By Charlotte Robinson, January 30, 2014

It’s that time of year when the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the nation’s LGBT media watchdogs announce the nominees for its 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. This is in recognition for outstanding images of our LGBT community in the entertainment & media industry. Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President stated, "Since its inception 25 years ago, the GLAAD Media Awards have reshaped the news & entertainment industries, inspiring thoughtful and inclusive characters & plotlines that have driven equality forward. This year has brought momentous progress for LGBT people & families - & our nominees have created images & stories that continue to challenge misconceptions, shatter stereotypes, & change hearts & minds of millions all across the globe."
Among the nominees are: Netflix's smash hit Orange is the New Black; ABC Family's The Fosters, BBC America's Orphan Black; HBO's Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas & Matt Damon; Blue Is the Warmest Color, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival; Dallas Buyers Club; Kill Your Darlings, starring Daniel Radcliffe & Dane DeHaan; Call Me Kuchu & God Loves Uganda, both documentaries about LGBT people in Uganda; Bridegroom about Shane Bitney Crone & the death of his partner; interviews with NBA players Jason Collins & Kenneth Faried on Oprah's Next Chapter & E:60 respectively; Ariel Levy's profile of Edie Windsor in The New Yorker; MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry; Huffington Post Live for its interview with Janet Mock & Laverne Cox & Lady Gaga for her ARTPOP album.
