GLAAD revealed the list of nominees for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Wednesday morning.

The awards, held annually in three ceremonies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, recognize a variety of media including film, reality television, one-off television episodes, journalists, and print and digital pieces that represent “fair, accurate and inclusive” depictions of the LGBT community. Last year’s honorees included the documentary Bully, Dancing with the Stars, Beginners, and Modern Family.

“Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick in a press release. “This year’s nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends.  Now more than ever, viewers not only accept gay and transgender characters and plot lines, they expect them — just as they both accept and expect LGBT people to be a valuable part of their everyday lives.”
