Films including Oscar hopeful “Moonlight” and television shows including “Modern Family,” “Black-ish” and “Crazy Ex- Girlfriend” were among the nominees announced Tuesday for the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards, honoring fair and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community.

The awards recognize films, television programs, journalists and musicians for their work not only representing the LGBTQ community, but the issues that affect the community.

“At a time when progress  is at a critical juncture, it is imperative that Hollywood tell more LGBTQ stories that reflect the community’s rich diversity — and build understanding that brings all communities closer together,” said GLAAD President/CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

The awards will be presented during a pair of ceremonies — one set for April 1 at the Beverly Hilton and another on May 6 at the New York Hilton Midtown.
