Positive Images (Part Three)
So this is what we missed, if we watched Sunday night's Oscar telecast, when Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem appeared on stage together to hand out two awards, and the camera cut to Penelope Cruz in the audience, lingering on her for an unusual length of time.
I have to tell you, seeing two straight, masculine men like Josh and Javier kiss is kind of hot, but it's cool, too. Good for them. Why they kissed makes no difference to me. The fact they did increases their attractiveness in my book. I appreciate the positive image they portrayed of two men engaged in an intimate gesture.
Boo to ABC for preventing this from being shown. What a great opportunity they turned their back on to show two men being affectionate with each other. We see men killing men all the time on TV, including all the blood and gore. I guess that's more acceptable than a simple kiss.
