Glee has given a lot of people something to smile about.

Including the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which included Fox's hit musical series among its nominees for the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which honors progressive portrayals of LGBT characters and treatment of relevant issues in TV, film, theater and journalism.

Joining Glee in the competition for Outstanding Comedy Series are United States of Tara, Greek, Logo's Beautiful People and fellow freshman entry Modern Family.

ABC leads all comers this year with eight nominations, not least because of its dramatic lineup...

More serious fare that made the grade for Outstanding Drama Series included True Blood, Mad Men, BBC America's Skins and perennial nominees Grey's Anatomy and Brothers & Sisters, both ABC shows.

Private Practice, Supernatural, Parks and Recreation and NBC's short-lived The Listener are vying in the individual episode category.

In the race for Outstanding Film, Wide Release, the sweet-natured gross-out comedy I Love You, Man will square off against Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, Everybody's Fine, A Single Man and Taking Woodstock.

Cynthia Nixon will be presented with the Vito Russo Award, which honors openly gay media professionals for their efforts in promoting equal rights for the LGBT community.

For a complete list of nominees, go to GLAAD's website.


The Hollywood Foreign Press digs Glee and True Blood, too. Check out which shows are squaring off against those choice series at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards.
