'Big Nate' and 'Monster High: The Movie' Receive Nominations in 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ+ media advocacy organization, has announced the very exciting news that Nickelodeon has received two nominations in the 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards!

Nickelodeon's Paramount+ Original Series Big Nate has been nominated in the "Outstanding Kids & Family Programming - Animated" category. In the Big Nate episode "The Pimple", a substitute teacher named Donna reveals that she is a lesbian when she introduces her wife Kathleen to Dee Dee. Dee Dee herself later falls in love with a girl named Amy in the episode "Six-Tween Candles".

Meanwhile, Monster High: The Movie has been nominated in the "Outstanding Kids & Family Programming - Live Action" category of this year's GLAAD Media Awards. In the Nickelodeon Monster High universe, Frankie Stein, portrayed by Ceci Balagot (he/they) in the film and voiced by Iris Menas (zie/hir) in the animated series, is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Since 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have grown to be the most visible annual LGBTQ awards show in the world, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences globally. The 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead Sciences, Inc. and Ketel One Family Made Vodka.

Current RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Salina EsTitties and Sasha Colby announced nominees in select GLAAD Media Awards categories in a ‘GLAAD Drag Story Time’ video that debuted on GLAAD’s YouTube today (Jan. 18).

A full list of nominees in the 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards can be found at Follow #glaadawards and @glaad for the latest news and updates.

The 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards nominees were published, released, or broadcast between January 1 and December 31, 2022. The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies, which fund GLAAD's work to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance, will be held in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday, March 30, 2023 and in New York City at the Hilton Midtown on Saturday, May 13, 2023.

“With violence, harmful legislation, false rhetoric and other attacks on the LGBTQ community continuing to escalate, it’s more crucial than ever that our community remains visible and included in the stories that the world sees in film, television, music, journalism, and other forms of media,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “This year we have more nominees than ever before to represent immensely impactful projects that entertain, educate, and grow acceptance of LGBTQ people. From new stories that debunk lies about transgender youth to kids and family programming which allows all families to be represented, this year’s nominated media images are beloved by audiences and are creating real change.”      

The 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Gilead Sciences, Inc. and Ketel One Family Made Vodka.

Congratulations and good luck to all the nominees in the 34th Annual GLAAD Media Awards!
