LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- "Brokeback Mountain," the story of two cowboys grappling with their love for each other, was the top Golden Globe contender Tuesday, picking up seven nominations, including best dramatic picture.
It also was nominated for best director (Ang Lee), best actor in a drama (Heath Ledger) and best supporting actress in a drama (Michelle Williams) as well as best screenplay, best original score and best original song.
"Good Night, and Good Luck," "The Constant Gardener," "A History of Violence" and "Match Point" also were nominated for best dramatic picture.
The nominations came a day after "Brokeback Mountain" won the New York Film Critics Circle's best picture, best director and best actor (Ledger) awards.
Don't be fooled here. The attention "Brokeback Mountain" is receiving has nothing to do with the quality of the movie as it has to do with the continuing war being made against traditional moral values, truth, marriage and God's will. Think about it. One of the most masculine icons of American culture, the cowboy, is being maligned. Then too, the main characters (again) are both married with children, which makes you wonder how accepting would viewers be of this storyline if it was a man and a woman (instead of 2 men) in seperate marriages who found lust with each other?
By making a movie about 2 married men who find love with each other, "Brokeback" elicits compassion from liberals more concerned with sexual proclivity than adultery while appealing to the double standard the country holds on behalf of gays. "Brokeback" also "recruits" more people into looking at homosexuality as being normal as well as accepting same-sex marriage. To think there's already talk of "Brokeback" getting an Oscar for Best Film.
Yet it shouldn't surprise any of us, that this is the type of movie the Hollywood Left would choose to promote and celebrate so heavily. But this movie, this attempt at ridicule by deception, really takes the cake for arrogance, moral depravity and is the ultimate "cheap shot" to tradition, which should be evident to all at this point.
