  3. Loved the LA Gay Men's Chorus singing the We Saw Your Boobs number. Dame Shirley rocked!

  4. A bunch of homosexuals enabling a homophobic industry. How encouraging...not.

  9. Certainly one of the best.

    In what way are these the "homophobic Oscars"?

  10. In what way are these the homophobic Oscars? How about the host takes a moment immediately after the gay men's chorus performs to make sure we understand that he's *not* a member of the chorus and then reacts with horror when Captain Kirk, from the future, tells him that he will be a member by 2015? He says in front of 20 or 30 (or whatever) gay men who have just done their best to provide entertainment that he is *not* one of them. Are you so accustomed to being mocked and ridiculed that you don't perceive it? This finally has to stop.

  11. The humor was great! Loved it!

  12. Jeez, some of you guys need to take that pole out of your ass and stop being so God damn sensitive. Comedians make fun of everyone, so why are gays off limits? Y'all got to learn how to take a joke, and stop being so damn sensitive.

  14. I hear ya Emmy

  15. God awful. It was embarrassing. Not Funny or cutting edge. Just stupid and poorly timed. Nothing could be more deadly to comedy.

  16. I'm so glad I'm not one of you guys! ... is not funny.

  17. Shirley Bassey and Barbara Streisand each singing one of their biggest hits, live, on TV, for free. How often does that happen?

    How did they manage to get them to perform for us?

  18. Bab's nailed it!

  19. I wonder if Andy Towle is going to applaud the homophobic humor at the Oscars seeing that most of those participating in it are Democrats. If these homophobic jokes were at a Republican Party gathering, I have no doubt that Andy would be thundering on this site about how anti-gay they all were.

  20. The comments are out of hand. The audience here is global and the gay mens' chorus was not the butt of some minstrel show joke, they were among the select few invited to perform on that global stage.

  21. I think Seth is just wonderful, adorable.... so smart and sweet and mischevious, just perfect.... and I sure hope in 2015 he comes out....

  22. The Frat Boy Oscars: Gay panic, Misogyny, Racism and Xenophobia.

    The only consolation will be watching his career run in the In Memoriam section at next years Oscars.

  23. Simply wonderful!

  24. Oh Bruce, go sneak into CPAC and find your love and acceptance.

  25. There are people in the world who seriously want to do gay people harm. We didn't see any one of them at the Oscars tonight. Pick your battles, but at least pick one that would actually make a damn bit a difference in a gay person's life.
