Dustin Lance Black, the young openly gay writer of Milk, won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, with Sean Penn taking the trophy home for his amazing transformation into Harvey Milk.
Good to know that i'm not biased in my selections for movie of the year. And now I can make my friends watch it without coming off as campy. If you haven't seen this movie, then by all means go to the theatre, or find it in the rental store when it comes out. It may change your perspective a bit.
