ROCKY HORROR, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND Among GLAAD Media Award Nominees; Full List

ROCKY HORROR, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND Among GLAAD Media Award Nominees; Full ListGLAAD, the world's LGBTQ media advocacy organization, announced today the nominees for the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, presented by Delta Air Lines, Hilton, Ketel One Vodka, Liberty Mutual Insurance, and Wells Fargo. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD's work to accelerate acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

Among the nominees: Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Moonlight; Film Independent Spirit Award-nominees Other People and Spa Night; ABC's THE REAL O'NEALS and Black-ish; The CW's CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND and Supergirl; Netflix's The OA, Grace and Frankie, Black Mirror, and Easy; Amazon's TRANSPARENT and One Mississippi; Starz's Survivor's Remorse; USA Network's Eyewitness; Cartoon Network's Steven Universe; Nickelodeon's The Loud House; Oxygen's Strut; HBO's The Trans List; The Ellen DeGeneres Show; NewYorker.com, and Tampa Bay Times for interviews with Orlando shooting survivors; ESPN's E:60 and SC Featured; Brandy Clark for her Grammy-nominated Big Day in a Small Town album; and Frank Ocean for his album Blonde.

For the first time, GLAAD expanded the Outstanding Music Artist and Outstanding Comic Book categories from five nominees to a maximum of 10 nominees each. Disappointingly - but reflective of the mainstream film industry's dearth of LGBTQ-inclusive storylines - Outstanding Film - Wide Release counts the fewest number of nominees (two) since 2003.

"For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have set the bar for media representations of LGBTQ people," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "At a time when progress is at a critical juncture, it is imperative that Hollywood tell more LGBTQ stories that reflect the community's rich diversity - and build understanding that brings all communities closer together. This year's nominees have created images and storylines that challenge misconceptions and broaden understanding, accelerating acceptance and equality for LGBTQ people across the globe."

Spanish-language nominees include Kany García, the Grammy-nominated singer who came out as a lesbian in 2016, for her new album Limonada. Also nominated was Univision's Aquí y Ahora, which received nominations for its interviews with Xander, the transgender son of Venezuelan pop star Karina Moreno; and with transgender advocate Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen and his supportive mom, U.S. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Univision's AL PUNTO earned a nomination for its interview with Gina Parody, Colombia's now-former Education Minister who is a lesbian.

CNN en Español's Conclusiones picked up a nomination for its segment on the Orlando shooting at Pulse Nightclub and its impact on Latinx LGBTQ communities. Local affiliate stations continue to garner nominations, including WZDC-Telemundo 25 for its two-part profile of a Nicaraguan mom supporting her transgender daughter. This year, there were no nominations in Outstanding Novela, reflecting the dire need for more inclusive representation in Spanish-language media's most popular entertainment format.

GLAAD announced 115 nominees in 21 English-language categories and 41 Spanish-language nominees in 11 categories. In the English-language categories, cable networks earned 31 nominations, and broadcast networks garnered 17 nominations. Streaming services received seven nominations. Netflix picked up four nominations, including its second for Grace and Frankie; and first-time nominations for The OA, Black Mirror, and Easy. Amazon received its third nomination for Transparent, and a first-time nomination for One Mississippi. Seeso, NBCUniversal's new streaming comedy channel, received its first-ever nomination for Take My Wife.
