This includes 115 nominees in 21 English-language categories and 41 Spanish-language nominees in 11 categories.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives.

Nominees include Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner "Moonlight," The CW's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "Supergirl," ABC's "The Real O'Neals" and "Black-ish," Netflix's "The OA," "Grace and Frankie," "Black Mirror," and "Easy," Amazon's "Transparent" and "One Mississippi;" HBO's "The Trans List," NBC's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and Frank Ocean for his album "Blonde."

This year, Outstanding Film - Wide Release counts just two nominees -- "Moonlight" and "Star Trek Beyond" -- the fewest since 2003.

"For nearly 30 years, the GLAAD Media Awards have set the bar for media representations of LGBTQ people," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

"At a time when progress is at a critical juncture, it is imperative that Hollywood tell more LGBTQ stories that reflect the community's rich diversity - and build understanding that brings all communities closer together. This year's nominees have created images and story lines that challenge misconceptions and broaden understanding, accelerating acceptance and equality for LGBTQ people across the globe."

The winners will be announced at two ceremonies -- in Los Angeles on April 1 and in New York on May 6.
