'Call Me by Your Name,' 'Lady Bird,' 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' earn GLAAD Award nods

UPI News Service, 01/21/2018 

The nominations for the GLAAD Media Awards were announced Friday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

"What people see in the media has a powerful impact on how they treat others and the GLAAD Media Awards raise the bar for media to tell LGBTQ stories that accelerate acceptance," GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement Friday.

"At a time when anti-LGBTQ policies and harassment are on the rise, it is imperative that Hollywood and news media tell more LGBTQ stories that reflect the community's rich diversity -- and build understanding that brings all communities closer together."

"This year's nominees showcase stories that span races, genres, ages, and geographies, challenge misconceptions, and broaden understanding and acceptance of LGBTQ people across the globe."

Ellis, as well as "Star Trek: Discovery" star Wilson Cruz and "Transparent" cast member Trace Lysette, took part in the announcement event, which was livestreamed on Facebook.
