Lesbian Parenting Film ‘The Kids Are All Right’ Earns Four Oscar Nominations

The Academy Award nominations have just been announced, and the “The Kids Are All Right” is among the recognized films. Congratulations to writer/director Lisa Cholodenko and everyone involved with the groundbreaking film! Cholodenko and LGBT ally and HRC New Yorkers for Marriage equality spokesperson Julianne Moore, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Jules, spoke about their work on the film in the summer 2010 issue of HRC’s Equality magazine. The funny, heartfelt movie about a lesbian couple whose teenage children set out to search for their biological father was nominated in the following categories:

  • Best Picture
  • Best Actress (Annette Bening)
  • Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo)
  • Best Original Screenplay (Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg)

In the Equality magazine interview, Moore got right to the heart of the matter: “We’re all pretty much alike. Speak to anybody – two men, two women, or a man and a woman – about a long-term relationship and you’re going to hear the same kind of stories. I think that’s the most important thing about this film.” Click here for the full list of nominees, and don’t miss the awards show – it will be held on Sunday, February 27.
