Congrats are in order for Caitlyn Jenner and her powerful girl squad!

E!'s acclaimed series I Am Cait has tied with TLC's I Am Jazz to win the honor of Outstanding Reality Program at the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

When the nominations were released back in January, Jenner quickly shared her excitement over the recognition on social media. She tweeted at the time, "We are proud to be nominated for a @GLAAD Media Award! #glaadawards."

GLAAD CEO and president Sarah Kate Ellis also released the following statement along with the announcement:

"For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward. This year's nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences' understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world."
