So, not everyone was so happy at the Oscars when Sam Smith won for Best Original Song and made a statement about being the “first openly gay winner.”
Mostly because, you know, he’s not the first openly gay winner…

Among those who are openly gay and have taken home the little golden statue in the past is Dustin Lance Black, who nabbed Best Original Screenplay in 2009 after writing Milk.

The writer, 41, called out the “Stay With Me” singer, 23, and accused him of texting his fiancé Tom Daley, 21.
“Hey [Sam], if you have no idea who I am, it may be time to stop texting my fiancé,” he tweeted with a link to his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards.

When Sam took the stage last night, he said, “I read an article a few months ago by Sir Ian McKellen, and he said that no openly gay man had ever won an Oscar. If this is the case — even if it isn’t the case — I want to dedicate this to the LGBT community all around the world.”
It since been suspected that he was referring to an interview the legendary actor gave last month, in which the 76-year-old lamented that no openly gay actor has ever won the highly coveted prize.
