The GLAAD Media Award Nominations Are In…

Burlesque is Nominated For Outstanding Film, Thanks to a Great Performance by Stanley Tucci.

The GLAAD Media Awards is one of the most highly regarded social events of the season, as well as an important and effective way to recognize and honor those media outlets for covering or portraying outstanding images of the LGBT community. From movies to television and from magazine articles to blogs, LGBT stories and characters are becoming more and more engrained in mainstream society.

The nominations are decided on by a committee, who come up with those in the media who go above and beyond the stereotype and delve deep into the LGBT condition and make the world a more inclusive place for LGBT people.

“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,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “They also have created a benchmark for inclusion of our community that other media outlets should look to. As GLAAD celebrates twenty-five years of working with the media, we are proud to recognize this year’s nominees and we challenge the industry to share more stories that reflect the diversity of our community and the challenges that gay and transgender people face.”
