Chaz Bono, more win GLAAD awards

Cher, Ellen DeGeneres and Josh Hutcherson all brought their star power to GLAAD’s annual Media Awards held on Sunday in Los Angeles.

DeGeneres kept things light, joking that the ceremony "is the largest award show honoring LGBT people in the media except for the Oscars, the Tonys and the Emmys!", reports E!.

Celebrity-surprise-of-the-night Cher showed up in a giant afro to present an award to her son, Chaz Bono, alongside his step-mom, congresswoman Mary Bono Mack.

"What I want to say is you are the most courageous person I know and you really deserve this award," she said during the poignant moment.

And “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson was also honored for his support of equal rights for the LGBT community through an organization he reps, Straight but Not Narrow.

“I'm sick of saying the words gay and lesbian," the 19-year-old actor said after Benicio Del Toro presented him with the Vanguard Award. "It's just people…One day I want my son to come home from school and be like, ‘Dad, I found this guy and I love him.' And I'll be like, ‘Yes, you do and that's OK!' I so want that. I'll hopefully make a million more movies but this is what I want to do with my life, changing the world and hopefully changing what people think."

Among the TV and films honored at the ceremony were "Beginners," Bono's documentary "Becoming Chaz," ABC's acclaimed series "Modern Family" and the TV programs "Drop Dead Diva" and "Hot in Cleveland."

    Freak show. Manifest evidence of the decline of civilization and the base debauchery of culture.

    How's that cadaver organ-donor dick working out for you, Chaz?

      we are not so much obsessed with you as we are repulsed by you. We don't care what you do in private, but the way you act in public is disgusting. Skinny men holding hands and singing show tunes while shopping for curtains, fat ugly women with crew cuts wearing work boots and overalls. It's like you go out of your way to call attention to your aberrant behavior, instead of keeping it to yourself like the rest of us.

    Chaz getz the award for Ugliest Guy that Used to Be a Cute Little Girl. There is nothing normal about this behavior. Keep your GLBT behavior in the closet where it belongs.

    Cher needs to retire that wig! As for Chaz, he got that award for having the courage to get a new appendage? That makes no sense.
