For the first time in nearly a decade, the show will be televised.
The 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards nominees were announced in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Among the nominees are films Carol and The Danish Girl, Golden Globe nominee Grandma; Film Independent Spirit Award nominees Appropriate Behavior and Tangerine; Fox’s Empire and Netflix’s Sense8, Master of None, Orange Is the New Black, and Grace and Frankie.
“For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward,” Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD CEO and president said in a statement. “This year’s nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences’ understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world.”
The awards are to recognize and honor media for their fair and accurate representations of the LGBT community and lives, GLADD said.
The organization said there were 101 nominees announced in 20 English-language categories and 46 Spanish-language nominees in 11 categories.
Two GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held, one in Los Angeles on April 2 at The Beverly Hilton and the other in New York on May 14 at the Waldorf Astoria.
In addition, this is the first time in nearly a decade that the awards will be televised on Logo in a one-hour special premiering in April.
