'Transparent,' 'Imitation Game' up for GLAAD Media Awards

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Imitation Game" and "Transparent" are among this year's GLAAD Media Awards nominees.

The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group announced the 144 nominees for its 26th annual honors Wednesday.

"Imitation Game" is up for outstanding wide release film, along with "Love is Strange," ''Pride," ''The Skeleton Twins" and "Tammy."

Amazon earned its first nod for "Transparent," which is nominated for outstanding comedy series with "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," ''Faking It," ''Glee," ''Looking," ''Modern Family," ''Orange Is the New Black," ''Please Like Me," ''Sirens" and "Vicious."

The GLAAD Media Awards honor outstanding images of the LGBT community in areas including music, movies, TV and journalism.

The role-playing video game "Dragon Age: Inquisition" received a special recognition award for the complex and unique LGBT characters prominently integrated throughout the game. GLAAD's special recognition awards are typically given to media projects that don't qualify in a competitive category.

The awards will be presented this spring in Los Angeles and New York.
