How gay will this year’s Golden Globes be?



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.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala - Outside Arrivals

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.

The Good Wife and Masters of Sex are great shows with queer female characters, but Breaking Bad is up for the last time, threatening to come out on top.

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.

Best Motion Picture, Drama

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.)

It’s always fun to note that so many of the women nominees have played a lesbian or bisexual woman in the past: Janet McTeer, Kate Winslet, Amy Adams, Meryl Streep, Hayden Panettierre.

Lastly, the lesbian collective agrees that anything with Jennifer Lawrence in attendance is worth watching.
