The GLAAD Awards are going to make some LGBT stars very happy this year!
The awards honor openly gay, lesbian, and transgender artists who are helping to make the world a better place to be who you are.
Nominations were announced Wednesday morning, and we're excited to see some of out faves!
Anderson Cooper 360, Glee, Modern Family, Smash, and The New Normal were among the nominees in the TV category.
Also recognized were the films The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and ParaNorman.
GLAAD prez Herndon Graddick is proud of all 120 nominees. He says:
"Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels.
Now more than ever, viewers not only accept gay and transgender characters and plot lines, they expect them – just as they both accept and expect LGBT people to be a valuable part of their everyday lives."
We couldn't agree more! The LGBT community is broader and more accepted than ever before!
And boy are we GLAAD!
