The nominations for the 29th GLAAD Media Awards are out and yes, they include a lot of awesome content that we love covering at The Geekiary. I guess we’re on the right track! This year’s nominations include Steven Universe, God’s Own Country, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and more!
Outstanding Film – Wide Release
Call Me by Your Name (Sony Pictures Classics) – Opinion: It could’ve been so much better! The film drags itself down to follow the ‘summer-romance’ trope. Sigh!
The Shape of Water (Fox Searchlight) – Opinion: I was pleasantly surprised to see a likable queer supporting character.
Outstanding Film-Limited Release
BPM (The Orchard) – Opinion: As far as I know, it revolves around the AIDS crisis. I’m looking forward to watching it soon.
God’s Own Country (Samuel Goldwyn Films/Orion Pictures) – Opinion: All of you need to watch this BAFTA nominated queer film! It’s emotional, bleak, and so real! I love it!
