Los Angeles (AP) – “The Danish Girl” is up for a GLAAD Media Award in a year where a record number of nominees feature transgender characters and subject matter.

The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group has announced the 101 nominees for its 27th annual honors. The awards honor outstanding images of the LGBT community in film, TV, music and journalism.

Oscar contenders “The Danish Girl” and “Carol” are nominated for outstanding wide-release film alongside “Dope,” “Freeheld” and “Grandma.”

The organization said over 50 percent of the English-language nominations featured transgender characters and subject matter, including such series as Amazon’s “Transparent” and E!’s “I Am Cait.”

The awards will be presented this spring in Los Angeles and New York. The ceremonies will be televised in a one-hour special on Logo in April.
