Oscars 2016: Ian McKellen asks why no gay man has ever won Best Actor

26 January 2016 2:38 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The current diversity debate surrounding the 2016 Academy Awards has squarely settled on the issue of race, thanks to conversations sparked by the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. Yet, Sir Ian McKellen offered a keen reminder that diversity issues within the awards race are widespread. "No openly gay man has ever won the Oscar. I wonder if that is prejudice or chance," he reflected at a recent BFI event (via The Guardian). McKellen, of course, is openly gay himself; as well as being a committed activist and co-founder of Lgbt charity Stonewall. He further mentioned both occasions he'd carried an acceptance speech to the Academy Awards marked with the words, "I'm proud to be the first openly gay man to win the Oscar"; though he's never been given the opportunity to say those words on stage.

Trivia: Name every openly gay actor who won an Academy Award and was out at the time of his/her nomination. To ease the overwhelm of the question, I'll give a hint: The number is under ten.  The answer: With the exception of Linda Hunt, who has been out since the 1980s, and Angelina Jolie, who sometimes referred to her bisexuality in interviews before her win in 2000, there have been zero other Lgbt actors who were out at the time of their win.  Ian McKellen just referred to this statistic in a new interview with Sky News. He says that both times he was nominated for an Oscar, he planned a speech acknowledging his sexual orientation.   "No openly gay man has ever won the Oscar; I wonder if that is prejudice or chance," he said, while pointing out that several straight actors – like Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman – have »

Personal Reflections On The Closing Of New York's Ziegfeld Theatre

22 January 2016 3:45 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Glory days: the Ziegfeld hosted many premieres over the decades including the 1972 gala for Bob Fosse's "Cabaret". Forty years later the Ziegfeld hosted Liza Minnelli and other cast members who returned for a screening of the restored version of the film.


By Lee Pfeiffer

In 1969 the Ziegfeld Theatre in Manhattan opened its doors for the first time. The lavish theater quickly won the hearts of movie fans. It was an elaborate place and showcased top films. It was considered New York's secondary jewel, however, as Radio City Music Hall was still alive and well and showing top-notch movies. Over the years Radio City closed its doors, a victim of changing times in the film industry. The Hall would only show family friendly films and there were precious few that could profitably play at the cavernous theater. You used to be able to get to a first run movie »
