I think the Academy proved on Monday night that Hollywood, which pats it’s back on it’s tolerance and inclusiveness, showed it’s true colors and what a shame. Matt Bomer’s performance was unmatched. Look at the gifs of the 4 actors present as Matt’s name was not called out. His fellow nominees thought he was the Emmy winner. No one can take that good performance from him. I think all high school and college educators should show this movie and have a discussion on safe sex and loving one anothers’ differences. We aren’t clones or Stepford wives-we are unique and different and we have the right to love who we are attracted to-we are on this planet for a blink of an eye-we need to start caring for each other. Matt and Simon-keep up the great work on education and tolerance.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the biggest snub of the night was the category Best Supporting Actor in a miniseries/TV-movie. That award belonged to Matt Bomer. Fair enough, Martin Freeman is a great actor, but his performance in this Sherlock (which is not even a movie) was nowhere close to what Matt pulled out in The Normal Heart.

And I would’ve loved to see Larry Kramer winning for best writing (and his writing WAS good), but honestly I don’t know if he was the best in that category.

Biggest snub of the entire night was Matt Bomer not winning for Best Supporting Actor. He stood out in an actor’s showcase of a film with a performance that went way beyond the much talked about weight loss. It was shocking, as basically every critic and editor, pretty much anyone who put out Emmy predictions had him not just as the winner, but a lock to win. I think Sherlock is excellent television and Martin Freeman is terrific, but this year, in this particular race? No way.

How sad that Larry Kramer did not win. Also Matt Bomer should have gotten the Emmy, he was fantastic.
