Country hall of fame turns 50

NASHVILLE — The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville has turned 50.

The Tennessean reported the museum celebrated the anniversary Saturday with $1.50 admission, the same price as the museum’s opening day in 1967.

Live music and cupcakes were served up in the museum’s conservatory. Museum CEO Kyle Young was presented with a commemorative plaque in the shape of a giant record album.

Young started as a ticket taker 41 years ago at the museum’s original location. He said “the main ingredient for our success is the very music we exist to uphold.”

‘Transparent,’ ‘Moonlight’ win at gLAAD Awards

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Oscar winner “Moonlight” has won again, taking best film at the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Barry Jenkins’ comingof-age portrait was honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation at the awards held Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The group nominated only two films for the award, which it said reflected the dearth of LGBTQ story lines in Hollywood. The other nominee was “Star Trek Beyond.”

Jill Soloway’s “Transparent” won for outstanding comedy series. Best drama series went to the Freeform fantasy “Shadowhunters.”

Patricia Arquette was honored with the Vanguard Award and dedicated it to her late transgender sister, Alexis Arquette.

The awards honor “fair, accurate and inclusive representations” of the LGBTQ community.
