Awards shows have a history of letting marginalized communities down, and also me personally because my taste in movies is notably different than the voting pool of these shows, but this year’s Golden Globes gave us (at least) three queer winners of our collective interest:

So I guess this year my tastes did align more with the Golden Globes voters because I do love Lily Gladstone, did enjoy The Bear, and “What Was I Made For” was at the top of my Spotify wrapped last year. That said, if it were up to me, both Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig would have won for Barbie, too, because that movie is so fun and unique and beautiful and queer and lovely (and pink!) and it didn’t deserve to be overlooked in various categories, given a seemingly made-up category for “Cinematic and Box Office Achievement,” and targeted in one of the host’s many unfunny jokes of the evening. But that’s just my opinion.

Other gay happenings last night include but are not limited to:

Gillian Anderson’s dress had vulvas on it and people have big feelings about it.

Bella Ramsey looked dapper as heck and gave some cute kiddos some advice about how to survive an apocalypse.

And also Jodie Foster was there (she presented and was nominated for her role in Nyad).
