Special kudos to Moore, Mulally, Jones, Waters, Barker

GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, announced the nominees of its 15th annual Media Awards today, a list that includes Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and HBO’s “Angels in America.”

A special award will be presented to Julianne Moore, Megan Mulally, Cherry Jones (“What Makes a Family”), John Waters and Clive Barker (“Sacrament,” “Abarat”) for their “commitment to gay and lesbian visibility and equality.”

The Media Award honors fair and accurate portrayals of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community in the media.

Some of the nominees for film and television include “Under the Tuscan Sun,” “Bend It Like Beckham,” ESPN’s “Playmakers” and Showtime’s “A Boy Named Sue.” GLAAD will also honor theatrical performances in New York and Los Angeles such as “Flesh and Blood,” “I Am My Own Wife,” “Autumn Canticle” and “Body of Faith.”

GLAAD, founded in 1985, will host three separate awards kudocasts in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the spring.
