GLAAD Award nominees include Angels, Queer Eye





The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation on Monday announced the nominees for its 15th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which will be given out at ceremonies in three cities in 2004. The competition includes head-to-head battles between HBO's acclaimed adaptation of Angels in America and Showtime's acclaimed Soldier's Girl; Bravo's hit reality series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and CBS's The Amazing Race (in a new category created for reality television); ESPN's drama series Playmakers, HBO's Six Feet Under, and Showtime's Queer as Folk; and ABC's new hit sitcom It's All Relative and four-time GLAAD winner Will & Grace, among other matchups. The group also announced nominees in its first-ever Spanish-language categories.

Reflecting a dearth of mainstream films with gay or lesbian content in 2003, only two films were nominated for the high-profile Outstanding Film-Wide Release category: Bend It Like Beckham, which features a supporting gay male character, and Under the Tuscan Sun, which features a supporting lesbian character. Five films from five different countries will compete for Outstanding Film-Limited Release: Die Mommie Die! (USA), Gasoline (Italy), Madame Sata (Brazil), Mambo Italiano (Canada), and Yossi & Jagger (Israel).

"Special honorees" announced by GLAAD are Julianne Moore (Excellence in Media Award), Megan Mullally (Golden Gate Award), Cherry Jones (Vito Russo Award), John Waters (Stephen F. Kolzak Award), and Clive Barker (Davidson-Valentini Award). Receiving the Barbara Gittings Award--the only category to honor gay and lesbian media outlets, which are not permitted to compete in GLAAD's other journalism categories--will be the PBS newsmagazine show In the Life.

Ellen DeGeneres, whose syndicated daytime chat show The Ellen DeGeneres Show was eligible for Outstanding Talk Show, did not receive a nomination.

The GLAAD Media Awards--which the organization says "recognize and honor the media for their presentation of fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect our lives"--will be given out at ceremonies in Los Angeles on March 27; in New York on April 12; and in San Francisco on June 5.

"Fair, accurate, and inclusive media images of our lives and our families have incredible cultural power--and right now those images are more important than ever," said Joan M. Garry, GLAAD's executive director, in a press release. "This year, audiences saw stories of gay and lesbian families and children in Under the Tuscan Sun, [the UPN series] Girlfriends, and Essence magazine. They saw complex, authentic stories about transgender lives in [the cable TV movies] Normal and Soldier's Girl. Time and again, story after story, this year's GLAAD Media Awards nominees made a powerful case for fairness and equality, and it's our privilege to honor them."
