"Jim Carrey goes gay for a shot at the Oscar."

Jim Carrey stars in the new film “I Love You Philip Morris.” The film has had its release date pushed back several times and at this point won’t be hitting theaters until at least October, 2010, if ever. Why you ask? Apparently there is an extremely graphic man on man sex scene. I haven’t seen the scene so I can’t comment on how graphic the scene is, but if the release is truly going to be affected by the graphic sex scene I hope to God that it has nothing to do with the fact that it is a same sex scene.

Aren’t we passed this stuff by now? I mean its 2010? I just started watching the television show “True Blood,” the vampires in that show (at least in the first few episodes I’ve seen) are clearly meant to symbolize homosexuals, much like the “X-Men” are clearly meant to symbolize homosexuals (that’s right I said it, Wolverine is gay). In both “X-Men” and “True Blood” the mutants and vampires are treated as outcasts. What do we have against gay people? I just don’t get it. I remember ten or fifteen years ago there was a report that the all-star catcher Mike Piazza was gay and he had to have a press conference to make sure everyone knew he wasn’t. Even the best show of all time “Seinfeld” had the famous line “not that there’s anything wrong with it,” implying that they don’t have a problem with gay people, but that they’re certainly not gay.

When I think back to the scientology episode on “South Park,” where the kids kept telling Tom Cruise to come out of the closet, I can’t help but think that if I were Tom Cruise I would have called Matt and Trey up and been like, ‘guys you should have called me, I could have done the voice of myself, it would have been great.’ I’ve never heard Tom Cruise come out (hee, hee) and comment on that episode, but rumor had it that he was pretty peeved about them calling him gay. If I ever accidentally got famous and a rumor started that said I was gay, I wouldn’t even address it, who cares? I don’t care if you think I’m gay, straight or both, because it’s all irrelevant.

What was I talking about again? I got a little side tracked, oh yeah, Jim Carrey and his new movie. What I find silly about Hollywood is that if you attempt to play someone with a handicap or someone who’s gay you have a better shot at winning an Academy Award. Let me ask you this, if a gay person played someone straight in a movie, would they be considered? I love movies and I love watching the Academy Awards, but this trend is just really annoying to me. We’re better than this; it’s almost more belittling to homosexual and handicap culture. Check out the movie “Tropic Thunder” if you haven’t seen it. That movie addresses what annoys me about Hollywood and actors lame attempts at trying to win an Academy Award. I love it, especially Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise.
