26th GLAAD Media Awards – Complete 2015 Nominations

The nominees have been announced for the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, honoring the best in “fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives” in media for the year.

Among the nominees were such films as Oscar nominee The Imitation Game, Golden Globe winner Transparent, and HBO smash Game of Thrones, reflecting a diversity in nominations that the Academy probably wishes they could duplicate, given how much flack they’ve been catching over the past week.

The winners will be revealed when the GLAAD Media Awards take place in two separate ceremonies: on March 21 in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton, and on May 9 in in New York City at the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Check out the complete list of nominees for the GLAAD Media Awards 2015 below:
