Stonewall Has Been Nominated For A Film Award…Really

Stonewall Has Been Nominated For A Film Award…Really

 

The Gay and Lesbian Film Critics have just released their nominations for the Dorian Awards, and everyone’s favorite flick Stonewall got a surprise nomination!

Stonewall joins The Boy Next Door, Magic Mike XXL, Fifty Shades of Grey, and Jupiter Ascending as a nominee for “Campy Flick of the Year.”

Hey, a nomination is a nomination…right?

As you may remember, Stonewall attracted instant ire the second the trailer was released. People accused it of “whitewashing” LGBTQ history, the stars were forced to defend it, and when it finally did come out, it was savaged by critics. Director Roland Emmerich promised Queerty that people “wouldn’t hate it once they saw it,” and he was right…they despised it.

Stonewall died a quick death at the box office and currently sits at a dismal 9% at Rotten Tomatoes.

As far as the quality gay cinema that got real nods from the group, period lesbian drama Carol got multiple nominations (though we found it a bit dry) and transgender comedy Tangerine got nods for LGBTQ Film of the Year, Best Director for Sean Baker, and standouts Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez were both nominated for the “We’re Wilde About You!” Rising Star Award.

The winners are announced on January 19th, and will be feted in L.A. in early March.

As for Stonewall? Well let’s just say it’s one step closer to becoming the camp classic it was destined to be.

We hope Emmerich will show up to accept in person if the flick wins. That spectacle will undoubtedly be more entertaining than the movie.

Only One Candidate Looked Presidential At The Debate. It Wasn’t The Orange One.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
