Nominees for the 2020 GLAAD Media Awards were announced on Wednesday and the TV side was a healthy mix of old favorites and new buzzworthy new shows.

The only broadcast nominees in the Outstanding Drama Series category both reside on The CW, as Supergirl and Batwoman were feted thanks to the positive LGBTQ+ representation. They’re alongside the likes of HBO teen drama Euphoria, FX ballroom extravaganza Pose, fan favorite Shadowhunters, and Showtime’s L Word sequel series.

Outstanding Comedy Series sees the first GLAAD nomination for Apple+ thanks to Hailee Steinfeld’s Dickinson, while Showtime’s Work in Progress, Comedy Central’s The Other Two, and Netflix’s Sex Education are among the shows also making their debut in the category. Starz sister dramedy Vida is the defending champion, having won the award for its first season in 2019.

The other categories included by GLAAD are Outstanding Individual Episode, an award for shows without a LGBTQ+ regular who still try to present positive representation; Outstanding Limited Series; Outstanding TV Movie; Outstanding Reality Program; and most heartening of all, Outstanding Kids & Family Programming, which includes a promising number of nominees.
