    Jodie Foster is lesbian. I'm sure there are others, but so far, none that are out.

    Usually the Academy nominates those actors that are perceived to have given a memorable portrayol of someone that was already living or was a fictitous character. I don't think they should be considering gay actors unless they can achieve notoriety for a role well played, which I believe they do now.

    You ask a great question, but this article would have been more effective if you had listed some gay actors who were snubbed by the Academy. In the absence of such evidence, a cynic could say openly gay actors haven't been nominated because they simply haven't delivered Oscar-worthy performances. It's not fair to call the Oscars homophobic without a providing laundry list of snubs. I'm gay myself, but you haven't convinced me.

    The characters played by Hillary Swank in Boys Don't Cry and Felicity Huffman in Transamerica, were not GAY characters, they were TRANSGENDER (Brandon Teena) and TRANSSEXUAL (Bree) characters.
