GLAAD announced the nominees for its 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which honors the best depictions of the LGBT community in entertainment. The organization recognizes everything from musicians to movies and television and even comic books.
The nominees for Outstanding Film - Wide Release include two movies nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, Philomena and Dallas Buyers Club. The other nominees include the French epic Blue is the Warmest Color, Kill Your Darlings with Daniel Radcliffe and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
In the TV categories, Shameless; Orphan Black; The Fosters; Grey’s Anatomy; and Pretty Little Liars were nominated in the top Drama category. Netflix’s Orange is the New Black secured a nomination for Comedy series, along with Glee; Brooklyn Nine-Nine; Modern Family; and Please Like Me. Days of Our Lives will win Outstanding Daytime Drama by default, since it was the only nominee.
Elton John’s The Diving Board is up for Outstanding Music Artist. Lady Gaga’s Artpop; Modern Vampires of the City by Vampire Weekend; Goldfrapp’s Tales of Us; and Tegan and Sara’s Heartthrob are the other nominees.
You can check out the rest of the nominees at GLAAD.org. The awards are handed out in ceremonies on both coasts. The Los Angeles ceremony is set for April 14 at the Beverly Hilton, while the New York event is not until May 3 at the Waldorf Astoria.
