The Fox musical-comedy Glee has
been named TV Show of the Year by gay entertainment website
In announcing the winner, Greg
Hernandez said it was a tight race between Glee and the ABC
Sunday night comedy Modern Family.
“Still, Glee continued to
move, entertain and inspire me in season 2 as much as it did in its
first year – if not more,” Hernandez
wrote in a blog post. “It just touched my LGBT heart more
often than did Modern Family and far more than any other show
on television, although I'm encouraged by the Teddy storyline on
90210 and continue to appreciate Scotty and Kevin on Brothers &
Hernandez praised the show for turning
Chris Colfer's gay character into a bullied teen.
“With the bullying epidemic in our
country making the lives of gay kids a living hell and leading some
to kill themselves, I can't think of a more important storyline on
television this year,” he said.
“It's for that and so many other
reasons why Glee wins the Greggy for TV Show of the Year!”
Also winning Greggys this year are
Criss for his portrayal of out-and-proud student Blaine on Glee,
music star Chely Wright, whose coming out gay story was named most
moving, and rocker
Adam Lambert, who was named Music Star of the Year.
