The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation recently announced the nominees for their 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. This year’s nominations include some of our favorite horror staples, including Chucky.
Don Mancini and crew are having a stellar week as this nomination comes on the heels of the fan-favorite show getting renewed for a third season. The news broke this weekend that SYFY heard our pleas and ordered another season of Chucky and Reginald The Vampire.
The brainchild of Mancini is up for Outstanding Drama Series at this year’s GLAAD awards, and we love to see it! The Shudder docuseries Queer for Fear also got a well-deserved nomination for Outstanding Documentary. FX shows American Horror Story: NYC is nominated for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, while What We Do in the Shadows picked up a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Another show we are excited to see get some love is AMC’s Interview with the Vampire in the Outstanding New TV Series.
Other horror nominations we are currently celebrating are Nope, Scream, and Bodies Bodies Bodies getting recognized in the Outstanding Film – Wide Release category.The Netflix animated Wendell & Wild is nominated for Outstanding Film – Limited Release.

“GLAAD’s dedication to accelerating the acceptance, representation, and recognition of all LGBTQ stories is reflected in the sheer diversity of this year’s nominees. The nominations include media that represents not only a wide range of LGBTQ identities, but which also features numerous LGBTQ people of color from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds.
From outstanding films, to television, to children’s and family programming, nearly every nomination category for the 34th annual GLAAD Media Awards honors LGBTQ people of color. The list celebrates media that is enacting first of its kind, truly diverse representation. And, in addition to characters who are LGBTQ people of color, many of this year’s nominations star and are directed and written by LGBTQ people of color.” – GLAAD
