What's This?

Unlike that of Oscars’ rough #OscarsSoWhite controversy, no such “snubbing issues” are up for GLAAD. The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards revealed this year’s set of nominees. Apparently, all color, race, and gender identity made it to the list. Among the deserving names and titles was Caitlyn Jenner’s TV show, “I Am Cait.”


According to GLAAD Media Awards’ official website, the organization was founded for the benefit of the LGBT. They wish to honor those who fairly treats and represents members of the LGBT through film, TV programs, music, and other forms of media. Since then, the LGBT people were given due recognition.

Every year, GLAAD releases the list of nominees in several categories for different media platforms. Variety reports that GLAAD has 46 nominees f 11 Spanish Language categories. For its 20 English language categories, 101 nominees are named.

Here is the list of nominees for the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards:
