[email protected] can exclusively announce the nominees for the 27th Annual GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Discrimination) Media Awards. Or at least as many of the 147 nominees as possible.
As expected, “I Am Cait,” the E! show about Caitlyn Jenner (inset), tops the list of best reality program nominees. But surprisingly, Vanity Fair, the magazine that ran Jenner’s groundbreaking cover story in its July issue, was snubbed in the categories of outstanding magazine overall coverage and outstanding magazine article. The Advocate, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, Time and Variety are in the running for top mags.
ABC’s “20/20” special “Bruce Jenner: the Interview” was nominated for outstanding TV journalism, along with MTV’s “True Life: I’m Genderqueer,” ESPN’s “The Courage Game,” PBS’ “Dividing the United Methodist Church” and CNN’s “Showdown in Indiana: The Battle Over Religious Rights.”
Breaking away from journalism, GLAAD’s nominees for outstanding film include “Carol,” “The Danish Girl,” “Dope,” “Freeheld” and “Grandma.”
Cast member Caitlyn Jenner gestures while talking about how she recently got her passport with updated details on it during a panel for the E! Entertainment Television series “I Am Cait” at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Cable Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California, January 14, 2016.
Seth Meyers, Ellen DeGeneres, Meredith Vieira, Oprah Winfrey and John Oliver saw their programs nominated for outstanding talk show episode.
The GLAAD Media Awards will take place at the Beverly Hilton in California for a taped broadcast at a date to be announced on the Logo network. There will also be a New York ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria on May 14, where sponsors include Delta Airlines and Ketel One Vodka.
