Chris Carpenter and Neil Cohen were pleased to be invited to join the Gay & Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association. The newly formed group wasted no time in giving out its own annual kudos, christened the Dorian Awards, to the best in GLBT-themed film and television.
A Single Man was named both Film of the Year and GLBT-Themed Film of the Year, as well as star Colin Firth for Film Performance. Glee also won three Dorians, for both TV Musical or Comedy and Campy TV Show of the Year, plus Jane Lynch for TV Musical or Comedy Performance. On the drama side, Grey Gardens won for TV Drama and TV Drama Performance of the Year for Drew Barrymore.
Other winners include Precious' Gabourey Sidibe for the More Please! Breakout Award, Prayers for Bobby for GLBT-Themed TV Show and Beyoncé's Obsessed for Campy Film of the Year. And, taking a cue from its namesake Dorian Gray, the Dorian "Forever Ageless" Awards were given to the film classic All About Eve and gay fave actress Cloris Leachman.
