The Imitation Game won the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Film for its portrayal of gay World War II codebreaker Alan Turing. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role alongside Keira Knightley.
Alan Turing is often consider the inventor of modern computing. He was convicted of ‘gross indecency’ in 1952 after having sex with a man. The resulting punishment was chemical castration. Turing was barred from working for GCHQ, and eventually committed suicide.
The award was collected by screenwriter Graham Moore and producer Ido Ostrowsky.
