Christopher Plummer, “Modern Family” Take Home SAG Awards
January 30, 2012 by HRC staff
The following post comes from HRC Digital Media Intern Eric Cameron:
LGBT-themed movies and TV shows continue to rake in the honors at award shows this season, as film veteran Christopher Plummer and the entire cast of “Modern Family” were among the big winners at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles.
Plummer took home the supporting actor award for his performance in “Beginners.” He plays Hal, a 75-year-old widower coming out of the closet to his son (Ewan McGregor). Director Mike Mills based much of the story on his own relationship with his late father.
And for the second year in a row, the cast of “Modern Family” earned top honors for their performances as a comedy ensemble. The popular show – now in its third season – has been lauded by GLAAD for advancing the portrayal of gays and lesbians in the media.
Congratulations to all of last night’s winners!
