AWARDS SEASON

Happy Endings, Beginners, Priscilla And More Nominated For GLAAD Media Awards

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has announced the nominees for the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards—and it’s a solid bunch.Three heavy-odds Oscar contenders made the wide-release film category: Beginners, for Christopher Plummer’s portrayal of an older gay man’s coming out ; J. Edgar, in which Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer played two very close male friends; and Albert Nobbs, in which Glenn Close and Janet McTeer play Victorian women who adopt male identities.

For limited-release films, critical hits Weekend, Pariah, Tomboy, Gun Hill Road, and Circumstance all made the shortlist.

TV shows that got the nod include Glee, Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family and Happy Ending, while Hot in Cleveland, Late Show with David Letterman and NCIS got mentions for individual episodes.

There was even a comic-book category, with nominees including The Avengers, Batwoman, X-Factor and Veronica Presents: Kevin Keller, devoted to Archie Comics’ new out gay character.

Check out the full list of categories and nominees here. The GLAAD Media Awards will take place in New York City (March 24), Los Angeles (April 21) and San Francisco (June 2)
