The drama! The glitter! The backstabbing! The bitchiness! The downward spirals! And the outfits!
Behind The Candelabra bowed on HBO this weekend, and my oh my, it’s hard to think of a more fabulous movie that ever was. From Michael Douglas’ brave and astonishing performance as Liberace to Matt Damon’s stunning sex appeal to Rob Lowe creeping us out as a reminder of Michael Jackson’s worst attributes, Steven Soderbergh’s biopic was one seriously epic slice of over-the-top gayness, a trashy guilty pleasure and an expertly made film rolled into one.
We expect it to win all the Emmys when September rolls around. Yes ― all of them.
In celebration, we’ve rounded up a few of the most fabulous aspects of this movie (since it would be impossible to round them all up). Check it out after the jump!
