GALECA's Dorian Awards Celebrate Their 10th Anniversary with a Few 'Favourites'



GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics has announced the nominations for their 10th Annual Dorian Awards and the clear favorite is... The Favourite. The lush period piece received eight nominations, tying with last year's big winner Call Me By Your Name as the most-nominated film in Dorian history. Joining it in the Film of the Year category are Can You Ever Forgive Me?, If Beale Street Could Talk, Roma and A Star Is Born.


On the TV side, Killing Eve and Pose netted four nominations each, including TV Drama of the Year, where they are competing against American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, The Handmaid's Tale and Homecoming. TV Comedy of the Year contenders are Barry, GLOW, The Good Place, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Schitt's Creek. See the comments section below for the complete list of nominations.

GALECA (of which Movie Dearest's own Chris Carpenter and myself are long-standing members) will announce the Dorian Award winners in all categories (including this year's recipient of the "Timeless Award" for lifetime achievement) on Tuesday January 8th, followed by a special award presentation ceremony, hosted by pop culture pundit Frank DeCaro, on Saturday January 12th.
