Hit shows True Blood and 30 Rock were award winners at last night's Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards in New York last night, with the HBO series snagging Outstanding Drama Series, and the NBC comedy with Outstanding Individual Episode!

As most know, True Blood features numerous gay characters, like Nelsan Ellis' Lafayette and villainous vampire Russell Edgington, played by Denis O'Hare. Meanwhile, 30 Rock was honored for the specific episode Klaus & Greta, in which Tina Fey's Liz Lemon accidentally outs her cousin during a visit home, and ends up letting him live with her!

Excellent! So well-deserved!

  1. 1

    So is it cool if we have a straight people only media awards show or would that be promoting inequality…?



  2. 2

    Thank you for posting this. I am never going to watch any of these shows again…!! GLAAD is a very very sad organisation.
    A bunch of mentally sick people trying to have a say in the world…….hahahahahahahahaaaaa!!
    Everybody know that homosexuality is a serious mental retardation and the reason we put up with you is because we feel really sorry for you…..you actually think that putting your cock in another mans ass is ok!!
    You are very weak and yous should not be allowed to walk amongst normal people!! You are a true shame!!!

    You should've given Ricky a shout out…he's had a great year. He came out, wrote a good book and released a really good cd. He's a great role model for gay and straight people alike.

    And Princess of Truth, I think you just need a dick period. Put it in your mouth, your ass, whereever…but you need sex badly or else you wouldn't be such a hateful shit head. Its okay sweet…fucking is fun. Step away from your bag of doritos, the huge bag of donuts and your computer and get a life. (and a dick—-a big one)

    Re: Steph759 – The lack of gay people on television and in the media for years has been a problem. That is the inequality that these type of award shows try to balance out. Straight people have rights that second class gay citizens do not. Thinking you have a homophobic streak or you wouldn't be throwing out such negativity. At least your comment was not as moronic as Princess of Truth. But still….

    yeah feel free. have your straight only media awards show. go for it Steph759 whatever makes you happy. oh i think you missed that lots of the people who win GLAAD Media Awards are heterosexual and are happy to be part of the ceremony.

    Re: AttFinch – I am not commenting on the straight people participating, I am commenting on that fact that these type of awards ceremonies and action groups are promoting inequality and the imbalanced treatment that goes on in our society. I will be the first to admit that gay people (and many others) have been mistreated in the past, but reversing old standards does not create equality, it just turns the imbalanced scales of fairness around.

    Should people be treated as 2nd class citizens? Absolutely not.
    Should someone get a leg up in society because of orientation/race/enter minority qualification here? No….remember, that's what we were complaining about in the first place.

    I am also a minority (I won't tell you what kind though) - and I just want to be treated equally, not get free college and my own award show.

    well said steph 759, well said. princess of truth, i respect your opinion. i too am getting really sick of having 'this' shoved in my face every time i tune into tv, radio or my computer to read the current events. i'm so totally sick of it all. who gives a fuck what happens in the bedroom? not i, so quit making it SO obvious already. minorities and special interest groups are the most opinionated and prejudiced. to hell with all of you!!!

    Re: Steph759 – as long as there is homophobia and gays are treated as second class citizens there will be a need for groups such as GLAAD. having a show like the GLAAD Media Awards is just a way of thanking people for standing up against injustice and for representing gay people in a positive light, which i'm sure you even have to admit is not something that has been done in the past. whats wrong with groups of people who have been oppressed having a show to uplift and encourage them to feel that they to deserve to be treated equally and fairly.
