'Milk' among GLAAD nominees

'Brothers & Sisters,' 'L Word' competing in TV categories

"Milk" picked up another nomination Wednesday as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced nominees for its 20th annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Best picture Oscar nominee "Milk," from Focus, was included in GLAAD's outstanding film in wide release category, where it will compete with Miramax's "Brideshead Revisted," Columbia's "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," Warners' "RocknRolla" and the Weinstein Co.'s "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

Among television contenders, the nominees for outstanding drama series are ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," Showtime's "The L Word," The N's "South of Nowhere," BBC America's "Torchwood" and HBO's "True Blood."

The comedy series nominees are ABC's "Desperate Housewives," ABC Family's "Greek," the CW's "Reaper," BBC America's "Skins" and ABC's "Ugly Betty."

The awards honoring media representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in 26 English-language and 15 Spanish-language categories. They will be presented at a series of dinners: March 28 at the Marriott Marquis in New York, April 18 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and May 9 at the Hilton San Francisco.

In New York, special honorees will include Tyra Banks, set to receive the Excellence in Media Award, and Suze Orman, receiving the Vito Russo Award. Honorees for Los Angeles and San Francisco will be announced later.

Special recognition awards will be presented to "The Laramie Project, 10 Years Later: The Lasting Legacy of Matthew Shepard," a two-hour documentary broadcast on Sirius XM Radio, and to Lucia Mendez, an actress and singer who campaigned to bring awareness to the issue of LGBT teen suicide.

A complete list of nominees is available on the next page.
