GLAAD to be here


A panoply of famous Hollywood gays and FOTG (Friends of The Gays) were out in force this weekend for the GLAAD Media Awards, what with Kathy Griffin taking home the best reality show trophy, Janet Jackson getting the Vanguard Award and Lloyd from "Entourage" in the house.

Even Garry Marshall, multi-Emmy-nominee, writer/producer/actor, got into the spirit of the evening (see photo of him putting his straight man hands all over actor Leslie Jordan) at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

"Brothers & Sisters," which features the yin and yang of a proudly out gay sibling and an uncle who's in decades-long denial, won for best drama, and "Ugly Betty," with its Rebecca Romijn used-to-be-a-dude storyline plus the young Justin (Betty's nephew) as a tap dancing lover of all things musical and fashion forward, was named best comedy.

More here on GLAAD's continued trek across America (New York and South Florida awards have already been doled out. Next up: San Fran).

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
