    YES. My favorite duo is back! Loved it.
    I can’t comment on the current movies and be knowledgeable since sadly I haven’t seen them.
    BUT Musto was crazy about saying he liked Crash and didn’t mind Brokeback Mountain losing to it…. especially since the rest of the competition was great. Munich, Capote and Good Night and, Good Luck – Crash was a piece of garbage that should be erased from movie history!

    As for anti-gay – I ADORE musicals but not all of them are great. La La Land looks lovely and I want to see it but I get the *feeling* it wouldn’t be on the top of my list of great musicals either.
    Jackie *looks* like it will be exactly like a film I’ll love. And I think it more of a movie us gays will gravitate to the most this year.

    Never underestimate a war film with the academy – I’m thinking Hacksaw Ridge will do really well – including Gibson.
    Lastly Fences – I only know basics about it. Im really in it for Viola, truth be told. Denzel’s character – oy – seems being nasty and mean for 2 hours – That really does not appeal to me. Interesting idea what Anne said about it possibly getting support for being an anti Trump sort of thing.

    LOL. So you’re joking he might be anti-gay because he is not predicting LA LA LAND, not because he’s not predicting Moonlight? Okay.

    I still can’t stand the anti gay argument people always bring up with Brokeback. I’m gay and I would have voted for Crash hands down!

    I also hate the “oscar so white” argument! Maybe people actually vote on what they think the best performance and/or movie are! There will most definitely be a lot of black representation in best picture and acting this year. Not bc of increased diversity within the voting members but bc of quality films. HIDDEN FIGURES, MOONLIGHT, LOVING, FENCES. If the quality is there people will vote for black stories and actors.
    The oscars so white wasn’t because of racist voting, it was bc of lack of quality product!

    The anti-gay argument isn’t because people think it’s inherently homophobic not to vote for Brokeback, it’s because we have at least anecdotal evidence that certain older male voters were resistant to the film entirely because of its gay theme. Also it’s a complete anomaly for a film to sweep the way Brokeback did – PGA, DGA, Globe, BAFTA, BFCA – and lose Best Picture at the Oscars. Statistically, something was very off.

    Yea it seemed pretty facetious to me – I mean a romantic song and dance, reach for your dreams musical is something us gays (stereotypical but mostly true!!) love – even if its over a story about a gay man and his life, especially if its not about a the normative gay upperclass white male.

    As for Brokeback v Crash..
    As with a certain American election tragedy that just happened – there were a number of factors that resulted in the way it resulted
    *the gay issue is a thing
    *campaign is a thing
    *the fact BM did won almost everything but lost the biggest prize is a flag
    *admission of some they wouldn’t watch it coz the the gay factor
    *make up of the academy is a thing. Crash most definitely more a movie they’d vote for any day
    and there may be others but too early for me to think more into it lol
    ps – I will say I think homophobic *may* be too strong a word. I think some people are just uncomfortable. They might believe gays should have quality but they don’t want to see it.

    anyway! happy holidays ya’ll!
