Oscar's best picture nominee "Little Miss Sunshine" was deemed the Outstanding Film-Wide Release at the 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards held in L.A. Saturday night, April 14, 2007.
Here goes another accolade for "Little Miss Sunshine" following its triumph to nab Best Comedy at this year's Empire Awards. Depicting the road trip commenced by a dysfunctional family to a child beauty pageant, the flick delightfully was named the Outstanding Film-Wide Release by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation as it presented its 2007 GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night, April 14.
Successfully beating off other four contenders of "The Night Listener", "Running with Scissors", "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby", and "V for Vendetta", the dramatic comedy has already collected a number of prestigious film honors this year, notably two Oscars for best original screenplay and supporting actor for Alan Arkin. Other noted prizes earned include those at SAG Awards, PGA Awards, and BAFTA Awards.
Celebrated annually since 1990, GLAAD Media Awards honor various fields of media work for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. Split into four ceremonies, this year's event will next be held on April 28 and May 10 in San Francisco and Miami, respectively.
