GLAAD has announced the nominees for its 23rd Annual Film/TV Awards, and the network at the top of the heap might come as something of a surprise. In spite of the critically panned and denounced by GLAAD itself for the very short-lived sitcom about cross dressing, Work It (which was recently cancelled), ABC leads the pack for nominations this year.
Deadline announced the nominations today. ABC earned seven nominations, which adds up to more than every other broadcast network put together. Grey’s Anatomy and the ABC Family series Pretty Little Liars were both nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category. ABC pulled in two nods for Outstanding Comedy as well, with both Modern Family and Happy Endings nominated. Dancing With the Stars was nominated in the Reailty series category, and All My Children in the Daily Drama category. GLAAD gave ABC Family it’s top honors for gay programming on its Network Responsibility Index a few months back, making it a little surprising that only one show from ABC Family was nominated.
Showtime received three nominations, making it the only network aside from ABC to score more than two nods. Shameless was nominated for Outstanding Drama, while The Big C earned a nomination in Outstanding Comedy. The third nomination was for The Real L Word in the Reality category - no big surprise there.
Other nominees include both Glee and The Glee Project, individual episodes form Hot in Cleveland and Drop Dead Diva and a list of fairly predictable documentaries including The Strange History of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and The World’s Worst Place to be Gay.
Three awards ceremonies are planned, in New York on March 24th, in LA on April 21st and finally in San Francisco on June 2nd.
