And The Golden Globe Nominees Are

First of all, are you fricking kidding me with the poster?!? Second, when is a gay man going to win an Oscar for playing a gay character. Don’t the straights play straights 99% of the time, and win for “playing straight?”

“Brokeback Mountain,” a gay romance between two cowboys, topped the Golden Globes on Tuesday with nominations in seven categories, including best film drama, in a year dominated by independent movies.

Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which give out the Golden Globes, shunned major Hollywood studio movies in its top category, best film drama, including Steven Spielberg’s “Munich” and Peter Jackson’s “King Kong.”

Joining “Brokeback” on the list for best film drama were “Good Night, and Good Luck,” a stylish black-and-white movie directed by George Clooney, Woody Allen’s story about British social climbers “Match Point,” and two low-budget thrillers, “A History of Violence” and “The Constant Gardener.”

The full Golden Globe list of nominees after the jump.
