21st GLAAD Media Award Nominations

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has revealed their nominations for best television and film media of the year. According to GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios, the stated purpose of the GLAAD Media Awards is to “recognize news coverage and entertainment programming that go beyond stock stereotypes with LGBT storylines that more fully reflect the challenges gay and transgender people face.”

It’s a commendable stated purpose, but curious one when you notice that I Love You, Man is among the nominees for Outstanding Film in Wide Release. That film features one of the most detestable and chauvinistic portrayals of a homosexual by Andy Samberg. The “bromance” theme within I Love You, Man is neutral in its gay friendliness, but I’d be curious to meet one gay person who thinks Samberg’s gay-joke spewing jock is humorous.

The film related nominations for the GLAAD Media Awards are after the jump. For the full list, click here.
