This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ announced the nominees for the 88th Academy Awards.
While it has been an incredible year for LGBT storytelling and talented LGBT/Allied performers, the Oscar nominations notably missed opportunities to recognize the full breadth of diverse characters and films that made history this year, like trans actress Mya Taylor's performance in the groundbreaking independent film Tangerine.
The LGBT and allied community was recognized last month at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards nominations and again at the Golden Globes this month.
HRC congratulates all of the nominees. Academy Awards will air on February 28.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
