The 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards announced its nominees in a wide variety of categories today. The event, presented by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), honors outstanding entertainment programming and news about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues; among the year's 116 nominees in 24 English-language categories and 36 Spanish-language nominees in eight categories are the series "Mad Men," "Modern Family," "Glee" and "Grey's Anatomy"; the feature films "A Single Man," "Precious" and "Everybody's Fine"; recording artists Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert and Brandi Carlile; and publications Entertainment Weekly, The Advocate and the Los Angeles Times. 

"Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon will also be feted with the Vito Russo Award, which pays tribute to an openly LGBT individual who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights in that community. The Broadway cast of "Hair" will also receive special recognition for bringing attention to the issue of marriage equality.

The GLAAD Media Awards will take place in three cities from March through June. Nixon will be feted at the New York event, which will be hosted by Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming on March 13. The Los Angeles event takes place April 17 and the San Francisco ceremony June 5, with Emmy-winning writer and actor Bruce Vilanch serving as emcee for the San Francisco event. More special honorees will be named for these events in the near future. 

A complete list of nominees follows after the break.
