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.
