No FAGs At SAGs
by Lee

The FAGs were out in full FAG force tonight for the Film Actor’s Guild Awards.

Reese Witherspoon as singer June Carter in “Walk the Line” and Philip Seymour Hoffman as author Truman Capote in “Capote” won lead-acting awards Sunday from the Screen Actors Guild, while the ensemble drama “Crash” pulled off an upset win over “Brokeback Mountain” for the overall cast award.

Rachel Weisz of the murder-thriller “The Constant Gardener” and Paul Giamatti of the boxing drama “Cinderella Man” received supporting-acting honors.

Those of you who subscribe to the idea that Brokeback Mountain is some kind of gay Hollywood conspiracy might want to reconsider that viewpoint.

“Actors have to have each others’ backs. It’s the only way to act well is when you know the other actor has your back, and these actors had my back, and I hope they know I had theirs.”

Clearly, the conspiracy still stands.

We saw “Walk The Line” last night. I tell ya, I grew up on Johnny Cash. The good memories with may dad have Johnny Cash as the background music. Reece Witherspoon was brilliant and deserves an Oscar. She sang a spot-on June Carter-Cash. The best musical performance by an actor since that nutter Busey.

Anyway, I’ll see “Brokeback Mountain” as soon as I can and write a review as promised.

That is contradicted by the phrase “while the ensemble drama ‘Crash’ pulled off an upset win over ‘Brokeback Mountain’...” It was the odds-on favorite, or the other one winning wouldn’t be referred to as an “upset”.

One could argue that just because the agenda of those who make the money decisions - such as it is - is completely separate from the various “Lookatme!” nights Hollywood throws itself on a weekly basis. Actors, too, must go where the work is, and there’s a reason that there are ten liberal actors/singers for every conservative one.

Brokeback Mountain has already been reduced to the butt of jokes (no pun intended) which pretty much removes the shock value of “forbidden manlove”.

With the shock value gone, the ”Lets piss off all those backward conservative homophobes by lauding a “chick flick” featuring gay cowboys” meme has lost its punch.

The film is now being judged on its own merits.

Walk the Line, kicked ass, one really great movie.

Reece Witherspoon, is such a hottie…

Here’s an article from WorldNetDaily (Yes, yes, I know):

‘Brokeback Mountain’:  Rape of the Marlboro Man

I’m just gratuitously throwing “gasoline on the fire"… *grin*

Here’s an article from WorldNetDaily (Yes, yes, I know)

Geez, I hardly even know where to start with this tool, David Kupelian.

Today, the powerful cowboy image is being used to sell us on another self-destructive product: homosexual sex and “gay” marriage.

Ooh, the evil homos! Lock up your children! They’re coming for them with dongs a swingin’! Just like that, it’s e-v-i-l. No supporting evidence, just e-v-i-l!

And shocking revelations that movies contain messages and may leave the viewer with gasp feelings. Those evil filmakers trying to manipulate us. Grab yer Bible folks because that’s what’s gonna save ya from the gay cowboy actors and their puppetmasters.

Good God. It’s like this article should have been posted on the Onion or something. Is WorldNet Daily a gag site?

Nice fire.

Lee -

Have you seen “Brokeback Mountain”?  If so, where is your movie review?  Did I miss it?

Anyway, I’ll see “Brokeback Mountain” as soon as I can and write a review as promised.

We’ll hold you to that, Gripeboy.
