"Brothers & Sisters" Named Outstanding Drama Series at GLAAD Media Awards
It was a truly great night for the ABC television network at Saturday night's GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. In addition to honors for "Grey's Anatomy" and "Ugly Betty" the network's must-see family drama "Brothers & Sisters" was also honored for its fair, accurate and inclusive representation of gay people.
The drama revolves around the lives and loves of five (make that six now) siblings of the Walker family, one of whom (Kevin played by Welsh actor Matthew Rhys) happens to be a gay man.
Executive Producer Jon Robin Baitz and actor Matthew Rhys, with co-stars Dave Annable, Balthazar Getty, Rachel Giffiths, Ron Rifkin and Patricia Wettig went on stage to accept the award.
"What an honor," said Baitz. "I don't know how you do a show about five children and not have one of them be gay."
