GLAAD Announces Noms for 23rd Annual Media Awards

“Albert Nobbs,” “Beginners” and “J. Edgar” are the three wide studio releases up for an outstanding film award at the 23rd annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards, GLAAD announced Thursday.

“As media continue to tell new stories about LGBT people and families, a majority of Americans now support full equality of LGBT Americans,” said Mike Thompson, GLAAD’s acting president. “This year’s nominees enlighten and entertain, while spotlighting the Jedgardiversity of our community. Audiences expect to see their own worlds reflected in media, and today more than ever, those include the lives of LGBT people. Viewers know that LGBT characters and stories are simply natural extensions of, and glimpses into, their own experiences from across America.”

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in New York on March 24 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square; in Los Angeles on April 21 at the Westin Bonaventure; and in San Francisco on June 2 at San Francisco Marriott Marquis.  Special honorees for each city will be announced in the coming weeks.
