Bohemian Rhapsody, Bryan Singer

The GLAAD Media Awards nominees were announced Friday via a live-stream event from Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival.

According to Variety.com, the hit movie Bohemian Rhapsody was disqualified amid fresh allegations of sexual misconduct against director Bryan Singer, who was fired from the film.

An article published this week in The Atlantic quoted multiple men who claimed they were molested by Singer when they were underage.

Referring to the new allegations as "horrific," GLAAD informed Variety on Friday that they were taking action against Singer who is accused of misconduct with boys as young as 13.

"This week's story in The Atlantic documenting unspeakable harms endured by young men and teenage boys brought to light a reality that cannot be ignored or even tacitly rewarded," GLAAD said in a statement.

Singer, 53, vigorously denied the new allegations, calling The Atlantic's story a "homophobic smear piece." But GLAAD urged the news media to not allow Singer's use of "homophobia" to "gloss over the fact that survivors of sexual assault should be put first."

Singer was fired as director of Bohemian Rhapsody but he is still named as director in the film's credits.

GLAAD announced 151 nominees in 27 categories, including outstanding video games, kids & family programming, comedy and drama series, and outstanding blogs.

The blogs nominated in GLAAD's Outstanding Blog category are:

Gays With Kids
Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters
My Fabulous Disease
Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents
TransGriot

    I read the Atlantic article in full and it was not a "homophobic smear piece." That's ridiculous. What it is: This guy started some kind of fake streaming service that whose purpose was to "share stories of gay teens," but he ended up using it as a casting call to molest minors. From there, he and his circle of friends started recruiting young men and boys who were homeless or close to it, and basically used them as prostitutes.

    It was extremely disturbing to read and I was very disgusted. The four new victims who came out were very detailed about the parties he took them, the layout of what amounted to rape rooms.. It was horrifying.

    I don't see any way a person reads that article and thinks this guy is innocent. That he is STILL director of a movie about a sexual assault survivor, comic book movie or not, is disgusting.

    Good! Pedophiles shouldn’t be allowed to win awards in Hollywood!

  • Carrington

    but... he was fired from the film

  • iWasteTime

    That part!
    I've been confused by why he is still linked to the picture.
    He didn't direct the WHOLE film, they got him out of there

  • davine puddin

    I am angry because those actors did an amazing job. Dude was fired! Give the actor his just due

  • Tinytoon

    Actually, he is credited as the director. He was fired 2 weeks before filming ended. Another director is uncredited for those last 2 weeks. The film was basically in post production when he was fired.

  • sunni_daze

    But this isn't the first time we've heard about his escapades.

  • iWasteTime

    Thank You for the clarification, I appreciate it.

  • Nina Ross

    Basically a cover-up since they hired a pedophile

  • Guest

    This has been going on for the past 20 years or so they say. It sounds as if it was a whole ring of these men. That article in the Atlantic was so disturbing. I feel for the young men who went thru this. There was some that made it out alive and some who didn't. R.I.P Corey Haim, Brad Renfro and countless others.

  • Guest

    Read the Atlantic article. The film was being shopped around since 2010. The remaining members of Queen wanted him to do the film so his name has been attached to it since then.

  • Topic Influencer

    The Atlantic makes my ass itch. Always ALWAYS bringing shit up that for some reason sheds fake ass new light on something. This NOT their first time. They did this same shit with Nate Parker and Birth of A Nation. In BOTH instances ALL parties who hired both this sicko AND Nate were fully aware! Fukk them

  • stav

    Someone in the really higher ups of Hollywood is protecting this pedophile because he has a lot of pedophile dirt on many, many of them.

  • DroneRivers

    It sucks the whole cast and crew seem to be being punished along with him.

  • Renee26

    Oh my!!

    Brian Singer is another pervert that's been having sex with underage boys for YEARS. They talked about him in An Open Secret ...This has been his m.o since the early 00's.....

  • Logan Roberts

    Surviving Bryan Singer. I've been working extra hours recently, but has this story dominated tv, radio, internet, magazines & newspapers like R.Kelly did?

  • Bashi22

    #MeToo coming for gays too

  • ZZZ

    But was Rami Malek nominated for is acting in Bohemian Rhapsody as Freddie Mercury? He did a great job!

  • C Mack

    I’m sorry, but I need ppl to have the same energy they had when going after Bill Cosby and R. Kelly for Mr. Singer! Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey still out here living free while our men are the only ones being punished. Not saying they don’t deserve but why are black men the only ones brought to justice?

  • the guest

    THIS is the truth. Thank you for writing this. Kevin Spacey and Weinstein are serial predators and this Singer guy is a serial child molester but they are not in jail and won't be.

  • the guest

    They need to make a documentary about this guy and the other one who rapes the underage girls at Nickelodeon. The rumored to have raped younger Spears sister.

  • Blak

    nope, never gonna happen

  • Meme

    You see how this announcement coincided with MJ?

  • rockstar2142

    Kevin spacey is getting his due can’t say much for Harvey though.

  • rockstar2142

    The Mj stuff is nothing but a bunch of lies always has been. Folks out her to get money & tarnish legacies.

  • KcoolMuziq

  • Bashi22

  • PRECIOUS

    ???

  • Amilia A Lee

    Weinstein goes to trial in March and his wife left his ass lol

  • rockstar2142

    I knew the wife left just didn’t know he was going to trial

  • BdRmiz39

    Right!!!
    The 'Allegations' are Nowhere Near New.....
    But, yet and still, this guy has NEVER been kicked out of Hollywood.
    Gee. I Wonder Why???? /o_0

  • BdRmiz39

    Sure seems like it

  • Brown & Proud

    Not just raped her but impregnated her. That lil girl she had years ago is that chomos baby.

  • suganspice68

    Yes! He slayed that role!

  • suganspice68

    That is unfair they have to suffer

  • Cricket404

    Black men aren't the only ones being brought to justice. The Gymnastics trainer Larry Nassar was arrested for sexual assault, the Penn State Football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested. Bishop Eddie Long wasn't arrested but the black Preacher raping and impregnating his 14yo daughter in NY was. Schools are now teaching sexual abuse to elementary school children because it's a problem in all communities. It's not a witch hunt for black men it's a witch hunt for MEN that are sexual predators.

  • EMILY POST

    Mute the entire entertainment industry lol

  • http://browngirltightcurl.blogspot.com nellboogie

    Exactly. Inquiring minds...

  • C Mack

    And black men seem to be the ones the media continue to discuss. Making documentaries, etc.

    Please know I want all predators to be punished, but it seems that when it is a black men, the reports keep coming and the justice system works much swifter

  • SpiceGirl

    Complexion for protection

  • BdRmiz39

    Lol

  • sunni_daze

    Corey Haim's story broke my heart, maybe because I watched alot of his movies. Now I wonder was he being abused then too. Sad
