Indie rockers Vampire Weekend have a chance to give their first Grammy some company. 

The group earned a GLAAD Media Award nomination Thursday for Outstanding Music Artist.  Tegan and Sara and Goldfrapp are also up for the honor along with Lady Gaga and Elton John. 

Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto's film Dallas Buyers Club also earned a nomination for Outstanding Film. 

The awards celebrate the fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. 

The 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards will take place over two ceremonies, one in Los Angeles on April 12th and another in New York on May 3rd.
