FILM OF 2013
‘Behind The Candelabra’ had everything: glitz, glamour, Matt Damon in white speedos, Matt Damon’s bare ass...
No one would actually believe this storyline for a second if it hadn’t really happened.
So. Bloody. Camp.
Liberace: “I have an eye for new and refreshing talent.”
Scott: “You have an eye for new and refreshing dick.”
CONCERT OF 2013
P!nk reached new heights as she flipped and flew above our heads and broke box office records in the process.
She received Twitter-hate after dancing onstage with a rainbow flag, but shut down the trolls with an epic smackdown!
BEST TV OF 2013
Oh, how we missed her! Everyone’s favourite private school girl returned to TV screens in 2013 and schooled us all on how to be quiche. Now, what do we have to do to get an entire "Mr. G" series?
BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST OF 2013
Dami Im created a social media meltdown every time she took to the stage on The X Factor Australia.
Brilliantly mentored by Dannii Minogue, Dami blossomed before our very eyes.
Best of all, she remained humble through the process.
SINGLE OF THE YEAR
Hip Hop is not exactly the genre you’d expect a marriage equality anthem to come from, but maybe that’s what added to this song's power and poignancy. 'Same Love' was recorded during the campaign for Referendum 74, which upon approval in 2012, legalized same sex marriage in Washington state. It became the first ever US Top 40 song to promote and celebrate same sex marriage. Game changing!
ALBUM OF THE YEAR
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga stopped at nothing to flog their albums in 2013. Miley literally spread her legs every chance she had. Meanwhile, all Beyoncé had to do was forget to tell us that she’d released her album to outsell them all.
THEATRICAL PRODUCTION OF THE YEAR
A book by Harvey Fierstein, a score from Cyndi Lauper, a string of Tony Awards, backflipping drag queens, and a controversial appearance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. 2013 was the year of ‘Kinky Boots’!
PAGE-TURNER OF 2013
Four decades in the biz will give you quite a story to tell and Tina’s autobiography didn’t disappoint!
From visiting Liza’s walk-in closet, to dining at Buckingham Palace with Charles and Camilla, performing with Donna Summer in New York, or rocking the stage at Mardi Gras. No wonder we couldn’t put this book down!

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Move over Taylor Swift - here's our kind of southern sweetheart!
In 2013, Steve Grand was “redneckognized” as the first openly gay male in Country music. ‘All-American Boy’ had viewers holding their breath as his tale of unrequited love unfolded. He can lay his boots under our bed anytime!

LOL! OF 2013
Walking onstage at Sydney Opera House, Kathy Griffin warned that this was not going to be a night of classical music. Instead it was a side-splitting intelligence briefing on all things Kanye, Cher, Miley, Anderson Cooper and the Kardashians.

GAY GASP! OF 2013
New York Pride.
What more is there to say? The 2013 Dance On The Pier was a party for the history books!
VIRAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Lillie McCloud proved that it’s never too late to seize your moment.
While her looks helped, it was her triumphant voice and presence that completely stole the show.
BEST DJ SET OF 2013
Lee Dagger of Bimbo Jones rocked the stage at Sydney’s Mardi Gras party.
His mash-up of ‘And I Try’ and Bingo Players’ ‘Rattle’ had the entire RHI bouncing!
