Last year’s Golden Globes will be hard to beat, with Jodie Foster‘s officially coming out during an award acceptance speech, but with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning for their gigs, this year’s broadcast should be almost as good. And by good, we also hope that means a little bit of gay. (At least. We’d like more, but we don’t want to be greedy.)
Before Sunday night’s show, we’d like to put together the possibilities.
Emma Thompson is up for her turn as bisexual author P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks, but we’re fans of her competition, too. We’ll be all ears to see if Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett chats about her new lesbian role in Carol on the red carpet. (The Patricia Highsmith adaptation started filming in Ohio this month.) Cate takes on her former on-screen obsessor Judi Dench, who is nominated for Philomena.
Jane Lynch leant her voice to Despicable Me 2, which is up against likely winner Frozen.
Blue is the Warmest Color has a good chance at taking home the prize, which would be our first chance to see it win on a U.S. televised stage. Definitely hoping to see this happen.
Who will you be rooting for when it’s Tatiana Maslany vs. Taylor Schilling? Their competition is stiff, too (Kerry Washington! Robin Wright! Julianna Margulies!) but they are our faves for playing fabulous gayish chicks on the small screen.
Sarah Paulson could join her cast and crew if 12 Years a Slave is called out for number one.
Best TV Movie or Mini-Series
…or we could see Sarah P take the stage for an American Horror Story: Coven clinch. (Coven has out writer Jessica Sharzer, too.)
And you know what happens whenever Meryl and Sandra Bullock are together at an awards show…
Lastly, the lesbian collective agrees that anything with Jennifer Lawrence in attendance is worth watching.
