2012 GLAAD Awards Nominees

Written by 



One knows from now on the GLAAD Media Awards nominees. So which one will be the most representative of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the media?

One finds among these nominated certain films which had already been nominated for the Golden Globe Awards (see articles: LGBT Golden Globe Awards Nominations and LGBT Golden Globe Awards) and are nominated for Outstanding Film-Wide Release:

Albert Nobbs
J. Edgar

Others more independent movies are in competition in the category of Outstanding Film - Limited Release:

Gun Hill Road

I just saw Tomboy and I know a little bit about Pariah and I like the way in which both are made. I would like that at least one of both wins.

Outstanding Drama Series:
Grey's Anatomy
Pretty Little Liars
Torchwood: Miracle Day

Which would be your favorite drama series? I like Grey's anatomy but it is a little too much a heteronormativity to receive a prize representing the community, I like the series but on the whole, not only for the lesbian couple. Same thing for Shameless. I would choose Pretty Little Liars and you?

Outstanding Comedy Series:
Exes and Ohs
Happy Endings
Modern Family
The Big C

Among nominees, there are also some LGBT episodes of series like NCIS for the episode "Recruited" or of TV films, miniseries like Cinema Truth and documentary listed below:

Becoming Chaz OWN: Oprah Winfrey
The Strange History of Don't Ask, Don't Tell
The World's Worst Place to be Gay?
Two Spirits
We Were Here

What is your best Outstanding Reality Program?

Dancing with the Stars
Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys
The Glee Project
The Real L Word
The Voice

Finally, among the categories which you could like, the Outstanding Music Artist:

Beverly McClellan, Fear Nothing
Girl in a Coma, Exits & All the Rest
Hunx and His Punx, Too Young to Be in Love
Lady Gaga, Born This Way
MEN, Talk About Body
