NotesEdit

  1. ^ The 19th GLAAD Media Awards was originally scheduled to air on 5 June 2008 at 9:30 pm on Arena.[69] This was then later changed to 17 July at 8:30 pm.[70] However, due to fact that the US production was unable to get international clearance for music rights, Arena was unable to broadcast the ceremony.[71]
