NBC’s “Smash” and Ryan Murphy’s “Glee,” “American Horror Story: Asylum,” and “The New Normal” are among the television nominees for the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards, recognizing “outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and our allies on TV, in film, and in the news,” the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced Jan. 16.

Other TV nominees include the comedy series “Go On,” “Happy Endings,” and past winner “Modern Family,” and drama series “Degrassi,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The L.A. Complex,” and “True Blood.” USA’s “Political Animals” and DirecTV’s “Hit and Miss” are nominated with “American Horror Story” in the TV movie or mini-series category. “Days of Our Lives” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” are the only two nominated daytime dramas.

“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Cloud Atlas,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Your Sister’s Sister,” and Oscar-nominated animated feature “ParaNorman” are nominees for best wide-release feature film, while “Any Day Now,” “Keep the Lights On,” “Mosquita y Mari,” “Musical Chairs,” and “North Sea Texas” are the nominated limited-release films.

“Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels,” GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said in a statement announcing the nominees. “This year’s nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues, and friends. 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.”

The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. More than 150 nominees are recognized in over 30 awards categories this year.

The winners will be honored at ceremonies March 16 in New York, April 20 in Los Angeles, and May 11 in San Francisco.
