Weinstein presents Butler with special recognition award
Attendees at Saturday’s GLAAD Awards in Gotham were encouraged to pledge money for the gay org, and those efforts led hosts Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith to auction off “my juicy lips and his thin ones,” as Rivera put it.John Stamos even jumped in and auctioned off his kisses, and by the end of bidding, an anonymous donor gave $5,000 to see “Smash” lead Megan Hilty smooch with Monteith on the stage of the Marriott Marquis. Later, Carson Kressley had a message for Stamos: “I will be giving out free lady kisses in the gender neutral bathroom.” But the night was more than one big kiss-a-thon. Harvey Weinstein presented a special recognition award to Katy Butler, who started the petition to get the MPAA to change the rating of “Bully” from R to PG-13. “God must work in mysterious ways to have someone like me distribute this movie,” said Weinstein. Also honored were producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who said being gay is “part of whom I am, so it impacts the work that we do.”
