21 Jan 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

‘Transparent’ among GLAAD media awards nominations.

Amazon’s march to mainstream entertainment power got another lift Wednesday when its smash hit Transparent was nominated for yet another award, this time from GLAAD.

The singer also claimed that Grindr was “ruining romance”, saying: “We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.The GLAAD Media Awards are traditionally a fairly mainstream affair, with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation recognizing outstanding portrayals of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities in works that reach a wide audience.

He will face competition including Against Me!, whose lead singer Laura Jane Grace has spoken out loudly in favour of equality after coming out as transgender – even fronting her own trans documentary series. Although in the past, the organization has honored the likes of Fun Home, Luba and Strangers in Paradise, the outstanding comic book category is typically heavy on superhero titles released by Marvel and DC Comics.

It’s already won two Golden Globes, for best TV series and best actor in a TV series, comedy, for star Jeffrey Tambor, and has been nominated for several other entertainment awards. And this year, GLAAD expanded its TV categories to include 10 nominees for both comedy and drama to represent the significant increase of LGBT images seen by viewers. On Tuesday, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association announced its Dorian Awards winners: Transparent took home a half dozen, including creator Jill Soloway and Tambor. In addition to Transparent, new shows, including How to Get Away With Murder, Looking, Sirens, and Vicious, were nominated in both Outstanding Series categories.

The awards news comes a few days after Amazon announced its Amazon Studios was getting into the movie business and taking on Netflix: It will produce and purchase original movies for theatrical release, and then put them a month or two later on its Amazon Prime Instant Video subscription service. The cumulative domestic box office of the five films in the outstanding film, wide release category (The Imitation Game, Love Is Strange, Pride,The Skeleton Twins and Tammy) is $134,555,414 to date, GLAAD said.
