So many stars turned out for the 2016 event.
As usual, the annual GLAAD Media Awards was a hilarious, heart-warming and heart-breaking affair. Celebrities came out in droves to defend this discriminated community, to accept recognition for their work to help these communities and to talk about all the positive changes that are happening to aid in the equalization of humanity.
Mariah Carey's GLAAD speech was everything
This year's ceremony was hosted by 'Orange Is The New Black' star Laverne Cox and featured a whole host of stars in attendance to accept their various awards and make some inspiring speeches. Here are just a few of the top moments at the 27th annual GLAAD event:
Mike's current life revolves around his girlfriend, a healthy amount of weed and his job at the local cash & carry but little does he know that things are about to dramatically change. Even though most people would think it unlikely - especially Mike- he's actually been programmed by the government into a super agent and has been 'sleeping' in this quiet town.
In order to survive, Mike must adapt and embrace his new abilities and find out who's out to kill him.
British director Nima Nourizadeh originally started out directing music videos and has shot promos for Dizzee Rascal, Franz Ferdinand and Lily Allen. Since the Nima broke into Hollywood with his directorial debut Project X.
High school can be the worst time for some people, and for Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann), it turned out to be especially horrible. His parents inform him that his classmate, Rachel Kushner (Olivia Cooke), has been diagnosed with leukemia. The two make a fast friendship out of a mutual intention to not be sympathetic, but that plan doesn't work out as well as planned. Greg and his best friend Earl make 'bad films' in their spare time, and decide to devote a film to Rachel. Unfortunately, as they specialise in bad films, they struggle to make something that will truly honour her and cheer her up.

A sparky ensemble helps make this film entertaining even if the plot is simplistic and the themes very tame for a movie that is trying so hard to be anarchic. August: Osage County this isn't! Instead, it blends warm comedy, silly slapstick and a heavy dose of sentiment to tell a story that's engaging but never remotely surprising. But the terrific cast makes it well worth a look.
It opens as Judd (Jason Bateman) sees his life go from bad to worse: he catches his wife (Abigail Spencer) in bed with his boss (Dax Shepard), then learns that his father has died. Back home for the funeral, his mother (Jane Fonda) announces that she wants Judd to sit shiva, seven days of mourning, with his three estranged siblings: frazzled housewife Wendy (Tina Fey), frustrated Paul (Corey Stoll) and party boy Phillip (Adam Driver). Everyone in this family is dealing with relationship issues, so they all get involved in each others' lives again, even though none of them likes to talk about these things (except their hilariously over-sharing mother). So as Judd and Wendy reconnect with old flames (Rose Byrne and Timothy Olyphant, respectively), Paul and Phillip have to clarify things with their partners (Kathryn Hahn and Connie Britton).
Each of the various subplots touches on a big issue, although Jonathan Tropper's script never digs too deeply, relying on superficial comedy and simplistic emotion rather than anything too provocative. This is an odd approach for a film that is essentially trying to say that life is messy. Even the funeral and grieving are used more for laughs than emotion, as are old rivalries and perceived betrayals. Much of the brawling, insulting and teasing is genuinely funny, but only because the cast members have so much fun with it all. Bateman offers his usual likeable everyman, generating terrific chemistry with Fey, Stoll and Driver, as well as some jagged wit in his scenes with the always superb Byrne. And Fonda steals the show as an unapologetic woman who says the wrong thing at just the right time.

Judd Foxman thought he had the perfect life with an enjoyable job, a pleasant apartment and a beautiful wife. However, he soon loses it all after bursting in on his boss in bed with his wife after an apparently lengthy affair. Unfortunately, things only seem to get worse when his sister phones him to tell him that their father passed away. He has to return home to his mother for the funeral where he meets the rest of his siblings and several old faces, but while most of them are hoping to make a quick exit, their mother has other ideas insisting that they spend a week at home in mourning. As awkward as it seems at first, Judd soon finds his pain to be easing with the support of his family and he soon starts to wonder if he wants a simple home life at all.

Connie Britton would be happy to return to 'American Horror Story'.
Connie Britton would like to return to American Horror Story. The actress is currently starring in Nashville as Rayna James but, back in 2011, she was playing Vivien Harmon on American Horror Story: Murder House. The 46-year-old actress played opposite numerous stars of the current series including Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Jamie Brewer and Evan Peters.
Connie Britton would like to return to American Horror Story.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Britton stated she hopes to return to the show. She appears to miss being around her former co-stars and the show saying "I've actually have been talking to them [the show's producers] this season, because they're down in New Orleans and I'm in Nashville. I'm said, "Okay, let's see if we can try to figure this out."

Robert Redford and his wife Sibylle Szaggars posed on the red carpet at the premiere of his new ocean adventure movie 'All Is Lost' during the New York Film Festival. Redford is the sole actor in the flick about a lone sailor whose boat gets wrecked beyond repair leaving him stranded on a life raft in the middle of a storm.
Even as this comedy strains to be goofy and transgressive, it catches us by surprise simply because it dares to explore first-time sexual experiences through female eyes. And Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) brings her usual sardonic wit to the lead role, merrily offending the more timid moviegoers while making more adventurous fans wish the film went even further.
Plaza plays Brandy, who graduated at the top of her Boise high school class. But with that goal achieved, she wonders if she neglected to prepare properly for university social life, so she makes a summer to-do list of sex-related tasks leading, hopefully, to losing her virginity to the hunky guitar-strumming lifeguard Rusty (Porter). She works with him at the local swimming pool along with her nice-guy best pal Cameron (Simmons), who's of course secretly in love with her. But as Brandy works through the list with the help of her friends (Shawkat and Steele) and her experienced big sister (Bilson), she starts to worry that her emotions are getting in the way.
Thankfully, writer-director Carey refuses to let this turn into a romantic slush-fest, keeping the encounters jagged and often very funny. The script is packed with hilariously squirm-inducing conversations about sex, many involving Brandy's far too helpful mother (Britton). Although her dad (Gregg) and her loser boss (Hader) understandably don't want to know. Meanwhile, when the local guys (Glover and Mintz-Plasse) find out about Brandy's list, they are sure to tick off a few items themselves, as does a visiting rock star (Samberg).
