Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critic Assc. Announce Dorian Award Nominees

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association announced the nominees for the 2012 Dorian Awards, which honor the best in film and television.  Founded in 2008, GALECA is comprised of entertainment journalists and critics from all over America and the UK.

Among the nods are many of the films currently stealing the awards season spotlight (Lincoln, Argo), as well as some of the year’s best inclusive films, such as Keep the Lights On (Film of the Year) and Any Day Now (Film Performance of the Year – Actor).  In addition to an LGBT Film of the Year, the awards also feature some more light hearted categories, including Visually Striking Film of the Year (including Cloud Atlas and Anna Karenina), Campy Flick of the Year (including Pitch Perfect and Magic Mike), and Unsung Film of the Year (such as Your Sister’s Sister and the Cabin in the Woods).

On the television side, inclusive shows like Game of Thrones, Modern Family, and Happy Endings are among the Drama and Comedy of the year categories, while Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jim Parsons are among the recognized actors.

Sir Ian McKellan will be recognized with the Timeless Award, for having an “exemplary career [that] has been marked by character, wisdom and wit.”

Winners will be announced next Wednesday, January 16.  You can see a full list of nominees here, visit GALECA on Facebook here.
