The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which honor outstanding portrayals of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the media, are giving props to several freshman shows this year! Which hit series are up for awards for 2014?
TV award veterans are, of course, included, like Glee, Modern Family, Pretty Little Liars, and Grey's Anatomy, but the nominees list features an influx of new shows! How exciting.
In Outstanding Drama Series, nominees include brand-spankin'-new shows like Orphan Black and The Fosters. Comedy nominees include Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which features an openly gay sergeant, and Orange Is the New Black, a show with multiple LGBTQ characters.
Reality shows have also earned spots on the nominees list, including Project Runway, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, and Small Town Security. Films with nominations include Blue Is the Warmest Color and Dallas Buyers Club.
