The GLAAD Media Awards nominees were announced Friday via a live-stream event from Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival.
According to Variety.com, the hit movie Bohemian Rhapsody was disqualified amid fresh allegations of sexual misconduct against director Bryan Singer, who was fired from the film.
An article published this week in The Atlantic quoted multiple men who claimed they were molested by Singer when they were underage.
Referring to the new allegations as "horrific," GLAAD informed Variety on Friday that they were taking action against Singer who is accused of misconduct with boys as young as 13.
"This week's story in The Atlantic documenting unspeakable harms endured by young men and teenage boys brought to light a reality that cannot be ignored or even tacitly rewarded," GLAAD said in a statement.
Singer, 53, vigorously denied the new allegations, calling The Atlantic's story a "homophobic smear piece." But GLAAD urged the news media to not allow Singer's use of "homophobia" to "gloss over the fact that survivors of sexual assault should be put first."
Singer was fired as director of Bohemian Rhapsody but he is still named as director in the film's credits.
GLAAD announced 151 nominees in 27 categories, including outstanding video games, kids & family programming, comedy and drama series, and outstanding blogs.
