The SHINE Awards—2000 Winners
The 2000 SHINE Awards were held on October 25th at the Skirball Cultural Center. Host Brad Sherwood of Whose Line is It Anyway fame started the evening with an improv skit that had the audience in stitches. This year The Media Project decided to take a look at some sexual health media milestones television has concord thus far, including the first: miscarriage, mention of masturbation, legal abortion, mention of the pill, condom sighting, series episode featuring a lesbian, gay series regular, series regular with HIV, and main character to come out.
The evening was a great success in part due to our wonderful presenters: Grammy winner and star of Moesha, Brandy and her co-star/brother Ray J., the legendary Buddy Hackett, Mel Harris of thirtysomething. and Something So Right, Diane Delano of Popular, Lainie Kazan, Alan Rachins & Mimi Kennedy of Dharma & Greg, Loveline host, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Chris Mulkey of our Drama winner, Any Day Now, Susanna Thompson from Once and Again, Kerr Smith who plays Jack McPhee on our Special Writers Award winner Dawson's Creek, seven time Emmy nominated, Doris Roberts of Everybody Loves Raymond, John Spencer & Dule' Hill from The West Wing, the famed Cagney & Lacey team Tyne Daly & Sharon Gless were reunited to present our Informational/Documentary category, and Topher Grace & Laura Prepon of That ‘70's Show accepted their show's Series Storyline award.
