With all the bad news lately for Smash, NBC’s ratings-afflicted musical dramedy, there was finally a glimmer of good over the weekend as the show took home top honors at the GLAAD Awards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation rewarded Smash with its prize for Outstanding Drama Series during the 24th annual awards ceremony on March 16. The show beat out fellow nominees Degrassi, Grey’s Anatomy, The L.A. Complex and True Blood (so, not exactly the fiercest of competition).
Samuel D. Hunter’s gripping off-Broadway drama The Whale also earned its keep at the awards, taking home the prize for Outstanding New York Theatre: Broadway & Off-Broadway. The show managed to beat a handful of other worthy contenders, including Bring It On, The Columnist, Cock and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Michael Perlman's From White Plains won in the Off-Off-Broadway category.
