GLAAD honors year’s best

Org hands out annual prizes

Andy Cohen hosted the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday, inviting Tina Fey to the Marriott Marquis stage.

“If you could be gay for one person on television, who would you dive in the lady pond for?” he asked.

“I’ve been asked this in the past,” said Fey. “By the way, how many people in this room are just sitting there thinking that I need to work on my triceps?

“My stock answer is Oprah Winfrey. But I would say maybe Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman,” she said.

Accepting the award for TV drama, the king of Mississippi himself, Denis O’Hare, read a note from “True Blood” creator Alan Ball.

“I would thank them for recognizing our very positive portrayal of gays and lesbians as blood thirsty monsters, black magic petitioners, prostitutes and drug dealers,” he said.

The evening’s loudest cheers were for honoree Ricky Martin, who said, “I just wanted to be free. I can say that today, I am free. GLAAD, let’s go to Latin America and let’s share the love.” – — Peggy Truong
