Actress Ellen Page Is 'Pissed' That Queen Elizabeth II Supports Anti-Gay Politician

Ellenqueen

Actress Ellen Page took to her Twitter account to voice her displeasure with the Queen of England who gave a prestigious award to a blatant anti-gay politician reports StyleiteQueen Elizabeth II awarded Maurice Mills, a Democratic Unionist Party councillor of Northern Ireland, with the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for his services to local government. Mills is known for blaming natural disasters, like Hurricane Katrina, on gays and saying AIDS is a consequence of the practice of sodomy.

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 4.40.03 PMPage is having none of it, saying "F*** that," citing a Vice News story about the Queen and Mills in her tweet. There's a petition to get Mills' award retracted; it currently has 369 signatures. A Belfast Telegraph article disagrees saying Mills deserves the honor. The move is disappointing as the Queen expressed support toward the gay community in the past, to say nothing of her lashing out at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for "lacking the guts," to legalize gay marriage, going so far as to say "Just sign the damn bill, Chris." It's unclear if the Queen truly supports Mills' views or was simply being "diplomatic," awarding Mills for his work in government and not his archaic views on the gay community.

'Pride' Wins Best Film at British Independent Film Awards

Pride

Pride, the true story of lesbian and gay activists who supported workers during the 1984 National Union of Minerworkers (NUM) strike, has been named best film at the British Independent Film Awards, BBC reports:

Accepting the top award of the night, Pride director Matthew Warchus said: "We're getting reports from up and down the country of audiences standing up and applauding. That doesn't really happen in British cinemas.

"It's just extraordinary. It's a real tribute to the source material."

Writer Stephen Beresford added that the film had one "simple, compelling message: unite".

"When I was first told the story I was blown away by it - people ask 'is that really true?'

"It took 20 years to convince anyone that a film about vegan lesbian activists was a sure-fire hit."

Pride stars Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton also took home awards, winning best supporting actor and best supporting actress respectively.
