The second wave of 2019 GLAAD Media Awards were handed out Saturday night in New York, where FX’s Pose took home the gold for Outstanding Drama Series.

Fellow Ryan Murphy production The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story was triumphant in the Outstanding TV Movie or Limited Series category, while Netflix’s Elite — one of TVLine’s Peak TV Treasures — tied for TV’s top Spanish-language program.

The eligibility period covered Jan. 1, 2018 through Dec. 31, 2018. The awards recognize media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
