The members of the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association, (GALECA), including myself and fellow Movie Dearest critic Chris Carpenter, have chosen their winners for the 6th Annual Dorian Awards, naming the best of the best in film and television for 2014. Richard Linklater's Boyhood, a frontrunner at the upcoming Academy Awards, was named Film of the Year, while Amazon's Transparent dominated the TV prizes with five awards.
Other winning movies include Pride (for both LGBTQ and Unsung Film of the Year), The Case Against 8 (Documentary), Xavier Dolan's Mommy (Foreign Language Film), The Grand Budapest Hotel (Visually Striking Film) and Into the Woods (Campy Film). Oscar favorites Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and Julianne Moore (Still Alice) took the Film Performance awards, while Selma's breakout director Ava DuVernay was honored with the first Director of the Year Dorian.
In addition to TV Comedy and LGBTQ TV Show of the Year, Transparent netted Jeffrey Tambor a Dorian to go along with his recently won Golden Globe. The Normal Heart was named TV Drama of the Year, with other prizes going to Lisa Kudrow (for the comeback of The Comeback), Neil Patrick Harris (for his Hedwig and the Angry Inch performance on last year's Tony Awards) and Sia (for her viral music video "Chandelier").
