Orange Is the New Black, Elementary and the film Philomena were among the winners at the second evening of the GLAAD Media Awards, which took place Saturday in New York City.
Rita Moreno will star opposite Natasha Lyonne in NBC's comedy pilot from Amy Poehler, Deadline reports.
NBC has learned its lesson.
Last season, after a strong fall powered by The Voice and Revolution, NBC not only kept the shows off the air until March 2013, but chose not to launch any midseason series in January, cuing up a huge collapse.
"Essentially the momentum from last fall fell away. This year things are different," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday at the network's Television Critics Association winter previews. "Of course, we've got the Olympics for 18 nights, but I also think we've also gotten smarter about how we've scheduled January and February. We didn't take The Blacklist off the air in January. ... Last Monday's episode ... saw a 60 percent jump in the demo."

Orange Is the New Black star Michelle Hurst was kept in a medically-induced coma for more than two weeks after being involved in a car accident over the holidays, and is now recovering, according to some of her castmates.
Though Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) and Taystee (Danielle Brooks) are often cited as Orange Is the New Black's biggest scene stealers, we hold a special place in our heart for Lorna Morello (Yael Stone).There's just something about the delusional van driver and her bizarre (Boston? Brooklyn?) accent that is completely endearing, even when she's insisting on the validity of "knifes" as a word.
But beyond these few things, we barely know Morello. Thankfully, Stone says that will change when the second season premieres on Netflix in 2014. "For all of the characters, there really is a flowering of detail. So that's a really exciting thing that's happening. We're learning a lot of little secrets and I think people will enjoy it," Stone tells TVGuide.com.
