LGBT folks took home some of the top prizes at this week’s People’s Choice Awards.

Ellen DeGeneres was honored for the 13th time as America’s Favorite Daytime Talk Show Host, continuing to prove that when the ladies at One Million Moms claim the comedian “offend[s] a huge majority” of American consumers, they’re wrong.

DeGeneres thanked Melissa Etheridge, Jane Lynch, Wanda Sykes and the rest of “her team” in her acceptance speech.

Glee star Chris Colfer won the award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor, while Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler’s gay-themed comedy TheNew Normal won Favorite New TV Comedy.

Check out a few of the acceptance speeches below.
