can be traumatic. But you don’t need to tell the whole world. And it’s not an act of bravery if you are an never-married 50 year old Hollywood A-lister who has openly but unofficially been out for a couple decades now.
When I say I do not care, I mean exactly that. I really don’t care what anybody’s sexual orientation is, just like I don’t care whether you are left-handed or you have freckles.
In Jodie Foster’s case all I care about it that she makes good movies. I do not care about her personal life, her religious beliefs or her political opinions.
Now if we’re having a discussion and your sexual orientation happens to be relevant to the discussion, feel free to throw it out there. Or not. But either way it’s not a big deal.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a short Palin skit tonight as they talked about the Golden Globe nominations for “Game Change.” Fey said, “I bet if the Governor were here she would say ‘You betcha!’”
Is there anything sadder than two aging hipsters trying desperately to cling to relevancy?
But wait! There’s more:
If there was a major award to be won for her role as Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change” — about Palin’s role in the 2008 presidential election — Julianne Moore has now officially won them all.
Moore won the Best Actress Golden Globe for Best Performance in a Miniseries or Television Film Sunday night, adding to a round-up of statues that includes the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie Emmy, and Best Movie/Miniseries Actress honors at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, as well as a Best Miniseries or Television Film Golden Globe and Outstanding Miniseries or Movie Emmy for the film.
“This was one of my favorite jobs ever,” Moore said in her acceptance speech. “And I’d like to give a shout out to two people who I think made a significant difference in the 2008 election, Tina Fey and Katie Couric.”
In fact, “Game Change” — which debuted on HBO on March 10, 2012 — has been one of the biggest awards show success stories of the last year, winning a total of five Emmys and three Golden Globes for a movie that was based on a book of the same name by political journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.
Funny, but I don’t see a People’s Choice Award on that list. As a matter of fact I don’t recall seeing the DVD for sale or rent anywhere. That’s probably because it didn’t do well in the Neilsen ratings. In other words, unlike Sarah Palin’s Alaska on NatGeo the movie was a commercial flop.
Sarah Palin ran for vice president in 2008. In 2009 she resigned. It’s now 2013.
Some people need to get a grip and get over themselves. Hollywood and the Lamestream Media are seriously out of touch with the rest of us.
