The movie tells the real life story of Dallas electrician Ron Woodroof, who after being diagnosed with AIDs and  given 30 days to live attempts to find treatments from across the globe. He also meets other people living with the disease including a transgender woman played by Jared Leto.

The film has received much critical acclaim with the performances of McConaughey and Leto being particularly praised. The role is being seen as a turning point in McConaughey’s career, the actor had become known for mainly starring in rom-coms with little box office success. ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ is hotly tipped to walk away with more than one Academy Award next month.

‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ and ‘Philomena’. Elsewhere, Lady Gaga and Elton John are nominated in the Outstanding Music Artist category. Television shows nominated include 'Orange Is The New Black', 'Modern Family' and 'Glee' for Outstanding Comedy Series and 'Shameless' and 'Grey's Anatomy for Outstanding Drama Series'.

The GLAAD awards honour what are deemed outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. They cover a wide variety of media from television to movies as well as music and journalism with 38 categories. The first awards were held in 1990 and have been running annually ever since.
