• GLAAD awards. Marriot Marquis, 1535 Broadway, nr. 45th St., 8:30 p.m. Actually, the night starts with cocktails at 5:30 and dinner at 7:30, which means some of the guests — including Julianne Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg, Cynthia Nixon, and, oddly, Hilary Duff — should be pretty sauced by the time Tom Ford and Patti LaBelle are honored. Incidentally, Whoopi Goldberg is one of twelve people to have won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony. Try and name the others — it’s like the gay equivalent of knowing all the players who’ve rushed for 2,000 yards in a season.
• Screening of The Lookout. Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick St., nr. Canal St., 7:30 p.m. Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeff Daniels, Isla Fisher, and Carla Gugino will be on hand. The movie’s tagline is “whoever has the money has the power”; test the producers’ commitment to that rule by showing up with a bag of gold and demanding they move the screening to a barge floating off the coast of Liberia.
