Great start for the new year!
For the fourth year running, the ABC television network leads nominees for media awards from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
The network earned eight nominations Wednesday for the 21st annual GLAAD Media Awards, with “Brothers & Sisters,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice” and newcomer “Modern Family” among its contenders.
The GLAAD Media Awards honor the fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media. This year’s awards – with 152 nominees in 32 categories – will be split into three ceremonies, held in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco in March, April and June.
“Words and images matter,” GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios said in a statement. “With these awards, we seek to recognize news coverage and entertainment programming that go beyond stock stereotypes with LGBT storylines that more fully reflect the challenges gay and transgender people face and the aspirations we hold for ourselves and our families.”
ABC received the following nominations:
- “Brothers & Sisters” and “Grey’s Anatomy” for drama series
- “Modern Family” for comedy series
- “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” for daily drama
- A “Good Morning America” interview with Chaz Bono for TV journalism segment
- Two nominations for “Private Practice” for individual TV episode
