Awards Watch: GLAAD Tidings 2007

Honoring the "fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives", the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced the nominations for their 19th Annual GLAAD Media Awards tonight at the Sundance Film Festival.

Three movies are up for the Film - Wide Release award: Across the Universe, The Jane Austen Book Club and Stardust (thankfully, the GLAAD sanctioned I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry was left off the ballot). Festival favorites The Bubble and Itty Bitty Titty Committee are among the nominees for Film - Limited Release, while For the Bible Tells Me So and Small Town Gay Bar lead the documentary field. Last year's television winners, Brothers and Sisters and Ugly Betty, are back for another chance to win as well. Additionally, actor Wilson Cruz, singer Rufus Wainwright and the late photographer Herb Ritts will be among those honored with special awards.

The awards, which also include categories in print and digital journalism and Spanish language media, will be handed out in four different ceremonies in four different cities on four different dates (GLAAD sure knows how to party). For a quick look at the film, TV and stage nominees, see the comments section below.

UPDATE: Here's a video montage of the major nominees.
