The 2014 Dorian Award Nominations

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association, of which I and Movie Dearest contributor Chris Carpenter are members, has announced the nominations for the 6th Annual Dorian Awards honoring the best in film and television for 2014.

Recent Golden Globe winners Birdman, Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel are joined by the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game and gay indie fave Pride as the nominees for the Film of the Year award, with the latter two competing with Love is Strange, Stranger by the Lake and The Way He Looks for the LGBT Film of the Year prize. The nominations as a whole display a wide variety of 2014's cinematic best, with such award season favorites as Foxcatcher, Gone Girl and The Theory of Everything joining underdogs like The Babadook, Xavier Dolan's Mommy and The Skeleton Twins.

Ryan Murphy's acclaimed screen adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart leads the nominations on the television side, while actor/activist/Star Trek legend George Takei was named this year's recipient of the Timeless Award, given to “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.”

See the comments section below for the complete list of nominees. Winners will be announced January 20th.
