Caitlyn Jenner up for two GLAAD Awards

Caitlyn Jenner has been nominated for two GLAAD Media Awards.

The 66-year-old star's reality show, 'I Am Cait', is in the running for the

Outstanding Reality Programme award, while the 20/20 special 'Bruce Jenner: The Interview' - which was conducted before her transition and in which she discussed being trans for the first time - is up for Outstanding TV Journalism - Newsmagazine.

Jazz Jennings is also up for two awards, with her show 'I Am Jazz' also nominated for Outstanding Reality Programme, and the 15-year-old transgender star's sit-down interview with Meredith Vieira up for Outstanding Talk Show Episode.

Elsewhere, 'The Danish Girl' and 'Carol' will do battle against 'Dope', 'Freeheld' and 'Grandma' for the Outstanding Film - Wide Release prize, and Miley Cyrus, Adam Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Le1f and Troye Siva are nominated for Outstanding Music Artist.

Following the announcement of the nominees for the 27th annual GLAAD Awards - which recognise and honour media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities - GLAAD XEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis said: "For nearly three decades, the GLAAD Media Awards have propelled inclusion in media and driven LGBT acceptance forward. This year's nominees have raised the bar for creating thoughtful and diverse LGBT images and storylines, deepening audiences' understanding of LGBT people and accelerating acceptance across the world."

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 2 at The Beverly Hilton and in New York on May 14 at the Waldorf Astoria New York.
