‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ ‘The Favourite’ Among GLAAD Media Award Nominees

Films like “Crazy Rich Asians” and “The Favourite,” as well as artists such as Troye Sivan are among the nominees for the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards.

The awards, handed out by the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, recognizes media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Mj Rodriguez of “Pose” and Nico Santos from “Crazy Rich Asians” announced the nominees on Friday via a live-stream hosted from Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival.

Other nominees include FX’s “Pose,” Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and artists Janelle Monae and Hayley Kiyoko, as well as media personalities Don Lemon, Stephen Colbert, and Samantha Bee. Variety is up for an nomination as well for overall magazine coverage, alongside Billboard, Ebony, Entertainment Weekly, and GQ.

Variety learned on Thursday that “Bohemian Rhapsody” has had its best original film nomination removed, following new accusations of sexual assault and misconduct against director Bryan Singer.

GLAAD announced 151 nominees in 27 categories, including an inaugural category for outstanding video game, along with kids & family programming, comedy and drama series, documentary, reality series, music artist, comic book, print, broadcast, and online news, and five Spanish-language categories.

For the first time ever, the GLAAD Media Awards’ outstanding film – limited release category expanded from five to 10 nominees. Films in this category include “Boy Erased,” “The Miseducation of Cameron Post,” and “Hearts Beat Loud.”

The awards ceremonies, which fund GLAAD’s work to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance, will be held in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 28, at the Beverly Hilton, and in New York on Saturday, May 4, at the Hilton Midtown.
