Straights Are Upset By All the Gay Golden Globe Awards


LOS ANGELES — Gay, lesbian and transgender roles and gay, lesbian and transgender actors, writers and directors swept the Golden Globe awards this week.

Brokeback Mountain won the Best Homosexual Lovemaking award, while Felicity Huffman won the Best Transgender award for her role in Transamerica, in which she plays a man preparing for sex-change surgery. Philip Seymour Hoffman was honored as Best Dramatic Actor for his role as gay author Truman Capote in Capote.

"It is good to see that alternative lifestyles have become mainstream and that cinemas across the country are showing graphic scenes of cowboys making love," said Ang Lee, the Brokeback director. "American family values are weird, gay and kinky."

Straight actors, writers and directors protested the outcome of the awards and said they would organize to present their own awards next year.

Liberal political films also scored well at the Globes, particularly in the categories reserved for Liberal Political Films.

"Syriana and Good Night, and Good Luck are squarely aimed at the Bush administration," said director and actor, George Clooney. "If you didn't get that, you should see these movies again."

"I know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as people our job is to become who we really are," said Felicity Huffman, "and so I would like to salute the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are."

Many in the audience thought this was a strange speech from someone they suspect has not had the courage to come out of the closet.
