The 19th Annual GLAAD TV Winners


CBS soap opera "As The World Turns" was among the big winners at the 19th annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards held Monday, March 17.

Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, MTV Networks president Brian Graden and CBS soap opera "As The World Turns" were among the big winners at the 19th annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards Monday, March 17. Twenty-six of GLAAD's 40 awards were presented at New York's Marriott Marquis and ABC's "Boston Legal" was just the other winner in the TV categories.

"As The World Turns", which includes a gay romantic story line, won the award for the category of Outstanding Daily Drama, besting its heavy contender ABC's "All My Children". "Boston Legal", elsewhere, brought home the Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBT character) GLAAD Award, thanks to its "Do Tell".

Segments from CBS' "60 Minutes" ("Don't Ask Don't Tell") and ABC's "20/20" ("My Secret Self: A Story of Transgender Children") tied for outstanding TV Newsmagazine Journalism.

TV aside, Wainwright nabbed the award for Outstanding Music Artist for his album "Release the Stars".

Additional awards will be presented in South Florida on April 12 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Los Angeles on April 26 at the Kodak Theatre, and in San Francisco on May 10 at the San Francisco Marriott.
