Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association Announces Dorian Awards Nominations 


The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA), of which I am a proud voting member, has announced the nominees for its annual Dorian Awards named with a nod to the great and gay wit of Oscar Wilde.

The usual suspects ("American Hustle," "Gravity," "Her," "12 Years a Slave," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Blue is the Warmest Color") will vie for the Film of the Year against the not-so-unusual suspect "Laurence Anyways."

Lily Tomlin is deservingly receiving the Timeless Star honor simply because she's timeless! And of course, she's an “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.”

Winners will be revealed on January 21st.
