Golden Globes 2023: Ryan Murphy says his mission is to make heroes of 'invisible, unloved'

Los Angeles, Jan 11 (SocialNews.XYZ) Prolific TV producer Ryan Murphy accepted the Carol Burnett Award at the Golden Globes on Tuesday night, paying tribute to many of the people he has worked with in front of and behind the screen.

Murphy ran through some of the highlights of his career -- MJ Rodriguez becoming the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe, seeing 'Pose' star Billy Porter, who introduced him, wearing a black tuxedo gown on the Oscars red carpet, and working with actors such as Niecy Nash, Matt Bomer and Jeremy Pope, who were able to present their true selves on screen, reports 'Variety'.


"When I was a young person at home in the '70s watching 'The Carol Burnett Show', I never ever saw a person like me getting an award or even being a character on a TV show. It's hard being an LGBTQ kid in America. In fact, all over the world, then and now. And I have one word for you, Florida.

"You are often told you will have to hide your light to survive," Murphy continued. "But for those kids watching, tonight I offer up MJ and Billy and Niecy and Matt and Jeremy as examples of possibility. My mission was to take the invisible, the unloved, and make them the heroes I long to see but never did in pop culture."

Porter introduced Murphy, saying "I spent many a year teetering on the precipice of obscurity. It was you, Ryan, and your fearless art that spoke to me, comforted me, and let me know that if I could just hold on a little while longer, my time would come. Fast forward to 16 years later -- I got the call for a ground-breaking series called 'Pose'.

"The 163rd meeting with Ryan turned out to be the singular yes our community needed to finally have our stories, our lives, our souls honored," Porter said.

The Carol Burnett Award was created in 2018 as the television equivalent of the HFPA's Cecil B. DeMille Award, which has honored film stars since 1952. Murphy is the fourth winner following Norman Lear, Ellen DeGeneres and Burnett herself, who was presented the award in 2019.
