'Kids Are All Right,' 'Burlesque,' 'Glee' Among GLAAD Media Awards Nominees
Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right and the features Burlesque, I Love You Phillip Morris and Easy A, along with the series True Blood, Glee and Modern Family, were among the nominees revealed Wednesday by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation for its 22nd annual GLAAD Media Awards. The rock band Scissor Sisters and The Oprah Winfrey Show's episode with Ricky Martin also made GLAAD's list, which included 114 nominees in 23 English-language categories, and 33 Spanish-language nominees in nine categories.
"This year's nominees represent some of the images and stories at the root of the growing acceptance of our community and support for our equality," GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios said. "They also have created a benchmark for inclusion of our community that other media outlets should look to."
The GLAAD Media Awards, which recognize and honor media for their fair and inclusive representations of the gay community, will take place March 19 in New York; April 16 in Los Angeles; and on May 14 in San Francisco.
