GLAAD Praises Golden Globe Nominees, Winners

LOS ANGELES - The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), congratulated the LGBT winners and nominees of this weekend's 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
"Gay and lesbian actors, characters and storylines are not only helping build support for full equality, but are also generating unprecedented box office success and critical acclaim," said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. "Last night's Golden Globe winners and nominees are a testament to the increased support for our community among everyday Americans and exemplify a new entertainment industry standard that is more inclusive than ever before. GLAAD congratulates yesterday's LGBT nominees and winners."
Among the LGBT and LGBT-inclusive Golden Globe winners:
• Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Chris Colfer (Glee)
• Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Jane Lynch (Glee)
• Best Television Series - Comedy Or Musical, Glee
• Best Motion Picture, The Kids Are All Right
• Best Original Song - Motion Picture, Burlesque
• Best Television Series – Drama, Boardwalk Empire
Actress Annette Bening also won in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical category for her portrayal of lesbian mom Nic in The Kids Are All Right.
The LGBT-inclusive hit series Glee received the GLAAD Media Award in the Outstanding Comedy Series category in 2010.
Among the LGBT and LGBT-inclusive Golden Globe nominees:
• Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical, Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right) [Moore received the Excellence in Media Award at the 15th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in 2004.]
• Best Television Series – Drama, The Good Wife
• Best Television Series - Comedy Or Musical, Modern Family
• Best Original Song - Motion Picture, Burlesque
• Best Screenplay - Motion Picture, Stuart Blumberg, Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right)
An especially poignant moment came when openly gay actor Chris Colfer (Glee) took a stand against anti-LGBT bullying while accepting his Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. "Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates, who are constantly told 'no' by the people in their environments, by bullies at school that they can't be who they are or have what they want because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids," Colfer said.
The Golden Globes come just days before nominees are announced for the 22nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect their lives. Those nominees are set to be announced Thursday, January 20, 2011. A complete list of GLAAD Media Awards Nominees will be available at
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) amplifies the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively. By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality.
