Matt Bomer presents award to Ryan Murphy and The New Normal at the #glaadawards
“Television has the unique capacity to bring subjects we may not be comfortable with or which may seem taboo directly into our living room on a week-to-week basis. When these topics are grounded in compassion, humor and understanding it can spark a conversation and not always, but sometimes, that conversation can dissolve ignorance,” Bomer said. “In the same vein as Norman Lear before him, Ryan Murphy has taken hot button issues and started conversations in homes across the country.”

“Matt just looked at Andrew and me and said, ‘It’s so amazing that we’ve gotten to a point where we can have a major TV show that’s centered on an openly gay couple, and that I can take part in it,’” Bartha recalls. “It’s moments like that which make me proud that we’re able to add another drop in the bucket.”

Best Performance: Matt Bomer, hands down. No question. It’s just wrong to be as pretty as he is and to have the comic timing and charm that oozes out of him.
