Winners of the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards were announced in a ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 12, and the list includes Jennifer Lopez, "Orange is the New Black" star Laverne Cox and more.
Rita Moreno, who is likely best known for her Oscar-winning role as Anita in the 1961 musical "West Side Story," presented Lopez with the Vanguard Award, which is presented to individuals in the medial who have increased visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community through their work.

In August 2011, Matt Grant from ABC dating show "The Bachelor" and Juan Barbieri and Jonathan Novack from "The Bachelorette," as well as members from the male erotic dance company Chippendales showed their love for Jennifer Lopez, or rather, her wax figure at the Madame Tussauds museums in Hollywood and in Las Vegas, weeks after she and husband Marc Anthony announced their split.
"J-Lo has always been one of our most popular figures but she's been getting even more attention since the news of her single status," Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, said in statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. "We decided to invite former TV Bachelors living in the area to get up close with J-Lo."

Lopez, 44, appeared at the event, held in Beverly Hills, in a long-sleeve black sheer dress by Zuhair Murad. The dress also featured a cobalt-blue beading branch pattern. During the ceremony she received the Vanguard Award, which recognizes efforts to increase visibility and understanding of the gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender community.
Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart attended the grand opening of restaurant Planet Dailies and its cocktail lounge Mixology 101 in Los Angeles on April 5, 2012. The event included a screening of the "American Idol" judge's new music video, "Dance Again," which features Smart.
The venues are the brainchild of Robert Earl, who also founded Planet Hollywood International. He also attended the opening, as did "American Idol" finalist Pia Toscano, singer Cee Lo Green of NBC's "The Voice," TV personality Mario Lopez and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Lisa Vanderpump, who recently received a Bravo spin-off called "SUR," named after her own Hollywood restaurant and lounge. Check out photos from the event.
Jennifer Lopez cut the ribbon at the opening of the first Viva Movil flagship store in Brooklyn, New York, on July 26.
Lopez founded the new Verizon Wireless premium retail chain, which is set to open more stores around the country. The 44-year-old appeared at the grand opening wearing a white dress by Elie Saab and Tom Ford shoes.
Jennifer Lopez says she has never had plastic surgery, following a tweet from a London-based cosmetic surgeon.
Dr. Ayham Al-Ayoubi had posted on his Twitter page a picture that has been circulating online for the past five years -- half of it shows a 2008 photo of the 44-year-old singer, actress and "American Idol" co-judge and the other half shows a woman resembling Lopez, sans makeup. He said: "These before and after pics of @JLo show many signs of #plasticsurgery - naturally pretty but now looks amazing."
Although Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have moved on with new loves, the former couple will reportedly talk candidly about their failed marriage on the premiere of their reality talent show "Q'Viva: The Chosen."
A preview of the premiere, which will air on January 28 on Univision, was screened for critics recently and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the two are seen talking about their relationship and how they're "going to be in each other's lives."
