The 16th annual GLAM Awards warmed up an otherwise bitter cold winter evening on January 13.

Bianca Del Rio and Michael Musto hosted the raunchy nigh at BPM, presented by Cherry Jubilee, that celebrated the best in New York City nightlife. The evening’s event, which kicked off with an elaborate “Wizard of Oz” tribute, also included performances by Chelsea Piers, Marty Thomas and the Divas, and recording artist Kelly King.

More than 25 awards were handed out throughout the evening, including the Living Legend lifetime achievement award to veteran drag queen Sweetie, Breakthrough Performer to Sutton Lee Seymour, Best Promoter to Justin Luke, and Best Bar Night to Holly Dae and the cast of “Queen.”

Bob the Drag Queen was the big winner of the night, garnering awards for Best Duo, with Pixie Aventura, and Best Hostess, along with the prize for Best Comedy Performer — originally awarded to Bianca Del Rio, who handed it over to Bob, saying “That bitch has been working — [she’s] talented and fucking smart. She deserves this.”

The “RuPaul's Drag Race” winner did accept the night’s top prize, Entertainer of the Year. During her acceptance speech, the rarely humble Bianca urged her fellow nightlifers to “look to the people who came before you, not the people who came on your chest.”
