The inimitable Kathy Griffin basked in the love and adulation of "her gays" when her Bravo series My Life on the D-List won Outstanding Reality Show at the 19th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which were presented in Hollywood over the weekend.

Ever fearless, Griffin took the opportunity to needle American Idol host Ryan Seacrest at the event, with a little help from her mom Maggie. According to People.com, Griffin invited her mother to join her onstage, then asked, "Mom, who's the gayest-looking person in the room tonight?"

"Is Ryan Seacrest here?" her mother replied.

Aside from Griffin's My Life on the D-List, which launches a new season on June 12, Ugly Betty and Brothers & Sisters took home major GLAAD Awards, winning Outstanding TV Comedy Series and Outstanding TV Drama Series, respectively.

Ellen DeGeneres had the honor of presenting Janet Jackson with the Vanguard Award, given to media figures that have worked to increase LGBT visibility.

Not to be nasty, but I would also given that honor to Griffin.
