By now, we’ve all heard about the going-ons at the 75th Golden Globes earlier this week. It was a night of protests, both silent and very, very vocal. It was a platform for women to call out the men of Hollywood… and yes, in typical award show fashion, there was plenty of bad humor.
But I want to take a moment to talk not about the celebrities wearing black, but instead about a gorgeous queer book that became a gorgeous queer movie… a movie that was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama.
That book (and movie) is, of course, Call Me By Your Name, written by André Aciman and adapted to screen by James Ivory and Luca Guadagnino.
Rita wrote a glowing review of the book this past summer, where she called it, “heartbreaking” and “beautifully written”. You can check out her full review of the book here.
But I want to take a minute to talk about this movie, and how amazing it is to see this queer story nominated for one of the biggest awards in Hollywood.
