On Thursday, GLAAD announced 93 nominees in the English-language categories, with cable channels earning 28 bids and broadcast networks receiving 11. Netflix Inc. earned its first nomination for the series "Orange Is the New Black."

There are 37 Spanish-language nominees, including a stand-alone bid in the novella category for Univision's "Amores Verdaderos," which included the wedding of a gay couple.
