For something a little less snarky than the just-announced Raspberry awards, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has released their media nominations for 2006 -- covering everything from film to journalism. Obviously, GLAAD's Media Awards pick out mainstream media that portray "fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the gay, lesbian and transgendered community." The list of nominees was released from the current center of all things film -- Park City, Utah. Besides the widely-loved Little Miss Sunshine, films recognized include Running with Scissors and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which are up for Outstanding Film -- Wide Release.
Sacha Baron Cohen made waves as Borat, but many seem to forget that he was also the gay, French racer Jean Girard. On the Limited Release end of film nominees are the likes of super-sexy Shortbus and the cute, Piper/Lena romance in Imagine Me & You. Unfortunately, there are only three film categories (the last being Outstanding Documentary), and no groups for the other aspects of filmmaking like acting, directing and screenwriting. You can find the full list, with all other nominees, on their website.
