It's awards season and GLAAD just unveiled their nominees for the most gay-friendly artists of 2012.

Six-time Grammy nominee Frank Ocean and pop singer Adam Lambert, as well as TV shows like Glee and the Golden Globe-nominated Smash are among those up for statues at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. GLAAD will celebrate with three different ceremonies across the U.S.: New York on March 16, Los Angeles on April 20 and San Francisco on May 11.

Country singer Chely Wright also earned a nod in the documentary category for Chely Wright: Wish Me Away, which provides an intimate look at country music's first star to come out of the closet.

"Images and stories from the LGBT community continue to push support for equality to historic levels," said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick. "This year's nominees enlighten and entertain, but also reflect a new American landscape where a growing majority accept and value their LGBT family, colleagues and friends."
