Frank Ocean, Chely Wright and "Smash" nominated for GLADD Awards


Frank Ocean and the NBC musical drama series "Smash" are among the new nominees for this year's GLAAD Media Awards.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced the nominees yesterday. Over the summer Ocean revealed on his blog that his first love was a man, an unusual admission for an R-and-B-hip hop artist.

Also nominated is a film about Chely Wright, the first country music star to come out as gay.

The winners will be announced March 16 in New York and at ceremonies in April and May in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
