ABC CENSORED Gay Kiss Between Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem During The Academy Awards

During this years Academy Awards you might have noticed an awkward extended cut-away to Penélope Cruz when Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin appeared onstage to present the Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Screenplay (while wearing matching white suit jackets) The cut awat happened during  Bardem and Brolin’s impromptu presenter dance bit.

What you DIDN’T see while your screen was filled with an awkward looking Penelope Cruz was during that cutaway was that Brolin and Bardam shared a same sex kiss. 

ABC has not ofered or made comment on their decision to cut the man-on-man kiss which is interesting since at least half the audience both attending and more than half watching at home are gay.

Or perhaps ABC is still smarting and over compensating after the Adam Lambert debaucle from last year.
