Audio: How far will FRC take fibbery? 'To infinity and beyond!'

by Jeremy Hooper

Look, we get it. The Family Research Council would rather be roasted by Ricky Gervais than give any sort of award to pro-inclusion films like The Kids Are All Right or TV shows like "Glee." We all get it.

But in doing so, the anti-equality group really needs to stop lying about what did and did not win:

We use the strong word "lying" here because it's exactly what FRC is doing. Empirically. On multiple occasions, they've fibbed about Toy Story supposedly being shut out by the evil Hollywood agenda:

Toy Story 3 took home the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film at tonight's 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

We'd actually be 100% fine with Toy Story 3 getting a Best Picture nod for the Academy Awards, because it was a great flick. But at the Globes, the best pictures are broken down into the categories of 201101211113Comedy/Musical, Drama, and Animated. And not only was Toy Story nominated in its category of eligibility -- it won the darn Globe!

So go ahead, FRC: Paint Chris Colfer's emotional high point as Hollywood's moral low. Call The Kids anything but All Right. Decry Hollywood's focus on inclusive art with the fire of a thousand Passion of the Christ DVDs. But leave Buzz, Woody, and easily verifiable fallacy out of these soundbites.
