Although The Social Network took the top prize at last night’s Golden Globe Awards several LGBT themed shows and/or actors also took top honors.

Many of these movies also appear on my best gay movies list of 2010 as well as the best LGBT on TV over the years. There’s several that I hardly know at all and certainly didn’t know the queer connections the shows have on their staff.

A complete list is below.

  • Best Performance by Actor Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Chris Colfer (Glee)
  • Best Performance by an Actress Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Jane Lynch (Glee)
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, Natalie Portman (Black Swan)
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Annette Benning (The Kids Are All Right)

“Gay and lesbian actors, characters and storylines are not only helping build support for full equality, but are also generating unprecedented box office success and critical acclaim,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “Last night’s Golden Globe winners and nominees are a testament to the increased support for our community among everyday Americans and exemplify a new entertainment industry standard that is more inclusive than ever before. GLAAD congratulates yesterday’s LGBT nominees and winners.”

Another touching scene played out when Glee‘s Chris Colfer took the stage saying, “Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates, who are constantly told ‘no’ by the people in their environments, by bullies at school that they can’t be who they are or have what they want because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids.”
