OK, here's the easiest award category ever to predict. Which of these nominees will win GLAAD's award for best film in wide release — "Brokeback Mountain," "Capote," "The Family Stone," "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" or "Rent"? Considering the kudo is bestowed by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, it's easy imagining cowboys at the podium accepting a prize honoring mainstream media for fair, accurate and inclusive representations of gays and lesbians in film and TV.

Or wait a minute — maybe these honors aren't so predictable! After all, last year "Will & Grace" lost best comedy series to "Sex and the City." So suspense is one more reason to tune in when the kudofest is telecast on two networks for the first time ever: Logo on April 15 and VH1 on April 16. The other reasons to watch have to do with GLAAD usually staging an awards show full of flashy drama and naughty fun. It's always one of the most entertaining award shows of the year. has posted the complete list of nominees online.
