4 April 13th, 2014 The Fosters, Days of our Lives, Bridegroom Honored At 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards!

Last night in ceremonies held in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton,  Days of our Lives,  The Fosters, Bridegroom and Behind the Candelabra were among the award recipients at the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, with more awards to be handed out in another ceremony in New York City on May 3rd.

The Fosters, featuring former OLTL and Sunset Beach star Sherri Saum, and has  B&B’s Joanna Johnson (Karen) as one of the shows EP’s,  took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series for the ABC Family series.  On hand to accept the honor were Saum, co-star Terri Polo, and co-creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg,

Outstanding Documentary was a tie, but one of the winners was the sensational Bridegroom, and on hand were Shane Bitney Crone (who’s story is the centerpiece of the film) and the film’s executive producer, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason.  The other documentary winner was Call Me Kuchu.

Days of our Lives had already won the Outstanding Daily Drama category, because there were no other nominees in the category for the depiction of Sonny and Will’s love story.   On hand at the event representing DAYS were Guy Wilson (Will) and Kate Mansi (Abigail).  Guy was tweeting many pics live from the event.

Freddie Smith (Sonny), who was one half of the honored storyline was not in attendance. Chandler Massey (Ex-Will), who was a major part of the success of the couple of Will and Sonny last year was not present, for those who may have been inquiring.

Behind the Candelabra, the television movie about the life of Liberace starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon took home the award for Outstanding TV Movie or Mini-Series!

And Rita Moreno presented Jennifer Lopez with the Vanguard Award for the work in the fight for equality for the LGBT community, which includes her work as executive producer on ABC Family’s The Fosters.

What do you think of some of the major winners/honorees from last night’s 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards?

    Freddie was in St Louis Michael promoting Nerium an anti aging cream that is in a lawsuit right now brought by Ray Liotta so perhaps sending a message to you and all the soap media just how much he hasn’t enjoyed the past few weeks or months

    Why do you keep trying to hide the fact that Freddie has lost interest in his own story on DAY’S because it has been ruined since Chandler Massey was fired and Guy Wilson took over. We all know Freddie Smith boycotted GLAADS and to be honest with you I’m proud of him for doing it, why would he want to be in the company of a man that has trash talked certain people on social media and gotten away with it. Why would Chandler attend he’s not stupid either he would only attend if Freddie was and as that didn’t happen he’s not going to be there is he. Also are you trying to tell us that in the two years Freddie and Chandler had been WILSON they didn’t need to attend the GLAADS to pick up the award they could have stayed at home, are you kidding me, the gay community love Freddie and Chandler as WILSON and they both knew that, that’s why they accepted the award and the GLAADS gave it to them, but this time they were slapped in the face when Guy Wilson and Kate Manis turned up to accept the award on Freddie and Chandler’s behalf because Guy Wilson doesn’t even understand the roll he is playing and Kate Mansi has nothing to do with the gay storyline except that she introduced Sonny and Will (Freddie and Chandler) and she is their cousin. So why was she even there?

    I find it odd that Days hasn’t had much coverage from the Glaad Awards, Freddie not being there is also odd. I would’ve thought that Glaad was more important then doing a Nerium event. I don’t know what’s going on with Freddie but something doesn’t sit right with all of this. I don’t even know why Guy Wilson was there he wasn’t part of Wilson last year. Something isn’t right in my opinion.
