It seemed as if Shondaland relocated to the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday night for the GLAAD Awards. Shonda Rhimes had a fun night out with Scandal star Kerry Washington and Viola Davis along with other cast members from How to Get Away with Murder. Kerry, who received the Vanguard Award, gave a moving speech to a crowd that included Zoe Saldana and husband Marco Perego as well as Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
Midway through her speech, she stated: “There is so much power in storytelling, and there is enormous power in inclusive storytelling, in inclusive representations. That is why the work of GLAAD is so important. We need more LGBT representation in the media. We need more LGBT characters and more LGBT storytelling. We need more diverse LGBT representations. And by that, I mean lots of different kinds of LGBT people living all different kinds of lives. And this is big—we need more employment of LGBT people in front of and behind the camera.”
