    Is MTV still a thing?

      SInce they stopped showing music videos and animation and just because an all reality TV program featuring “actors” in the 16-30 range, I pretty much lost interest.

  • JT

    MTV has been very gay supportive over the years, introducing gay characters in its programming way back.

    • Todd20036

      Yes, they are. I’ll give them that. But they are supposed to a music program

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        My, cranky this morning? 🙂

        • Todd20036

          Get off of my lawn!

      • jugomono

        MTV hasn’t been just music for decades.

    Congrats, guys!

    Is anyone really 19 and 21?

    • Acronym Jim

      There was a time in the mid-eighties when I was both 19 and 21. I had to get into the bars some way!

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Such a wonderful movie

  • Do Something Nice

    They certainly are cute. And that movie was fantastic. But I wish the ‘adult’ Chiron got some recognition.

    Yaaas!
    BLACK LOVE… I LIVE! 💜💜💜💜💜💜

  • Bj Lincoln

    Awesome! The first time was Keven Kline and Tom Selleck from “In and Out”. One of my all time favorite films.

    • Bubba in TX

      And a great kiss.

    • whollyfool

      Brokeback Mountain kiss….

  • Mike Knife

    It is good to see young black men saying it is ok to kiss, god knows they have been beaten down for so long by anti-gay Christians and their own people. Times are gonna change.

  • greenmanTN

    This is a side issue I guess, but when I was growing up I never imagined I would see two young men nominated, much less winning, an award for “best kiss.”

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    That it’s Black Love is an added bonus…if only to really piss off the “Godly Christians” of ‘Murika.

    Loved the movie and yes, that kiss deserved the award.

      Was it Jimmy Kimmel who cracked “The movies are so dark this year. The only happy ending was the one halfway through ‘Moonlight'”. 😉
