In addition to Hagerty's nomination, this is also a big year for the transgender community because Eddie Redmayne was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his adaptation of Lily Elbe in the film The Danish Girl. Overall, this is a huge year for trans rights at the Oscars. Be sure to watch on February 28th!
