If Elton John’s monologue about Liberace wasn’t embarrassing enough for you, cunnilingus enthusiast Michael Douglas’ tired gay jokes at the Emmys did the trick.
Winning Outstanding Lead Actor in a Movie or Miniseries for his performance as Liberace in Behind the Candelabra, Douglas could have accepted the award with grace. Instead, he decided to go for a gay-sex joke: “This is a two-hander,” he said of the award. Addressing his co-star Matt Damon, who was also nominated, Douglas said: “You really deserve half of this…So, do you want the bottom or the top?” Cue roaring applause. “Top? I figured that.”
To be fair, though, those awards are somewhat phallic. And Damon totally is a top.
