Buffy Season Eight nominated for a GLAAD award! Buffy Season Eight was nominated in the "Comic Book" category, which I didn't even know they had...

The list of nominees:


Buffy the Vampire Slayer, by Scott Allie, Brad Meltzer, Joss Whedon (Dark Horse Comics)
Fogtown, by Andersen Gabrych (Vertigo/DC Comics)
Veronica, by Dan Parent (Archie Comics)
X-Factor, by Peter David (Marvel Comics)
Young Avengers: Children's Crusade, by Allan Heinberg (Marvel)

Also nominated in the "Outstanding Talk Show" category is the episode of "The Talk" with NPH.

Simon "They one won"? If it helps, I read it the right way first. :-P

Is there more going on in the series than just Buffy's one-night-stand with Satsu? I mean, I'd think to be nominated for an award for awareness of same-sex relationships, there'd have to...ya know...actually be a relationship.

I'm probably wrong. Ignore me.
Me and my proof reading. It's never good. I think it's the Twilight arc that got nominated. Did that have the Willow/Satsu scene in the plane?
I thought that conversation took place in Time of Your Life? Twilight had Buffy and Angel's interdimensional sexcapades.
Aye. It got nominated last year as well.

Two night stand. :-) And the lead up, and the intervening part, and the aftermath. And Satsu discussing the relationship with Kennedy afterwards, and Willow talking to Buffy. Plus Willow and Kennedy as an established couple interacting together in multiple season arcs. And Willow getting involved with Aluwyn too.

All of it messy and complicated and melodramatic, but with the fact that these are same- rather than opposite-sex couples taken completely for granted, except where people within the story react to it in a natural and in-character way. No big surprise to people who've watched the TV show, since it handled gay relationships much the same way; but translated into comic form maybe it's more unusual compared to the compatition, and deserving of recognition?
