"Kids Are All Right," "Black Swan" Lead Film Category Nominations for Dorian Awards! 


The Gay & Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association, also known as GALECA (for which I'm a proud member yay!), has announced its nominations for the 2nd Annual Dorian Awards, honoring 2010's best and brightest in films, TV, and performances.

"The Kids Are All Right" and "Black Swan" dominated the film category nominations with three nods each. Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids Are All Right" received Film of the Year, Film Performance of the Year for Annette Bening, and LGBT-Themed Film of the Year.

Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" received nods for Film of the Year, Film Performance of the Year for Natalie Portman, and co-star Mila Kunis picked up a nomination for We're Wilde About You Rising Star Award.

I will not tell you how I voted but winners will be announced January 18!
