    I thought Hillary Swank in "Boys Don't Cry" years back was excellent.
    Thoughts? Or haven't you seen it yet?

    Apparently Ellen was passing a hat that night for donations and he got $1000 when he appeared on her show in the next day or two.

I think the praise for it comes mostly from a mindset that wants to reward straight dudes for the "courage" to play trans. I think it's the same mindset that rewarded Heath Ledger for his thoroughly unremarkable performance in Brokeback Mountain. I'm curious what you'll think of the performance when you see it.
    I didn't hear his Golden Globe speech, so maybe I should look it up, but I wouldn't go as far to say the "LGBT community" is having an issue -- I only seem to have heard flak from the Transsexual segment of the "T" subgroup of LGBT. In fact, at my LGBT advisory group meeting on Wednesday, where I'm the only trans person of any flavor, no one else there understood why everyone was getting so upset.

    EDIT:

    Okay, here's one link I found.

    Looks like Leto and McConaughey took some flak for not mentioning AIDS in their speeches.

    Here's Leto's actual speech.


    What do you guys think of it / what's your emotional response just as speeches go? Do you think he is sincere? how's it come across?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I wondered if you'd posted something but there were a lot of pages to go through and I didn't have time to go through them all.

    Well, I get that... but... it was the very last post in the thread and actually appeared right before you asking me if I had posted.
