And this matters HOW ?

Yes, you will "catch gay" Not the rest of us, just you. You will also "catch gay" if you go see Chicago, but you'll probably just get a case of the bisexuals if you rent it when its out on video. You can also "get the fever" if you eat Pringles.

Brodie: well, maybe it matters to Andrew Sullivan, who is "openly gay" himself. Anyway...

what can we catch if we post in this thread? Homophobic 5th Grade style link syndrome?

and regarding the post you link to, yeah, it is great that people in hollywood are being able to receive recognition while being openly gay. And that will be important until it isn't shocking to some people.

Gay people? In show business? Oh heavens to betsy. Next thing you know the Irish will want to become cops.

To quote Xander from Buffy..

"Ok Willow, gay me up! Let's gay!"

Come to think of it, the show itself is sort of steeped in gayness, but fun none the less.

I believe you meant to ask "Can I catch the Gay if I watch the Oscars?"

The 'the' is very important.

Bahh. Every large production has at least one gay person in it. So does most every company in the world, politics, art, science, and education.

It's sort of a dumb claim. In Australian newspapers they are saying that Australians are dominating this year's Oscars. I'm sure there are people compiling lists of how many Jews have been nominated (as both a good and a bad thing).
Probably the most statistically valid comment to make would be that white folk are dominating this year's Oscars.
I think a more shocking claim would be about how members of a certain race has been terribly neglected...and you know who I'm talking about.
That's right. Hobbits.

Heck, even Gandalf is gay. Where will it end?

The The is also a band who sang the very important possibly gay anthem Love Is Stronger Than Death!

So I guess there must be a lot of Jewish gay Australians in Hollywood. I guess that's better than being overrun by displaced Canadians.

Well, its Valentines Day tomorrow and I don't have a date, so I definitely want to catch at least one gay.

No, but watch this.

Pardon my lack of articulation, but who gives a flying fuck!?

Wow, a bunch of gays happen to be nominated for film awards, this is such an event. I had no idea gay people could hold award-worthy jobs in the movie industry! Well, I've learned something, my day is complete.

Or not.

Not that it really matters, since I agree with the general 'who cares' tone of the comments here, but isn't Meryl Streep nominated for "Adaptation," wherein she portrays a decidedly ungay character? Not that there's anything wrong with that (sorry, had to say it.)

Andrew Sullivan is GAY? Well, now I just don't know what to think...

Next year: Oscar goes bareback.

Nathan Lane on whether or not he was gay:

"I'm forty, unmarried and in musical theater, you do the math."

Topic? Since Sullivan is gay, if he were to watch the Oscars and catch teh ghey, would they cancel each other out and make him straight?

And I hear the whole thing is run by "The Jews"

Next year: Oscar goes bareback.

Happened already. Pulp Fiction writer Roger Avary (who shared the Best Original Screenplay award with Tarantino) has this great anecdote about a woman he met at a Oscar party -- she asked him to use his Oscar on her as, er, a dildo
