Ford & Glee Dominate Glaad Media Awards

TOM FORD's directional debut A SINGLE MAN was lauded at Saturday's (17Apr10) GLAAD Media Awards - but the designer-turned-filmmaker was unable to pick up his trophy as he was stranded in London due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland.
The movie, starring Colin Firth, was named Outstanding Wide Release Film by officials at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
But Ford's partner Richard Buckley had to take the stage at the annual gay honours ceremony in Los Angeles to pick up the prize, as the star was stuck in the U.K. because of the travel chaos across Europe which has grounded almost every flight out of the continent.
Hit U.S. show Glee landed the top TV trophy - the musical was named Outstanding Comedy Series, and creator Ryan Murphy praised lesbian actress Jane Lynch and gay actor Chris Colfer for their involvement in the popular programme.
Murphy told the audience at the glitzy gala, "We have a great responsibility with the show," and vowed Colfer's character, Kurt Hummel "would never be the victim".
Drew Barrymore received the Vanguard Award for her continued gay rights activism.
Accepting the honour, she said, "The thing that means the most to me about an evening like this, and why I want to fight and be outspoken about this is because there are so many people who are in desperate need of families."
Gay comedienne Wanda Sykes was handed the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, and Adam Lambert performed at the ceremony, which was hosted by transgender actress Candis Cayne and gay actor Wilson Cruz.
