— GLAAD has named the film “Cloud Atlas,” AMC’s reality show “Small Town Security,” and the New Yorker magazine among its nominees for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced on Wednesday 120 nominees in English-language categories and 33 nominees in Spanish-language categories.

Other nominees include the NBC shows “Smash” and “The New Normal,” Frank Ocean for his “Channel Orange” album, the magazine People en Espanol, and Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka.

The awards are meant to recognize and honor media for outstanding images of the gay and lesbian community. The winners will be announced March 16 in New York and at ceremonies in April and May in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
