‘Carol,’ ‘Danish Girl,’ ‘Empire’ Nab GLAAD Media Awards Nominations

Lesbian romance “Carol,” transgender drama “The Danish Girl,” music series “Empire” and comedy “Master of None” are among the films and shows that have nabbed nominations for the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards.

The nods, announced on Wednesday morning, also include the wide release pics “Dope,” “Freeheld” and “Grandma.” Outstanding film nominations also went out to five movies in limited release, including “Tangerine,” which follows two transgender prostitutes.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor television, film and journalism that accurately, fairly and inclusively represents the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. The LGBT advocacy group announced 101 nominees in 20 English-language categories and 46 nominees in 11 Spanish-language categories.

Variety is up for outstanding magazine overall coverage alongside The Advocate, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen and Time. Variety devoted a special issue on marriage equality in June after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. Other covers have focused on transgender Hollywood, as well as films covering LGBT issues, such as “Carol” and “The Danish Girl.”

On the TV side, the drama series nominees are The CW’s “Arrow,” Starz’s “Black Sails,” Fox’s “Empire,” ABC Family’s “The Fosters,” BBC America’s “Orphan Black,” Netflix’s “Sens8,” Showtime’s “Shameless,” and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How to Get Away With Murder” and “Nashville.”

In comedy, GLAAD nominated Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” MTV’s “Faking It,” HBO’s “Looking,” ABC’s “Modern Family,” Amazon’s “Transparent,” PBS’ “Vicious,” Pivot’s “Please Like Me,” and Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie,” “Master of None” and “Orange Is the New Black.”

“How to Get Away With Murder” and “Transparent” won the TV prizes last year.

Reality programs up for an award are E!’s “I Am Cait,” TLC’s “I Am Jazz,” Discovery Life’s “New Girls on the Block,” Oxygen’s “The Prancing Elites Project” and Fuse’s “Transcendent.”

The five nominees for outstanding music artist include Miley Cyrus  and Adam Lambert, as well as Ricky Martin in a Spanish-language category. TV, newspaper, magazine and digital journalism honorees were also announced.

“For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward,” said GLAAD CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis. “This year’s nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences’ understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world.”

The 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards will air on Logo in April. The ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 2 at the Beverly Hilton, and in New York City on May 14 at the Waldorf Astoria New York.
