Damien is correct Oscar Guy. Both Obama and Hillary are "against gay marriage" (meaning, they have to say this because a lot of Americans are against gay marriage) but they're both in favor of civil unions. Obama though has been more vocal in denouncing homophobia and has come out AGAINST the homop...

It's a puzzle to me why ANY gay person (non self-loathing anyway) would support the Clintons given that Bill approved "Don't Ask Don't Tell", signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law, and said in 2004 that John Kerry should come out strongly against gay marriage (before and after he lost). I gue...

This totally makes up for her crying about that dog. Good for her. Seriously though, this story is horrific and sad, and her point is a good one -- using marginalized people for punch lines is just the beginning of the hate cycle. I'm glad she made that smooth transition into voting for a candidate...

My god, the woman is pathetic. She came across as whiny, petulant, straining to be funny -- and from the looks of it, the audience was not won over. She needed to score big last night and she just made it even easier for Obama instead. Hillary please. Save yourself some dignity. Call it quits now, ...

(like all rituals, empty and meaningless), Like the entire Oscarcast itself? I loved her speech too, and her genuine reaction. Best moment of the night (I re-checked it on youtube and you're right, she didn't mention Piaf). I hope her next film role involves various states of undress. Edited By Aka...
