Oscar favorites for 2007

Yes, this years Oscar nominations are now in.

But did you know that the frontrunners for 2007 are being filmed right now? A partial list:

* It's a Wunnnnderful Life (remake of the James Stewart classic starring Nathan Lane)
* Homo On the Range (sequel to Ang Lee's brilliant, fearless tour-de-force)
* Oh Gawd, Do I Ever Hate America's Guts Out (Michael Moore documentary)
* Born Female But Wanna Be a Future Ex-Male, I Think (tender story of a genetic female who wants something more from life than being a transgendered ex-male lesbian trapped in a transvestite's body, Hilary Swank to direct)
* Gay Paris (need I say more?)
* Citizen Brad (remake of the Orson Welles classic, starring RuPaul.)
* James Bondage (S&M-friendly take on 007)
* The Hunk: A Different Kind of Superhero (sequel to Homo On the Range)

You know -- films that reflect the interests of all American filmgoers, from the dens of Manhattan to the church steps of Montana.

Ha! How about a gay gangster movie? I think that is story that has been neglected for too long. All that macho male posturing that is really a cover for homophobia, don’t you know?

What about "La Cage Au Scarface" or the obvious "Gayfather".

See now? How can you say that upstaging the blogger is right?

I only had a few minutes to make my list -- but I like the gay gansgter idea. Or how about:

"Gay Fellas."
"Gaysino."
"Once Upon a Time In San Francisco."
"Angels With Dirty Hankies."
"The Good, the Bad, and the Fabulous."


Readers are invited to chime in with their movie suggestions.

Just watched "Stagecoach." Great 1939 flick, complex and entertaining.

John Wayne looks really young in that one.
Another great John Ford western is "My Darling Clementine." One of the few with out John Wayne but it's great anyway.

BTW. You must be working from the home office these days. It's always fun doing confrence calls in the PJs.

Don't laugh. When it's getting harder and harder to tell the difference between CNN and South Park, someone might actually MAKE these movies. Seriously.

Yes, flannel is best. With hot tea close at hand.

Anon: You are correct.

1. Movies about superheros don't need to be remade to be more gay. Period.

2. Would a remake of The African Queen need a title change?

3. Between you and me, my bet is on remakes of classic disney movies such as; Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Mulan (for the girls who find gender roles hard to identify with), and so forth. Don't they already have a movie called Home on the Range?

Oh OUCH. Did I go to far? Mark my words... I'm not kidding. And I know this topic is important to you and we don't see eye to eye on it and everything said has been in jest thus far... but I really do see it coming.

And, I'm willing to admit I kind of enjoy saying "I told ya so."
