The GLAAD Media Awards took place April 12 in Los Angeles, with comedian/actress Wanda Sykes as host.

GLAAD honored Britney Spears, Jim Parsons and outstanding LGBTQ images in film and television at the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

Halle Berry, Chloe Grace Moretz, Ryan Murphy, Adam Rippon, Gus Kenworthy, Rachel Bloom, Wilson Cruz, Trace Lysette, Anthony Rapp, Jazz Jennings, Tommy Dorfman, Zeke Smith and Ben Feldman were among the special guests, a press release stated.

Spears received GLAAD's Vanguard Award by surprise presenter Ricky Martin. The Vanguard Award is presented to media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance of LGBTQ people.

Writer/producer/director Ryan Murphy presented Parsons with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is presented to an LGBTQ media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting LGBTQ acceptance.

According to USA Today, Sykes joked about politics, movies and being queer. However, she also mentioned actor Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of sexual misconduct—and who chose to come out as gay shortly after the accusations became public.

Spacey was referenced again when Star Trek: Discovery stars and on-screen couple Anthony Rapp ( the first person to come forward and accuse Spacey ) and Wilson Cruz shared the stage.

Special honorees included Britney Spears and Jim Parsons. Other award winners were NBC series This Is Us ( Outstanding Drama Series ), Fox show Brooklyn Nine-Nine ( Outstanding Drama Series ), Disney Channel's Andi Mack ( Outstanding Kids & Family Programming ), A Fantastic Woman ( Outstanding Film-Limited Release ), Black Panther: World of Wakanda ( Outstanding Comic Book ) and Transgriot ( Outstanding Blog ), among others.

Out scribe Roxane Gay was among those who wrote Black Panther: World of Wakanda.

Logo will exclusively air the ceremony on Wed., April 18, at 7 p.m. CT.

Other winners ( in areas such as music ) will be announced at the GLAAD Media Awards New York on May 5.
