The 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, hosted by Wanda Sykes, were held last night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. Honorees included Jim Parsons and Britney Spears.

GLAAD rewrites the script for LGBTQ acceptance. As a dynamic media force, GLAAD tackles tough issues to shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. GLAAD protects all that has been accomplished and creates a world where everyone can live the life they love. For more information, please visit www.glaad.org or connect with GLAAD on Facebook and Twitter.

In accepting her award, Spears said “I feel like our society has always put such an emphasis on what’s normal, and to be different is unusual or seen as strange but to be accepted unconditionally, and to be able to express yourself as an individual through art, is such a blessing. Events like this, the one we are attending here tonight, show the world that we are not alone. We can all join hands together here and know that we are all beautiful. And we can lift each other up and show our gifts without hesitation.”

The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, who was presented with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, also talked about Spears, saying “I remember watching [Spears] dance-walk down that school hallway in that Catholic-school uniform with those cute little pigtails and I remember feeling this sense of, ‘Oh yeah, that’s it. You can do it. You go out there and do it like Britney, and you get it’ . . . So thank you, Britney!”

Earlier this year, GLAAD announced 125 nominees in 21 English-language categories and 16 Spanish-language nominees in 4 categories. The nominees included This Is Us, Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, Battle of the Sexes, A Fantastic Woman, Billions, The Voice, Will & Grace and many other shows, films and figures in media and entertainment.
