The second and final batch of 2023 GLAAD Media Awards winners were announced on Saturday in New York City, with “Fire Island” and “Anything’s Possible” tying for Oustanding Film – Streaming/TV while Netflix’s “Heartstopper” won Outstanding Kids and Family Programming (Live-Action).

Outstanding Broadway Production went to “A Strange Loop,” while “The Problem With Jon Stewart” won Variety or Talk Show Episode. HBO’s “We’re Here” won Reality Series.

Maren Morris won the Excellence in Media award, and in her speech, took a shot at Tucker Carlson who had mocked the singer-songwriter for standing up to transphobia.

“Maybe I felt a little badass taking Tucker Carlson’s calling me a lunatic for standing up to transphobia [and] turning it into a t-shirt and raising $150,000 for LGBTQ+ charities,” she said. “That made me feel a little cool, but I don’t wanna gloat. I would never insult the recently unemployed.”

“What We Do in the Shadows” star Harvey Guillen hosted the event, which honors those in the media who have shown exemplary achievements for fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect our lives.
