One day after stars Mj Rodriguez and Angelica Ross were snubbed by the Television Academy in major Emmy categories, FX's groundbreaking queer TV series Pose has won big at the GLAAD Media Awards.

The Ryan Murphy-created project scored top honors in the Outstanding Drama Series category at the LGBTQ media advocacy group's digital awards ceremony Thursday night, following critical and audience acclaim for the series' portrayal of queer and transgender people of color navigating the ballroom scene across early-'90s New York City.

Opposite Pose, Pop's Schitt's Creek — which features a prominent queer storyline involving creator-star Dan Levy — took the Outstanding Comedy Series award, while Olivia Wilde's 2019 coming-of-age comedy Booksmart won for Outstanding Wide Release Film.

Elsewhere, the "Two Doors Down" installment of Dolly Parton's Netflix series Heartstrings was honored in the Individual Episode category; Transparent's musical finale was deemed Outstanding TV Movie; Lil Nas X took the Outstanding Music Artist prize, and MTV's Are You the One? beat out stiff competition from two-time category winner RuPaul's Drag Race to win Outstanding Reality Program.

The GLAAD Media Awards' 31st ceremony took place digitally, and featured appearances by Kandi Burruss, Cara Delevingne, Jennifer Garner, Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Demi Lovato, Peppermint, Lena Waithe, and the cast and producers of several recognized projects, including Pose, Schitt's Creek, and more. Performers at the ceremony included Chloe x Halle (featuring Drag Race stars Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Mayhem Miller, and Naomi Smalls) and Shea Diamond.
