Forbidden gay kiss lost in the Bermuda Triangle of man love at the Oscars!

The kiss you missed.

Did you watch the Oscars? We know, it was lethally dull. But do you remember that exciting part where Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem danced and then kissed? Missed it?

That’s because the show’s producers hit the gay panic button and went to Defcon 4, cutting away to an extended shot of the hetero-approved, object of lust, Penelope Cruz. We can’t pass up noting the irony that Ms. Cruz (once romantically linked to a certain Mr. Cruise) was employed as a quickie beard for the most painfully straight Oscars telecast in years. (And no, we don’t count James Franco’s drag gag as a victory for queer visibility.)

In other gay Oscar news, Best Director winner Tom Hooper said we has surprised to learn that the location used for his Best Picture winning The King’s Speech was previously the site of a gay porn set, but added: “It was the right set for me and it was the right set for them.” During his acceptance speech, Hooper credited the “triangle of man love,” between himself and stars Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush for the film’s success.  No gay panic there!

Let’s hope that someday the Oscars and Hollywood catch up with Hooper and the rest of America on comfort with gay relationships.

    Wow. That’s too bad they cut away. That woulda perked me right up during the rather blah show . I did get all fuzzy inside when a producer (can’t remember which award) thanked his boyfriend. Thank goodness they didn’t cut away from that!
