Celebs bust loose for the GLAAD Awards

Kristin Chenoweth receives Vanguard Award

This year’s GLAAD Awards brought out celebs in the flesh, as well as in wax, at the Westin Bonaventure on Sunday.

Guests were greeted by Madonna and Jane Lynch — courtesy of Madame Tussauds — and they were treated to cocktails passed around by shirtless men dressed as Vikings. The furs were fake, but the waiters’ lean bodies looked very real, although definitely waxed.

Co-host Amy Poehler, with Rashida Jones, told the crowd, “Only in an organization as open-minded and inclusive as GLAAD could two straight women — from good colleges, who have engaged in very little sexual experimentation — be asked to host such a gay evening.”

Colin Farrell and Kirsten Dunst were on hand to present, with Farrell joking, ” I didn’t know Amy Poehler was gay!”

Sean Hayes gave the Vanguard Award to Kristin Chenoweth, saying of his “Promises, Promises” friend, “On Ambien, she flies higher than anyone I know.”

Dolly Parton turned out to be a surprise presenter and the evening’s showstopper. Joking that she was there “to come out,” Parton alluded to her buxotic endowment, cupping her anatomical largesse and “carrying them” about the stage. Oh, and she also presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to NBC’s Robert Greenblatt.
