While there's still so much work to be done, 2015 proved to be a relatively amazing year for LGBT folks in film and television. GLAAD, the organization that looks at the way LGBT people are represented on the big and small screen (and in the media in general), has just announced its nominees for its 27th annual Media Awards ceremony. 

Carol, the film that for some reason escaped the Academy's attention, is rightfully featured. Other expected nominees include The Danish Girl, which stars Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander, the small but powerful indie Tangerine, and, on the TV side, fan favorite Orange Is the New Black​. 

There are 101 nominees in all in 20 English-language categories were announced. There are also 46 nominees in 11 Spanish-language categories. Logo will air the 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards in April.
