LOS ANGELES -- Elton John, Lady Gaga and the movie "Dallas Buyers Club" are among the nominees for awards presented by the gay advocacy group GLAAD.
The 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards honour 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."
The category of best widely released film includes the Toronto-shot feature "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," a Canada-U.S.-Germany co-production that'll face rivals including "Dallas Buyers Club," directed by Quebec's Jean-Marc Vallee.
Other Canuck nominees are the sci-fi TV series "Orphan Black" for best drama, and twins Tegan and Sara for best music artist.
There are 37 Spanish-language nominees, including a stand-alone bid in the novela 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.
