LGBT films and LGBT roles were nominated. Thus let us discover which are the winners? Let us be honest, the results of this year are not extraordinary.

Jared Leto won an award for his role of transsexual in “Dallas Buyers Club”.

In the category Best Television Series – Drama, the LGBT community was represented by 4 nominees out of 5. Guess what? It is the fifth, the non-LGBT, which won.

We will comfort ourselves with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” who won the award of the Best Televison Series, Comedy or Musical.

"Behind the Candelabra" also won the award of the Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television and Michael Douglas, who plays one of the main roles in the film with Matt Damon, won the award of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Unfortunately, we will not remember many victories but rather the homophobe and transphobe speeches of the actors Jared Leto and Michael Douglas.
Leto joked about his role but it was absolutely not funny. He played a woman transgender with AIDS and the only thing which he found to say was:

"I did not ever use any prosthetics in this film. That tiny little Brazilian bubble butt was all mine."

"It was a very transformative role. I had to do a lot of things to prepare. One of the things I did was wax my entire body, including my eyebrows," Leto said to the audience’s laughter according to SalonSalon.

As for Douglas, that was worse. At least Leto tried to be “funny” but Douglas insulted effeminate homosexuals people using the term “mincing” to describe them.

See you next year for a better ceremony!
