But yes, gentlemen and ladygays, another Gay Super Bowl is over. And wow, how very gay it was! Despite Slumdog Millionaire predictably edging out Benjamin Button and Milk for the big win, the Academy apologized for Brokeback and Prop 8 by awarding Sean Penn his second Oscar and Lance Black his first. We did enjoy Penn calling the Academy a bunch of “Commie, homo-loving sons-a-guns.” Way to boost ratings in the heartland!
So why not, ABC might have figured when hiring Hugh Jackman to host and Dreamgirls director Bill Condon as the man behind the scenes, just go for the gusto and gay the thing up. Support and satisfy the base and let the rest fall away like so much else in these belt-tightening times. The Oscars will be the Tonys, only slightly relevant! So that might be part of the reason why Queen Latifah did her best Big, Black Broadway Lady and Hugh got some help from Beyoncé and the fagtastic Zac Efron to declare the musical alive and kicking, while the Swarovski bejeweled curtain thing hovered overhead like a murder of gay angels.
