For many movie and television fans, the SAG Awards trophy is the one that really counts, and on Sunday (January 25) the Screen Actors Guild handed out a slew of hardware to some very deserving recipients.
Not surprisingly, “Birdman” ended up winning the Outstanding Performance By a Cast in a Motion Picture honors, giving Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Edward Norton something to smile about.
Every year the folks over at GLAAD seek to honor media figures for fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards just unveiled the nominees.
GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told E! News, "For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have raised the bar for inclusion in news and entertainment, transforming LGBT representation in media and moving the dial for acceptance across the globe.

Controversial documentarian Michael Moore tweeted, “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse… But if you're on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who've come 7K miles, you are not a sniper, u are brave, u are a neighbor.”
