The CW’s Batwoman and Supergirl have entered the running for a GLAAD Media Award as both shows have earned nominations.
The GLAAD Media Awards honors media that it considers containing fair and accurate portrayals of LGBTQ people and issues. Both Supergirl and Batwoman were nominated for Outstanding Drama Series. In addition to Batwoman and Supergirl, Star Trek: Discovery was also nominated for the award.
Batwoman, in particular, is notable for having the first openly gay character to be the main protagonist of a superhero show. Supergirl has also been nominated for the GLAAD award three times and featured the first transgender superhero to appear in a live-action series. We will have to wait and see whether or not Batwoman or Supergirl will take home the GLAAD Award this time.
