Charlize Theron was honored with a top prize from the country's leading gay organization that monitors the media. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation presented its Vanguard Award to Theron at Saturday's 17th annual GLAAD Media Awards for increasing "visibility and understanding in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community." "This is very surreal for me because two years ago, I stood right here and won my Oscar for 'Monster,'" Theron said in ceremonies at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. AP reports.
