Lady Gaga, Elton John and the movie ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ have been nominated for awards presented by the gay advocacy group GLAAD.
The 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards honor outstanding images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in areas including music, movies, TV and journalism.
On Thursday, GLAAD announced 93 nominees in the English-language categories, with cable channels earning 28 bids and broadcast networks receiving 11. Netflix earned its first nomination for the series “Orange Is the New Black.”
There are 37 Spanish-language nominees, including a stand-alone bid in the novella category for Univision’s “Amores Verdaderos,” which included the wedding of a gay couple.
The GLAAD Media Awards will be presented in Los Angeles and New York this spring.
Lady Gaga as you might have heard earlier from us, had been banned from performing in China. Yes! Apparently the country thought that Gaga’s videos and performances were a tad too vulgar for their culture and therefore the country decided to ban the star to protect their cultural integrity. Not only that but China was also worried about the affect it was having over their young generation.
However, she was then un-banned after 2 years and is now allowed to sing there again. While that’s all swell for Gaga there still seems to be a bit of a controversy about her album posters which, yes you guessed it, they were also a bit vulgar and had to be censored.
