Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Name "Boyhood" Film of the Year! See Complete Winners List!  


The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) has announced the winners of the annual Dorian Awards! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" took the top honor of Film of the Year. But in a surprising turn of events, Ava DuVernay beat Linklater for her stellar work in "Selma!" Way to go!

GALECA is comprised of over 110 movie and TV critics nationwide, including yours truly, and is one of the few critics associations awarding the year's best in both film and TV.

George Takei took home the Timeless star tribute because, well, he's just pure and simply timeless! This award is given to “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.” And we all can agree that Takei takes the cake!

A private Winners Toast will be held on Sunday, March 1, in Hollywood.
