I feel semi-stupid for asking this, but I'm confused. Who is the lady in the bright blue strapless dress that was up on stage when TNH won at the Emmys? Is she a producer or something? Because the only mention I've seen of her on Tumblr had her mis-tagged as someone else...

I believe it is Alexis Martin Woodall (who is one of the producers).

EXCLUSIVE: HBO Doc Explores Anti-Gay Sentiment in Russia

Matt Bomer narrates as British filmmaker Ben Steele exposes Russian homophobia

It’s estimated that just 1% of Russia’s current LGBT population lives openly, with the passing of a recent anti-gay law forcing many into the closet out of fear. Though homosexuality has technically been legal in Russia for 21 years, gay men and women are often targeted both by the police and vigilantes due to laws that prevent them from speaking about LGBT issues. Pro-gay activists are blocked from mentioning homosexuality and assembling in groups and internet groups congregate with the goal of luring gay people out of the closet and making their lives living hells. “Hunting season is open…and we are the hunted,” says one Russian gay man who was blinded in one eye after being assaulted.

In response to this, British filmmaker Ben Steele has worked with HBO to create the exposé Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia. Narrated by Matt Bomer, the documentary aims to look at Russia’s climate of anti-LGBT sentiment from a number of perspectives, including interviews with gay Russians.

The film debuts Monday, October 6 on HBO. Watch an exclusive trailer  [out.com]

What was your favorite part of working with Matt Bomer?Matt is incredible to work with ! He is truly passionate about the art of acting, and personally, he is so kind to everyone he works with. Such a genuine, warm-hearted soul ! Let me preempt the following story by saying thet Matt’s character has a robotic hand, not unlike Luke’s at the end of Empire Strikes Back, only a much less sophisticated and clunkier version. So, Matt’s first day on set was a scene in which he lies in bed with his wife and, out of frustration, begins masturbating under the covers. He was so cool and game with this ludicrous start to his shoot, and I’ll never forget when he suggested that he use his robot hand to do the deed. We laughed so hard, and it’s a great moment in the film.My favorite moment , though, would have to be right after we did the read-though of the script, a couple days prior to the shoot, and Matt got a phone call from his agent saying that he had booked The Normal Heart, Getting to be there for such an enormously joyful and exciting moment in his life was extraordinary- Jack Plotnick on Instinct Magazine [x]

sorry in advance if this is rude, but i just saw in your tags on the matt bomer and simon halls photo that you now hate sherlock, and i guess im just wondering why? im not having a go at you or trying to be rude or anything like that im honestly just curious

Oh, it’s fine. At the Emmy’s, Sherlock won tons of awards over The Normal Heart, which made me sad and angry.  Don’t get me wrong, I really liked Sherlock, but compared to The Normal Heart…yeah. Not as good. In my opinion.

Moffat won best writing (for Sherlock, “His Last Vow”) over Larry Kramer (for writing The Normal Heart). Benedict Cumberbatch won best actor in a movie for the same Sherlock ep over Mark Ruffalo for The Normal Heart. And most of all, I was incredibly upset that Martin Freeman won best supporting actor in a tv movie (for Sherlock, His Last Vow”) over Matt Bomer for The Normal Heart.

Like I said, I actually l liked Sherlock. Although, tbh, I thought the 3rd season was the worst, and the last episode (which won all these awards over The Normal Heart) was the worst of all (I honestly couldn’t even remember if I had seen the last ep, it was THAT unmemorable to me).

I’m just heartbroken that The Normal Heart lost almost all the awards it was nominated for (many of which they were predicted to win). And I’m taking it out on Sherlock, even though YES I KNOW…it’s not “their” fault. (I actually think a lot of the reason boils down to homophobia, but I’m not going there right now). I am human. I am irrational. But there you have it. Ever since the Emmys, thinking about Sherlock just makes me sad and upset.

But yeah. That’s my opinion, anyway.
