How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

GLAAD Media Award Winners 2018

GLAAD,  The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, announces their annual awards in two parts each year. Earlier this month they handed out a slew of awards in Los Angeles with Britney Spears and Jim Parsons honored and this weekend they finished out in New York horing Ava DuVernay and Samira Wiley (though we haven't yet seen videos of the New York ceremony). Melissa Etheridge and Adam Lambert performed a new arrangement of Etheridge's classic hit "I'm the Only One" to mark the 25th anniversary of her quadruple platinum "Yes, I Am" album which was a watershed moment in LGBT visibility in rock and roll. 25 years... wow. Remember Juliette Lewis giving one her best performances ever in the video to "Come to My Window"? The latter song also won Melissa Etheridge her final Grammy Award though she's been nominated several times since.  

But back to the now or the recent now. This is probably the last time you'll hear about awards for Call Me By Your Name as the world moves on to whatever 2018 and 2019 have in store. A complete list of the GLAAD awards is after the jump. And, because we like to go the extra mile for you, we've included links to anything we could find in the journalism realm that won an award so you can read or watch the winning articles or docs or fiction...
