Kristin Chenoweth, Dolly Parton rally for GLAAD Media Awards in L.A.
Thunderous applause greeted the country star as she hit the stage at the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, presenting a prize to NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. Parton spoke sweetly of Greenblatt's varied television productions, all featuring LGBT characters.
The singer was introduced by Amy Poehler, hosting the show with "Parks and Recreation" costar Rashida Jones. As Poehler approached the microphone to hype their special guest, one fan shouted out how much he loved her, to which she replied, "Sit down, Colin Farrell."
Shows "Glee" and "Modern Family" both nabbed outstanding comedy series, accepted, respectively, by Chris Colfer and Mike O'Malley, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Ariel Winter.
Broadway and TV cutie Kristin Chenoweth was presented the Vanguard Award by her "Promises, Promises" leading man Sean Hayes. The pint-sized Broadway star got plenty of laughs and even a few tears during her acceptance speech.
