‘The Imitation Game,’ Sam Smith among annual GLAAD award nominees.

The Weinstein Co.’s “The Imitation Game” Sony Classics’ “Love Is Strange,” CBS Films’ “Pride,” Roadside’s “The Skeleton Twins” and Warner Bros’ “Tammy” have received nominations for best film in wide release for the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The noms for best limited-release movies include “Dear White People” (Lionsgate), “Life Partners” (Magnolia Pictures), “Lilting” (Strand Releasing), “The Way He Looks” (Strand) and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” (Film Movement). A total of 144 English- and Spanish-language nominees are being recognized for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives.

This year’s nominees, including expanded categories in Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series, reflect the widening diversity of LGBT images and storylines that are closing the gap to full acceptance,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a press release. TV nominations include Amazon Studios’ Golden Globe winner “Transparent,” ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “Looking” and “The Normal Heart.” GLAAD announced the nominations Wednesday. There are more than 100 nominees, in categories ranging from “Outstanding Film – Wide Release” to “Outstanding Talk Show Episode.” The ceremonies will be hold in Los Angeles on March 21 and New York on May 9. The organization said that 52 comedy series and 83 drama series with regular portrayal of LGBT characters were considered, compared with a decade ago when GLAAD could only find eight comedy series and 17 drama series to consider.

Smith, the “Stay with Me” crooner who recently went public with his new boyfriend on Instagram, was nominated for his critically acclaimed album In the Lonely Hour. (Smith leads this year’s Grammy nominations with six.) Also nominated was Amazon Instant Video’s hit Transparent – about a man seeking gender-reassignment surgery – which just won the Golden Globe for best TV series, musical or comedy (as did its lead actor Jeffrey Tambor).
