“Moonlight” Winning Best Kiss Scene Is The Right Pick, But If We’re Being Honest, It’s More Of A HandJob Scene

Quite the year for Moonlight. I want to be serious by first stating that Moonlight was in fact a good movie. I get it, it’s suppose to be some artsy fartsy movie for “high-brow” culture. Well let me tell you, there’s nothing High Brow about me watching that movie in sweat pants on a Wednesday morning because I live like I’m unemployed. Moonlight although it wasn’t my favorite movie this year, was really good. There was a level of anxiety and curiosity that at least kept me going. I don’t know maybe its like a very gritty version of Degrassi If it focused on one person. One gay African American person in one of the roughest neighborhoods. It’s definitely worth a watch and delivers all the right messages about the stigmas of being a gay black person in America.

But if we’re being honest with our selves, that was not a Kiss Scene, It was a Hand Job scene. Like not an Over-The-Pants-Handjob scene. An aggressive, I’m gonna get in there and stroke his dick until completion Hand job scene. Yea I know it all started with a kiss. A very well delivered kiss between 2 guys, but in conversation at parties when you and someone share a conversation about Moonlight and you ask them about the scene, the conversation will go like this.

You: Hey what did you think about the scene?

Them: What scene?

You: You know, the kiss scene?

Them: Oh you mean the hand job on the beach scene.

You can’t defer to that scene and not think of it as a scene highlighted by a hand job, not some kiss. And for the sake of Chiron, you shouldn’t either. More happened on that night that brought him pure bliss. Guy was randomly called up and his first at bat after being confused about his sexuality hits a double. Shouldn’t reduce moments like that to just a best kiss. I get for the sake of culture you gotta have Moonlight winning that very prestigious MTV Movie & TV award and It honestly was the best Kiss Scene out of the group. But lets be clear about it and understand that if this were some alternate Zoolander award show where they have Slashies, it would be Best Handjob/Kiss scene and not the other way around.
