Other big winners included Lee Daniels, the gay director of ‘Precious: Based on the Novel Push’ by Sapphire, who revealed that he had overcome huge issues with his sexuality since his he was young.

He said: “I come from a world where I was beaten daily by my dad because of my gayness. I had bullies and I wanted to kill myself.”
