Oscar Producer Says Avoiding Javier/Josh Kiss Was An Honest Mistake!

oscar-producer-says-missing-javier-bardem-josh-brolin-kiss-was-an-honest-mistake

Damage control or honest mistake?

We're not sure we can tell!

After ABC's telecast of Sunday's Academy Awards cut away from presenters Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin sharing an impromptu on-stage kiss and dance number, the network has received criticism once again claiming that they did this deliberately to avoid airing a same-sex lip lock!

However, Award producer Bruce Cohen has released the following statement:

“It [the dance and the kiss] was unscripted, and the plan in the truck was always to cut to Penelope in the audience applauding Josh’s and Javier’s introduction, so that is what happened, just as they were starting to dance. Josh and Javier’s moment (I saw them start to dance, but, to be honest, I have no idea if they kissed — that’s the first I’ve heard of that) would have made a great TV moment, but since no one knew it was coming, we cut to the gorgeous Mz. Cruz as planned. By the time, we cut back from her close-up, Josh and Javier were walking to the podium.”

Hmm! We understand that is must be incredibly difficult as a producer to keep an eye on EVERYTHING that's happening, while simultaneously managing what cameras are where, but that's sort of a BIG moment to miss!

Feels a little like an excuse to us, but honestly, who knows?

Just make sure it doesn't happen again, guys!

What do U think was in play here?? Homophobia or an honest mistake??

North Korea Airs Bend It Like Beckham On TV! First Western-Made Film To Do So!

north-korea-allows-western-made-bend-it-like-beckham-to-air-on-tv

So crazy!

North Koreans were allowed to watch a western-made film for the first time on TV this past week when the British Embassy made arrangements for the British soccer film Bend It Like Beckham, co-starring Keira Knightley, to be broadcast!

Normally, western films are considered a big no-no in the country, but given the public's love for the sport, an exception was made. However, much of the film's content - including interracial relationships, homosexuality, and religion - was cut out of their edit, leaving the film's new running length to be about an hour.

We find it so unfortunate that so many places enforce censorship to that degree, but we suppose this is a step in the direction of progress!

Hopefully it will continue to come!

Did GLAAD Let The Insensitive Gay Line In The Dilemma Preview Slide?

It should have never escalated this far, and we think both parties are responsible!

A preview for the film The Dilemma has become thrown into the middle of some serious controversy for a line in which Vince Vaughn's character uses the word 'gay' in a derogatory fashion, and now, not only the studio behind the flick, Universal, is being criticized!

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation issued an official complaint yesterday, but apparently, they knew about the film and had concerns about the line in question, but kept quiet about it until Anderson Cooper spoke out first!

WTF?

GLAAD's director of public relations, Richard Ferraro, justifies the organization's delay responding with the statement, "Before we issue a call to action, we always give the entertainment outlets the chance to rectify what they are doing."

But many are concerned now that this incident, thrown in with the huge mess involving Adam Lambert and ABC from last year, just further proves that GLAAD is focusing too much attention on working with the aforementioned companies, instead of keeping tabs on the content that they produce!

Author/Radio Host Michelangelo Signorile explains:

"It just seems they are always giving the benefit of the doubt to the studios and the networks. Because they think they can get more done working on the inside and because they also give awards to the same entities and have benefits at which they all have to buy tables. There's an appearance of conflict of interest, which is troubling."

Of course, now GLAAD is back-peddling and maintaining that the studio had put the preview on-line before they could express their concerns, while Universal claims that the organization never expressed any concern over the trailer. GLAAD is now demanding that the original trailer, which is still being shown in theaters, to be pulled, and that the line get cut from the film.

What a mess! Especially now with all of this he-said, she-said nonsense!

However, we are disappointed with the way that GLAAD unfortunately handled this situation, and we sincerely hope that they can find a better way to maintain relationships with these media companies, without compromising the integrity of the cause!

Now is NOT the time to be letting these things slide!
