Kudos to air on new channel Logo

See complete list of nominees

“Kinsey,” “Kevin Hill” and “Survivor: Vanuatu” are among the nominees for the 16th Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards.

Event will be televised for the first time, airing in the fall on MTV’s new cable channel, Logo. Award ceremonies will be held March 28 at New York’s Marriott Marquis, April 30 at L.A.’s Kodak Theater and June 11 in San Francisco at the Westin St. Francis.

GLAAD Awards reward media that offer “fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.” There are 141 nominees in 37 media categories including film, TV drama series, TV journalism, newspaper columnist, music artist, print and electronic advertising and even comicbooks.

CBS led the broadcast nets with eight noms, including three in the individual episode category, which honors a show that doesn’t have a regular gay character. Showtime topped the cable networks with five noms, with “Queer as Folk” and “The L Word” both contenders in the drama series category.

“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” will receive special recognition for its “smart, incisive, devastatingly funny coverage” of gay rights issues and for its “hilarious skewing” of the antigay agenda of the religious right.
