GLAAD Media Awards Nominate… Pretty Much Everyone

GLAAD Media Awards Nominate... Pretty Much Everyone

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced nominees for the 26th GLAAD Media Awards, and basically every LGBT-related film or television show made the cut, from “The Imitation Game” to “Love is Strange” (which is oddly nominated as a “wide release”) to “The Skeleton Twins” to a whopping 20 different TV series… It’s fabulous that GLAAD had so much to choose from, though it does kind of deflate the honor. I mean, did “Tammy” really need a nomination?
