The coronavirus pandemic has forced organizations all over the world to abandon their plans for in-person events and take things virtual, and that’s what GLAAD, the world’s largest media advocacy organization focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) issues, did for its 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The awards honor various forms of media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.
The virtual ceremony, streamed on the organization’s Facebook page and YouTube account on Thursday night (a version will air on Logo on Monday, Aug. 3), was hosted by comedians Fortune Feimster and Gina Yashere, and featured appearances from and performances by several LGBTQ stars.
After being snubbed by Emmy voters earlier this week, FX’s Pose won the award for Outstanding Drama Series. Meanwhile, Pop TV’s heartfelt Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek, which was nominated for 15 Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy Series, took home the GLAAD Award in that category. Transparent‘s musical finale nabbed the award for Outstanding TV Movie, Netflix’s Tales of the City took home the award for Outstanding Limited Series, and MTV’s Are You the One? was honored with the award for Outstanding Reality Program.
On the movie side of things, Olivia Wilde‘s directorial debut Booksmart won the award for Outstanding Film for a movie that was released wide, while Rafiki took home the award for the limited release category.
