For the first time in more than a decade, the Outstanding Film (wide release) category had just two nominees—Moonlight and Star Trek Beyond. On the plus side, Outstanding Music Artist and Outstanding Comic Book were expanded to ten nominees to reflect the growing inclusion in those fields.

“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,” said GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis.

“This year’s nominees have created images and storylines that challenge misconceptions and broaden understanding, accelerating acceptance and equality for LGBTQ people across the globe.”

In all, GLAAD announced 115 nominees in 21 English-language categories and 41 Spanish-language nominees in 11 categories. The GLAAD Media Awards will be held in Los Angeles on April 1 at The Beverly Hilton, and in New York on May 6 at the New York Hilton Midtown. .
