“Glee,” “Modern Family” split GLAAD award Sunday night

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It was a tie Sunday night at the GLAAD Awards, as “Glee” and “Modern Family” both accepted the prize for outstanding comedy prize.

Chris Colfer and Mike O’Malley of “Glee” accepted the award with “Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Ariel Winter at the 22nd Annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards, held at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles, according to THR.

Other winners on the eveing included Lifetime’s “Project Runway” as outstanding reality program; “I Love You Phillip Morris,” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, as outstanding film — limited release; and MSNBC’s “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell” as outstanding TV journalism segment for its “Fort Worth Speech.”

THR also reports that NBC Entertainment president Robert Greenblatt “was presented with the Stephen F. Folzak Award, which is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a difference in promoting equality for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”

“I’m in a position to get things through a process and get them on the air. So, that’s what I’m going to try to do,” Greenblatt said. “I wish that the success of ‘Queer as Folk’ and ‘L Word’ had spawned dozens and dozens of shows all across the TV landscape that had all kinds of gay characters. There are gay characters in various shows here and there. But I think it’s a process. Some years it sort of pushes forward and some years it doesn’t.”
