Lost Queer Oscar Moment?

As we all know the Oscars were this past Sunday. Aside from being overall pretty boring and James Franco looking less than thrilled to be there, a hidden controversy occurred.

Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin, before they presented shared a small dance and man on man kiss! However, rather than showing it they had a long (and rather awkward) shot of Penelope Cruz shown during the time of the kiss. The official reason behind why the kiss was not shown is because it was "unscripted" and the shots were pre-planned for the entire show.

What do you guys think? The actor side of me wants to believe what the Academy says, but I can't help but think that everytime two men kiss on Television it's covered up or a controversy, but when female celebrities like Madonna, Christina, and Britney do it, it is ok.

Think about it.
