IS IT WRONG THAT I’M ALSO ROOTING FOR IZZY?
This year’s nominees for the Golden Globes have been announced, and Sarah Paulson is nominated for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television" for her role on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Which gives me an excuse to post this lovely large photo of her here:
She’s up against some pretty stiff competition, though: Emily Blunt (Gideon’s Daughter), Toni Collette (Tsunami: The Aftermath), Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds) and
Izzy Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy). And frankly, there are more critics than fans of Studio 60, so I’m guessing her chances of winning at the ceremony on January 15th aren’t great. But it’ll be fun to see Cherry Jones as Sarah‘s plus-one at an awards show, for a change.
IT WAS THE LESBIAN, IN THE HOTEL ROOM, WITH THE CANDLESTICK
In last Friday’s episode of Law and Order ("Corner Office"), two lesbians killed a straight man who was threatening to out one of them:
After corporate attorney Charles Dillon is discovered dead in a hotel room, Green and Cassady investigate and learn that the company he was working for is in the process of being indicted. Their investigation leads them to a high-priced callgirl, Julia Veloso, who turns out to have been romantically involved with the company’s C.E.O., Samantha Weaver.
I know it looks like another negative portrayal of lesbians on TV, but there is at least one lesbian cop and lawyer among the many regular or recurring characters on the three Law and Order series, to balance out the twice-a-year episodes about lesbian killers, criminals, and sluts. Oh wait, no there isn’t. Withdrawn.
