LOS ANGELES (AP) — GLAAD says the depiction of gay-inclusive story lines in movies improved last year, allowing it to nominate five feature films including “The Shape of Water” and “Call Me By Your Name” for its GLAAD Media Awards.
The nominations announced Friday are an improvement from last year, when the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group said there were only two feature films worth nominating. That was its lowest number of film nominees since 2003.
The other nominees for GLAAD’s top film honor include “Battle of the Sexes,” ”Lady Bird” and “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.”
GLAAD also nominates work in various other media, including television, music, journalism and comic books. Winner announcements are spread between two ceremonies in April and May.
