GLAAD nominees include two films from Colin Farrell

Two Colin Farrell movies, Alexander and A Home at the End of the World, were among the top film nominees announced Tuesday for the 16th annual media awards organized by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Alexander and Home join Kinsey, starring Liam Neeson; the Charlize Theron Oscar-winner Monster; and the high-school satire Saved! as the nominees in the category of wide-release films. In the limited-release category, the nominees are the Spanish-language Bad Education and Bear Cub, as well as Brother to Brother, Blue Gate Crossing, and The Mudge Boy. The GLAAD Media awards will be handed out March 28 in New York, April 30 in Los Angeles, and June 11 in San Francisco. Highlights will air on MTV Networks' new gay-themed cable channel Logo.

On the TV side, best drama series nominees are: HBO's Six Feet Under and The Wire, Showtime's The L Word and Queer as Folk, and UPN's freshman series Kevin Hill. NBC's Will & Grace was the lone nominee for outstanding comedy series. For best reality program, nominees are the CBS pair of Big Brother 5 and Survivor: Vanuatu, Showtime's American Candidate, Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and MTV's The Real World: Philadelphia. The television movie division includes CBS's The Blackwater Lightship and Showtime's Jack. GLAAD also will present a Special Recognition Award to Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart for its "smart, incisive, devastatingly funny coverage of gay and lesbian civil rights issues and its hilarious skewering of the religious right's antigay agenda."
