2014-02-05_1317Josh Thomas’ comedy Please Like Me has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.

The ABC2 series, which screens in the US via Pivot is up for Outstanding Comedy Series alongside Modern Family, Glee, Orange is the New Black and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

The advocacy awards recognise and honour media for their representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Other nominated series include Behind the Candelabra, Orphan Black, Pretty Little Liars and Shameless.

Last week Please Like Me won Best Televsion Comedy or Light Entertainment Series at the AACTA Awards and recently tied in the Comedy category in the TV Tonight reader awards for 2013.

Series Two is currently in production and is slated for dual release in Australia on ABC2 and Pivot in the United States later this year.

    Given Pivot’s poor distribution, the ratings of even it’s strongest program are unlikely to be good.

    ABC2 ratings are not really the point here. GLAAD is looking at it from a US broadcast perspective. I don’t have specific numbers for Pivot (does Trev?). It clearly had strong US reviews. I would be disappointed if any awards were given purely on the basis of ratings. That would be like awarding McDonald’s the Good Food Guide win every year?

    @ trev.. it was on ABC2.. hardly the ratings success of FTA.

    Congratulations to Josh Thomas.. beautiful series and well deserved of all these accolades. Can’t wait for series 2.

    Obviously a politically correct award as hardly anyone watched the show. Could you blame them?
