GLAAD announces nominees for 22nd annual Media Awards

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the nation's LGBT media advocacy and anti-defamation organization, announced January 20 the nominees for its 22nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

By recognizing and honoring media for outstanding images of the LGBT community, the GLAAD Media Awards serve as a benchmark for the media industry and complement GLAAD's work to bring LGBT images and stories to Americans.

Among the nominees: Lisa Cholodenko's Golden Globe-nominated film The Kids Are All Right; I Love You Phillip Morris, starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor; Howl, starring James Franco; the summer hit film Easy A; HBO's acclaimed drama True Blood; Fox's hit show Glee; ABC's hit comedy Modern Family; NBC's hit sitcom 30 Rock; Prodigal Sons, a documentary about a Transgender woman and her family; season eight of Project Runway; The Oprah Winfrey Show for Ricky Martin's first televised interview since he came out; MSNBC's interview with Fort Worth City Council member Joel Burns; CNN's Anderson Cooper 360; Essence.com's Bridal Bliss: Aisha and Danielle; the Scissor Sisters; Chely Wright; and Spanish-language nominees Levántate, Aquí y Ahora, Caso Cerrado, Casos de Familia, and openly Gay music artists Christian Chávez and Fedro.

Openly Gay Christian Chavez and Fedro performed at Neighbours Nightclub in Seattle in 2010. The two Latin artists - who appeared in Seattle Gay News interviews - have made headlines and scored number-one hits in their native Mexico.

In 2011, the GLAAD Media Awards will also celebrate GLAAD's 25th anniversary year, looking back at a quarter-century of work building acceptance and advancing equality through LGBT images in the media.

'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 25 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.'

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in New York on March 19 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, in San Francisco on May 14 at San Francisco Marriott Marquis, and in Los Angeles (details to be announced).

GLAAD announced 114 nominees in 23 English-language categories, and 33 Spanish-language nominees in nine categories. In the English-language categories, cable networks earned 22 nominations, while broadcast networks garnered 11 nominations.

This year, GLAAD introduced a new category to recognize independent blogs, in recognition of the growing role of online media in shaping today's culture. The first nominees in this category are The Bilerico Project, Blabbeando, Joe. My. God., Pam's House Blend, and Rod 2.0.

Special honorees for each city will be announced in the coming weeks.

A complete list of English-language nominees is available at www.glaad.org/mediaawards/22/nominees.

A complete list of Spanish-language nominees is available at www.glaad.org/mediaawards/22/nominees/spanish.

Additional facts and figures about this year's 147 nominees are available at www.glaad.org/mediaawards/22/factsandfigures.

The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives.

The 22nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards nominees were published, released, or broadcast between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010. Nearly 1,000 media projects were considered by over 85 volunteers serving on seven nominating juries. Each year, the GLAAD Media Awards in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco bring together more than 5,000 supporters to raise nearly $3.5 million for the organization's work.

GLAAD is dedicated to promoting and ensuring fair, accurate and inclusive representation of people and events in the media as a means of eliminating homophobia and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. For more information, please visit www.glaad.org.
