Neil Patrick Harris has won AfterElton.com's Gay Man of the Decade contest. The actor took 61% of the vote in the online poll that went viral once he and actor John Barrowman started a Twitter battle over the title. Various celebrities like Neil Gaimon, Alyssa Milano, Hal Sparks, Kevin Smith, and Felicia Day endorsed their favorite nominee, and I threw my weight
under behind Neil Patrick Harris.
Even though AfterElton highlighted my endorsement and scads of you tweeted on NPH's behalf at my request (okay, three of you did), when it came time to give an acceptance speech, Neil snubbed me once again.
Huzzah! At last, I have risen atop John Barrowman! While excited, I must admit that I was worried he wouldn't like it. And yes, it may have been uncomfortable at first, but I soon saw that he was enjoying himself and, therefore, so did I. Good times. A fine way to start Aught Ten.
Joshing aside, I was pretty amazed at how this took on a life of it's own. Big thanks to everyone who threw a vote my way, but even bigger thanks to those who rallied their legions of fans on my behalf. That was very cool. (Jimmy Fallon? Totally unsolicited? How nice was that?!?) Thanks also to Michael and the gang at AfterElton.com, who seem to be the real winners. And to Twitter. My Twitter followers rock.
