Sixth Annual Cosmique Movie Awards

Honoring films released in the 2005 calendar year

 

It was a gay old time at the Sixth Annual Cosmique Movie Awards.

It probably comes as little surprise that Brokeback Mountain fared very well, winning 9 of its 15 nominations. The film took top honors for Best Film, Best Director (Ang Lee), Best Supporting Actor (Jake Gyllenhall), Best Drana, Best Queer Film, Best Script, Best Cinematography, and a few eye candy categories: Sexiest Ensemble and Actor's Character You Would Most Like to be Intimate With (Jake Gyllenhaal again, the only person to take home two awards this year).

But even from Brokeback, the LGBT community was represented like never before. Four of the five Best Actor nominees played gay (the award went to Philip Seymour Hoffman for Capote), and Felicity Huffman won Best Actress for her trans performance in Transamerica. Top acting categories were rounded out with Amy Adams' win for Best Supporting Actress for Junebug.

And for the first time ever, a longtime Cosmo voter received a nomination and an award: Mark Sargent won Best Cameo for his appearance in the documentary 24 Hours on Craigslist.

New Hall of Fame inductees included To Kill a Mockingbird, Ingrid Bergman, Marlon Brando, Lily Tomlin, and Gene Wilder.
