Los Angeles - The Imitation Game and Transparent are among this year's GLAAD Media Awards nominees.

The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group announced the 144 nominees for its 26th annual honours on Wednesday.

Imitation Game is up for outstanding wide release film, along with Love is Strange, Pride, The Skeleton Twins and Tammy.

Amazon earned its first nod for Transparent, which is nominated for outstanding comedy series with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Faking It, Glee, Looking, Modern Family, Orange Is the New Black, Please Like Me, Sirens and Vicious.

The GLAAD Media Awards honour outstanding images of the LGBT community in areas including music, movies, TV and journalism.

The role-playing video game Dragon Age: Inquisition received a special recognition award for the complex and unique LGBT characters prominently integrated throughout the game. GLAAD's special recognition awards are typically given to media projects that don't qualify in a competitive category.

The awards will be presented this spring in Los Angeles and New York. Click here for the full list of nominees.
